It is Christmas so I decided to buy myself a little gift off etsy. I have a thing for vintage sweaters; they are just so warm and have much more character. I found the above one for a decent price (because it is missing some beads) it came and it fits pretty good just the arms need to be rolled up.
Everything would be great except two days after I ordered it I found....
this at value village for a third of the price!! It is in mint condition not a bead missing and washed up perfectly.
This happens quite a bit to me, I wish I had a bit more of a gut feeling to hold off on purchases! The two sweaters are quite different the one I found off etsy I plan on wearing pretty much every week I don't own any light sweaters so it was a welcome change. The bottom one is more fancy and be great in the spring time as a luxe coverup on a night out.
Does this happen to anybody else? Do you pine for an item you never thrift and then find one soon after?
