Don't let the bleak sky fool you, it was anything but cool yesterday. Rather humid and eerily still on the contrary. The ashen hue however, does accurately portray my sulky mood. I had high hopes of nabbing at least one piece from the Isabel Marant x H&M collection that released Thursday. As I tried in vain to fall asleep the eve of (the anxiety about my plan of attack a nagging stimulant), I coordinated the ways in which I would wear my new loop yarn cardigan and silk print dress. With alarm set [right next to ear] eventually my mind surrendered into a pseudo state of "rest."
6:45 am. I'm hitting the refresh button on my browser every 30 seconds optimistic it's giving me the edge over the other thousands of other girls doing the same thing. At 6:55 am, I get the "YOU HAVE BEEN PLACED IN A QUEUE" message!!!!!!!! WTF [now hitting the refresh button ferociously]?!?! By 7:02am, I admit defeat knowing it's a lost cause. Even if I were able to get on, by now (yes, a mere 2 minutes into the on-line launch) everything would have been scooped up. But then again, I'll never truly know BECAUSE I WAS "IN QUEUE" until 8:00am.
Ugh, what a huge, gigantic let down. All that anticipation for nothing. So whatever already. I'll just wear my fake Marant-look-a-like-but-not-really Forever 21 heels to make myself feel better. And this bead embellished jacket with my slouchy boyfriend jeans because it sort of, kind of (just a little bit) emulates the Isabel Marant "all in the details" effortlessly chic vibe. One day, just maybe I'll be able to afford pieces from her actual RTW collection. [insert SAD FACE WITH TEAR emoji here]
On another note, I'm trying out a dark brown shade of lip color (Paramount by MAC) for a change. It goes on really, really brown (like doo doo brown) so I blended it with a berry-esque lip gloss to give it a more burgundy tone. I kinda like!
