I think that Gilmore Girls was more accurate than most other tv shows about how the characters would’ve lived on a realistic income. However, Lorelai mentions Sephora in several episodes. There is very little that I could afford in Emily’s world, but most things in Lorelai & Rory’s lives are easily accessible unless it was a gift from Logan or the grandparents. I just don’t see Lorelai shopping at Sephora. It is too expensive and not enough fun. Plus, last time I checked they didn’t carry any Copper Boom. Do you think the show was realistic about a budget?
