Off the beaten path…wall decals

Chandelier: from $38 by Raging Vinyl What makes a home an Anthropologie home? My friends and I joke it’s an entryway with lots of rustic-looking mirrors of different sizes.

Email: Frugal never looked so fine

Hey, did you know Anthropologie has like 40 items for under $100? Their latest email says so! Anthro, I love you, so don’t take it too harshly when I say that I rolled my eyes when I saw this.

Well, hello, I said to myself checking the mail yesterday. You see there was a little brown envelope from Anthropologie for me. It was a bit larger than a credit card and had my address handwritten on the front. Once in my apartment I opened it up to find a gauzy envelope with my one of my favorite phrases written…
