colours


Some of my purchases from Colours in Berlin where you can buy a kilo of clothes for 14.99 (or if you're around on a Thursday, 30% off during their Happy Hour from 11am-3pm.) I must admit when I walked into the huge loft room I was very excited by the vast quantity of clothes before me but in reality the selection wasn't quite as great as I'd hoped. But I did manage to find some goodies and left with shorts, a skirt, a dress, a jumper, a tee shirt, a coat and a pair of cute gold heels. Which actually in hindsight is a new addition to just about every corner of my wardrobe. Despite the horror of having to pack this new loot into my bag while evading Easyjet baggage regulations it feels so good to finally have some new clothes after what has felt like a bit of a sparse year purchase-wise. Also looking forward to cooler weather when I can wear my new gingham shorts and striped jumper in homage to ALL Knitwear.

I don't know how the amounts will match up since I'm not good with conversions, but in south Texas (US) you can buy clothes for about $.50 a pound...it's a pretty awesome way to get stuff, but the downside is they don't go through them and hang them up...you have to go sit in a massive warehouse with no AC (and when it's 110 degrees outside it gets HOT in there) and the clothes are just in piles on the floor.

I NEED THOSE BOOTS IMMEDIATELY.
