[item] Women’s long winter coat / jacket
[purchase info] Purchased at a thrift store for $8
[time in my possession] Approximately 10 months
[last used] Once, but it looked ridiculous…
[difficulty level in getting rid of it] Hard
[replacement item] None, although I would buy one if I could find one in my size.
[info] I bought this knowing it was too big. I wear a size 6. This coat is a size 20. You should have seen the look I got when I took it in to be altered. “You want to do what? You know that’s going to cost you about $60-$75, right?” I was prepared to spend maybe $40 at the most. I just love the colors and style of this coat! I don’t want to get rid of it.
