I used this pic of Sabrina Iofredda for Numero #155 August issue, as inspiration - a sort of Russian 19th Century princess in the winter; but now that sales have already begun, the popular sizes have flown off the racks and it looks like I waited too long yet again!
I did manage to find quite a nice wool coat in Zara with a suitably looking plush hood covered in faux fur ; although once you feel the texture it tends to moult all over the shoulders of the coat.. no good!
Ah well... do I wait until next season or do I keep on the look out knowing that in a few weeks by the end of August, there will be Spring racks all over the shops? What to do? What to do?
I love waiting for sales like everyone, but if you wait that one week too long, foof... the good stuff is gone. Has that happened to you too?
