Jewelry Death

For some reason all my new jewelry decided to commit suicide today. First, my earring jumped out at home, so I put it back in. Then a few hours later I noticed it was missing again. I traced it back to the grocery store parking lot, where it was forlorn and potentially smushed from being run over by cars. Then when I bent down to pick up the earring, I noticed that my new ring was missing the ornament and all I had was a band on my finger. That never turned up. It was only $6, but I'm going to try to get them to exchange it for another one even though I can't really prove what ring it was.

What I Wore While All My Jewelry Committed Suicide:



  • black/white plaid pencil skirt (Newport News)
  • black short sleeve blouse (Target)
  • red patent leather skinny belt (Target)
  • black satin ballet flats (via Kohl's)
  • silver tone earrings (via Payless)
  • silver woven bracelet (via Payless)
  • missing black enamel flower ring (Dots)

What I Ate On My Last Night of No Stove:


  • general Tso's chicken (I ate about 2/3)
  • fried rice (I ate about 3/4)
  • 1 veggie egg roll
  • 1/2 c wonton soup w/ crunchies!!!

I'm scared to do the math. Will you do it for me?

Isn't it always the way? I hate days like that. Al least you still looked good. I love that top/belt/skirt combo.

instead of a new one from Dots - check out Forever 21 and their flower rings - super cute. Only drawback is ring size is limited to 6 and 7.

Tina, I love how you can take something frustrating and turn it into something funny! You always look on the brighter side of life :)

With earrings like that, I usually use little plastic stoppers that go on the back and keep them from falling off. I think you can get them at jewelry stores.

You go girl! You tell that jewelry who's boss! :)

you can get them at Wal-Mart, or heck, my house. I sell earrings and keep them on hand for that.

since nobody's said it yet, i will: your bracelet is incredibly awesome. i have a soft spot for interesting wrist jewelry, and this one is classy and elegant and funky all at the same time. understated. love it.

Erin - it was mildly irksome, but mostly amusing.

TexNYQueen - thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, my pudgy fingers needs 9-10s.

Sher - Thanks. I try. :)

Diana & Erin - they actually came with some of those backs. I just hate those things. I just think you shouldn't have to use them with french hooks.

Lydia - lol

Coco - thanks! It's new, so you can go get one too, if you want.
