After what seemed to be a long weekend (with fall like weather) I began to get excited for a Mayle coat that I purchased from a buyer whose auction had ended (and I had missed bidding on). It was a coat that I owned back around holiday 2005, I rarely wore it so I sold it. I was so happy to see it for a decent price and that it was coming back into my life.
Imagine my chagrin when I received an email from the seller just 30 minutes ago telling me that they changed their mind. They refunded me (however the funds will not appear in my paypal for 3-5 day and will most likely take as long to clear now making is a 6-10 process). I am assuming that the seller either decided that they found outfits to wear with said coat or maybe wants to wait until the eBay Mayle market is hot again and re-sell for more. I know that this is something that I would NEVER do. It's bad fashion karma or maybe the fashion angels stepping in and offering an infusion to my savings.
Jon says its for the best - after chatting with Jane today I firmed up my order from the pop up and yes, the extra dough re mi will come in handy though I am really bummed about the coat. I had planned several outfits around it this coming week. C'est la vie. On wards and upwards. I look forward to my new pieces.
