Once Upon a Starry Night

once upon a starry night

I searched high and low for this dress at Forever 21 when I was home, but never found it.  By the time I tried to order it online, it was out of stock- buyer’s regret :(  I mean seriously, this dress is so perfect for me!  At least through polyvore I can dream about how I would wear it… Do you guys have any stories about something you wished you purchased when you had the chance? 

P.S. Oh, and I changed the layout a bit!  The link to my archive is now located at the top and is viewable as a separate page.  What do you think about the changes?

    I did try to do that, but I guess the store near me never had it in stock! Weird, right?! Thanks for the advice though!

    Would it be possible to call the store and ask if they can track one down? If you're really nice, and it's at another store, they'll sometimes ship it to you or to the store. Although, perhaps with Forever 21's quick restock policy maybe not. :(

    Oh dear, am sorry to hear that. I did order this dress for a friend and she looks very pretty in it. I do think that it will go very nicely against your skin tone and be totally lovely on you. I have a lot of buyer's regret (or so i called it) but truthfully i don't need another top, dress or skirt for ages and everything that just slips through my fingers, I'll just comfort myself with that knowledge.

    I know how it feels, The same happened to me a long time ago with a dress in Forever21 but it was in the store, i went there I saw it, was so perfect for my friend's wedding but I decided to see other options and come back next week. Next week was sold out and my friend's wedding was the next day =( I had to buy another dress in Forever 21, more expensive and not my style. I learn my lesson and that will never happen again.
