Frugal? That Depends

This afternoon I received an email from the women’s clothier Anthropologie with the subject line: "Frugal never looked so fine." I was intrigued so I opened the message to find the headline: "Big on Impact, Small on Price." Still intrigued, I clicked and was led to a special section on the Anthropologie site dedicated to clothing, jewelry, handbags and more that the seller deems, "Pocket Pleasers."I had hoped Anthropologie was highlighting a new line—a more affordable line—for shoppers watching their wallets. Owned by Urban Outfitters, Inc., Anthropologie is Urban Outfitter’s big sister, known for higher-end (read: pricier) products.To my dismay, the "Pocket Pleasers" section features $98 wedge shoes, a $38 headband, a $68 tank top! All items are under $100 but still not pleasing to my pocket, and likely the pockets of many others who are looking to cut back expenses.-Karen
