I covet thee



Have you ever wanted an item of clothing so badly it feels like you'd cut your right arm off to get it? No? Just me then! Seriously I want this Topshop jumper more than any item of clothing. And Im talking more than that YSL ring that everyone seems to have, More than a Speedy 35, More than a pair of Jeffery Campbell Litas (I joke, I think they are fug!) Im one of those people that covets things, waits a bit, then when it comes to buying it I never do or Im too late.

This jumper is a perfect example. I remember looking at it in store thinking HMM I'll leave it a few days, go back, still there. All is good. Wait a bit longer. A girl comes into work wearing it. OMGZ NEED THIS NOW. Go to Topshop, gone. Go online. WAHOOO size 10 still in stock. Oh I'll order tomorrow! Dont order. Next day goes out of stock. Next day goes into sale. Call every Topshop in a 60 mile radius. No luck. Trawl eBay relentlessly, find one my size. Forget to bid. FML. Repeat eBay process.

Other items in the past that I've wanted REALLY badly are in the past are the original Kate Moss pansy playsuit, the Barbara Hulanicki dress (which I managed to find months later on a last chance to buy rail in my size in the Birmingham Topshop!), My much loved leopard moccasins from Primark, a Vivienne Westwood orb necklace and MAC Stereo Rose mineralize skinfinish! Even as recent as that Peter Pan collar dress that divided everyones opinion, all items that I've wanted so badly! I think I just get obsessed with the idea of owning something, especially to the point where I think about it too much and

Do you have any items that you hunt for relentlessly? Or seen something you want thats constantly out of stock, but always check "just incase"! Doesnt have to be high street either, Im sure we all have a designer lust. Mullbery Alexa... HELLO! Let me know in the comments!

  1. I actually have the jumper in question in navy, I saw it and I was like omg if lily was here she would be sooo jealous(if it was beige) unfortunately it was in a size 14 (im a 12) and it's on the big side anyway so I would recommend you get an 8. It looked so awful its all baggy and shapeless and was really short on me! I'm returning it tomorrow because it's really not as nice as i expected xxx

  4. Aww, Lily! I do this ALL the time. I wsa lucky and found this jumper in the Topshop in The Strand- they had quite a bit in, and this was only like a week ago. I'd offer for you to borrow/have mine but I'm a 16..it'd be a friggingtent on yuo hon!
    Unfort I don't live in London otherwise I'd go back & check for you- maybe someone you know does?

  5. ohh Lily, I'm guessing the primark look-a-like just isn't doing it for you then? I do exactly the same as you, I don't buy it and then I end up thinking about it soo much that I have to go buy it before it drives me crazy! I really hope you get this!

  8. OMG this has happened to me soooo many times. Remember the Topshop grey jumper with pearls sewn in that Alexa wore once and was much coveted? I cried actual tears over that jumper and refreshed topshop.com on my laptop for nearly a month hoping it would come to me. I also saw an amazeballs vintage shirt in Urban Outfitters one day, didn't have the cash to buy it so hid it in the shop (i know im a doosh) and then went back the next day to get it and it was gone. I was literally in shock for 2 weeks and would go in and wander around the shop looking for it in case someone had just randomly left it down somewhere. I can remember the pain like it was yesterday (bites fist) :(

  9. Mulberry Edie Large Electric Blue Spongy Patent; she hasn't even come out yet and I've got it bookmarked and a savings plan ready. Knowing my luck, by the time I do save up for it, she'll be gone. I know exactly where you're coming from!

  10. This happened with a pair of shoes I really like in Topshop I didn't buy them, waited, then they were in the sale, waited another day still there, then went online again... and they were gone! I kow quite a few girls who work in my local Topshop So I made one of them ring round every other store in the area with no luck. I've never been gutted about something so small!
    Call head office, they might be getting some back in stock.

  11. Sorry to hear you still haven't got hold of the jumper. I was the same with Kate Moss's pansy print dress, but I happened to stumble across it in the sale last week. One left. My size x

    ReplyDelete
  12. I done that with a bag on ASOS over a year ago and was angry at myself for not just ordering it, luckily it came back into stock.

    shame about the jumper though =/ i tried on like it on in primark but alas it was too high necked.
    hopefully you get it on ebay or something eventually

  17. YES! My first ever pair of leopard print pumps, oh they were my perfect pair. They were from Barretts & had a pink bow & ribbing, I literally did wear them to death. I still have their carcasses, I can't bear to get rid of them... even if I can't wear them! I'm always trawling eBay for them but I'll never find them as it's been about 6yrs since they came out. Similarly, FML!

    ReplyDelete
  18. It always happens! I get hesitant about something so I think Oh I'll leave it and think about it and BAM it's gone.
    It's weird you blog about that particular jumper, I was in Leeds topshop the other day returning stuff and randomly found that very one on a rail of tons of random jumpers. The label was ripped so there was no price and it turned out it went into the sale at 25! Of course I got it. (not to rub salt in your wounds!) I adore it. I really hope you find it, if I see any more I'll defo pick one up xx

  20. You should definetley keep checking ebay, I wanted a topshop stripey tunic worn by sienna miller and it was sold out in all shops and went into the sale where my friend then bought it for her sister! However I continuously kept checking ebay for it and after a few months I finally found one and won it, yay for me lol! So keep looking. And atm I really want one of those beaded wooly turban hats from topshop but they are completely sold out and no where to be found on ebay :( x

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm the complete opposite, I have to buy it there and then otherwise if I can't get my hands on it I go nuts! I then leave it for a week or so, and then if I end up not liking it (or borderline poverty) I'll return it. Usually I don't, and then three months down the line hate it after wearing it like, ONCE, but ce la vie.

    That is a gorgeous jumper! x

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's actually quite rare for me to feel like this about something, I think I'm just too fickle and forget about things too easily! I kind of did get obsessed with having my Topshop jumpsuit though, it was just pure luck that they re-stocked it quite a while after I first saw and fell in love with it. I also wanted that red piped navy military coat from the winter Primark lookbook SO MUCH but I'm pretty sure it never went into production :,(

    ReplyDelete
  23. TOTALLY with you on this. I did this with jewellery from Past Times, didn't buy it... went into sale and then my size was out FML xxx

    ReplyDelete
  24. So good to know this effects other people lol My eBay watch list is jammed with things I must have but have put off buying. Watch lists seem encourage this behaviour. I've been lusting after a Criminal Damage dress ever since it was released months ago but have only got as far as watching one on eBay, still :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. So... the thing I want most at the moment is...

    A KITTEN!!!!!

    Not a conventional "want" but I just have to have one!!! I'm currently saving my pennies so that I can give a kitty a good comfortable home!

    Oh and I'd also like a DSLR camera...

  26. Gorgeous jumper! Yeah, I know that feeling. :P
    Want brogues for a long time, but they seem never to go on sale. Eventhough it's winter, and come on; who's going to wear brogues when it's freezing outside?
    But if i'll see a clothing item that i really want i'll just try to sew it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. im opposite, if i see something, i buy it there and then without thinking of price etc. then i regret it and take it back.. then a few days later i wish i had kept it, go to re buy it and its gone! I just bought an Alexander Wang bag, it hasnt even arrived yet and im beginning to worry about money and not being able to afford to, well live! I used my christmas money but i just keep thinking of all the other stuff i could have got for the same price! But i know i will end up keeping it.. and eventually selling it on ebay in a few weeks/months.

    Im trying to give into my spending habits, and have deleted all my "save for later" items on asos in the hope i wont buy anything more (i so will)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh my goodness I actually could have written this, and I'm not joking! I get so obsessed over certain things. Like recently this Topshop navy velvet peter pan collar dress, but didn't have the £95 for it. Now though? It's of course sold out everywhere and going for a fortune on ebay. Boooo. In fact it's nearly ALWAYS Topshop that these obsessions come from. I've so often rung up a million Topshop stores, haha. I'm glad I'm not alone!

  29. yes! i was was craving a superdry shoody for over a year, and got major green eyes anytime one of my friends got one. I finally forked out to get one, and now i barley wear it....oopsss.

    Jumper is very great, i hope that you find one !

  31. I am so like this it's crazy!
    I think through and end up not getting the item, because I don't really need it- or I have something similar so I'd end up not wearing it. But then, I'll have a sudden thought of me wearing it, looking fab & think FOOOK! I wish I bloody got that, and I am certainly one for being on ebay constantly to find the item of my dreams that I stupidly let go.
    I am a person who will buy clothes for the sake of it though, I don't mean to, and I am now a lot better at it- so in a way I am happy I go through this process, yet some times there are items that I pray I will find again & just want to kick myself VERY HARD!

  32. I know exactly how you feel!

    I constantly think "should i buy it", "i'm buying it", "can i buy it?"...

    You should definitely wait a couple of days after seeing something to see if you still want it. That way it isn't just an impulse buy, you actually have to own it!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh I love this jumper! I feel your pain, I've been like that a few times, though I don't think I'm as committed as you! I have only trawled through ebay a few times and each time I failed at winning the item. UGH! Haha xo

    ReplyDelete
  34. Definitely! It's normally Topshop where I see something and so and look at it for a little every now and then debating whether I can afford but leaving it and then buying loads of other things that would have gone with it perfectly :'(
    I'd then normally decide to buy it only to get there and them not have it in my size or it being discontinued! GUTTED.

    It also happen with a Cable Knit Jumper in H&M that mysteriously disappeared when I finally decided to buy it :(

  35. Kinda looks like the dress Edie Sedgwick wears in Factory Girl! Gorgeous

    ReplyDelete
  36. It does look quite big, so you probably would get away with an 8.. maybe even a 6, there is a size 6 on ebay but I am sure you will already be aware of this! Yes, I was the same with the Barbara Hulinicki, lucky I got it and the Paul and Joe Sister sailor dress, luckily I got that too! AND the French Connection cream wizard dress. Then I was like that recently over the same Asos Peter pan dress xxx

    ReplyDelete
  37. Haha yes definitely the Mulberry Alexa!! And some items from ASOS which I keep looking at and then close the page. x

  38. following net-a-porter on Facebook- big mistake, now all I do is stalk what's new in because the goodies flash up on the news feed. Currently- Marc Jacob's Natasha Bag.

  40. Dude i have the jumper and so does my friend - its really not that great. try to get over it! ive given mine to my sister, thats how much i dont like it - and i have exactly your taste, when i watch your hauls its like a game of spot the items from my wardrobe! in real life, it flares out at the bottom in a really unflattering way, it looks like youre wearing a massive doily. haha. and the white just looks chavvy. hope that helps you get over your pining...and im not just saying that to help you get over it. xxx

    ReplyDelete
  41. i totally have a thing about studded leather ankle boots. I did get a pair from primark once and they were perfect!!! I literally wore them all the time until they almost had no sole left and now i cannot find any ones like it anymore. every week i check all online shopping pages i know to find anything like it..so far unsuccessful..((

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love that jumper, I hope you find it. I've always wanted the Kate Moss pansy dress in purple and have been looking for it for years now, I also want the Mulberry Phoebe bag which they no longer make so the only place to find it is on eBay but I'm scared to buy it from there as I'm worried I'd end up with a fake! xx

  47. I'm like this with all Topshop jumpers and cardis! They went through a trend of all knits and I SO SO wanted one.. Still do and I don't think I'll ever get over them. There so gorg and look so comfy! Next pay check.. IF they still have them, I'm definitely down there now lol!

    Fab post :)

  48. I do thing's like this all the time. I put off buying something because I still want to have a look around, see if I can spot anything better, maybe look around online or whatever. Decided that I should of got the first item in question and then it's gone. Just a lesson in procrastination really. I need to learn that when I instantly fall in love with something I need to buy it their and then.

  50. story of my life, glad i'm not the only one. in the end it practically possesses you just b/c you don't have it and want it and you get a bit of that crazy look in your eye. but i thought good things were supposed to come to those that wait...apparently not in shopping.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would totally lust after that jumper too...it's so pretty. I hope you will be able to find one soon. Also, I have the same Peter Pan collar dress from Asos, except mine is the navy and black swatch.

    I hesitate...and then become relentless when they sell out, too. Crazy, aren't we?

  52. These boots from Zara.. http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/uk/en/zara-W2010-s/11002/113035/TWO-TONE+FLAT+BOOT

    Like you I kept thinking 'Wow they are £109, I'll wait till my loan comes through.. I'll wait.. OH FUCK my size has gone.. I'll go into a store.. dad can get them in London.. all sold out.. SALE HALF PRICE NEED TO PHONE STORES..' etc. and never ended up getting them :( I am SO picky with boots, my current pair are going to die on me soon I know it! I must have had them reheeled maybe 5 times now and they are due another appointment at the shoe repairers. Simply heartbreaking! You'll end up finding it and then never wearing it after that though! x

    ReplyDelete
  53. All the time! And whenever I decide to finally go get that item, it's never at the mall I actually go to: it's always at the one across town of course!

  55. OMG YES. Allll I want right now are a pair of black, faux suede, knee-high black boots with a "peter pan style" collar, like these

    http://www.aldoshoes.com/ca-eng/women/boots/over-the-knee-boots/80553544-strazza/91#

    but I'm a size 10 and they're never in stock. I've searched everywhere for lookalikes, but there's always something just slightly different, like the type of fabric, or a small wedge heel, or a bow instead of the collar. It makes me so sad that I won't have the perfect boots this winter!

    ReplyDelete
  56. You've read my mind! I've been looking for this too (but had my eye on the black more than the cream). I ordered something similar in crochet from Topshop recently and although it's soft, soft, soft... it's just not the same! :( Hopefully they'll get more jumpers in stock! They'd be stupid not to - I figure it's been quite popular and in demand x x

  59. I do this with thrift store items. What is worse is I can't ever find them again. There was a perfect emerald green banana republic dress for $9 US and I was really broke so I didn't get it. I still regret not buying it. Ugh.

  60. I know exactly how you feel. I do get quite obsessed at the thought of owning certain things to the point I don't stop thinking about it. I really wanted the Barbara Hulanicki dress too and I actually found it in oxford st tried n the 10 which was too bag and went back to get an 8 and both the 8s that were in before had been taken. I actually ended up stalking a girl round the store to try and get the one she was holding but she took it to the bloody till and bought it - I was so angry!

    I'm trying to be more sensible these days though, when I think back to things I really felt I couldn't live with out and then couldn't get hold of I do realise life did go on. Definitley hard though!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Aww, sorry about the sweater... I hope you luck out and still find one! I know how much these obsessions can drive a person crazy. I've let too many things pass and regret it later -- to the point that I lose sleep and my appetite (which is saying a lot because I love to eat, lol). So as a general rule I buy things I love right off the bat.. no more thinking; I just get it or else regret it. (Maybe I should have a t-shirt printed with that little motto.)

    And isn't it crazy how the Litas are just EVERYWHERE now? I think there are few who can actually pull it off, and I am certainly not one of them. So, no thanks. :p

  63. When I used to work at Fornarina we had this really cool coat that would come in every season but in slightly different shapes. I kept waiting and waiting until I found myself hating the job and quitting and then the three Fornarina stores in the US closed completely. Along with my chances of having said coat. I've scoured ebay with no luck but I'm crossing my fingers

  64. one of those topshop peter pan collar tunic/dresses with the see-through bit at the top in bottle-green, i found one on ebay but it was petite and i'm 5"7 - i'm so tempted just to buy the maternity version

  65. Lily you speak my life, i'm learning my lesson! I have two thoughts though, my first is I love it in the store so should buy it right away, the other is maybe it's just 'store love' and I'll not care later, but then if I think about it again in the next 24 hrs I'll be back and buy it. Then it's out of stock in my size, i've often resorted to buying in other sizes lol! This jumper is lovely though, im sure someone will see this and probs send you one.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I do this really often, and either wait til it is too late and they are sold out, and debate whether to pay mental ebay prices, or get the item, it looks awful, and leave it in my wardrobe until the end of time, unworn.

  69. I have a habit for doing that too. I also resist buying things until im in town so I can use student discount and not have to pay £4 for delivery haha such a cheapskate. Theres a blouse in topshop that i really really wanted so i went on ebay and found one and send a message asking if they would do a buy it now.. i found the knit you want so you could try and send them a message maybe?

There was this ONE dress, the most perfect dress ever by 'numph' that I didn't buy for my end of uni summer ball...I've regretted it ever since and 3 years later I still check ebay once a month for it. It pops up every now and again but not in the right size. One day I'll own it!

  75. Are you sure you wrote that post? I could have sworn it was me!

    Haha. No but thats exactly how i am when it comes to buying things. Exactly! I used to wait and be lucky enough to find the item on sale. Lately i've been having the "buy it before it's gone" attitude because of my bad luck.Then I go ahead and buy it just to find the item 3 or 5 days later on sale!! Great.

  79. I came across the most stunning pair of camel shoe boots from tk maxx and absolutely fell in love when i tried them on. however, i had no money so hid them in a basket in the home range of the shop (so sneaky). A week later I came back and searched high and low in those baskets and literally had to be dragged out of the shop by a friend as i refused to believe they were gone. then 2 weeks later said friend rang me up and said she was in the store and they were there- i lost my voice i screamed so loud. and now here they are, in my possession <3

  80. I know what you're feeling! I saw the most amazing dress in a store near my school and I wanted it so badly but I said to myself I'll just wait a bit longer, then a bit longer until the store was on sale..and then I get there and the owner said she just got the last one and I was SOOO mad!!

    XOXO

  86. Oh do I! haha I am one of those people that never spends money, I have so many things that I have wanted but never bought!

    One of these things is the topshop coral polka dot cup dress if you know which one I mean? I didn't buy it when it was in topshop because I didn't want to part with my money and then when it went in the sale I couldn't find one in my size and everytime I looked on ebay it was like £79.99! BUT yesterday I finally bought it for £12.60 on eBay haha, I couldn't believe it, such a lond wait but I got a great price lol.

    I've been reading your blog for a couple months and I really like it, you live quite close to me aswell, nice to see someone from near me its funny when you mention places near where I live haha!

  87. Hello Lily:)
    I actually bought this jumper when it first came out, and as someone said above, it is humongous, saggy and not terribly well fitting. My biggest peeve has to be how badly it sheds fluff onto every other item of clothing, which takes a century to remove. Basically, i cant wear it to anything darker than itself, and after one was i imagine i shan't be bothering with it again:[

    Would make a great winter nightshirt though!

  89. Just found this post, but oh my god, that is so me! Currently my 'I shall buy this soon' list is so long and no doubt they'll all go soon. A River Island shirt- gone. Topshop Joni Jeans- gone. Missguided skirt- gone! I really need to stop doing it. Number one procrastinator over here!
