What would you buy with it, Bees?
My DH came upstairs last night with a gift Visa card he received through a merchant offer. He gave it to me and said, “Do you think you could use this to buy jewelry?” Could I!?! What a silly question!
Realistically, I should probably spend the money elsewhere. But it’s such fun to dream and think about what to buy. I’ve been surfing around all morning feeling a bit like a kid in a candy store. So I thought it might be fun to see what you ladies would buy if a sudden, small windfall came your way.
Budget is $300 or less. No spending it on anything “necessary”, like bills or rent. You can only spend it on some frivolous, fun jewelry item. Ready … set … GO!

I would buy a rolling ring for my RH. Non-jewelry…I’d get a new pair of boots in cognac.

MsGinkgo: Kate Spade is what came to mind for me to! But I also need a great pair of boots…. 300 is so hard, its not like a $1000 where you can go crazy, but its substantial… Sigh. I pick Boots!

I’d buy a gold Michael Kors watch. I just got a new Michael Kors handbag with gold hardware on it, so now I feel like I need to wear gold haha! I haven’t worn gold since high school! I asked my husband for the watch for my stupid birthday that’s coming up…I want this one because it’s simple & elegant (if that’s even a word to describe a watch that isn’t a Movado with diamonds on it)…and it’s absolutely nothing like my silver watch! But it’s only $195, so I’d buy this bangle (by Michael Kors) to match…which is $95…so I’m coming in under budget!
