Gilt + Ruelala = A Shopping Frenzy

Monday, February 15, 2010

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! The husband surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of orchids (my fave) yesterday morning and we spent the evening in. I don't really care for eating out on Valentines Day (set menus and overly crowded restaurants are not my scene) and getting my hubby away from the library was great!

We had some more snow today, which totally put me in the mood for online shopping. Not really sure why...except maybe it's because I went on a bit of an online shopping spree while I was snowed in! Between my recent addiction to ebay (I think I love hunting for things), the Trina Turk sale on gilt, and today's Lilly Pulitzer sale on ruelala I've been doing way too much shopping! I bought two pairs of super cute sandals on ebay that arrived over the weekend. (I realize buying sandals while you're snowed in sounds slightly insane, but I just can't wait for spring!)

Steven Salario Navajo sandals

Eliza B sandals

I've been in love with the Trina Turk Varnish dress since I first saw it and I was so excited to find it in my size on gilt!

I got the Colleen dress (Daquiri Pink Between the Lines) today on ruelala! I adore this pattern (I'm pretty sure it's the one I used to make by blog header).

Our local Lilly Pulitzer Via store, The Pink Palm, was having a fabulous 25% off sale this past weekend (including spring)! I bought the Del Mar dress (Aquamarine Seeing Things). I'm so in love with the Lilly Originals!

Did anyone else buy anything at the gilt Trina Turk sale or the ruelala Lilly Pulitzer sale?


  1. No way! When I'm snowed in, all I want to do is buy spring clothes! I'm in a wedding in April and I've been surfing the internet looking for a pair of fun spring shoes to wear! I can't wait for it to be warm!

  2. Im in the same boat as you girl. All the spring stuff is making me all warm and fuzzy inside on these cold snowy days. xoxo

  3. Glad you had a nice Valentine's Day. I totally love Eliza B. sandals, the ones you got are really cute!

  4. You're not alone - I bought 4 Lillys on RLL today.... :-) XOXO
