Imitation really IS the highest form of flattery. Months ago, a good friend of mine wore this powder blue H&M jacket to visit me at work one day. I first complimented it (as my eyes bugged out in excitement), then collected the details and visually stored it away into the back of my mind. While on a trip to Chicago late last year, I scavenged the nearest H&M and was lucky enough to find the freakin jacket! Not only did I buy it, but my envious and trendy mom also got herself one. No surprise there. The lesson is to always collect details on your fashionable loves at first sight. Also, never feel ashamed of wanting something someone else has...chances are they aren't the one and only living human who has it. And if they're secure enough, they'll realize the compliment you're paying them.
