*Just In*

 As I was walking around Magazine Street this weekend enjoying a delicious iced coffee from PJs, I stopped at a clothing store that I had never been to before. 
Being the on-a-budget-shopper, I was a good girl, resisted temptation and only looked at the items that were on sale. 
And that's when I came across this bad boy:

 Yeah, yeah so it's not the real deal.... and please save the "how dare you buy a replica?". But being serious most of us "working girls" (in this economy) can't afford to buy a ring that costs $250.00!! Well let me take that back-- if we save up real hard and not eat for a couple of weeks... it can become a possibility. 
But back to the story. I flipped out, tried it on, gave myself a pep talk...
 Seriously when will you actually buy the real thing? Remember you are moving and want to remodel your new apartment PLUS want to go on an awesome vacation this summer? 
So I caved in. I bought it. Shame or no shame, the ring cost $25.00
Helping me look fashionable this birthday weekend without breaking the bank :)

  3. Beautiful ring! I definitely agree with you on the YSL Arty - it can be unrealistic spending $250 on a piece of costume jewelry. The black stone w/ gold combination is beautiful on this ring though! I really want the Lapis one though.. the stone is gorgeous!
