It’s just not fair.
I tried this on on a whim at Nordstrom with my friend Killerspin, who’s becoming a regular helpless victim to my many fashion whims, a couple of weeks ago. God, I loved it right away! I stared in the mirror thinking, “Where have you been all my life?” and it replied “Darling, I was here all along, in your favorite color, with all the unnecessary and intriguing sort of straps that fake function that you adore. Did I mention I make you look good? Kiss me!” It was perfect and in my size (XS) too.
Unfortunately, although it was on the clearance rack and was on sale from $195 to $76, I don’t have $76 lying around for a sports coat. Even a cute one such as that. So I bit my lip and set it down to return perhaps another weekend to possibly convince my mom to buy it for me. Came back 30 minutes later to show Wei-chuan, and to my upmost dismay, it was GONE. Someone had filched it! I was SO upset, to say the least. Nordstrom has is on sale online for $129, but that’s definitely not going to fly in my book and it no longer carries my size. Way to let another one get away Deanne. Sigh.
