unexpected moments

If I'm repeating myself, I apologize in advance.

I LOVE this cardigan. Finding it was an unexpected moment. While in Houston, during the Christmas holiday, a friend and I were at Rice Village. We happened to stop by the Gap. While we were both standing there, an employee walked passed by us and I couldn't help staring. She noticed it too and asked if I needed help. I wanted her sweater. It was on sale and there was literally 5 racks of them in grey, brown, and black. For $32, I should have bought all three colors but I resisted. If they had a million and one of them, surely the price will go down again and I can get myself more. So... I settled with just buying brown.

If I could (and not that I can't), I would be wearing it everyday. It is the most coziest thing to wear. I wear it at least 2 times a week.

Ready to buy the other two colors, I discovered that I couldn't. I probably called a half dozen stores with zero luck. How was that seriously possible? I also visited two stores. In two weeks, did everybody jump on the cozy cardigan bandwagon? It seems so because one person recognized it the first time I wore it to work and at one of the Gap stores I went to, a fat, old lady was wearing one. Ironically, that hasn't deterred my love for this cardigan.

I'm happy to say that I did score one more. I got another one in black (via online). I really wanted the grey one. We take what we can get, right? I'm hoping that a grey one in small shows up on eBay soon.
