A Day Late

Today I had a You Snooze, You Loose moment. Admittedly, it stinks because I've been lusting after these Octopus post earrings almost daily. They sold out on Anthropologie's website and because I'm a glutton for punishment I waited a week before calling to see which, if any, stores still had stock. I finally phoned Customer Service, but these darlings sold out everywhere after being marked down from $268 to $69.95. I'm holding out hope that maybe one day we'll be reunited à la eBay. Sigh.

A glutton for punishment? That is a new one for sure.

that sucks!

Oh, such a bummer. Something tells me that putting it out into the universe like this might yield some results though. Fingers crossed for a happy belated bday gift for you!

Those are very detailed earrings! Sorry to hear that you missed out on the sale. I completely understand--I try to do the same thing and always end up missing out.

LUUURV those. Have been lusting after them for ages as well.

I'm crossing my fingers for you. I experienced an Anthropologie earring miracle earlier this summer. Favorite the link to the former product page on anthropologie.com, and refresh that link at least once a day. I managed to snag a return this way, weeks after the item had sold out online and was no longer available at any store.

I'm sorry you missed out! This is why I've avoided posting about a jacket that I really want from Anthro... not that many people read my blog, but I don't want the few who do to lower my chances of getting it when it goes on sale ;)
I hope you get a second chance at these... they are really interesting and unique!
