I'm sure it comes as no surprise to y'all that the Lilly After Party Sale is enough to drag me out of the blogging cave I've been hiding in lately. I just couldn't resist sharing the amazingness that is this sale with you.
As you know, I've quit my job and don't have a new one lined up yet, SO, I have been pinching every penny lately. That being said, I just couldn't resist a little Lilly at great prices! My sale purchase will be the last fun purchase I make until I am employed!
Lilly changed up the process a little bit this year, to help avoid their typical site crash, and all in all, I'd say I'm happy with the process. They're only allowing a certain number of users to access the site at a time, so when you head over you are put in a virtual line. When I first checked in this morning around 8:00 am, when the sale started, I was behind some 68,000 people and it was saying wait time was more than an hour. I decided to log off, and just now tried again around 11:30. I got onto the site in less than a minute, and while a few things I had my eye on are gone, I was happy with the selection.
I ended up getting a bikini and pair of shorts, both of which I had wanted earlier in the season. I also, had tried both on earlier in the season, which was crucial as all sale items are FINAL SALE, so that made the purchases a win-win in my book!
I ordered a medium in both, and typically wear an XS/S and 4/6 in Lilly for your reference.
I also got these shorts which I have been dreaming of all summer long!
In these I wear a size 4, which is my usual Lilly size for shorts and skirts.
My order, with tax, totalled around $100, which you can't beat, especially considering the bikini alone would have set me back $136 at full price!
This Elsa sat in my cart for a while, but with a price point still at $99,
I couldn't justify it given my current employment status.
In Elsas, I can wear an XS or S, and even have one M that I love and is a bit more flowy!
