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?

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…

 

 

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.

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!!!

Latest Poshmark Purchase from Brianna’s Closet @bowen4 !

I was super excited when the mail came yesterday and my latest Poshmark purchase arrived – this super cute nautical tank from @bowen4 ‘s Poshmark closet! Brianna’s closet (@bowen4) has so many really cute things. The tank was all wrapped up in cute tissue paper with a sweet thank you card too that made it even more exciting. The top has a really cute little bow at the back (not pictured) which makes it even more special. This top is still available in a variety of sizes here.

Mini Ban.do Haul

Rose gold bobby pins and a drink tumbler from Ban.do – my latest little shopping haul. Ban.do has the most awesome stuff. I’ve jumped right into the rose gold trend, and so has Ban.do. I can’t wait to flash these bobby pins in my hair. And the tumbler! I’ll have to hang onto it as I run around town being busy. We are all very busy and why not say it on your cup!

Check out the Ban.do site here.

Oh Joy! for Target Gold Lady Planter

Home

lady-gold

I caved in and bought the Gold Lady Planter by Oh Joy! for Target. But since I have not had a chance to actually plant something in it, I have decided to make it into a spare toilet roll holder. It fits 1 standard sized toilet paper roll perfectly! OK, so maybe some would say this is a bastardization of how this planter is supposed to be (the greenery on top is supposed to act like hair over her face..), but hey – it works. And it’s cute too! It really makes my bathroom interesting!

I haven’t decided yet if I’ll keep it as is, or go somewhere to get a plant to put in it. The problem with plants is the upkeep and the last time I tried to foster foliage, it was a fail.

You can buy the Oh Joy! for Target Gold Lady Planter here.

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!
