Split personality

Do you ever feel yourself pulled between two parts of your own personality?

I do, all the time. My inner conflict of the day was set off by visiting Anthropologie.

It set off the deep seated conflict between my warring aesthetic preferences.

Modern:

beautiful-modern-design

vs.

Boho:

anthropologie

Our place has little pieces of both — far too much clutter to be either — but oh how I love the boho. And yet I’m really not sure I could pull it off in mass quantities without it just looking wrong.

I’d dress boho if I thought in any way I could do so, (you know, minus the big fur hat)

but I know I can’t, so it’s black on black for me, and that’s ok most of the time. It’s just when I visit meccas of boho such as Anthropologie that I want to start a revolution in my bed and change everything up.

So if you were me, what would you do? Do you covet a style you feel you can’t pull off? Discuss.

    boho is nice and all, but I think it has too much potential to go straight to clutter

  2. Yeah, simplicity. I feel called to it, to pare down and live simply, but I love “stuff” too much, so I just buy, buy, buy and periodically throw a lot of crap away. Wow, I just realized I’m a style bulimic. Well, that’s just great…
