lint free existence coat

the look:

top - old jacob
dress, skirt and vest - old kaliyana
jacket - old olio organics
coat - old kensie
scarf and hand warmers - old h&m
hat - old nine west
boots - old marsell

the tale:

some time ago, i stopped buying any piece of black clothing that attracts lint and any sweater that sheds copious amounts of sweater lint. this holds true even if i love the piece of black clothing or sweater. no exceptions. ever.

How can you tell in advance? Of course sometimes it's easy & obvious, but when it's not?

jessica: if i am online shopping, it is a bit of a crapshoot. in a bricks and mortar store, i test the clothing. with black clothing, i will find something in the store that sheds fibres and run it over the black clothing. with sweaters, i find something in the store that is dark and run the sweater over it.
