A few weeks ago, I walked into that same Anthropologie, on a rainy night, with nothing else in mind but to return a polka dotted apron I had purchased. I figured I would take a look around the store, just in case, and made my way to the sale rack. And there it was. That blazer. Hanging clumsily between folds of sweaters. One left. Size small. $70! In a moment, I slinked that blazer off of the hanger, wrapped it around me, gazed softly into the mirror, and then totally high-fived myself! Score!! Call it fate, but somehow, this little blazer and I found each other again. And when I exchanged it for the polka dotted apron, that I thank for allowing us to meet again, it really only felt like I bought this little gem for $40.
So, the moral of the story is this: When it comes to shopping, and life, hold out. If it is meant to be, it is meant to be. If it's not, move on, or be happy with what you've got. And, if you are patient and wait, you will be rewarded far more than any impulsiveness can give you.
