Jewerly Party

One of my friends is having a premier designer jewelry party at her house tonight. You know the kind of party where you invite people over and then YOU, as the hostess, gets free or discounted stuff depending on how much your friend's spend. I told her that I would come, but I have absolutely no money to my name. I have gone a little wild this month spending (see Michael Kors purse) and I am at the point of no return. Is it rude to go to the party and not buy anything? I don't want to not show up at all, especially since I told her that I would be there, but I "DO NOT" have any money. What if I bring a friend that I know will spend money, would that be better? Have any of you ever been in this situation and if yes, how did you handle it?

Oh jeez, I've never been but I heard it's very hard not to spend money at those things. My co-worker was selling jewelery the other day and I caved since everyone else was and the necklace was so cute. But if you bring a friend that's sure to spend money I don't think it's rude to not spend yourself - especially since you told your friend in advance. The good thing is they usually have some cheap options - my co-worker was selling bracelets for like $5. Do you have a change jar you can cash in?

It can be really hard not to spend anything, and I have been in this situation a lot. The first couple parties, I bought stuff. But now, if I go at all, it's only because I love the person throwing the party. Usually the host gets something for having XX number of people there. I don't buy anything because the stuff is insanely overpriced. I eat, I mingle, but I conveniently never buy anything.
