I am sitting here with a nasty case of strep throat pondering what exactly to write on this here FASHION FRIDAY.. I have managed to muster up about one ounce of energy to get to this computer and say a few words..believe me I seriously contemplated an absence of FASHION FRIDAY this week..I thought maybe they wont notice?

But the guilt was haunting me.. so here I am..  These pic's were actually taken a while back..  they were sitting in the archives and I adore this H&M jumper so much I thought why not. I actually went through hoops to get it..

Here's the story.. many months ago I saw this lovely vintage inspired jumper at H&M on Sunset..but they only had a size 10.  Hmm!  Believe me when I say I still I put it on, belted it, pinned it, absolutely tried to make it work, but it didn't.  They also had a black one in a size 4.. which fit perfectly..ugh!  So of course I bought that one.  But I just was not satisfied..I REALLY wanted the white one.  Ladies you know the feeling I'm taking about.  

Thus the quest began. 

I literally called or visited every H&M in the greater Los Angeles area.. NOTHING...   Mind you I was doing all of this on crutches :) 

Now this just so happened to be the week that Courtney K moved to New York..(light bulb) and knowing that it was still freezing in NYC I figured that the white jumper had to be somewhere in that city..  I mean who really buys their clothes a season ahead these days! 

So I pulled out the old trusty iPhone..went straight to maps..typed in "H&M New York" and got to calling every store in Manhattan.  Five locations, and some really nice sale associates later I found it..

A white jumper size 4..YES!!! 

So you can only guess who I called to go grab it right!!  You got it.. This is the sign of a true bestie.. Someone who will drudge through the cold rain in a city they have not even lived in for a week to buy a jumper for a girl 2000 miles away!!  Needless to say the purchase was made..the funds were exchanged and the box arrived 5 days later!! Whoo Hoo!!!

And that's pretty much all I have to say ;)

Wait I lied..
