you know when you find those pieces that just make your heart skip a beat? you see them on a stranger, and pray that they are nice enough to tell you where they got them (plus the store actually still have it in stock, right!?).
this skirt was one of those pieces for me. i first saw this great skirt on a gal at go blog social and i couldn't wait to ask her where she got such a great skrit (hoping she wasn't going to say something ridiculous). and i was over joyed when she told me she got it from h&m. yep! h&m. i knew i needed to track it down. so i went to the local one on the plaza. then called chicago, then dallas. but no luck. well, i just so happened to be in dallas and was helping a friend shop for a dress to wear to a wedding. i asked one of the gals working if they had this skirt, and she said they had sold out of it. i was crushed. i found a black midi skirt that i thought was pretty great. and while i was helping my friend try stuff on, i checked out the "go-back" rack. and i was in luck! there was one of these tan painted looking midi skirts on the rack. and then i almost died all over again when it was my size! i snatched it up, tried it on (it fit, thank goodness), and even got a little discount on it. it was a shopaholics dream come true. then trying to figure out what to wear with it. i knew i wanted to wear a my go-to colorblocked sandals, and a shirt to showcase my waist. i loved the muted color of the blush blouse paired with the midi skirt. hmm, what fun it is to finally find that one piece you just have to have. it's really just the best, right? any piece you've hunted down that you couldn't be more thrilled about? i know i'm not the only one:)
