Woo! The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale has officially begun! I have to say: I’m impressed. The website has been functioning extraordinarily well (I experienced only a couple of hiccups), and the selection is fabulous. **This just in: Shop the Flash Sale here! Expect two more, on Tuesday and Wednesday at 11 a.m.**

Normally, I shop Lilly’s annual summer sale for dresses to wear to the upcoming year’s big events: holidays, graduations and weddings. (Sure–it means I have to commit to dresses months in advance, but I almost always thank myself in the end. Less scrambling and so much less expensive in the long run!) The past two years have been particularly demanding in the dress department, as I attended at least 10 weddings–mine included. ;) So many bridal showers, bachelorette parties, receptions and brunches to attend! And so many with the same people! But this year, I only have one wedding–my brother’s–so I can easily get by with the dresses I already own. (Though how cute is this one for New Year’s? Sparkly and warm! Someone buy it so I can live vicariously through you, hehe.)

Following my own advice, I’m only shopping for what I need: comfy cardigans and casual, everyday t-shirt dresses for walking around the city. I was a little bummed that I didn’t grab this dress before it sold out, but I did manage to score the same dress in the “I Herd You” print as well as this cardigan. (#success) How did you guys do?! I’d love to hear. See my favorites below.
