Coat, Mu / Top, Thrifted
It seems like I instinctively reach for this coat/blanket hybrid whenever dark skies emerge and rain threatens to fall in torrents. I suppose this is what a Snuggie feels like, minus the dumpiness. The thick material is reminiscent of fleece and sometimes when I wear this coat people ask me whether I'm wearing bedsheets or simply wrapped fabric around my shoulders. If only dressing up would be that easy.
Thank you for your comments and words of encouragement in the last post. I have inquired at a nearby public high school about their vocational night classes and they have free programs on dressmaking, among others, so I'll most probably take that class once it starts on October. Costs nothing, only a walk away, and they provide the machines. Perfect. I'm looking forward to that, though there's also one for auto mechanics but I'm not delusional. I imagine most of my classmates would be housewives since the night classes serve as some sort of livelihood training program and according to my mom, most of the manicurists in our area were graduates of the cosmetology course. I wonder if other public high schools in Manila have classes like these too.
Anyway, I've blabbered enough for today; I shall now go and bury myself in a stockpile of work. Keep safe in the rain.
