He came back with it, and if I had loved it on the site, on my finger it was FUCKING GORGEOUS. ...And $240.
Ever since I got my salaried job a little less than a year ago, I've had some goals: build out my loft apartment, buy a computer, save money to visit the boyfs, and buy nicer clothes/accessories. I've been able to achieve the first three, but now I think it's time to focus on #4. Well, maybe not right away (still paying off that macbook pro purchase!!) but I figure I could get this ring as a birthday present to myself or something. Also on that list is the PERFECT pair of boots. I haven't found them yet, though. Plus...a great winter coat, perfect jeans, shoes shoes shoes, etc etc etc! I've been scrounging the past couple years; getting by on H&M, Target and clearance racks for the most part. I feel dowdy.
I'll start shopping soon; when I cease feeling guilty about it. I hated going shopping for a long time because I had to exercise A LOT of restraint. Now I can't wait wait wait...it's in reach!
