A casual Friday outfit. Can’t go wrong with primary colours!
I don’t think I have shown this coat on the blog before. If you’re squeamish, you may not want to read on, because I found this coat in a bin. Right at the end of last winter, it was stashed away in an overflowing communal bin, right next to two bin bags that I’m pretty sure contained clothes as well. While I wasn’t going to actually jump in and start fulling stuff out of the rubbish, this coat was placed there on it’s own, easily accessible and not touching anything disgusting, so I sneakily picked it up as I walked past.
It was in good condition, not dirty at all. The only thing wrong with it was that there was a button missing. The person chucking it in the bin really should be ashamed of themselves for not donating it to charity. And it fit me! It said dry clean only, but given that it was free, I stuck it in the washing machine and it worked fine. I’ve worn this lots, though I still have to move the button from the top to the bottom, and it badly needs ironed, I’ve even had a few compliments on it.
What’s your thoughts on picking stuff from the bin? A step too far?
