Have you ever seen something that you can't get out of your head?
It plagues the mind sorta like one of those annoying headaches you can ignore,
but it never really goes away.
At the Chictopia conference on Saturday, there was a moment where The Glamourai was sitting in the row in front of me. When I wasn't ogling her precision cut 'do, I couldn't take my eyes off her ring. It appeared to be a rough cut amethyst, extremely large, and something I would love to own for myself. I imagine someone of her caliber (I think she's got amazing style, so chic and put together, way beyond my comprehension, so I put her up on a pedastal-in the realm of fashion)would have the real deal-as in an item I can only covet but never own, oh bills and real life how you mess up grand plans I have for my wallet.
(Now just about two weeks ago I made an internal, private decision that I needed to wear rings more often, and the majority of those I own are dainty vintage costume pieces bought at an antique store while I was still in high school-so I've been keeping my eyes peeled for rather large, cocktail like, rings...rings...and more rings. So you can imagine what this lady's ring did to my brain; besides the bewitching factor it had on me, it was an "a-ha" moment where I knew that her ring was right on target for something I should have for myself)
Ok, so life goes on...I exist day to day without her amazing ring. I keep thinking about it, and I keep remembering that I want some rings, but no big deal.
After work on Tuesday I had all intentions to stop by Urban Outfitters, instead I was sidetracked and ended up spending 2 hours in stupid Forever 21.
Just as I was about to purchase my frivolous finds, I figured why not scan thru the accessories section really quick. Yeah, why not?
And BAM! There is was!
A complete, cheap, knock-off version of the very ring I had been thinking of since Saturday!
Ok, so I'll be the first to admit this is such a horrible excuse for her ring, but at $10.50, am I about to pass up the very look I'd only coveted days before?
So yeah...this will work for me. Especially considering I am not one to own nice things because I usually break them, discard them, lose them, or grow tired within weeks.
So this little cheapie version will suit my lifestyle very well.
I just can't believe out of nowhere this thing in the back of my head that I could not shake was sitting right there in a little crystal bowl at Forever 21.
My lucky day!
On another note, my bangs were in my eyes!
I almost can't see, and they're sooooo long that I don't really keep them in their position for long. Usually after about 2 seconds I flip my head so the bangs naturally swish to the left. And/or they take it upon themselves to split in sections all of their own choosing, whatever the case they never lay like this on my forehead when at this length-I just can't work with them tickling my lashes.
So out with my crappy scissors, and snip-snip!
I suppose my newly trimmed bangs will make their appearance this weekend-being as how that will be the next time I have a post.
(and oh man--what a busy weekend I have ahead of me. A baby shower, a birthday party, and an all day photoshoot for my friend's clothing line. So much for thinking I'll get to catch up on my much needed sleep. And to top it all off, none of the subways I can/need to take are running this weekend-supposedly a shuttle bus is what NYC thinks is a suitable replacement. Great!)
