Hi, a quick bio first:
I'm 23, work in the white collar corporate world, and have difficulty maintaining my self expression while still presenting myself as professional and respectable (and believe me, in this environment there are certain rules you need to abide by or you won't last long). I do enjoy my job very much, but sometimes I feel suffocated. I used to dye my hair crazy colors and do all sorts of fun stuff with my (3 feet of) hair - mostly braiding into tiny braids, or using 25 tiny rubberbands to make fancy designs on my head. ANYWAY, one thing I used to do that I've gotten back into is stretching my ears. It's subtle at work, but I can go nuts on the weekends at home. Plugs, spirals, etc are my version of the mainstream shoe obsession. That, and bras, but that's another story.
Anyway, this brings me to my question. I need advice! I'm shopping on Ebay (instead of doing work, I know, I know!!!) and I need some input on what to get and what I'm already planning on getting. So, here it goes:
Black Titanium - $2.49
Surgical Steel - $2.99
I don't really want to get both - I'm trying to conserve money right now. So which do you like better?
Also, I'm most likely going to get both of the following anyway, but I'm curious for the advice of fellow alternachicks (or in my case, semi-alternachicks).
Surgical Steel, threaded - $3.49
Acrylic - $1.99
By the way, I wear 4g, so the ones I get will be MUCH smaller than these. These are just stock photos.
