Fancy Regrets and Fancy Outfits-Week of the July 24
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell
I am guilty of something I advise aspiring fancy-istas to NEVER do... procrastination.
I came across these pants when I was in Mexico City. I kept putting off going to Zara, forgot about them when I returned to the states, got caught up in 4th of July festivities and plain ole life AND now these pants
are sold out, no longer available, G-O-N-E!
While I am huge supporter of the "Wait, Sleep on it" rule (Fancy Rule: Most impulsive purchases are regret filled ones. Unless it is the LAST one, walk away, sleep on it and if you still want it in the morning--GRAB IT!) to avoid a different kind of regret purchases, procrastination never results in a happy ending.
If you love it, get it before it's gone or you will regret it -- that goes for fashion and love! You might miss out on paradise.......
I am resigned to scouring ebay for them. They are by Zara, Spring/Summer 2011, so if you happen to come across a pair in size 8, please, please, please email me.
And for your viewing pleasure....I now present...
