...besides books. Well, okay, one of my other vices, besides books. What's a gal to do on a Saturday afternoon in Quito when she needs to get out and has already had too much coffee?
Why, buy earrings of course.
I went into an interesting-looking touristy artisan store. Lots of gorgeous silver earrings, and leather bags, and pottery--all of which were too expensive to justify.
Then, lo and behold, I found them: the cheap earrings. These cost me $7.50 per pair and I adore them.
The black and blue pairs are my favorites, but...I just can't resist trees. I did manage to resist buying a moon pair, though, which is unusual.
These are only okay, but they also only cost $4.50 per pair, and I know exactly which scarves etc I will wear them with.
Besides, the black ones will look great with my glasses.
In total, I spent a little over $30. Not bad. Maybe I can call this a guilty pleasure instead of a full-blown vice, then?
What are your favorite little vices?
