Sometimes (but not very often) you meet someone and know at first sight this person will have a place in your heart forever. It's the same with fashion: It happens that you see a a special item and you are completely enchanted and never forget about. For various reasons it might happen that you don't buy it. Maybe you keep a picture of it, pinned at a wall or hidden in a drawer. From time to time you might look at it, always with a bitter sweet feeling of regret.
I believe that fashion is not just about having the key pieces from the current collection of the designer of the moment, but about developing a personal style and find his own key pieces. Don't trust in the latest trends, trust your taste!
Today I show you a few things I regret not buying. All of them are gone from the shops but I still wish to own one or all of them and keep browsing Ebay. If anyone out there has one of this items stored in the attic: Please step forward!
My unfulfilled fashion dreams:
Lady Dragon Cherry Shoes from Vivienne Westwood for Melissa
I love fruits in fashion and i love Melissa shoes, so this is the perfect shoe for me. I told myself that I already have three other styles of Lady Dragon shoes in exactly the same shape and didn't buy it. How could I ever believe this just for a single second? Once I've seen a beautiful bride wearing them for her wedding on a blog, it was just perfect and I wished it was me.
Fireworks Necklace from Tatty Devine
As a girl with a growing Tatty Devine Collection I should definitely own this necklace. I think it's among their most beautiful pieces they ever made and it brings sweet memories of bonfire night into my mind.
Metal Corset Belt from Dolce&Gabbana
I even considered hiring a smith to make me something similar to this but I just couldn't find someone who was experienced in doing anything else expect horse shoes and knives. I didn't buy this belt because it was far too expensive. My bank account is thankful, but am I?
Watermelon Skirt from Lazy Oaf
This is the most recent item on my list. Another fruit-thing. I didn't order this amazing skirt because I wasn't sure about the perfect size. I read on another blog that it's very, very tiny. Now it's gone and I'm jealous of everyone who has one.
Bikini from Agent Provocateur
This is the perfect bikini for a modern Pin-up! I love the combination of denim and gingham with the incredibly cute fake pockets. The fact that I didn't had any beach holidays planed prevented me from buying it and makes me still regretting.
Fake Fur Jacket from Country Road
I was living out of the suitcase for months when i found this jacket. I knew all I can carry with me has to be less than 30 kg. That's why I didn't buy this big fluffy animal of a jacket. Till today I can't say if the material reminds me more of fur or feathers. I've seen some similar jackets, but never one as beautiful as this.
I am very curious if you are have a list like mine in your head as well. What piece of fashion do you regret not buying?
By the way: This is my first post in English. Since I started my blog I couldn't decide about the language. I started to write in German cause there are not so many similar blogs to mine in German and for my friends who can't speak English. Let me know which language you prefer!
