I bought myself a brand new, bright red coat at H&M yesterday. I LOVE IT. It’s made from cotton and polyester, has large black buttons and it’s not very warm. With a woolen cardigan or sweater inside though, it’s perfect for late fall, early spring. Without sweater it’s perfect for late spring early fall. And I will use it for years, unless the seams rip or something.
The picture shows the black since the website didn’t have the red one available.
I also got: 15 pairs of socks in different colours since all the ones I had were holey. Three briefs. A yellow sweatshirt/hoodie, shown in a lovely purple here. I kind of want that one too, but I prefer sweatshirts without hoods, so one is enough.
Last of all, I bought a lovely linen dress at a thrift store, only to find that it’s dry clean only. Fuck. I think I’ll try to wash it by hand even so. I mean, the lining is some kind of polyester or rayon, and the fabric is either 100% linen or linen mixed with some kind of shiny synthetic, so it can’t be that bad. Maybe it’ll wrinkle a little, but that’s what irons are for.
