And the moral of the story is: Buy it whilst you can!

Unfortunately for me, I've grown up with this tendency to wait and come back to something if I want to buy it. Nine times out of ten, when I go back to get it - it is usually gone and then it eats away at me for not going with my gut. This applies to this LOVELY H&M coat I am lusting over (if you can 'lust' after a coat that is...).


Not only is the price AMAZING, but the colour and look of quality just screams 'I HAVE to have'. It's either not in stock in my size or sold out completely. I've been to six different H&M's across the country including two in London (one being the flagship - and if it's not in the flagship - you've not really got much hope!).

However, last night I was awake till 4am writing up university quotes for my assignment when I thought I'd check the stock status of the coat in question. Now, whether this was my need-to-go-sleep shakes and blurry vision playing tricks on me or it was just plain luck - there it was. Size 8 IN STOCK. Normally, I'm a size 6, but I'd definitely get this beautiful piece of fashion for an 8. At this point, not only could I not keep my eyes open, I didn't trust myself shopping online, so being the silly person I am, I thought to myself: "It'll be there tomorrow..."

I'm guessing you can all see where this is going?! Yep, that's right - OUT OF STOCK. And this was at 9am, so in the space of 5 hours, my dream coat had been ripped out of my hands.

I've got the page saved as a bookmark and keep frantically refreshing in hope, but currently it is out of stock in EVERY size e so it's not looking good. I shall persevere, but the message I'm trying to get across kids is if you see something you like - BUY IT. Don't be silly like me. If I could rewind the past 12 hours, I would.
