Here's the problem with being deeply materialistic, you are always wanting and longing for "things". Most of the time I get over it, and move onto the next item - but there are exceptional occasions when I just can't seem to let it go.
The prime exception in recent times was a blouse. Just a friggin blouse! And yet I think about it alot...tragic, isn't it?
In my defence it wasn't just any blouse. It was by Acne.
At the time I saw it I only vaguely knew who Acne were...I just knew that I loved the print and the design: a perfect blend of classic and urban. Exposed shoulders, drape-neck and long sleeves.
I first spotted it on Caroline and I loved the way she wore it, with denim cutoffs and a Balenciaga - such a perfect combination.
Once I saw that image I was stalking said item on my-wardrobe.com and net-a-porter.com. The only reason I didn't buy it? A very practical reason of price - £260 left me gulping.
Now of course I wish I had just said "sod it" and clicked "Add to basket".
I guess this will always be "the one that got away". And I don't think I am quite okay with that yet but as a wise woman once told me: "there will always be nice things" so I will repeat that mantra until I am.
Tell me I am not alone! Is there anything that you wish you had bought when you had the opportunity?
