My gray coat is the wrong shade of gray. I thought I was getting a color that wouldn’t show the dirt. I was wrong, it is too light of a gray. This is the third time this winter I have had to wash it, which means bringing it to the laundry to dry the coat. It takes a long time since on delicate the washer doesn’t spin the clothes at full force. Of course I also don’t want to dry it on high because I don’t want it ruined.

All this means that I have to schedule my coat washing time carefully since I can’t wear the coat till it’s dry and the dryer doesn’t get it completely dry. Today I bought a other coat. It was on sale and it’s a very pretty dark burgundy color. I wonder if it will show the dirt.
