Tropical Obsession

TOPJ. Crew Blythe BlouseSKIRT: Topshop Tropical Print. HANDBAG: Balenciaga Seigle City with Rose Gold Giant Hardware. SHOES: Nine West. WATCHMichael Kors Gold MK5160. NECKLACEStella & Dot La Coco Curb ChainBRACELETS: H&M Large Cuff, Stella & Dot Serpent Bangle, Forever 21 Chain Bracelets, J.Crew Triple Bangle. RING: Ardene. SUNGLASSES: Chanel.

 

Does an article of clothing ever spark an all-consuming “can’t sleep, can’t eat, can’t work until I own it” feeling in you?  Well, this Topshop tropical print skirt did just that for me.  I actually gasped out loud when I saw this skirt on their website.  My lovely lady curves make it difficult to order skirts (especially form-fitting ones) online, so I immediately called my Topshop, only to be told that there is a 2-3 week delay before we receive items here in Canada.

 

I obsessed over this skirt, glimpsing at it daily online, imagining outfit possibilities and calling the store daily.  After an agonizing four weeks, I finally heard the “Yes, we have it” I had been dying to hear.  I dropped everything, rushed to the store and almost shed a tear when it actually fit well.

 

Be warned, you will see much more of this skirt in the future!

 

Am I crazy obsessive, or has an article of clothing ever brought out the same feelings in you?

    Wow, I’m glad that you commented otherwise I would not have been able to find your beautiful blog. This outfit is gorgeous and the pop of yellow is just perfect for the weather. I’m also in love with the great skirt – perfect for dates, work, and a night out.

    I’ve obsessed over hard-to-find pieces too, often designer bags lol. I love your Balenciaga; it looks like a great everyday bag.

    I am so in love with your skirt, its simply WOW and looks so pretty on you. I have that problem too that not all skirts are fitting to well because of my curves. Great combo with that yellow blouse 🙂
