It's Me or the House

This post over at Smitten Design really got me thinking.  For the first 10 years of having the freedom to purchase whatever I wanted, I bought clothes.  Clothes, clothes and more clothes, with some shoes, magazines to read about clothes, a few purses and some jewelry thrown in.  It didn't help that I worked in fashion and was surrounded by it daily.  Now that I have moved on from that job and out of a tiny apartment into a larger house, all I think about is buying lamps and rugs and ottomans...  However, it's harder to get a cheap thrill - maybe Forever 21 will start a home line!

Yesterday I just choose this
over this
so my alliance goes back and forth. 

What would you choose?
Fendi Heels $695 (Net-A-Porter) or Jonathan Adler Rug $720 (Matthew Izzo)

Diane Von Furstenberg Dress $325 (Net-A-Porter) or Ballard Designs Coffee Table $349 (Ballard Designs)

Saarinen Round Dining Table $1613 (Design Within Reach) or Miu Miu Handbag $1650 (Net-A-Porter)

Marc by Marc Jacobs Sundress $500 (Net-A-Porter) or Reassembled Mirror $498 (Anthropologie)
