catch those mice!

Sunday, August 28, 2011

I remember the first time I fell in love with Marc by Marc Jacobs. I’d just started high school and his fall collection had won over my heart. I remember saving almost to ever single picture to my computer vowing to recreate each amazing look on a dress down day (I went to catholic school my entire life & dreamed of life outside of the awful skirted uniforms). I’d usually peruse through websites with all of his amazing, and clever, accessories, creating wishlists and dreaming of the day when I would be able to afford a Stam bag or two. One of his cleverest creations- the Mouse Flat, fully equipped with ears, whiskers, and a tail, was always at the top of each of these lists. I remember seeing them & thinking, that is SO adorable and so genius! I simply MUST have them. so they've remained on a permanent to-buy list, along with Louboutin heels, & the Chanel bag I intend to purchase with my first career paycheck.

But, even years down the line, when I did have the money to purchase them I would always be a step behind. For example, they'd be on sale at Nordstrom-- but not in my size, Rue La La would be having a Marc by Marc Jacobs sale but no Mouse Flats would be in sight, or Gilt would have them but I'd be stuck talking to a teacher after class & would, literally, miss getting them by minutes, or I'd realize the Shop It To Me email would be in my spam when the sale was already over. Or, in today's case, I would not check my email until it was too late, missing them completely & kicking myself for it a little.

Are these flats fated to never fit my feet? Will they forever remain the ones that got away? Until next time, Mouse Flats!!
