It’s been a while in the making this outfit. It started as a dream long after the last jacket in my size had been sold. I had eyed off this floral blazer at Virtu for ages, finally I put it on hold with the plan of returning the following week to pay for it and make it mine. Life got in the way. I can’t remember now what happened but all I know is that it was ages before I remembered that jacket and it was gone.

GONE. Gasp.

I looked everywhere for it. I offered to buy it secondhand. I begged fellow bloggers to give, loan or sell me theirs. No luck. The people who owned them loved them and weren’t parting with them. Even Liv who has always, always opened her wardrobe doors wide for me was a like “errr no way dude” when I joked about borrowing it. She was concerned I wouldn’t bring it back. Let’s face it, so was I.

Then Cait decided that she might sell hers.


If I was interested.

And I was keen. After a push from Liv I paid the piper and it was winging its way to me. It was MINE. My dreams of a floral suit had been realised. The moment was here. The moment I could match the skirt in the same print {which I already owned} with the blazer and be all “hello eighties floral power suit” about it. Today folks is about dreams coming true. About floral business suits. And mostly about complaining about something until someone caves and gives into what you want! HA.

Have you EVER had ‘I wish I’d bought that’ shoppers remorse? Did you ever find one?
