It all started with this $12.95 top from H&M.
I went into H&M to buy the infamous green and navy striped tee, and when I saw the unbelievably low price (but obvious questionable quality) I couldn't resist picking up this one too.
A day or so later, I was in JCrew and saw the citron pencil skirt.
I knew the two worn together would be like peas & carrots, milk & cookies, peanut butter & jelly...oh, you know what I mean!
Too bad they were sold out of my size.
I tried to forget about the skirt, but it just kept nagging at me and I became increasingly obsessed with having it.
Like a hunter stealthily stalking it's prey, I began my search.
But it was sold out online.
And in 3 other NJ stores.
I was just about to give up completely when a sales associate suggested using the "red phone" and have the company locate me one.
As a 100% instant gratification girl, I slightly begrudgingly agreed.
When I want something, I hate to wait.
Unbelievably, I received an email an hour or two after submitting my request notifying me that they found one and were shipping it to me.
Within a week my coveted skirt arrived from Boise, Idaho.
Within a day I wore it.
