About one year ago I walked into the Zara store in Reading and my eyes were immediately drawn to a gorgeous beige coloured coat; thin lapels, perfect length and just the right shape and fit. This was THE Zara camel coat from the 2014 A/W collection - I saw it, I tried it, I loved it - but I didn't buy it. It was quite a lot of money to spend there and then, I hadn't intended to spend that much money on my trip home from work and so I thought it was sensible to wait until payday and treat myself.
I didn't know at the time that, whilst this Zara was freshly stocked with sizes 6s and 8s, this wasn't to last and for the rest of the season the coat was sold out.
I have mentioned in previous posts about 'the one that got away' and I so I vowed to myself that I wouldn't let it happen again - it is the one item of clothing that will always haunt me! I mean really -I scoured eBay, asked on Twitter, tried all sorts to find one in my size! But the other day I was wondering the designer outlet centre near my house and I something in the window of Hobbs caught my eye as I walked past.... I tugged at my fiancee's jacket and insisted we go in. Unfortunately they didn't have my size but I asked if they wouldn't mind checking the mannequin and voila! my size! I couldn't risk being haunted by a camel coat again and so here I am, with the coat, a very happy blogger and shopper!
I do love camel and black together, there's something so classic about the two, what do you guys think of this simple look? Has there ever been an item that you never bought that you wish you had?
