tell me what to buy

note: this post is NOT sponsored by lulu & georgia.

a few months ago, i won an instagram contest held by one of my favorite online retailers: lulu & georgia. actually, it was so many months ago that i don't even remember what picture i won for or why. eeps.

but! the most important and exciting part of winning was the prize: $100 credit at lulu & georgia to spend as i wish! happy dance!

i was saving the credit because we initially planned to spend it towards dining chairs or a dining room rug. once those were purchased elsewhere (see here and here), i still had the lulu & georgia credit hanging around.

sooo, i contemplated a couple of throw pillows for the ainslie sofa -- to integrate the purply-maroon color of the new dining room rug into the front room.

some of the pillows i'm considering:
1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5  |  6

any standouts?

the problem is not only deciding which purple pillow looks best with the rug -- it's that i'm still not even sold on having purple pillows in the first place. would it be too much?? i'm not sure it's the direction i should be going in. what do you think?

if i don't buy pillows, these are some other items from lulu & georgia that caught my eye. note it's nothing we actually need...
1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5  |  6  |  7  |  8

...then i start thinking: well, we don't need pillows either.

but, i have $100 credit!
consumerism fail.

so...i'm kind of stuck now. i don't want to waste the credit and i'm frozen by my indecision. tell me what to buy.

p.s. i'd love to connect with you on instagram! you can find me @meandering_mari. :)

  1. Catching up on my blog reading so not sure if you've already made your purchases but I give a BIG thumbs up to the purple pillows. I know I get stricken with fear (lol....dramatic much?) when it comes to committing to accent colors but just think pillows are easy to switch out if you change your mind later down the road. If not the purple then my vote is for the mirror! I've been eying one like that forever.

    1. i STILL haven't made a decision. i have a feeling it will be 2020 before i finally spend this credit. :/
