dear anthropologie

Thanks for sending me your fall 2009 issue. The fact that it's shoot location was in Paris, MY PARIS, only accentuates my insanity and lust for that city.

Really? Truly? Did you HAVE to get a shot with the Eiffel Tower? And a gorgeously dressed happy family in front of it? You. Are. So. Cruel.

I appreciate your need to show homes with green walls, which I adore, and cool pillows, which I adore. And I'm really really not going to mention your shoes. My only consolation is that they would look horrible on MY feet.

The fact that the home is aesthetically mid-century only emphasizes the fact that my house is not. And that my decor will never ever be this cool. So thank you for that.

I mean, I appreciate the reminder of what I don't have and the "cool girl" that I only aspire to be. I really do. But seriously, could we be any less considerate of my feelings, dear anthroplogie?
I think not.

I love that store! To expensive for me but i still love it! Is it sad that i look at your house and think how cool you are and that my house isnt like that? :)

Whatever. As if you need that place to be all hip and trendy.

This is funny that I read this after my week. I have been on their site a lot lately and I'm making a trip there today to find some fun hardware and kitchen items (maybe). I fell in love with this store the day I found myself with my new to be husband wandering around the Gateway in Utah. We walked in and I couldn't stop gushing over the fun decor. One day...okay probably not...I am going to own one.
