Don’t give up

“Never give up on something you can’t spend a day not thinking about”

This post is dedicated to one lovely lady who helped one crazy pregnant woman (aka me) sleep better at night. Hehe ;).

Like I said, I suffer from severe cravings. I’m obsessed with grey knits in every shape and form. When I saw this light grey mohair heavenliness online at h&m my heart almost stopped. It was sold out in every size except large, and I seriously contemplated on adding another 10 cinnamon rolls/ day into my diet.

Sadly I crave clothes more than cinnamon buns, which is why I desperately started calling the closest store to know if they just so happened to have my size in stock. Needless to say they didn’t. I stopped by the store a couple of times with no success, but I realised that there were new sizes available that had been returned. I started stalking the store even more (and the online shop for that matter).

One beautiful day one of the sweet and kind employees told me that she will keep her eyes open for me, and advised me to call in a couple of days. (She probably got tired of me stopping by looking hopeful, before leaving disappointed like a sad puppy). When I just so happened to pass by on my way to school a couple of days later, this amazing girl had put a side my size for me to pick up.

Now I treasure this knit like my own child, and I’m left with so much time on my hands not having to desperately call the store explaining my obsessive need for a piece of clothing. I am truly thankful for getting such great customer service without ever feeling the slightest attitude of judgment. Thank you!

PS. Hope you’re not taking me too seriously ;). Peace.

    I almost had the same problem in summer when I was totally into a trench coat and it was already sold out everywhere. I checked every possible store here in Berlin to find it. So good to hear/read I am not alone with this behavior. And btw the knit looks great, it was worth not to give up :)

    • Sofia Ruutu

      So frustrating right ;)? Did you ever get your hands on the trench? I hope so. Thank you, I’m so glad I got it and I love it as much as I imagined I would.

      • Julia

        Yes really frustrating :D No I couldn’t find it, but I was lucky enough to find another great (or even better) one and I am so happy with it now. I wear it a lot even though the weather is already cold and wet.

    Jee, arkkitehtuurisarja jatkuu. Taas niin mahtavia kuvia! Toi öljysäiliö on kyllä kaunis. Olen käynyt siellä lasten kanssa ja samalla reissulla käytiin Kruunuvuoren hylätyissä huviloissa. Kiva retki itään.

    Ja neulekin näyttää ihanan pehmoiselta :)

  • Awesome pics! Almost surrealistic :)

    Olen etsinyt samaista neuletta jo kuukauden ajan ja juurikin nähtyäni sen nettisivuilla :) Myymälässä ei tietenkään ollut myöskään kokoani ja olen sen jälkeen kytännyt jokapäivä, useaan otteeseen HM.comia. Valitettavasti tuloksetta :( Pitääkin käydä taas myymälästä tarkistamassa jos minäkin saisin vihdoin omani. Ihana kuulla että en ole yksin ostoskäyttäytymiseni kanssa :) yöunethan tässä menee…Onko sinun neule XS vai S kokoa? Olemme suunnilleen samakokoisia ja mietin olisiko S koko liian suuri.

    • Sofia Ruutu

      Jee soul mate! Neuleeni on kokoa xs mutta olisin varmaan tyytynyt myös s:ään ;). Minulla on sama neule tummanharmaana ja sitäkin olen käyttänyt tosi paljon! Soita myymälään! It’s worth fighting for ;D!

    Crazy pregnant woman;)!! Ahh.. I´m get you. If you want something, don´t let nothing stand in your way!!

    Oi, kuinka ihana postaus, niin hyväntuulinen ja pilke silmäkulmassa kirjoitettu. Tuli oikeasti hyvä mieli, että sait neuleen ;D Ihanaa päivää sinulle!
