The One That Got Away

My style has changed quite a bit since I first started discovering it, but one of the things I’ve always liked through my style changes is Edwardian-inspired fashion. I’ve never met a broderie anglaise top that I don’t like. I’ve bought so many straw hats, even though they’re super impractical for me. Show me anything white and trimmed with crocheted lace and I’ll be itching to get my hands on it. And one of my earliest pin on Pinterest is this top from Shop Ruche, which, sadly, was too expensive for me back then and was soon sold out.

So imagine my excitement when I saw the very same top at one of the second-hand shops I recently discovered. I mean, what are the odds, right? Luckily it is my size (you don’t always get so lucky with thrift stores), so of course, I snapped it up right away. I can’t wait to wear it more!

I’ve been searching for a replacement for a while, and although I’ve found a couple of brown plaid skirts (seen here and here), none of them is quite right – either it’s too short or the fabric is different. This one may be the closest in terms of length and fabric, but it’s still not perfect. But I think I should stop looking for that perfect one. I have enough skirts already, and it’s very unlikely that I would come across the exact piece (it’s only happened to be once, with this top.) […]
