Nothing Haunts Us Like Regret

I always tell my friends, "You know that nothing haunts us like the regret of what we didn't buy." It's true.  I can tell you of the time I went to a bridal sample sale with a friend who was getting married and I found the PERFECT Vera Wang dress in my size for $350. And I passed on it because I wasn't engaged. I eventually found a wedding dress that was similar by Enzoani when I finally got engaged, but I cried for a little bit when I took my non-Vera Wang dress in for alterations. Or when I found a Chanel cropped jacket at a resale shop when they were just getting started for $86! and it was labeled "Tweed Jacket" because this was in the late 90's before everyone had a Designer Resale shop. And I passed on it thinking it would be there when I came back from sleeping on it.  Or a pair of metallic, pleated, leather booties from Christian Louboutin during a Neiman Marcus Last Call sale for $300 that I passed on because I was sure they would be reduced further.  They sold out before they could be marked down any more.  So imagine my surprise when I found these metallic, pleated, Louboutin booties on The Real Real earlier this year.  I went ahead and scooped them up and was so thrilled that I did.  I only wish I hadn't had to wait years for them.  I wore them with my silky Victoria Beckham blouse from Target and a pair of distressed jeans to drop off some items at a local charity and meet a friend for Happy Hour afterward. This is one regret that won't be haunting me anymore.
