LP Sale = Two Thumbs Down, But Cocktails Tonight = Two Thumbs Up!

Since everyone is talking about it, I guess I'll chime in.  Lilly sale on RueLaLa yesterday =  Booooo.....  Everything I wanted was sold out in my size.  I was signed in at 11:01.  Who are these people?  How can they select and check out in under 1 minute?  It wasn't a total loss, as I ended up with these:

(Lilly Pulitzer "Palm Beach" Pink Twill Pant)

Louis milked his birthday for all it was worth.  I think he really did know it was his birthday.  He was very demanding, and I obliged.  He met a new little girl last night, and he snuggled with her.  Bunches.  I enjoyed a delish dinner in honor of Louis' birthday, and spent some QT with a dear friend.  And then...a lightning storm came to town.  Poor little Louis is apparently not a fan.  He started shaking and hid his head under a blanket :-o  How did I not know this about my little pup?  Poor baby.

Tonight I was invited to attend a little cocktail soirée to welcome some new people to Smalltown, VA.  I picked out my outfit this morning.  It's bright, and flirty and just perfect if you ask me :)  I'm somewhat excited.  Meeting new people is always a treat...especially around here!

I'm not much a shopper these days for clothes, but then when all you do is go to work and come home who needs spiffy clothes...lol

Awww There were a couple dresses I wanted, but not in my size either. Boooo I did get a dress (Stephanie Shift) and the trouble hibiscus" desk set (one of my fav prints). Luckily I shop it all the time, so i have the quick check out now button. Their past sale, I ended up with zilch.
Aww poor Louis! Momma B's dog (huge lab) is afraid of storms too (hides under bed like an ostrich because she's too big). I always feel bad for her.
Have fun at your cocktail soiree!! Meeting new people is always great! :)
XOXO- Vy

Those pants are adorable, and would look so ridiculous on me that it is making me laugh. I am sure you will look hot!

I have heard many rumblings about the sale yesterday! I guess I didn't miss as much as I thought I had. At least you snagged a great buy! Love them.

Hannah said...

I didn't find anything either. I logged about 15 minutes into it, and everything I might have liked to order was already gone. I found you via Friday Follow. Happy weekend!

I love those pants! I have the dress in that print. It's so cute. It looks really good with nude shoes, I wear my dress with nude flats.

I snagged your adorable button, by the way :)

Happy weekend, lovey!!
