Upon our return, I started looking at those glossy catalogues, from the infamous Restoration Hardware book to CB2, Crate and Barrel's ultra modern glossy. It looks like expensive stuff for 20somethings' apartments. It is stuff that they will have no use for when have kids.
Looking back on my own 20s, I have had many a discussion with girlfriends of the waste of time and money in our 20s. We had few responsibilities and considerable salaries. (I graduated in the boom times when firms had 6 figure bidding wars over law students. These days I hear that grads hope for unpaid internships, which are really long running interviews. But I digress.) We could, and did, spend more on fashion and furniture--precious little of which fit into our lives once we had children.
