Not letting it get away this time

Don’t you hate it when you see something you adore on a website but it sells out before you can buy it?

That’s how I felt about this:

The Imelda Cardigan from Anthropologie.

I saved, saved, saved for it, and got my credit card out ready one morning. Then I thought to myself, nah, I won’t get it right now, I’ll wait until I get home tonight.

BIG MISTAKE.

I got home and in the meanwhile my charming shoe print cardigan had gone on sale and SOLD OUT. I think I actually cried, followed by emailing their customer service, begged for someone to find me one, wrote my dear friend to see if she could get it from Anthro Europe, but to no avail.

Then ebay coughed up!!!! I found it …. cheaper!!

So this time, I ordered without a moment’s hesitation. Thanks for smiling on me shoe and cardigan gods! I can’t wait for this one to arrive!

Love WTP x

I don't generally buy things full price so there've been loads of things that I've regretted not buying at the time. Ebay is wonderful though, I've found the dresses I really wanted cheaper every time. The one downside is the addictiveness...
I've been planning to blog about it, especially in the case of the things I bought in the wrong size, trying to kid myself that it'd be ok...

Oh it's darling.. so happy you found one :) I once went to JCrews personal shoppers to find a piece, they were amazing! xx

Bravo! I love a happy ending! Yes, I've done that too - waited until it was far too late and - oh dear we've sold out!!

It's a lovely find - I can see why you love it so!
