Webster’s dictionary defines loss as the “failure to keep or to continue to have something; the experience of having something taken from you or destroyed.” (You know this is going to be a very serious post because I began it with “Webster’s dictionary defines….”) For the past few days, I have been experiencing loss. This Y's by Yohji Yamamoto jumpsuit is the one that got away. It went on sale, I hesitated, and now it’s gone.
I find myself mindlessly clicking on the link only to see the words “Sold Out.” Again, and again, and again. Maybe this time it’ll be there...no. I am Glenn Close slumped on the floor, the light of my computer monitor going on and off.
It’s the perfect jumpsuit, and I don’t even particularly care for jumpsuits. It’s beautifully minimalist, almost workmanlike, but the neckline is so graceful. Avant-garde and familiar all at once. An intellectual jumpsuit, if it’s possible to have such a thing. OshKosh B’goshdarnnit I shouldn’t have let this one slip away. I wile away days wistfully thinking of all of the pieces I could have paired it with. And that little sliver of side boob. Ah, my kingdom for a little sliver of side boob!
Everyone processes loss in their own way. I am a 90’s R&B singer on my knees in the rain, rending my t-shirt as I scream “baby, please come back.”
