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?
