That Time I Befriended the Possessionista

So, you know the Posessionista? Of course you do....everyone knows the Posessionista. I die for her fashion prowess She's a genius.

 The Possessionista {via}
Anyway, as I was perusing a friend's football season pictures one boring saturday, and I spotted this fabulous sweater a girl was wearing in the background (yes, I totally checked out the background people). Usually I'm able to locate these things on my own. Certain stores have certain stitching or "looks" to them. I'm a possesionista-in-training. (Or, if we were truthful, I spend a lot of time on Shopbop and Topshop!)

But this one sweater escaped my fashion searching skills so, I turned to the expert.....Enter the possessionista. I emailed her the details and later that day she emailed me back. This girl is funny. She said before she could identify the sweater she had to know if sweater-girl was an ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend because she still stalks some of her husband's exe's (funny but sorry possessionista, definitely not). We exchanged emails for the rest of the week. We strongly thought the sweater was Theory at first but then decided against it - although Theory did have a close look-a-like. She finally unveiled the true retailer as....wait for it....GAP. Seriously! I kid you not. I know, I was blown away too.



And that's how the possessionista and I became besties.....or at least email buddes for a week ;)
