Metamorphose red crew socks
Okay, okay. This is the number one items I have genuine regret for not buying, because I’ve failed to do so twice and the regret has just increased. When I first discovered these socks they were out of stock. But then a sock lot acme up on Yahoo Japan including these, but I was outbid and instantly regretted losing the auction. I mean, it may have still gone for way over what I willing to pay, but I really wish I had bid more. And then Meta restocked them….and I chickened out because of price (in my defence, they are pretty expensive for such a small item). And by the time I realised that no, they actually would be a good piece for my wardrobe, they were sold out again. So much regret right now, so much.
Chocolate Rosette MTO
I’ve mentioned before that I really love Chocolate Rosette and I did contemplate getting it in the recent-ish made to order. But I didn’t, because it was a bit small for my current dimensions and AP is always a bit short on me – which are very valid reasons! But still, every time I see that JSK my heart flutters and I do wish I had it, even though it would be a goal piece for now. I mean, this is sensible regret, if such a thing exists. It was the right decision not to buy it so I guess rather than regretting not buying it I regret the fact that circumstances were such that the MTO did not come at a good time for me to buy it, because let’s be honest, if I were a lot thinner length be damned I would have bought it!
BTSSB fawn fur beret
This cute thing popped up on Yahoo Japan once, and I decided it was not worth bidding super high on, as I really didn’t want to pay that much for it. But when the auction ended and I didn’t win I was very bummed and realised I should have placed my top bid at least a little higher. And I haven’t seen it pop up at a reasonable price since. Ah well. I already have a fawn fur beret and other fawn fur headwear but what can I say? Fawn fur is my major weakness.
Dramatic Rose on sale
This is where I start clutching at straws a little bit and my memory grows hazy – I’m pretty sure AP’s Dramatic Rose JSK in lavender went on sale, and I decided the sale price wasn’t a good enough discount so I didn’t go for it. That was kind of the right decision, but at the same time I do pine after that dress a little, and haven’t found it secondhand at a price I’m comfortable paying. But see what I mean about not having majorly memorable regrets when it comes to lolita shopping?
And….that’s it! I don’t really have a fifth item to add to this list. I’ve typed and deleted a couple of things because really, anything beyond those (and even everything after item number one) doesn’t really count as something I regret not buying. I mean, sure, I like a whole bunch of things I don’t own, and there are many lolita thing in existence I would like to own in the future, but nothing really regret-worthy. And I like being relaxed in that way!
