At reader Issa’s request, I was trying to take some photos of the work clothes I bought from Marks & Spencer during my holiday, but I kept getting distracted by a bargainlicious find. It distracted me in the store as much as it still does so I figured I’d share this piece instead.
I picked up this very bright red short jacket from the bargain rack at the Marks & Spencer store. It was just sitting there, all its lonesome, looking quite forlorn. I don’t even know why no one picked it up. Maybe they didn’t like the bright red, or thought it might be hard to pull off for work. Or perhaps no one liked the cropped sleeves. It ends about partway down the arm. Still, I picked it up, looked at the size, looked at the price, opened my eyes wide with surprise, grinned with glee and put in straight into my shopping basket.
