Well, that was disappointing


West Elm let down.

November 2011 I blogged about West Elm and how I was elated that a store was opening in Seattle.
 I had obsessed over their lush home goods for months online and finally there was a brick and mortar store opening here! 
I couldn't wait to go.
Flash forward to September 2013.
It has been almost TWO years and I finally went.
That's depressing.

(I guess that's what happens when you get pregnant, stop working and have to ...uggghhh..."budget"  **shudders**)

It literally took me that long to go check it out.
How incredibly lame?!
Not as incredibly lame as I found the store!
Yep, that's right. 
All that build up and I didn't buy a thing.
I didn't even see any ridiculously expensive items that I wanted to add to my Christmas list.
Well, aside from a vintage reproduction fridge that comes in yummy pastels for a meer $1999.00 and is only 3/4 the size of a real fridge.



I found two items in the whole place that I considered buying.

These hefty gold handled retro scissors.
They just feel good in your hands.

($24.00)


And this metal studded velvet throw pillow.
($55.00)


I left with this void deep in my core. 
I call it "I need more shopping"
Steve says it's "debt removal"

 I arrived home and Steve asked me what I bought.
I replied with " Please don't be mad. " 
Followed by "I need you to help me unload it out of the car." 
After being satisfied with my marital duties of torturing my husband, I informed him that I actually didn't spend a penny. Aside from my $1.50 parking spot. 
He still didn't believe me.
