The One That Got Away

I can't tell you how much I love this dress!!! For ten days I looked at it everyday on ebay counting down the seconds that I could make that bid and it would be mine.  Sunday night there I was with 30 seconds left making that bid, it was mine but only for a few more seconds before someone made a higher bid.  As fast as I could I tried to make another bid to keep the dream alive, but there wasn't enough time.  I lost the dress by just a couple seconds!  Sense that night I have been obsessively searching the web for a dress similar.  Sadly nothing comes close to my love for this dress!  If anyone has any information about a dress similar to this please contact asap!  Oh Ebay, I love and I hate you so! :o)

oh no! that dress is tooo cute! what a tragedy that it got away. i, too, was let down by ebay this weekend. i mistakenly thought the auctions ended much later than they did and by the time i checked in all three things i'd been watching had slipped away.

ugh. same thing happened with a pair of boots to me today... I have a dress that I haven't listed in my store yet, it's by no means identical, but it did remind me of it. It has a sailor front and is the colours of neapolitan icecream. It's different but of the same genre... anyways... send me an email if you're interested.

Aw... I'm so sorry! :p I hate when that happens to me on Ebay too (and it seems to be occurring with more and more frequency! Maybe I just have popular tastes? lol). *sigh* Hope you can find something similar soon!!! :)

Oh, I've SO been there. It's the worst! I feel for you, beautiful. If I ever see something similar, you'll be the first to know ...

Dotti said...

I'm so with you, dear. It's a (been) freaking gorgeous piece, that dress. And you probably start asking yourself why and how you could let go and didn't bid enough... I know this! I felt like that when I missed out on your bathing suit... :( Cheer up, everything will be fine again. I promis.

I really really adore this dress! Maybe it's because I am sucker for all dresses. I just love the style, and carefree-ness that comes with so many dresses. I also love being a girl!

That is why I try to stay away from ebay! I mean, i've gotten some great things from them before, but I've also had some real battles. Hope next time your luck is better !! :)


lots of love

Aaw, I hate it when that happens too. Something similar happened to me just last week, involving a beautiful pair of shoes *sobs*

Hope you find something similar!

It was have looked gorgeous on you, dear. I'm sorry that you lost it. I promise to tell you if I see anything like it!
I've recently started using goofbay.com, which makes me win things more easily. Of course you can also get outbid in the last minute if someone makes a higher bid, but it is certaintly easier.

that really would've looked adorable on you! hopefully something equally amazing will come along, and make you forget all about it. ebay can be such a blessing and a curse, haha!xx
