Julie Bowen has a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants philosophy to style, but there is one thing that is non-negotiable: Prada. “If it says Prada, I don’t throw it out,” the Modern Family actress told at the Huggies Hawaiian and Baby2Baby Luau Event recently, where she wore a vintage green summer dress by the Italian label. “This is vintage Prada, top-to-bottom, and these are my vintage Prada shoes,” she explained. “I’ve held on to all of this since the ‘90s in the hopes that it would come back.” Not only did the pieces come back—she saved them! “I got the shoes on eBay, and I had to sew up the straps of the dress this morning,” she said. “I’m very handy with a needle.” We’d say so! Tell us: Is there anything you just can’t throw away in your closet?

Plus, see celebrities in Prada!
