We're Luxurious Like Egyptian Cotton

So the other night I noticed a large gaping hole in my sheet – like so big I’m wondering how I didn’t notice it sooner, like say, when it happened. I am kind of sad because I really like these sheets – they’re a pretty plaid flannel material and just really go with our comforter and over all style very nicely. We have other sheets obviously, but these were my favorite so I went to Target to look for a suitable replacement, and just, ugh. I really don’t know how to buy sheets – other than thread count, I haven’t the slightest idea what makes sheets good.

And the selection was just, lets say, terrible. Cause at the end of the day they are just sheets. They had some decent red sheets but then I thought, I have sheets at home, I don’t want just some decent sheets, I want my favorite sheets, or rather my soon to be new favorite sheets. I didn’t come here because I have no sheets at all, I was hoping for something spectacular, and um, cheap.

Sheets are expensive. We have a queen bed right now which means finding a sale is tough since our sheets will be more expensive than all you twin bed nutjobs. Seriously, I wish we had a king bed even though that would make the sheets even more expensive. And how can they be this much money – they are seriously just sheets people. Shouldn’t I be able to have gorgeous egyptian cotton sheets for like $10? Pretty please?

Anyway, if money were no issue, here are some sheets I’d lust after and then own:

JC Penny Home Collection Splash Set : These are actually on sale right now and at least look fun! More than I can say for all the drab looking sheets at Target right now…

Colburn Queen Sheet Set : Don’t these just look absolutely divine? They make me want to go to bed right now…

1891 by Sferra “Signature Sateen” : Something about these sheets just couldn’t be drab if they tried…

I don’t know, maybe I’m expecting too much out of this sheet thing, but we bought plain colored blankets (dark cholate brown) so the sheets are kind of important for making the room pop subtley, if that makes any sense…

We’ll see what a weekend of shopping digs up…

    You should splurge! Even though sheets can be expensive…it’s worth it! If you buy a good set of sheets, you’ll have them for so long and there’s nothing better than slipping into a bed made of butter! haha! Sheets are my only luxury item! I don’t care about the car, handbags, shoes, etc. But my sheets are so important. Try visiting http://www.elegantlinenspc.com, they have some reasonable sheets. Just call them if you have any questions! I started out the same way…now I can’t go back to any other sheets! Thats my favorite store!
