My LOVE/HATE Relationship with Urban Outfitters

January 30, 2014

Am I the only person who has a love/hate relationship with Urban Outfitters? On paper it seems like the perfect store but in reality, it represents everything I loathe! Honestly, I’d have to lean more towards the ‘hate side’ but I have admit there are some cool things at Urban! Urban Outfitters is a cool store, don’t get me wrong. I’m no stranger to its glorious ways and funky displays. I’ve shopped at Urban Outfitters on numerous occasions and I’ve always been impressed with my purchases. Some days I truly love Urban Outfitters and other days (more often than not) I ask myself ‘why did I come here again?’

LOVE: I love that their vinyl records comes with MP3 downloads of the albums! Kudos Urban!
HATE: The albums cost an arm and a leg! Why am I paying 30+ for records?!?
LOVE: Everything in the ‘book’ section! I could spends hours reading all those kooky and funny books!

HATE: You can find almost everything for a cheaper price somewhere else! Amazon, Modcloth, the author’s websites…
LOVE: Urban Outfitters really makes it easier to be more ‘hipster.’ I love all the vinyl records, Polaroid cameras, artsy prints and home decor.

HATE: Urban Outfitters really makes it easier to be more ‘hipster.’ I don’t think I need to explain this one…
It’s crazy, because I want almost everything in Urban Outfitter’s and yet I also despise everything they sell. It’s weird.
