A Dress I Can’t Possess

And I don’t want to! I don’t have the kind of life where I would ever have a need for such a dress, but still. It’s stunning.

Oh god, that reminds me! The winner of Project Runway? SPOILER ALERT: A couple of Gretchen’s looks were lovely, and I loved the jewelry, seriously loved the jewelry, but come on. Really? I loved Andy’s collection more than they did, but agreed he should have thrown in a couple of wow pieces, but that doesn’t take away from all the beautiful pieces he did send down the runway. But Mondo should have won.

Anyway, I got a rebate for my new phone in the form of a Visa card with the $30 rebate on it. So, I’m going to buy myself a $30 present. Any ideas? It’s weird how little $30 will buy. I can’t even get a pedicure with that. But here’s what I’m thinking so far:

– Two movies with candy.
– $30 worth of ready-made meals from Fresh Direct.
– A bunch of bouquets of flowers from a Korean deli.

What would you do with $30?

  1. Good question!

    Maybe I’d go to the Union Square Farmer’s Market and get some exotic produce/jam/flowers or yarn. I’ve been following Apartment Therapy’s 20/20 Home Cure and one of the days he suggests buying flowers. Maybe I’d get something more long-lasting like tiny pumpkins or gourds.

    Or, I’d treat myself to a museum I’ve been wanting to go to.
    Maybe get some beauty item I’ve been wanting, but didn’t buy because I didn’t want to spend the $$ on it.

    Well those are the first things that popped into my head.
    Did you decide yet what you’re going to do with the money?

  2. For me, as always, a book. Probably something to help me take better photos since that’s my focus now. Or maybe more rose bushes from Rogue Valley River in Oregon.

    Since my default clothing mode is black turtleneck/top, jeans and Birkenstocks, Macy’s hates me.

  3. Hahaha.

    I’d like to take better pictures, too. Every once in a while I spend a few hours learning things about my camera, and then I forget what I’ve learned (the story of my life).
