the one that got away

We've all experienced buyers remorse at one time or another. But what about feelings of deep regret about that one item that slipped through your fingers? That's how I feel about this vest.

I first spotted this vest around the holidays two years ago at Jcrew. When I left my house for this particular trip, I swore that I was not going to buy anything for myself. This was a gift buying shopping trip and nothing else. When I saw this vest, it was love at first sight. But, sadly I walked away empty handed staying true to my rule for the day.

Two weeks later, when I came to my senses, it was sold out EVERYWHERE. Bloggers knew this vest was special and it started popping up all over the bloggerverse in outfit posts - just furthering my depression. I wanted this vest so much that I turned to Ebay. Ebay listers were smart - they knew this particular vest was in high demand and any vests that were listed were well over the initial selling price.

Fast forward to two years later... I'm still seeing this vest pop up on outfit posts. So, you can imagine my excitement when this vest popped up in my email box from Jcrew Factory.

My prayers have been answered and this vest will finally be mine.
