Absence Makes the Cart Grow Deeper
Pieces that got away, last chances, and (just as good) consolation prizes.
For your Sunday, a selection of pieces that captured my heart that are either currently/forever unavailable or are surely soon to be. I’m not a monster, so for every unavailable option, I included a currently available alternative! For you, in regard to clothes, does absence makes the heart grow fonder? Do you forever carry a torch for the one that got away (for me, these Gauntlett Cheng double plaid trousers—if anyone has a connect, HIT ME UP)? Tell me in the comments or here, like and share this bad boy if you want to be an absolute doll, and as always, thank you for spending a few minutes with me, where and whenever you are.
Here’s my now-traditional cute trap of Alma, in case that’s what you’re here for. Yes, the bone is as big as my forearm and yes, she still prefers chewing on my forearm.
If you like these posts, please let me know by liking and commenting here or on HR’s Instagram, subbing to the HR Substack (this) for as little as two bucks a month, one dollar per bonus post (subsidized subs available HERE) or for ZERO DOLLARS, share (tag me if on IG so I can see and thank you)!
Thank you SO MUCH for your support, whatever you are able and willing to do to help is extremely valuable to me and I’m honored to be a small part of your life on the web.
