cross ring





ring: asos
nails: barry m 297

Excuse the edited ~artsy~ colours, my flash was making me look like a Oompa Lumpa so colours just had to be hipster-fied! Words cannot describe how excited I was when I came across this AMAZING two fingered cross ring on ASOS. I wanted the Forever 21 version ever since it came out months and months ago but I always held back from buying it because it was going for silly silly prices! All the US bloggers had it, and it was all over Tumblr! People were going mad for this ring! I would google at least once a week in the hope I'd be able to find a cheap on! For £8 (with free P+P) you cant go wrong! Ive doused it in clear nail polish in the hope it wont go green too quickly! For anyone interested in getting one, I got mine in small and it fits all my fingers apart from the thumb (obvz!) I'm normally a small in most rings, Although I did buy a medium and a large too just to check I'd get the right size!

In other Forever 21 news, I hear the Birmingham store is opening on the 12th November apparently, Im so excited! I love Forever 21, and I cant wait to get my hands on some of their goodies! Especially their rings and jewellery! I wonder how the prices are going to be over here compared to the USA. Im hoping its going to be in the New Look/H&M price bracket! I'll have to make sure I make a special trip just to go there once its open! Im so glad the stores opening in Birmingham rather than somewhere super hard for me to get too!

  6. I really like this ring but I've been holding back from buying it. I'm not religious so I'd kinda feel a bit wrong wearing it. I mean, I know a lot of people that wear it probably aren't religious either and I'm just being a total weirdo, but I reeeally like it.

  12. You got the ring! Did you get the other colour too :) hehe I love it, I was addicted to trying to find it on eBay ... The U.S one was by Forever 21, they were stupidly over priced so I will be getting the silver one From Asos too for £8 !!!! How could you not. Loving the glitter nails, I painted mine glitter purple :) lovely pics Lilly TC xxx

  26. actual WOAH i never thought of putting nail polish on costume jewellery to make it last longer :O

    im def going to buy more rings now :)

    p.s. i like the "artsy" colours!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I was really tempted by either this ring or the UO one when I saw them but wondered whether I'd feel a bit restricted in it, like I'd lost a finger?! I've tried on double rings before and found them a bit annoying. Do you find this one comfy (or is it easy to get used to?) as I'm going to order asap if you do!

  28. You got me ridiculously excited when you tweeted about that ring, I had been eyeing up the one on urban outfitters for AGES but it was £17 with postage which i thought was a little steep seeing as the F21 was like $3. Im waiting for mine to come, I ordered medium, I hope it fits!! Im off to the states next month, F21 here I come! x

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ooh, no - not a fan of the ring at all. I don't like cross jewellery at all as a general rule. However, you look gorgeous and the nail polish is ace!

  53. Das ist mein erstes Gewinnspiel, du kannst dir ein Guess Produkt aussuchen, egal ob Jacke, Schuhe oder Tasche. Mit etwas Glück könnte es klappen,

  57. you guys have the best of everything over there now that you're getting a F21. I'd say it's typically a price bracket lower than H&M.

    The only thing terrible about their stores are that everything's always scattered about & you really have to hunt for things.

    ReplyDelete
  58. i actually cannot wait till it opens, i guess wish an online store was part of the deal x

    ReplyDelete
  59. I live in the US and I absolutely love Forever 21, the prices are considerably lower than H&M actually. I am dying to have an actual TopShop store open near where I live since I live in California. I read your blog all the time and love your style, but I am so jealous because you get all of your clothes and accessories from Top Shop or Primark and we don't have those :(

    ReplyDelete
  60. Love this ring! Asos are selling some amazing jewellery at the moment. And with 20% student discount at the moment, it couldn't get any better!

    ReplyDelete
  61. :o that ring is adorbs! i love two-finger rings! my ultimate ring is the vivienne westwood triple finger knuckle duster ring! xx
