Dear Dan (my husband),
I’ve know for probably a year now that I reeaaaally want an upholstered bed in our bedroom. There are lots to choose from as evidenced here but the simplicity of the Colette bed has always appealed to me.
This is the Colette bed,
Lovely don’t you think, I know you’re dying for it. The Colette is $1699.
You know I wouldn’t let the price slip if I didn’t have a more attractive alternative, so here goes.
Last week I was visiting one of my regular blog reads, Elements of Style and she posted this,
The Kmart bed is $719.99.
I have to confess, I had such an incredible urge to reach for my credit card at that moment, I looked across the room at my purse hanging on the hook and then I remembered the Punch List for our house and my dreams of having the Colette doppelganger were virtually shattered.
But I haven’t forgotten about the Kmart knockoff and am not likely to forget about it any time soon. I’m hoping you’ll read this and tell me-what the hell you should buy it, we can have the new french doors too!
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
The Estate of Things recently set up shop at the MART Collective in Venice, CA. Come by and see us!
