Can't Live Without It: 12 Lucky Editors' Most Treasured Pieces

"Just thinking about what would happen if I lost this watch makes me want to cry. [It's] my dad's from the early '80s/late '70s; a vintage, classic two-tone Rolex. It has sentimental value to me first because it's my dad's and secondly, [because] my mom has a matching one. It was one of his first big gifts to her. So whenever I wear this watch I think about my mother and father, and how long they've been together—they're celebrating their 40th anniversary this year! [This] immense sentimental value [is] compounded by the fact that my dad is the most punctual man alive. Everything I look at [this watch], it reminds me to be on time!" - Eva Chen, Editor-in-Chief

The contents of the average Lucky editor's closet are unpredictable. Sometimes our racks and dressers are filled with spontaneous sale purchases, all stuffed between the spoils of a few good trips to the flea market and some spend-y things we spent months saving for. But then there's the weeks when we won't add anything new at all. Instead of shopping, all our energy is dedicated to sorting though piles of old stuff we don't use anymore.

When these major wardrobe purges happen, and most everything we own is tossed in a giant Hefty bag and sent to Goodwill, the 12 items listed above will always remain untouched. Invaluable, irreplaceable and timeless, they are all pieces we'll never get sick of or stop wearing; each one just gets better with age. Although we can't lend you our exact treasured possessions (we wouldn't last one day without 'em!), we've done the next best thing and found similar (and in some cases, the same) versions of each.
