And yet another time my holy grail balenciaga jacket (see right) woefully slips through my fingers... Even with the recession people don't balk at shelling out $800+ on ebay for that jacket. I kick myself when I think back to winter 2007 when it was on sale at Barney's for $500!! *cry*
In other news, my trusty old laptop finally died. It was 6 years old. I am still waiting to extract all my bookmarks and stuff from the hard drive, thankfully (let's be optimistic) it was a motherboard problem so my junk is SAFE. On the other hand, I had to dip into the JJ shoe fund to get myself a new computer. And to think I was eyeing a pair of the SS09 Pradas! I tried the slingbacks on in a boutique and fell in LUH right then and there.
by the way....
how terribly unglamorous is summer?
even in this disgusting, suffocating Italian heat I pore over HQ's of fall shows. I literally drool over thigh high suede boots and wraparound shearling jackets.
Yoox's new fall arrivals are not helping AT ALL. Is anyone else maniacally checking back to see if the fw08 jil sander origami coats come in?
