Giving away stuff can be hard...

It's been in a couple of closets for more than 20 years. I've worn it often but not lately.
"It" is a full length, black fake fur coat with a red satin lining. It was soft and luscious. I just don't wear it anymore - no place to where something like that.

A little back history: Twenty plus years ago, I lost 80+ pounds. I was still chubby but shapely and being tall, a local clothing store that specialized in "larger" sizes asked me to be one of their models.
I had fun, earned points towards clothes and bought the coat.

Yesterday I gave the coat to a thrift store. I hope that another chubby woman buys the coat, wears it and feels glamorous - like I did, more than 20 years ago.
