Do you ever contemplate a purchase, decide against it, and regret doing do ever since? Oh, I have been positively haunted by some of the things that I let get away. But with Google, I find myself on occasion typing in the lost item with the hopes it pops up on eBay or elsewhere.
About four years back, I was putting my husband through a University of Michigan graduate school program and watching every penny. So despite the fact that a certain resin Marc Jacobs white guitar pendant watch necklace was at a “last call” price in my Neiman Marcus shopping cart, I let it go. I was drawn to the ease and playfulness of it. It seemed like just the thing I would throw on with one of the grey t shirts I live in and my Supergas, say to take in the Dinosaur Jr. concert that was paying down the street. Or some for some other occasion where I could, ironically, care less about the time.
With thanks to eBay, I will soon know if love really is sweeter the second time around. And, even better, my necklace will be here just in time for me to throw it on with a grey t shirt to watch the Old 97’s play down the street.
So, how about you? Anything you have let languish in your shopping cart only to regret it later?
