Shabby chic or just, you know...

Replace or cherish?
I never got "shabby chic." Distressed. Beat up. Funky.

Make no mistake--my taste is pretty boho--with a mid-century modern sensibility if not execution (can't afford).

Now, Urban Outfitters, along with its sisters Anthropologie and Free People, is experiencing share loss.

I remember some TV show about the buyer for Anthropologie--he roamed the world dickering over native crafts and French flea market finds in a snooty accent.

I don't like blue jeans with expensive pre-cut rips, either.

Things get shabby legitimately soon enough. It's a short trip from shabby to ratty.

Am I wrong? What do you think?

By the way, many of my readers are in France--do you do shabby? I have only been to Spain.
