Was there ever an item that you found, loved, and should have bought- but for some reason you didn't purchase it....and then you regretted it? The "failure to purchase," for whatever reason it occurred, seems like a black mark on your fashion savvy scorecard and haunts you whenever you create an outfit that seems like it's missing something.... oh wait, it's that thing you should have gotten.... Fail.
Maybe you don't have one of those items that got away- well that's great for you. The rest of us can sigh and think about that necklace/pair of stilettos/wallet/scarf that got away. And maybe have a glass of "whine" over it ;)
After all that build-up, here is my relatively simple, regrettably-not-purchased fixation:
This is the "Carina" bag by Isabella Fiore. Not anything crazy, but I love the hardware, color, and massive size (you could hop in there and have a nap). And although they are not common, I saw a lady with black version of this bag over her arm the other week and almost mugged her for it...
...but I didn't, which is a good thing or I would be writing this from jail.
Do you have something that got away....?
