Did you ever have that one purchase, that one dreamy item that you simply had to have… only to have it get away? I feel like I have those moments all too often. I once stumbled upon a neon yellow pair of Christian Louboutin heels (satin, strappy, cage sandals – so bold) at a warehouse sale… in my size. Just so perfect. Alas, at $350, they were still so expensive. (but more than 80% off.) I passed them up, only to return the next day and have them gone. I still regret it. I mean, yes… they were bright neon chartreuse, but they would have been the perfect pop of neon, and a fun way to inject my relatively basic wardrobe with something interesting and fabulous. This was 5 or 6 years ago now… and guyyysss… I still think about them.
Anyway – Moda Operandi has a hilarious video series going on right now where they asked some pretty fabulous ladies to share their “one that got away.” It’s really fun to watch. This is perfect because I feel like Moda Operandi has so many incredible pieces that would otherwise get away… but because you get ’em at the trunk show, you get them before they can sell out. Case in point: the Clover Canyon dress from Wednesday’s post. It is now sold out… everywhere!
Right now I’m coveting all things Isabel Marant – I’m sure the pieces above will sell out the second they hit stores! The dress, the top, the skirt, and the sandals. The sandals… just so dreamy / perfect for summer. I’d feel like a Greek goddess wearing them. If I had an unlimited budget, I’d buy all four and run off to the South of France.
But anyway – watch the video… and then tell me your “one that got away” in the comments!
