Nudes, Kneehighs & Silent Sobs

So yesterday was the Outnet.com's First Birthday $1 sale...I RSVP'ed, I made it on to the exclusive list, I marked it on EVERY calendar. I mean, designer dresses and swag: Chloe, Balenciaga, Miu Miu, for ONE DOLLAR. I waited all day Thursday to see if the email revealing the top secret start time had come in...nothing. So I figured, "Okay, I can go to sleep. It'll probably come tomorrow, I'll be up for my 8am class anyways, it can't be earlier than that."

Wrong.
I got up at a reasonable 7:00 am for a Friday morning. Checked my email. IT STARTED AT FREEKING 6:45. I AM 15 MINUTES LATE! "Oh shit!No0ooo0ooooo!" I wake up everyone within a five mile radius. I click the link to the sale to see if anything is left, I mean, it's only 15 minutes right?

Wrong.
SOLD OUT. Everything. A few things without the treacherous pink "Sold Out" button on the pictures were left. Size 10. I'm a 4 on my period days. Well, a nice gift for someone? TOO BAD. PSYCH! Sold out too. "No0oo0ooo0!"

I spent a good half hour clicking desperately at the pictures of the things that could have graced my closet with their timeless beauty. I mourned over the ghosts of fashion that could have been. I sobbed silently in the shower and pouted all the way to my class. Which ended up being canceled but I was too busy checking the Outnet e-mail to notice the one from my professor. Awesome. FML.

So I spent the rest of my day looking at these pictures to make me smile
