futile obsession

Is it lame that I'm completely obsessed with a jacket I can never have?  I don't mean just because of its prohibitive price (I'm sure we've all done that many a time), but because it's gone and done with and I didn't know about it until it was out of stock everywhere and unless someone decides to sell theirs on ebay and send me an email letting me know, I will never have a chance to buy one even if I do win the lottery.

It's the 3.1 Phillip Lim two-toned motorcycle jacket with peek-a-boo trench coat sleeves from his Fall 2010 collection.  And it's sort of killing me.

I ran into it the other day over at purse 'n boots.  She has tons of pictures of herself wearing it and I'd like to thank her for ruining my life.  Yes, ok, fine.  I'm exaggerating.  But for a girl who has a thing for jackets and coats in general, leather jackets in particular, and is addicted to layering, this thing is like perfection incarnate.  It was, once upon a time, available at Neiman's, Net-a-porter, and Otte.  Not that it matters, because like I said, it's no longer available.  So forget I said anything at all.  If you can.
