I’m sure you Lovelies can all read that title and instantly think of an article of clothing that you saw, fell in love with, and decided not to purchase. Of course, then you were continually haunted by the image of this coveted skirt or pair of leggings, wishing you could rush back and pick it up. It’s one of the most sad moments and it happened to me today.
I recently wrote about my overwhelming experience at Forever 21 – it was there where I first spotted it: the dress. It didn’t instantly hit me that I must need it, but it was one of the few items that made the final cut as I waited a good 20 minutes for the dressing room. When I tried it on, I fell in love … almost. The dress looked awesome, except I would have preferred if it was a little looser in the chest area. Big boob problems are such a hassle…
Unfortunately, I didn’t bring an extra size into the dressing room. If I wanted to try it, I would’ve had to get out and wait on the line again. I liked the dress a lot, but I was pretty certain the next size wouldn’t fit quite right so I decided to cut my losses and leave.
Only that decision haunted me for the past week. Since then I have been to two (yes, TWO) other Forever 21′s yet the dress was nowhere to be found. Considering the good amount they had at my first store, it was continually disappointing to spend all the time looking and coming up empty handed at the other two stores.
Finally today I returned to my first Forever to search for the dress … and it was gone. Heartbroken isn’t even the word. I know I can live without the dress, but it’s still sad to think about. I looked on their website, but no such luck. Plus, that website is ridiculously tough to navigate.
I’ll just sit here and live with the regret of the dress that got away. Now I know what Katy Perry was talking about …
Lovelies, have you ever had an item you let pass and still think about? Share your stories!
