It’s been about a month since my first Buying Battle post! If you’re not familiar with the first post, how this works is I show you a bunch of geeky items vs. girly items, and you have to guess which one I actually bought. Let’s see if you can guess what I got this time! To read the result, highlight the text to see the hidden answers.
Round 1: Glasses
Tiffany Victoria Square Sunglasses ($450)
Sadly, I lost my Juicy Couture sunglasses somewhere. Sunglasses are a necessary accessory when you live in the desert, especially when you drive. These are the perfect replacement! Check out those Austrian crystals on the side…!
GUNNAR JOULE Onyx Crystalline ($99)
If you read my last Buying Battle, you’ll know I was looking at the Cobalt Intercepts. However, I found these beauties! They have crystalline lenses so that I can see my games in true color with a feminine frame style. I spend HOURS on the computer every day, so these are a lifesaver.
Result (highlight text!): I got the GUNNAR JOULE! I’ll take a picture in them sometime. Another way you could’ve figured this out is by looking at my Instagram pictures. I’m wearing dark brown Ray-Ban Classic Wayfarers with prescription lenses (which I don’t actually need). I don’t need a second pair of sunglasses, but it would be nice to have an alternate pair to wear when I feel like it.
Round 2: Purse vs. Keyboard
Madewell “The Transport Tote” ($168.00)
Madewell is a J. Crew brand that unfortunately doesn’t have a store where I live. That’s probably a good thing, because I would spend a lot of money there. However, I really, really like this bag. I know it looks simple, but it’s really versatile. I have ballet flats from the same store in the exact same color leather. I really want this!
Razer BlackWidow Ultimate ($139.99)
If you read my post about how I play and organize my game UI, you’ll know that I wanted/needed a mechanical keyboard. The one I have right now is making my fingers hurt from bashing the buttons so hard.
Result (highlight text!): I purchased neither. I don’t really need either of them that badly, but eventually I really do need to get a mechanical keyboard. And I still really like the bag…….
Round 3: GPU vs. Red Bottoms
Christian Louboutin Simple Pumps in Black ($775)
My Cole Haan Chelsea Black Patent Pumps are wearing out! I need to upgrade them also because I wear black heels to work several days a week. These pumps are the ultimate rare drop in the women’s shoe world.
GeForce GTX 780Ti ($719.99)
I was leveling by myself, and my FPS was hovering only around 20, which is really bad. I currently have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 580. I could definitely use an upgrade for sure!
Result (highlight text!): Are you kidding me? I would never spend that much on a pair of shoes unless I had a lot more money. However, cost per use on both items would be similar, but the video card gives me more bang for my buck. I would only wear the shoes a few days a week, while the GPU would be used pretty much every day. So, I BOUGHT THE VIDEO CARD!!!!!!! Plus, it came with a free copy of Watch Dogs, which I will write about for you when I get around to playing it.
Geek trumps girl this time! Were you surprised?
Thanks for reading! Tomorrow I will hopefully upload another PvP Series post!
