Last summer I spent about 3 months in Italy, and I went to my dads hometown a handful of times during my trip. My dads town is a place called Civitanova, in the region of Marche (basically its the middle right of the boot, right on the Adriatic coast) anywayyy...! It's amazing for a few things, one being the beach, the other being the SHOPPING! There are oodles of awesome stores, albeit, many are quite unaffordable on my student budget...
But his town is also great because there are many factory outlets there including TODS and Fornarina. So about a month ago I bought a black leather jacket because my brown one wasn't as practical.. and I settled on one from ZARA. When I was in Italy this summer though... there was this leather jacket that I so badly wanted at the price tag of about 220Euros... approx 340 Canadian... sooo as much as i loveddd this jacket, after 3 months of gallivanting.. i was dirt poor, so needless to say no jacket.
And now, scrolling through the website (when i should be doing homework or sleeping) i find this: http://shop.combo.it/Template/detailProdotti.asp?LN=UK&Sito=storeGB&CP=E08BE3MITCW06&CA=E08BE3MITCW060XS or
ON SALE FOR € 154.00!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
so fricken tragic.. I mean, I like my leather jacket and all, but this, this jacket was my soul mate, trying it on in both Florence and Civitanova, I knew it was the ONE. but my funds bet me up..
sooo, I guess i'll just have to buy another black leather jacket on my next trip back to Italy..which is in t-minus 4 months: ahhh!
