Did I do that?

Have you ever bought something and had a hard time believing that you really bought it? It happened to me this weekend, when I came home with an iconic item that I have lusted after since I saw it for the first time at Moma.

On Saturday, I accompanied my boyfriend to a work-related function at Legend's Brewery in Richmond. I'm not a beer connoisseur, so I had two light, girly beers during the three hours we were there. Unfortunately, the main food available was bratwurst, of which I'm not a fan, and I didn't eat much of anything. On the way home, we stopped at La Difference, a modern furniture store. I was just going to look at that iconic item and be on my way.

I forgot how great of a shopping wingman my boyfriend is. He's not quite an enabler, but he always has something nice to say about something I'm considering whether it's a dress or an expensive bottle of olive oil (two recent examples of things I didn't buy despite his praise of them).

Within ten minutes, I was signing a receipt and a warehouse guy was putting a beautiful, magnificent, amazing Louis Ghost Chair by Kartell in my boyfriend's hands.

Did I really buy it? I have walked into the living room a few times this weekend just to look at it. I can't believe it. I have a ghost chair.



P.S. La Diff has bourgie lamps on clearance right now! Tempting!

  2. Isn't a shopping buzz great? I have two Ghost chairs I got 3 years ago and I still feel happy everyday when I see their shinny little faces.

  3. I should have posted the comment a friend made when I posted a Twitter picture of the chair in the store. He wrote that it looked like something from Wonder Woman's living room. Hahaha!

  4. Oh, and the boyfriend was also calling my attention to all kinds of futuristic lounge chairs in La Diff. As if I'd let a chair with a built in calf massage feature or built in speakers in my living room!
