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!

 

I am also awaiting a huge shipment of Trust Fund Beauty nail polishes that I ordered as a pick-me-up a few days ago and will do a review of that at some point.

 

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…

Fashion

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

Fashion

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.

Too Cool For School – Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Tint

Beauty

screen-shot-2017-02-17-at-5-46-40-am

Too Cool For School is the brand that brought us Egg Mellow Butter (a DREAM!) and I was curious to try their cosmetics line. What better places to start than with a lip tint! That stained, i-just-drank-a-red-drink lip look is very trendy these days and I am always looking for something to achieve this. So I purchased the Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Tint in #1 Lost in You. It is sooooo cute!

The packaging really caught my eye! Look at how this pencil was wrapped and the artwork inside! LOVE!

screen-shot-2017-02-17-at-5-46-56-amscreen-shot-2017-02-17-at-5-47-16-am

I have tried this and actually have used it almost every day going to work this week. Next I want to try another shade and another product of theirs. The Mascara, maybe? Has anyone  tried anything else from Dinoplatz?

 

Sugarpill Cosmetic’s Feline Fancy Valentine’s Palette has ARRIVED!!!

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.

Ban.do Coffee Tumbler!

Totally awesome Ban.do coffee tumbler from Cashmere & Mango, a sweet online boutique of fun stuff! Cashmere & Mango is also on Poshmark. I am so addicted to shopping, it is not even funny… But this is a very practical item for me since I am a caffeine addict. I love hanging onto cute coffee tumblers as I run around!

Poshmark Purchase of the Day – Holographic Tote

Fashion

image

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!!!
