I have. Many times. My most recent regret is passing on this stunning jacket:
When I first saw it, I was intrigued. I considered it for a while, and decided to pass. I’m sure I was thinking, “Where would I wear that jacket? It’s not exactly practical. Ostrich feathers don’t exactly scream ‘school drop-off,’ ‘serious meeting,’ ‘lunch with a friend,’ or even ‘night at the movies with the husband.'” I couldn’t picture how I’d wear it during daylight, and could only imagine a few after hours options for it. But then I saw Sarah Rutson (above) wearing it in such a lovely but relatively low-key way that I was left kicking myself (and still am all these months later).
Her jacket is Elizabeth and James and is no longer available (unless you’re a size 2 and shopping on ebay). Elizabeth and James has a new version that is slightly different:
So far, I’m not convinced. But is that a decision I’ll regret? What do you think?
