Cyber Monday Stila Haul

Finally arrived in the mail today! I ordered from Stila this Cyber Monday because I really wanted the Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Wanderlust. While I was shopping, I picked up the Got Inked Cushion Eye Liner in Black Obsidian (only $4!!!), the Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Olive ($10 on sale!!!), the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina ($15!!!), and swooped up the bonus sample of the mini black Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner in Black. Sweet!

 

I swear by those Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liners. Although, the last two Brown ones I’ve gotten have not been as good as before…

 

The Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow is BRIGHT. It is SO glittery. Definitely a special occasion look for me. I’m more into the mattes and ‘natural’ look, so this is going to be for Night Outs. But I know a lot of you can pull it off during the day too! It is extremely pretty.

I have been doing WAY too much online shopping lately…

Lilly Pulitzer x S’well Part II!!!

Fashion, Other

Lilly Pulitzer has partnered with S’well yet again for another awesome co-lab! This time, bottles were available online this morning at 8am EST. They will also be available in Lilly stores when they open at 9am (a little early for this fun release!).

 

All the bottles are sold out now, and it is 8:20am. Can you believe it?! That was fast! I think after only 5-10 minutes, some styles were completely gone.

 

To get into the webpage, Lilly Pulitzer set up the popular internet waiting room Queue-it. I set my alarms and opened a few browser windows on my phone and computer. Bam! I was in! It was exciting. From previous experiences with Queue-it and these limited edition releases, you have to act fast! Put the things you want in the cart and check out ASAP.

 

I am beyond thrilled to have gotten all three bottles! An early Christmas present to myself!

 

Did any of you guys get your hands on the bottles too???

Lilly Pulitzer APS Haul

My August 2018 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Haul!

 

The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is exciting and this August 2017 sale was one of the best. All the items have not yet arrived – it can take a few weeks since they get so many orders – but they have started to slowly trickle in. I can’t wait!

 

I am especially happy that I scored the Kimi top in Going Coastal – this is from a little while ago, but it resurfaced during this August’s APS and I snatched it up in my size before it was gone! Going Coastal is one of my fav prints.

The Kimi Top

Another item I had my eye on was the Courtney dress. I had tried it on a few times in the store and loved the fact that it has built in cups.

The Courtney Dress

The APS is an event that really is not to be missed. The discount is always just so amazing. I am already building my wish list for the January 2018 APS!

 

Did any of you shop the APS this August? What did you buy?

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale August 2017!

One of the most exciting events of the year is here! This year, the APS is three days long. I swore that I would not buy anything Lilly for a while, but when the sale was announced, I couldn’t stop myself. Since it is going on for three full days, there are new additions to the sale periodically – this is keeping me coming back!

 

My first haul is pictured below:

I have had a few more mini-hauls since then as items I really wanted suddenly appeared – in my size! – but I’ll post more when they arrive…

 

To all of you shopping the sale – have NO shame when the FedEx person delivers multiple boxes to you… And enjoy all the bargain finds! I really love the Lilly APS!

It has been a LOOONG time since I’ve posted anything on this blog! Hey, there’s been a lot going on :). We all say that!

 

ANYWAY, although things are always changing, they are pretty much always the same – I am still a Lilly Pulitzer addict and the above picture is from my latest retail-therapy splurge. You only live once so why not spend your money while you can!

 

Until next time…

Jack Rogers Hampton Flat!

Fashion

Screen Shot 2017-04-23 at 7.59.57 AM

I just bought these classic Jack Rogers Hampton Flats. They fit beautifully across my wide foot and look so preppy! I got them in Platinum, of course, since that matches just about everything.

They are just SO comfortable and look casual-elegant. I took my usual 7.5 US size in this model and I can feel the quality leather starting to mold to my foot.

With Jacks, I always have to be careful and try them on because my foot is wide and many of the styles suit a narrower foot instead. Ordering Jacks online for me is a total nightmare that ends in heartbreak. But these – to all of you with a bit of a wider foot – this classic will fit you!

I highly recommend these sandals!

Decisions, decisions…

Which would you pick – the beautiful, bright Sea Jewels Lilly Pulitzer dress on the left, or the sleek, edgy Alexander McQueen keychain on the right???

Both are about the same price, but have totally different functions. Seeing as I already have a key chain I am quite happy with, I am leaning toward picking the dress. But by that very same logic, I already have dresses I am quite happy with too – so the ‘need’ factor in making this decision is not going to work. This is strictly a ‘want’ and a money-sink, like most all of my purchases…

Here is a quote by rapper Jelleestone to close out the weekend – it is taken from his hit ‘Money Can’t Buy Me Happiness’ from 2001

“..Money can’t buy me happiness
But I’m happiest when I can buy what I want, anytime that I want..”

Listen to this gem here

And while you are listening to rap, here is another song from 1995 by Skee-Lo ‘I Wish’

Ahhhhh 90s rap…

Jack Rogers Wedges Coming My Way…

Screen Shot 2017-03-10 at 9.17.07 PM

I just ordered these sweet Jack Rogers wedge sandals online – they were on sale! I haven’t owned a pair of Jack Rogers before so am not sure of my size… I got a 7.5 but have no idea if they run true to size, big, or small… They are final sale too. So if they don’t fit, I’ll have to list them on my Posh site… They are so cute and I really hope they fit so I can wear them with some of my Lilly clothes!!!

My Lilly Pulitzer Shopping Trip

After a long feeling, busy and at times pretty stressful work week, I found myself in a Lilly Pulitzer store browsing to decompress. I just took my time sifting through all the bright colors and picked out a few gems to try on. It was such a lovely experience. Lilly is such a mood-booster.

Here I am in my new Donna Romper in the Night Caw print. I love the Night Caw print!!! The Donna Romper has the shorts concealed behind a very cute skirt-like-flap with side ties. It fits true to Lilly Dress size.

See the cute ties at the side? I just love this!

My dressing room this afternoon! Lots of Night Caw hanging up. Also a very pretty lavender shirt. But I couldn’t buy ALL of it (i wish i could have!).

Close up of the changing room walls – nice shell-decor.

If you don’t have a Lilly Pulitzer store close by, there is always the online shop! Shop it all here.
