Would you buy this?

Clearly, I'm terrible at leaving when I say I will ;)

I've been drooling over some dishes for a few weeks. They're unique, but still in a neutral colour but with a neat design. They're currently on sale, and I have a $90 gift card to the store.

Now, I don't need dishes right now. At all. But I love them. So, would you buy them if you were in my shoes?

    You have a picture?

    P.S. I'm glad you're not good at leaving... :)

    I love dishes and glassware. I can almost never resist...so i'm probably not the best influence, because I will say GO FOR IT!

    I realize they aren't for everyone... but I adore them :)
    I suppose I just feel silly buying dishes when my family already has some. But I'm going to need them at some point, and they can still be used now.
    BF has been telling me for weeks to just buy them already since it's clear I want to. I'm trying to think of any downsides first.

    Oh, yes. I like them very much. Buy!

    Are they dishwasher/mcirowave safe?

    They are beautiful!  I would totally buy them.  I still live at home but I own pretty dishes.  Sometimes I use them.  But I can't wait to move out and use them!

    Yes, pic please!

    Even without seeing the pic, though, with $90 toward them, if I loved them, I'd probably go for it.

    Uhm, you just went through (are going through) a crappy, sad time. Buy something pretty right now. RIGHT NOW. The less practical the better.

    Those are super pretty. If you feel like it won't break you, do it! If you do feel like the expense is too much, I say spend the $90 credit you have on something else that's really pretty and impractical. :)

    I feel like too much of an AW if I post an update, so yes, current it is.

    I can afford the dishes Plus, I want to get some father's day stuff as well.. might as well roll it into one?

    But inquiring minds want details on the relationship, since many around here want to support your decisions!

    Apparently, we're terrible at breaking up because we spent the past few days talking about what happened. I realized then that he had no idea what was going on because I hadn't bothered to say anything to him. Once we both got all of that out in the air, we decided it was worth another shot. Basically, it was poor communication.

    Yay! I'm so glad to hear you had a positive talk, and that things are better. Similar thing happened to BF and I 2 years ago. Except we only stayed broken up for 20 minutes (we failed at breaking up even more than you and your BF did). Ultimately, it was the best thing that could have happened for us.

    Also, BUY THE DISHES! Seriously. It sounds like a great deal, and I think they're pretty.

    yes on the dishes! It is totally ok that you don't need them yet, as BF and I have done plenty of ridiculous shopping because we know they will be used later. lol. maybe I am just saying this to make myself feel better...

    anyway, they are beautiful and you obviously want them. so buy them!! : )

    yay for you and BF working things out, hope they continue to go well.

    For those of you that wanted to know where they're from it's from the Ever Grateful Collection by Dayspring.

    It's a Christian store, but not all of the pieces in the collection have explicitly religious messages on them. They have cute placemats that say "love and laughter gather here" for example.
