It’s interesting how quickly your desire is re-awakened when stumbling upon something you wanted a long time ago. I’d think that time would fade away the craving, but apparently for some things this rule does not apply. Such is my story regarding the Floreat Partly Cloudy Top.
When it appeared online in Fall ’09 I was very intrigued but never able to find it in stores and back then I didn’t have the sleuthing skills I do now, nor did I have CS on speed dial! A week ago I found a bid for the top in my size at a manageable price and I knew that I still wanted it. Can I just say that Ebay brings about a bit of anxiety, especially when you find something you absolutely want but are scared of getting caught up in the bidding war and end up paying WAY more than you initially intended or felt comfortable with. This wasn’t the case with this experience, but I’ve watched some bids jump from $61 to $305 in just a couple of hours (hello Fulmar sweater skirt).
I thought the Beaded Eglantine would work perfectly with the new top due to their intricate details and color detail. They’re almost of similar length so that kept things symmetrical.
