Shopping Fate

Years ago, I had a conversation with my friends Nicole and Michelle about the concept of shopping fate. Nothing beats the feeling when you find the perfect item and the last one is in your size or its just been marked down. I'm someone who becomes obsessive when I find an "it" item that I want and I can usually hunt just about anything down. But shopping fate goes the other way too - when you're so close to getting the item you want and it slips from your grasp. This happened to me last night. There's a gorgeous pair of yellow/sage Tory Burch espadrille wedges on Shopbop that I've been thinking about for a while and they went on sale for 30% off. My size was available and it said there was only one pair left - BINGO! But by the time I filled in my credit card information and completed the check out process, the shoes were no longer available. In the process of 5 minutes I went from complete elation at scoring the perfect wedges at such a deal to losing out on them. Of course I instantly began searching other sites to find the yellow ones but they're sold out everywhere. I ended up buying the wedges in navy which weren't my first choice but they were a steal and will still be a great shoe for summer. Sadly, I still don't think I'll be satisfied until I find a pair of great yellow wedges. Keep an eye out for me!


  1. I TOTALLY remember! These wedges look awesome -- I'm sure you will find a pair soon enough :)
