Lilly Pulitzer APS Haul

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!!!

Too Cool For School – Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Tint

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!

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’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.

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!
