Fashion Dilemma! Caught Between Two Slashed Tanks

I first saw this Ann-Sofie Back Purple Slashed Tank ($87, originally $173) and thought, how cool. Then I met its fashion-forward sister, the black version! That's when everything got confusing.Here's the situation: The black doesn't come in my size — a UK size 10 is big for me — but I am in lust with it. The purple does come in my size, which means it would fit me perfectly, but I don't love it as deeply. It's definitely still unique, but doesn't have that same impact as the black. See what I mean? I can always get it taken in, but I'm thinking it's already pretty pricey for a tank. Plus, I can't return or exchange it. Help! What would you do?

First off that shirt is not worth $87. Second I actually prefer purple. The slashes stand out more with the lighter color tank. But for you I would buy neither. You don't want the purple and the black doesn't fit. Sometimes you just have to let an item you really love go.

Myeh, I don't like either, especially not for $87.

I say purple - I often find that things I buy that I'm not 100% in love with I end up liking a lot more, usually because it adds a dimension to my wardrobe I didn't have before because I'm not usually drawn to said color/style (in your case, purple). However I find that I always regret buying things that don't fit right just because I'm in lust with it. Half of the beauty of great clothes is how it looks on YOU, not just how it looks. I think that even if you tailor the black one, it's not going to hang the same way, as the designer intended. There's a chance you could end up with a fit that is even better, but I'm not sure how big that chance is. However, regardless of the fact it is a tank top, the price of it justifies tailoring.

Sounds like you're destined to not own either. If it's not the color you want/correct size, you won't end up wearing it a lot, if ever. Trust me, I've made this mistake myself.

You may not love it as much as you think you do if it is ill fitting.

throw a blazer over the black one and you'll get the relaxed look.

get the black coz believeme, i've been through that. if u get the purple, u will always have that desire inside of u, kinda like its just gonna be running through ur mind the whole time, besides, it fits u wonderfully, so no need to be afraid u might not wear it

Get 2 Hanes tanks or t-shirts and a pair of scissors. It's really not that hard.

Get the black one and have it altered. If you get the purple one no matter how much you like it in the back of your mind you're always going to wish it was black (and a $90 tank is an expensive one to have some regrets about).

Go for the purple. If it doesn't fit right you'd never wear the black anyways.
