Hide the Charge Card!


With the economy being the way that it is, I have really tried to save more than I spend (remember the new year's resolutions?!). Then again, I am related to my grandmother which means I cannot pass up a good deal.

This cute pink sweater is really similar to anther Lilly sweater I have that I wear all the time over dresses and tops. So with that in mind, I knew this piece would get a lot of us. Retail was $188.00 and I got it for $59.99.

Oh but of course I couldn't stop there! I tried on a pair of Lilly black pants that were extremely comfortable when I realized I don't own any black pants! Every girl needs a pair of black pants, right?! Retail was $198.00 and I got it for $63.19.

As I was swiping my card, I was kidding with the sales people (of course they know me by name, and I am sure they think "cha ching" every time I walk in). I said when I couldn't eat this week because of this purchase I was blaming them. The cute lady from Romania responded, "we didn't have Ramen in Romania so we would eat ketchup when we spent our food money on clothes." After being severely grossed out I said, "I would eat Ramen noodles so that I could shop more, but then I wouldn't be able to fit in my clothes!!" This statement is so true. I don't know how college kids live off of all that sodium!

I can't wait to see what the Lilly Rue La La sale has! Hope yall are finding some amazing deals too!

Cute, cute things!! You must look at these things as "How much money you saved!" According to my calculations, you saved in the neighborhood of $260+!!! Good Job Lilly P. :-)

I just bought a Lilly dress and VV cardigan on sale. Nothing like a good deal ;)

You got some very good deals!!! And, there's no way you'd get through this economic crisis without any pants! So I say shop away - there's too many sales to deny yourself a few treats!!!

When the sales are THAT good, you have to buy the clothes!

Haha I know that stuff will blow you up like a ballon. How about just don't eat? That's what I do!

You know Miss Lilly P, we look at acquisitions like yours as an 'investment' as opposed to an 'expense.' Yeppers.

It is just darling!
