After Party Sale purchases & thoughts

8.14.14_hp1

This post is a bit late as the APS started almost a week ago now, but I figured that I should share what I purchased, as well as some of my thoughts about the sale this year.

I wasn’t really looking for anything specific this year, and I felt like I didn’t really have any big ideas about what was going to be in the sale. I also forgot to set my alarm for 8am last Monday, so after I woke up, it took me awhile to remember the sale had went live.

What I bought:

MARLOWE BOATNECK T-SHIRT DRESS in Cosmic Coral Cracked Up

I have a very similar style dress in a different print from Lilly, and I wear it to work, to family events, as well as more casual dinners. I love the versatility, and this lobster print was too cute to pass up for $49!

JESSE ROMPER in Raz Berry Catty Shack

I was hoping that the Jesse Romper in Stuffed Shells would be in the sale, but I didn’t see it anywhere. I decided on getting the same romper in this print, which I thought was fun, and didn’t really remember seeing before. I felt this was a bit of a splurge at $69, although I love the little white detailing on the top and the skirt!

JULIETTE CARDIGAN in True Navy

Every year I debate investing in a Lilly cardigan, as they always pair so well with other Lilly products. I wasn’t really interested in any other pieces in the sale, and I wasn’t trying to spend TOO much, so I decided to get this cardigan for $59.

UPF 50+ SKIPPER POPOVER in Light Blue

I ended up going back to Martha’s Vineyard during the sale, which I didn’t anticipate before. I had been eyeing the popovers, which are another Lilly item I have always wanted, but never purchased! I decided to get this style popover in the lighter blue, it’s super comfy, although definitely a splurge at $49 for a sweatshirt.

Overall, I’m happy with my purchases, however I wish that the sale was earlier than September.  I also felt like there was a lot of items from last year as opposed to this year, and I found myself uninterested in many of the items offered in the After Party Sale.

I did like that they didn’t keep adding items throughout the 3 days, as I would always find myself going on and spending more money on things I probably didn’t need.

I would love to hear other thoughts on the Lilly After Party Sale this year, so comment below if you agree or disagree with me or if you have other thoughts entirely!
