Yesterday, I accompanied my sister on a last-minute mall run before she left for Singapore. We were browsing around BAYO, a local boutique, and I was telling my sister that I kept seeing tops that I liked, but that I won’t shop for anything aside from exercise clothes since I need to save up for Scotland. Yes, I am serious about going!
Minutes after saying that, I came across a display of jewelry. Curious cat that I am, I came closer…and found this necklace.
I could’ve stopped with just admiring it by touch, but no, I HAD to try it on. And once I did, there went my conviction. I just fell in love with its design and craftsmanship (BTW, I wore it the wrong side up in this photo, LOL). Do you know what I mean when I say that it’s so me? Well, it is.
My sister knew that I was a goner then and urged me to buy it. That was all the push I needed to whip out my much-abused credit card and claim that last piece for myself.
I have such poor self control. This is why I should NEVER try things on when I know I should be saving. Lesson learned…but it wasn’t such a bad lesson, anyway. At least I haven’t been buying jewelry for myself lately (yup, still trying to justify it haha!).
