I bought a huge blue ring...

From N.

I've been attempting to curtail shopping lately, with weddings, bachelorette parties and a trip to Mexico on the docket all within a month or so. I have a list of all the things I "need," i.e. an iphone. But I also don't have a lot of restraint. Exhibit A: the Rachel Leigh gumball ring.

I blame lookrichbitch. She made me realize I wasn't subscribed to the weekly DailyCandy deals. I think it was better when I wasn't subscribed to the weekly DailyCandy deals. I had been musing about buying more dramatic statement rings but I wasn't going to do anything about it until I saw this ring online, at 30 percent off. The gumball came in fun colors like strawberry, grape, cookie (actually a bland brown) and pacific. The discount was not such a fabulous deal, but I was waiting around for the King County elections results (Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels came in a shocking third in the primary) and had a lot of unfocused energy, so I zeroed it in on my checking account.

I had buyer's remorse waiting for it to show up, but now that it's here, I'm quite happy with it. It's big and bold and fun, and will perk up plain dresses and shirts that need a pop of color.


  1. Love your ring and her other ones! I might have to buy one now too....

  2. They're cute and fun, although definitely chunky. It's no Jamie Joseph, which is what I truly covet, but the gumball ring is a good substitute.
