Pop Back to Me!

I think I have officially mastered the art of finding pieces that I am coveting when they "pop back" on retailer's websites, especially at J. Crew. Take, for example, this pleated silk skirt from J. Crew in Acid Rose print. It was love at first sight when I first saw it, but it retailed for about $350, which I thought was too much, even for a "collection" piece. I was tempted to buy the skirt when J. Crew offered it at 30% off regular price, but it still seemed too pricey. Plus, when I showed it to my husband he told me the print looked like something an old lady would wear, but, as you know, I never let my husband's quips about fashion deter me from purchases!

Unfortunately, as I debated back and forth about purchasing the skirt, it eventually sold out, so I took to checking eBay and watching for it to "pop back" on J. Crew's website from time to time. A few weeks ago it reappeared deeply discounted at a net cost of $70 after all discounts. You can't beat that! The key to my success in finding it was to check the J. Crew website at 10pm Pacific time, which is when they usually seem to refresh sale items and update their promotions. It seemed to appear as if from nowhere at this time and I snatched it up before anyone else could discover this amazing find.

As you can see, being persistent pays off when it comes to fashion and tracking down that one object of your desire. Unfortunately, this skirt is no longer available on J. Crew's website, so I've linked to some other floral options below. It is possible that it will "pop back" up again, so if you're interested don't give up hope!
