Soooo I’ve decided to start blogging about home + living. I moved into a sweet new apartment way back and didn’t decorate at all because I was too busy with life *shrugs* Nothing wrong with the minimalism, but I DO want to fancy up my crib. I thought I’d start by reviewing new apartment stuffs from Urban Outfitters. OH, and I jacked these pics from the UO website. I’ll share my own with you guys later on.
1. Three Tier Rolling Cart ($179) – To be honest, I’m a little bummed about this piece. It looks SUPER cute online, but the quality’s a bit “eh” in person. As you can see, it’s a circular cart with three wire-mesh shelves. UO markets it as a bar cart, but it’s definitely not sturdy enough to function as one IMO. I had a really tough time putting it together because pieces weren’t fitting right. With that said, I’m keeping it because it has a cool vintage vibe, and it looks really good next to my piano.
2. Acid Etched Letter ($12) – A faux-antique etched metal letter that you can place on a shelf or tabletop. Cute for sure but a bit flimsy. Keep in mind that it’s made to look “imperfect”. I only bought one, but I think a lot of people purchase full words. I may actually get my full name – still debating, though.
3. Glass Octagon Display Box ($39) – Love, love, LOVE this case. This geo-shaped box has three glass shelves inside and is PERFECT for holding jewelry and/or other magical trinkets. I totes recommend this piece. Looks way more expensive than it is!
4. Firefly String Lights ($28) – Hm, I have mixed feelings about these lights. They’re super cute and all, but they’re kind of pricy. Hopefully they’ll last for a while! I’ll be bummed if they burn out quickly. The LED bulbs are surprisingly bright, and the copper wire’s bendable so you can string it wherever. It comes with a water-resistant electrical adapter. FYI: these lights are only 15′ long!
Have you guys shopped UO’s apartment collection? If not, where do you guys buy home stuffs?
