We're fond of our lil' Outblush Editorial family, and are usually in accord regarding product selection, but sometimes we look at an item that a fellow editor has chosen and do a double take. Which is why we bring you Agree To Disagree, a new feature that'll show you another side to all the happy-sappy product love we've got goin' on and allow you, the readers, to decide whether that item really is crave or cringe-worthy.
So here's what we think happened... one of our dearest editors must've just spent a long weekend with the in-laws and needed an outlet. We have to admit, the Mother-In-Law Ceramic Vase ($124) did make us laugh, partially because MILs can be crazy-making, and partially because this thing is so fugly, how could you not take it as a joke? From the curlers in the hair to the missing tooth, you'd have to be cruel to even imply that this vase was a likeness of your kin, even if they are related by marriage. We're instating a new OB rule: no shopping after time with annoying relatives. Retail therapy's only ok to a certain extent! [Disagree? See another perspective on the Mother-In-Law Vase here.]
