Just because Fashion Week attendees are making mental lists of which pieces to buy come fall doesn’t mean that it’s out with the old and in with the new; for every must-have jacket, dress, or shoe, there’s a beloved item that they have no plans to part with. From the front row at Herve Leger to the presentation floor at Alice + Olivia, here are the pieces that you will never, ever find on the racks at Goodwill.

Nikki Reed: “All of my big, baggy, chunky sweaters that are good for cuddling with your pillow in bed. I have my mother’s [old sweaters]!”

Kelly Rutherford: “When I was doing Melrose Place I bought my first Hermes bag. It was pre-Sex and the City, pre-everything, and it was just a little box leather, black 28 Kelly bag. Back then they would take it out of the shelf and put gloves on to show you the bag, and it was a whole thing, a very special thing. Now it’s a different thing, but it was the first thing I bought for myself. This was 20-something years ago! That’s one piece I would cherish for that reason.”

Gia Coppola: “I have this old Fiorucci pink and black stripped top that I’ve had since I was 13—I love Fiorucci.”

Coco Rocha: “A jacket I have from the 1800s…and I just got an Elizabeth Taylor outfit—one that I’ll be wearing to the Met.”

The Ting Tings’ Katie White: “A T-shirt I bought in a vintage store in Japan that’s got two fried eggs on the boobs. I just love it. I wear it constantly—everyone’s like, ‘You should change outfits!’ And I’m like, ‘No! Egg boobs!’”

Natalia Kills: “I want to say it’s these Simone Rocha shoes [points to the shoes she’s wearing]. My lover bought them for me in Paris—he just came home after work, which was actually two in the afternoon because you don’t work much in France—and he was like, ‘Oh, I bought these for you on my lunch break.’ I think I’ll be wearing them for a very long time.”

Nicky Hilton: “I’m a leather fanatic, so my leather Alice + Olivia leggings—I’ve had them for years. I actually just got a new pair.”

Olivia Palermo: “I have these amazing black fringe Bakers boots that I bought three or four years ago. Out of all the shoes they’re the ones that are still standing and are the most comfortable, so I love them!”
