Variopinte Plates

A few months ago, one of our kitchen cabinets (that held all our plates), came crashing down to the ground in the middle of the night. Luckily, no one was hurt—but we lost 95% of our dishes that day. Ever since, we've been eating off the hodge-podge of mostly plastic plates that survived the crash. I've been meaning to invest in a new set of dishes and while in Paris, I came across this Italian brand called Variopinte who makes enamelled metal plates with these colorful rimmed edges. They're classic, yet upbeat, and a fun basic to pair with more decorative plates you might already have. Getting a whole new set of plates is a big commitment, yet it's one of those purchases you make that hopefully (barring faulty cabinet construction), lasts a really long time...

P.S. Some other things worth splurging on in your 30's...
