My Complete Lilly Pulitzer January APS 2018 Haul!!!

Fashion

FullSizeRender 2

I scored all of these amazing items during the Lilly Pulitzer January 2018 After Party Sale!

Most items were from the Lilly Pulitzer site itself, but I did score some from The Pink Crab as well as The Navy Knot! These amazing stores had even more items on sale.

 

The Skipper Popover with that super cute Alpaca Print (that you can clearly tell I am in love with…) was on markdown at The Pink Crab! And the Desert Palm Stripe popover and Amal Sweater was on sale at The Navy Knot!!!

 

The Getaway Tote with the cute seahorses was a total quick-grab since it sold out just after I bought it. Same with the Heather Grey Popover.

 

So overall, the theme to my massive haul has been Alpacas and Popovers!

 

Totally can’t wait to start getting these items in the mail and wearing them out and about. The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale was a big hit yet again. And yet again, I am broke!!!

Sugarpill’s new limited edition Valentine’s Day palette “Feline Fancy” has arrived and it is just as good – if not better – as I imagined it to be. It is simply amazing!!! The packaging is just so cute with such sweet artwork it makes the whole package a totally awesome experience.

Just look at the inside of the box, under the palette!

It is little details like this that make Sugarpill’s stuff some of my favorite ever.

And the back of the box –

Mmmm! Sooooo nice.

The colors themselves are beautiful and highly pigmented, true to all of Sugarpill’s stuff. I haven’t tried the liquid lipstick yet – dark lips are not really my thing – but from looking at online photos, it can look very pretty on a pale complexion.

This is the palette I will be reaching for this Valentine’s Day – and many other days! It is so much fun. There are some left still online and you can buy one for yourself here.

Poshmark Purchase of the Day – Holographic Tote

Fashion

This super fun holographic tote arrived today just a couple days after I ordered it from Poshmark in @chrischerie’s closet! It is really wild and no pictures really do it justice. Definitely a statement piece. It doesn’t have any inner zip pockets or anything fancy, and is a pure tote. This one might be my beach bag, quick grocery tote, and/or coffee-shop bag. It fits a laptop comfortably and seems sturdy enough.

Just looking at this one makes you kind of wired. I like it. I need that kind of kick in my pants sometimes. Definitely not a sleepy-day tote!

As of posting this, there is ONE MORE tote just like it in Chris’s closet here!!!

Holographic Adidas Superstars

I scored these super amazing holographic Adidas Superstars off eBay the other day – totally new and awesome! Took a gamble with the sizing and they fit! Yesssss!

I can’t wait to wear these with distressed light blue denim jeans and a white tee. I love anything holographic these days and these are super special!!!

For those of you who are curious about sizing – this is a size 6.5 and I usually fit a 7.5, so I actually did go a full size down. Before bidding, I did a quick Google search about sizing and came across this tip. Many people out there talked of going a full size down.

Not being able to try on shoes and buying them based on reviews about sizing can be risky. Like the time I purchased a pair of Pour La Victoire heels a full size up based on reviews. Those ended up being sold, sadly, since they were a full size too big…

Ultimate 90s Flashback – ALLOY Catalogue!!!

90s

THE Alloy Winter 1997 catalogue – one of my all time favs that came delivered through the mailbox. I kept this one because I would lust over everything on every page. And I still have it today! This is so vintage now, it’s hard to believe. Yet in my mind, this was just the other day! What happened to the time!

Take a look at some of the pages below…

Baggy clothes on skater girls. Un-feminine and un-attractive to some, but awesome, rad and cool to the rest of us.

fullsizerender-4

Track stripes everywhere, like the skirt on the upper left. Those spaghetti strap tank tops were popular too.

fullsizerender-5

Custoline! I had a Custo shirt, but I gave it away. Wish I kept it…

More track stripes and the rise of the ‘tear away track pant’

For some reason, this unattractive style on the above right page was something cool girl that I just would not ever be able to pull off, but was so awesome.

Camo and layering short sleeve shirts over long sleeve shirts. And little tees with graphics.

Accessories. Lots of them.

This Buzzfeed article found here has more Alloy catalogue pages, some from another catalogue I didn’t keep.

Late 90s. Best. Time. Ever.

Some of 90s style is back these days, but when styles come back, they are never really the same. Someone hurry up and build a time machine so I can go back & go shopping!!!
