I've had my fair share of destiny shopping over the past few months this summer, but I must admit, it does come in spurts. I notice whenever I TRY to shop for a certain occasion, that's when I never come across anything worthwhile.
For my 18th birthday last September, my aunt gave me a beautiful gold necklace in the shape of a circle that I absolutely fell in love with. I read "Anastasia's Accessories" in gold lettering across the velvet green pouch that housed the gorgeous necklace. The next time I was in Hoboken, I had to hunt down this boutique. Two months later when I finally went, I walked in and fell in love with a ring by a fabulous designer called Meira T. There were only a few Meira T pieces in the store, but each of them was so feminine, elegant and stunning that I instantly fell in love with the designer. I also loved how my ring was one of a kind. I had my eye on it for 2 months, and finally went and bought it for myself last week with graduation money from my aunt.
(The ring sat there for 2 months...now that's what I call destiny).
The moral to my story? Next time your walking past a small boutique thinking that you'll never find anything, go inside instead. I guarantee you'll walk out questioning whether you still want to head to the mall and buy the same shirt, ring, or whatever it is that thousands of other people have a carbon copy of. Think outside your department store box. You won't be sorry you did.
