Blue Oasis

I had been eyeing this Ann Taylor necklace for a long time. I love statement necklaces but I don't like to spend a lot on necklaces that I wouldn't wear everyday unless I absolutely loveitcan'tlivewithoutitcan'tgetitoutofmyhead. Although this necklace qualified for most, I couldn't justify paying full price. When it went on sale to $19.99, my psychotic shopper side came out so I called my local store, you know instead of driving over there since it's only 5 minutes away but that would've been to easy. I called my local store to purchase it over the phone and pick it up after work. Well, the SA was about to process my order when she said that someone saw her pull the necklace out for me, liked it and wanted to buy it. Ummmmm....that's my necklace!

Long story short, I called around to other stores and had one shipped to me. It was worth the hassle :-) Normal Maria wouldn't actually call this a "hassle" but psychotic shopper Maria is pretty powerful...and makes me talk in third person...
