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?

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!).

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

Birds of North America Planes Lovebird Dress

Birds of North America is a clothing company from Canada that makes really pretty dresses. I just ordered one called the Lovebird Dress in the black planes pattern. I could not resist! I love the print – retro airplane designs – and the dress is totally flattering with a full front button closure.

It is made of a non-stretch cotton, so I totally took a gamble on the size. I have purchased dressed from them in the past, so I emailed the designer, Hayley, from the address on the website, and she helped me pick a size that she thought would fit based on my previous purchases. Totally amazing service, and the dress fit 100% perfectly!!!

It is a little long on me since I’m kind of short, but with some heels, no problem. The look is sort of retro-vintage and a little conservative. For some reason, wearing the dress gives me an ‘I Love Lucy’ vibe. I can make this dress into a pin-up look with Victory Rolls in my hair, some red lipstick, and a pair of sweet heels.

Addicted to Shopping – But Who can Resist Good Sale Deals?!

I couldn’t help it. More mark-downs in the Aritzia sale. Most stuff is gone in my size, but there are still a few gems out there and items on my wishlist I have been eyeing all season. Why not. This is the best Aritzia sale of the year. It has become pretty much an annual tradition for me to repeatedly return to the Aritzia site and order sale things.

Like the Ernest Camisole – not at all worth $100, but on sale at $39.99? Sure! I love it and it will look great with all my rose-gold/marble trending jewelry!

This is TODAY.

I was up early and browsing on the Lilly Pulitzer site, marking things for my wishlist. Then I noticed markdowns popping up on some items! The search was acting kind of funny. but I saw three things I really liked and quickly put them in my cart and bought them. Now, as of 6:30am ET, you cannot even access the site. They are using the Queue-it platform which is the same thing Too Faced used for the Sweet Peach launch.

I wonder if I’ll get my Cathy Shift Dress and two tops? I got a confirmation number… Hm…

Sugarpill’s Pumpkin Spice lipstick & eyeshadow has arrived just in time for Christmas! 

Getting this little box was super exciting today. I just *love* Sugarpill’s packaging. Their mailer-box is even so super cute and pink. Soooo adorable.

In my panic to order Pumpkin Spice, I ordered 2 of both the lipstick and eyeshadow. I was scared that it would sell out. It totally didn’t sell out! I’m saving them as back ups and might gift them to one of my bffs who likes make up. 🙂

This is the back of the eyeshadow box – how cute is that?!?
