It's funny how it goes. You see an item of clothing hanging in your favourite store, minding it's own business and you swoon. You weren't expecting to purchase anything, you were just stopping in with a friend / to kill time / for a gift, and there it is. Your mind flashes to all the amazing things you will do with this piece, all the ways you will style it. You scan your immediate area, worried that someone your exact size has also spotted this treasure. You grab your size, the size above and size below [things fit weird, okay!?] and dash to the changing room [you are killing time after all - this needs to be quick]. You try each size on, there is an obvious winner; it fits like a glove. You bring it to the cash, smiling like a crazy person, and launch into a "I shouldn't but I can't help it" speech that the shopgirl has likely heard no less than five times already, that day. You don't care though, all that matters is that it's yours.
You take it home, nearly bursting with the anticipation of what you will wear it with first. Suddenly your entire closet is on your bed and you have discovered you own nothing that does it any justice. You spend the rest of the season only purchasing items that show off how truly amazing this piece actually is.
Dear lace shorts, by next summer, I will own you.
