My friend and I recently stopped by the Salvation Army where I found those scary purple furry boots that I posted on Halloween (see here). This location must attract furry creatures, hopefully not actual creatures, because I'm pretty sure I spotted the inspiration piece behind Chanel's Fall 2010 yeti costume. My friend said it looked more like a ruffled bear which to me automatically made it that much more appealing.
Yeti or ruffled bear? I'm not afraid.
In the end after a long bout of indecision (mostly because it was $20) I decided it was best to part ways. Later I slightly regretted my choice when I saw Samantha of Beckerman Bite Plate rock a similar giant black furry jacket and call it "Nordic/Gorilla Chic." Well if you put it that way...
Oh the perils of thrift shopping! When indecision gets the best of you only to be followed a-little-too-late by a "DOH!" Homer-moment. "Why didn't I get that? I know exactly what I could wear it with!" or "that was the perfect piece for that Yeti-inspired look!" I can recall all to well how many moments I've had like this after thrift shopping and exactly what the pieces were I left behind.
Oh well! You win some, you lose some.
Have you ever regretted not making a purchase? What was it?
