The hunt!

On Friday in London I went to the COS store around my corner and I tried on a pair of beautiful classic, high waisted, beige pair of pants (think Chloe)  and since I was not fully convinced I put them carefully back on the hangar taking notice it was the only pair left in my size. Before I even landed in Barcelona I had regrets but I was hoping to find them over here. After heading straight to the COS store on Paseo De Gracia this morning I got a glimpse of hope when I spotted them followed by disappointment, the only one left in my size was already booked for another customer.

The story could have ended here, I could have given up and moved on in my mind, it’s just a pair of trousers after all, right? 

There was one option left, I made a phone call to London where they luckily had one left and my good friend Maggie is on her way to pick it up for me. Does this type of scenario sound familiar to anyone else, probably yes but there’s another group of people out there (normal people) which include most of my friends who are unfamiliar with situations like this. Probably rising one eyebrow and don’t get the dilemma hunting down a pair of pants across Europe when on holiday and thats perfectly fine, I do hope though that hearing about how far some of us are willing to act might put a smile on their faces……

    hahah. i think you saw my recent post on the black wedges? it was also entitled ‘the hunt’… and is basically the same sort of crazed search… but for shoes instead of trousers. they sound incredible and i don’t blame you for going to such ends to get them. am sure they are going to look stunning! xx

    Omg Jen, no I didn’t, not that I know of, the title I mean, I read your post though about wedges but didn’t consciously notice the title, now I see, sorry, strangly enough I had another title in mind but switched in the last minute, it just felt right and without realizing my mind had stored yours. Great post btw about wedges, have you tried tracing yours down on eBay? xx
