harv adams

letter sweater - vintage, polka dot pants - else, boots - modcloth, bag - thrifted dooney & burke, lippy - revlon really red

I like to think about who may have owned my vintage clothing before it came into my hands. Usually it's pure conjecture, but with this vintage letter sweater, I have a name. Harv Adams. He played basketball. Or baseball. I'm not not a sporty sort and can't tell what the ball on the big letter "A" is supposed to represent. He was either tiny or maybe...not in high school? Because this sweater is small. Other than that, I know either he was in the class of '60 or he was number 60 on whatever team he played on and he went to A-something school. Then, we get to start guessing. I think he played basketball and he was really tall and skinny. He was kind of shy and although he wasn't the star player, he was good. He liked academics and hoped to study at a good school. What do you think Harv Adams was like? And do you make up stories about your clothes' previous owners?


  1. Hello Dear! I like your blog so much! This is my first visit here but definitely not the last :) Would you like to follow each other? :)

    Have a nice weekend.

  3. What a fun idea! I've never really taken too much thought about who may have owned my thrifted items before me. I love this sweater and the colors are really cute too...what a great find! Following you now :)

  4. Such an adorable sweater! Those boots are great, too!


  5. It's fun to speculate, and weird to think how many people can potentially own an item over many years, I love when you actually know where something is from!
