These are just a few of the items on my personal OMG-I-need-them-so-bad-or-my-life-won't-be-complete shopping wishlist. You know that list - those long sought-after items that you either didn't think you needed at the time or waited so long for a deal that you missed it completely.
The stuff that you scour the blog sales and Ebay for - the items that had long since hit sale, and second cuts (and probably third cuts if it had lasted that long) but that you do mental calculations on how much close to retail or over! you'd be willing to pay if you miraculously could get your hands on it again. The dress or skirt or jacket where your one wearable size suddenly stretched out over two - three - four different sizes.
And then ... one day you may hit the virtual shopping jackpot where your Holy Grail flits by your over the Interwebs. And you squeal and make grabby hands at the monitor and clickety-click your way to a purchase.
And then ... delight of delights? Closet is D O N E? Or more likely for me - utter disappoint?
Case in point - The Anthropologie Field Game cardigan and Anthropologie Greybar coat. I searched for them forever. I ended up purchasing them in a mad swirl of fingers over the keyboard when I found them on Ebay. I got them. Sighed. Tried them on. Realized they were more special in my mind than they could ever turn out in real life. Then never wore either item and in fact ended up selling them both on my blog sale.
I got the grey Field Game cardi, and major props to you ladies who had all looked so super-fantastic in yours, because when I got mine, I could not make it work with anything for the life of me. It was way too busy busy busybusy for me.
