Wanted: This Alexander Wang Skirt
I hope you don't mind the informality of A-Dub, but it just seems like you wouldn't mind that. You're such a young, hip designer that — even though I don't know you — you don't seem like a "Mr. Wang" sort of guy. It doesn't seem right to address you as Alex, either.
I'm writing because I've been asleep at the fashion wheel. You see, I loved — LOVED — this skirt when it came out. But, I'm practical and a mom and I live in Tucson, Ariz., (formal attire = black flip-flops) and so even though I'm sure this was worth every bit of its nearly $400 price tag, I didn't bite when it debuted in May. By the time the price had dropped, it was sold out. Everywhere. I keep it on my Shopbop.com wishlist though, and there it sits, grayed out because it's not in stock, a constant reminder of what I missed out on.
Of course, now that I can't find it anywhere, not even eBay, I lust after it more. My eyes can barely focus because I've been Googling so much this past week, hoping against hope that some site I've never heard of might have gotten a return.
Surely you yourself have experienced this sartorial sorriness, angst over the one that got away. I'm hoping that maybe, just maybe, you might have one left around the studio that you would sell to me. I would wear it every day — with a dressy button-down, with a graphic tee, with a loose tank paired with a moto jacket — and make you proud. I would. Promise.
Thank you so much for your time and anything you can do.
