Perhaps i'm nuts

No, I have not yet had a chance to photograph what was in the pink box in the post below. Sorry. I swear I'll get to it eventually. Perhaps I'll get some photos of me wearing the new clothes I ordered too. But I am still arguing with the company on the freaking ridiculous COD charges. More on that later.

Yesterday afternoon I left work and had about 20 minutes to kill before meeting my husband at his building so I could catch a ride home with him. Holt Renfrew is on the way. EEEKKK!!! I have a love/hate relationship with that store. They carry all sorts of awesome high end brands that I generally cannot afford. I have bought a few things there in the past year or so (Frye boots, several pairs of Citizens for Humanity and Seven jeans, some sale tops, Ash shoes). Since I didn't have time to try on anything I quickly perused the jeans, shoes and then checked out the jewelry, which I usually walk right past. I now know why I walk right past. I CAN'T AFFORD IT!! The sales person started showing me all sorts of stuff from the locked cases and I acted all cool about it, but then she showed me the funkiest bracelet that I would have bought on the spot but then she told me it was $225 (or thereabouts). It's freaking nylon and silver with skulls on it for crissakes (from Links of London). Kind of nuts but I may ask for it from my loving husband for my upcoming birthday. 'Cause every chick turning 36 should have a skull bracelet!

I could not find a better photo online. It's much nicer in person.

Yup you're nuts but that is a really funky bracelet.

Man, we have totally different reactions to Holts. You want to buy stuff, I want to push displays over and pour make up and perfume all over the cosmetics sales people.

Have you checked etsy? You might find something just as fun and not from Holts! Here's a necklace with skulls: http://www.etsy.com/listing/74045753/tripple-crystal-quartz-skull-necklace?ref=tre-570574785-15

I loved this too. Try searching under Links of London in ebay.co.uk.--seems to be a source of a lot of unwanted gifts.
