Having too much fun

I'm in love with playing look for less. There are two mirrors that I've been loving. One is a black chunky one from West Elm, and the other is a Ballard Design Capriz mirror. Target had total look alikes for both of these styles.

I still like the West Elm mirror better, but I don't think I can justify spending almost $400 on a mirror. I think I actually like the Capiz Target mirror more than the Ballard Design one. They were out of stock so the price wasn't available so I'm going to keep checking on it. I can't imagine it's anywhere close to the Ballard Design price.

On a super fun note...I got my first set of new house item packages. It was my World Market stuff and I have to say it was all just as beautiful in person. I love the star patio lights even more than when I bought them. There's nothing that can make your day like a package on your door step.

Careful with cheap mirrors. I've been burned many times! It's not about the frame - it's about the glass of the mirror. Usu. if a mirror is really inexpensive, the reflection is bad (warped or otherwise not true).
I only know this because, like I said, I've gotten burned!
