a mom struggles to stay sane and fabulous in park slope
Friday, February 19, 2010
Hello Fashionistas, I actually busted out of Park Slope for the weekend to DC with my husband and son. Um yeah, I know, it's cold here too...so i'm heading further south on Sunday to Florida.
Any way, I have something much more important to discuss. My heart is pounding, and I think that it might just come out of my chest in a minute. I have been obsessed with a very well tailored, incredibly structured and yet romantically draped trench by Burberry Prorsum. I had actually saved the picture of this jacket in a file and was going to write about my plot to kidnap this high priced Spring favorite. When the most terrible thing EVER happened. It's out of stock.
I can't even find a picture of this jacket to show you (the picture I posted is from the same Spring 2010 Burberry line just to give you an idea of the fabulousness). Ahhhh! My trusty net-a-porter.com has had the jacket on their website, PROMISING that they were re-rodering, and still posting the jacket's picture (so that I could look at it every day and plan it's adoption process). And now, nothing. They have taken it off their website and it is no where to be found.
I kinda feel like throwing up.
Okay, so I wasn't sure how I was going to get the jacket, but I at least wanted to know that it was an option! I certainly couldn't afford it's hefty price tag with out selling my first born. And to be honest, I like him and I think he's worth more than I can get for him (plus he's a "must have" accessory here in Park Slope). So, I started to come up with some other ways that I could get the money...
I could sell my life story to the Lifetime Network; but it's not over and probably will get more juicy. I could tell my parents that my dog was really sick and needed to barrow the money for a surgery; but then our dear family dog actually passed away, and now that just seems insensitive. I could bag saving for private schools, and send my son to public; but with a name like Cash he might get beat up. I could sell my mom's fur? Ha! Just kidding Mama.
Some of you might say that I should feel better that the jacket is MIA. I can stop obsessing now, it's not an option, right? Oh, you don't know me at all people. This just upped the ante. I want this coat more than ever!
And I will keep trying to get it..until I find it, and decided that it's already "out."
