You know when you fall in love with an article of clothing, buy it without question on the spot, and then see it on sale for a million percent off the next month? It’s THE WORST. Not only does my bank account give me that “you’re a dumbass” look, but I take it as a personal insult that something I found to be perfectly amazing has been banished to the sale rack. I’m financially irresponsible and apparently have terrible taste. Wonderful.
Well this ruffle, low-back, wrap top from French Connection totally redeemed that sting of defeat I’ve felt all too often. I saw it in the store, fell in love with it, but somehow managed to resist its seduction. A month later, I was visiting friends in NYC and doing some shopping in SoHo and—BOOM!—saw it for 50% off in my size. I win! It’s that victorious feeling that has me fully addicted to eBay.
