Buy This, Not That

Forever 21 Rainbow Jewel Dome Ring $6.80
Kate Spade Tapered Ring $79.99 (sale)

I literally had this Kate Spade ring in my online shopping basket at Piperlime (it is on sale) when I found this rainbow gem ring at Forever 21 for $6.80! This was a no-brainer for me and I'm going to head right over to Forever 21 and try to find the inexpensive ring in person and skip on the Kate Spade this time. Which ring would you go for, given the vast difference in price?

Of course the cheapest one...brand is brands, but I think noone actually will rezognize is it Kate Spade or Forever 21! Both pieces are great! :))

Best wishes,
Ievu

IF i was rich, i'd go for the kate spade.. BUT since i'm poor.. i'd totally go for the f21 one! its very cute and very similar to the kate spade one!

Krystal said...

oh that is tough!! i love the colors of the kate spade one...but my logic would go for the forever 21 one :) good choice!

Lovely B. said...

Definitely the cheaper one. Both are cute but i'd rather save my money and later splurge on a gorgeous Kate Spade purse or great pair of shoes!

Def the F21! Save all that money for some hot clothes =) I mean that practically a dress! (or several if you are still F21 shopping while picking up the ring).
Thanks for your comment! I always kind of forget that other parts of the country don't get tornados. I think I'll have to do a post demonstrating what to do incase of one =)

As much as I love me some Kate Spade I also love to save money. I would buy the Forever 21 ring at this price point and take the left over money and go buy some shoes! great find!

F21 is the total winner here!! What a total jackpot. I even like the colors better.

And Valerie - erm. YOU ARE SO BRAVE TO GO TO THAT CYNTHIA VINCENT THING. Can you imagine everyone whipping their clothes off? I'm pretty free-spirited, but I was actually shocked. And who has a sale without a fitting room or a mirror?? Hel-looo? Also - I've had those Matt Bernson's for 3 years and have worn them like crazy. I highly recommend - they hold their value and are extremely comfortable. I've worn them at least 180x and I think that's what I paid - $1/time!! :):)

The Forever 21 :)
I too enjoy the bright colors!
Hope you had a great day Valerie :)

Michelle Reyna said...

OOhhh yeah! It also reminds me of the Yurman confetti ring. Forever 21 wins!

Torrie said...

I get such a "high" off of deals like this. Yes, sometimes you just have to pay more for the quality of a certain item. But this?? No brainer, like you said:).

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Wow, beautiful rings. I actually like the Forever21 ring better!
