Wishlist: Vintage Monogrammed Cardigan

I'm a bit sad posting this…the image below is a cardigan I was coveting heavily on Etsy for a while, but didn't have the money for. It sold not that long ago.
It was perfect…perfect colour…monogrammed 'L' and the right size… sigh…

Now I'm on the hunt for something similar…


Please tell me I'm not the only one this happens to…it might cheer my up…

  1. That sweater was a gem (I know you don't want to hear that!) Maybe you could try and find a vintage "L" and diy one it wouldn't have the same charm as that beading, but may be cheaper. I lost out on an etsy item a few weeks back on an embroidered black purse similar to yours but with it being winter I knew I wouldn't use it so wanted to wait a bit and take it as sign if it was still available once it got a tad bit warmer....I wish you good vintage luck in finding a new one:)

  2. Yes, I covet many an item on Etsy, some in my size, out of my price range, only to see them whisked away by some unknown buyer. You are not alone my dear.

    But I agree with Daphne, maybe DIY one?

  3. Not in the slightest! I was just thinking about this numbers the other day and I think that, ultimately, I'm maybe able to purchase about 1 in 250 or so vintage items that I add to my etsy wish lists, so countless more "get away" than ever come home with me. Of course not all of those are items I covet equally. Some are just nice pieces that catch my eye, others I do hope that maybe I'll be able to purchase, and some take my breath away and become what I start saving my pennies up for. It's the latter usually that linger in my memory long (years!) after they've sold and which I then frequently try to find similar version of later on. I will keep my eyes peeled to no end for a similar "L" vintage sweater for you and let you know immediately if I see one.
