Does anyone know Jason Wu? You know…the designer?

A feeling sunk in when I realized I would never be able to buy this perfect blouse:

After seeing it in Gossip Girl, I immediately scoured online shopping websites.  “Price is not an issue!  I must have it!!!!” I thought to myself.  Alas, Neiman Marcus writes on the page “We’re sorry, but we are unable to ship this merchandise to Canada.” My last chance was Holt Renfrew, as on their site, they claim to carry Jason Wu pieces at the Toronto-Bloor location.  What a disappointing trip.  Almost every sales person either said to me that no such designer existed or didn’t even know who I was talking about…*GASP*!!!!!!  How does a sales person in luxury retail NOT KNOW Jason Wu?!?!  The designer that made those wonderful creations for Michelle Obama?  Hello?!!?

At this point, I just want to know…where can I find a store that carries this top in Canada?!?!  Maybe it’s not meant to be…..If you’re in Canada and you’re looking for the same piece but have given up, here are some other inspiring lace overlay tops to find.
