You know how your parents always told you that persistence pays off? It’s true. Do you know what else is true? Being a stubborn bitch pays off when dealing with retailers.
West Elm is mailing me a so-called ‘rug return kit’ which I should receive in 5 to 7 glorious business days. At which point, I respond to their email and they’ll schedule a pick up of this horrendous chevron rug. Then, drumroll please, I have a store credit coming my way.
My dearest, West Elm, you have redeemed yourself. I may have had to make several employees have “one of those days” but I don’t feel bad because the customer is always right. This rule only applies when I am the customer. Otherwise, the customer is a crazy piece of wacko.
So, the million dollar question is “what rug are you going to get?” After much discussion and painstaking research (does this rug give bad rug burns: yes or no?) I have decided on the rug below. Also, I wouldn’t mind if the rest of the room looked like this as well.
I’m excited to not have an animal around the house that doesn’t keep me company.
Me gusta. I’d also like it if my apartment could look that clean, neat and organized at all times. With candles and flowers. Always. Sigh. Go West Elm! I knew their customer service would be stellar.
that pic is decorated so chic!

I’m loving those candles1
wow. i need to do this about my duvet cover. And be like, ‘yeah, it came with those red wine stains as well.’
guuuurl, I feel yo’ pain! I bought a “great” west elm rug a few years ago that shed so much I considered buying a dog because why the hell not, there was “hair” everywhere already!! To this day, I still find wisps of the damn thing clung to stuff. DAMN YOU WEST ELM AND YOUR PRETTY MERCHANDISING. Fingers crossed the next one is a winner.
