this bright turquoise hacking jacket from j crew is my little unicorn. i instantly adored it but missed out because i thought that the colour would be too bright for work. then i waited until it was marked down "enough", which meant that by the time there was a big markdown, it was sold out in my size. you know it's serious when lamenting its loss has even made it here on the blog.
my dear bestie K, found this on ebay for me. it was new with tags and the buttons were still covered with tissue. she emailed me and when i did not respond quickly enough, she phoned me (i think she waited a whole 3 minutes). we snagged it for below retail which is incredible. i wore this outfit to work on one of our charity denim fridays and my colleague said "that blazer is so you", so i guess it was not too bright after all. timing j crew buys are tricky because they have many great sales, but next time, i'll trust my instincts, and get it while i still can.
