Sorry for the silence around here - it's been yet another long blogging break on my part! I'm going to hopefully get more into blogging once school starts up again but I'm not sure how consistent it'll be. Apparently having a life outside of graduate school is borderline impossible, which definitely makes me a little nervous for the start of classes in September.
On a happier note, I am so excited about all of my After Party sale purchases from Lilly Pulitzer! While I can't shop on the main Lilly site (any time you want to start shipping outside of the US, Lilly, you just let me know), I managed to score some great Lilly items from stores like Village Palm - which is my go-to store for all things Lilly - & Ocean Palm. Let me just tell you, though, that shopping this year's sale was my #ohshift moment. I tried to order online through one Lilly store (which promised it could ship internationally through it's site), only to spend over half an hour trying to figure out why there were no shipping options for my address. Ask me how thrilled I was about that at six in the morning...Luckily, I could still order via phone so after trying to get through to both stores (plus leaving a voicemail or two) all morning, I ended up with a few items off of my wish list!
Tate skirt in Resort White "Watch Out"
Originally $98; on sale for $54 at Village Palm!
I had been trying to track down this skirt for what feels like forever. I had purchased it in the "She She Shells" print back in July & couldn't justify buying the same skirt in two prints. Needless to say, it was definitely at the top of my sale wish list! A nautical print & anchor details - how could I resist?
Cala skort in Hotty Pink "Get Crackin'"
Originally $78; on sale for $39 at Village Palm!
Like the Tate, I had bought the Cala earlier this summer. After basically wearing my Cala in "Lobstah Roll" to death this summer, I figured I might as well get it in another print!
Murfee scarf in Spa Blue "Nice Tail"
Originally $118; on sale for $59 at Ocean Palm!
The Little Mermaid is my favourite Disney movie of all time, so I just had to have this mermaid print scarf! I wish DTE & I were going back to Disneyland over New Year's this year - how cute would this scarf be for photos with Ariel?!
"Fa La Lilly" holiday cards
Originally $17.95; on sale for $8.95 at Ocean Palm!
I was so excited to see Christmas cards included in this year's sale! I've always wanted Lilly holiday cards & can't wait to mail a few of these out this year!
Did you purchase anything in the sale? What was your favourite item that you bought? Anything you missed out on? Let me know! I love reading about everyone's sale purchases!
