The One’s That Got Away

The one’s that got away. Not men, we know what you were thinking #tuttut. We are talking about those pieces that slipped through your fingers and never made it out of the shop. The pieces that shoulda woulda could’ve been ours but we made the wrong decision and walked away. Granted, this all sounds pretty dramatic and shall we say, a little over the top but we bet you know the feeling. There are certain moments that for some reason the stars weren’t aligned or we were being just down right silly and didn’t buy certain items we now regret. BIG TIME

Looking back there are key items that still leave a gapping wardrobe hole and stick in our minds as ones that got away. The tan leather Michel Perry multi strap heels in the Harrods sale in 2008, the Maje gold leather boots last year some other shopper snapped up after dithering for too long and more recently recently *this* top.

When we say it was love at first sight we wouldn’t be exaggerating and after seeing it on a few of our fellow bloggers like Liv, Fran and Kelly, we knew we had to have it but…dun dun dun……SOLD OUT.

Then you really want it right?!

You should know us well enough by now to know this style ticks all the boxes. The retro frills, the pretty crochet, a little bit Stevie Nicks/a little bit Laurence Llewelyn Bowen {not a usual style icon but the cuffs are him completely, right?! lolz} so when this little baby was restocked recently we just had to reclaim it from the ones that got away to the ones we could wear everyday.

Yes, us and said blouse are going to be very happy. No regrets.
