Summer 2009: What I Want

So I worked both days this weekend unloading about 7 boxes of summer shipments. The stuff is WONDERFUL! As Summer LP goes, you will NOT be disappointed. I tried a few things on and this dress is definitely my favorite: It is the Monterey Shift Classic White Buenavista. If you can't see, there are 2 thick lines of lace/rick-rack/piping running down the sides. Plus there are pockets (albeit shallow) but who doesn't love a dress with pockets. I have a feeling that post prom/graduation/etc. this will be my first major summer purchase. It runs about $258. Part of LP Summer '09 is that they tried to lower the prices. I think some of the fiasco Jubilee dresses were WAY too much, and LP corporate learned a little lesson. Some stuff is still pricey though.

This is another dress that I came upon in online shopping. Now I haven't seen it in person, but I adore it online. It has a great patchwork print that I am SO happy Lilly is bringing back. It has a line of the lace/rick-rack down the front, just like a dress from late summer/fall 2008 of last year!This is the Charity Shift Patch in Multi Hollywood Squares Patch. This print combines all/some of the celebrity designs, which is too fun! I just love the brightness that this dress has, I can't wait to see it in person! This runs at $328 (yikes!) probably since its the more "famous" of the designs.

One of the items that I unpacked a bunch of were some great printed halters. They are going to be fabu for summer and the really hot days while still looking super cute. They come in the Mommy-and-Me set as well. I unpacked the Minnies stuff also, and LP brought back the size 14. Some of you very small women are going to be so unbelievably lucky! With a great pair of white pants or white skirt, you're set! They have an adjustable neck and the prints really make the white pop. I have a feeling they're going to be very flattering on most people and really look good for a lot of scenarios! This halter is the Hillview Halter Lace in Daiquiri Pink Beverly Hills Bubbly (what a name that is...)!!

The last thing that I think I want to get, at least before I go to school, is a really nice pair of Lilly aviators. I've tried on a few pairs in the store (or every pair of sunglasses in the store) and I really like the fit, and where they sit on my face. I've also been trying to track down the Kate Spade pair that Reese Witherspoon was photographed wearing but I never seemed to find them. They had a pink bar across the top, where the sunglass frames like connect, but not like the bar over the bridge of the nose. There is a very cute pair from Lilly that's kinda like the KS ones, but have a very cute side part where they go over your ear: I am totally obsessed! I think they would be generally functional with most of the clothing in my wardrobe considering the pink matches everything I own. These are the Paley Sunglasses in Tortoise/Gold. I love them!

Happy Summer Browsing! I told you Summer 2009 was great!!

Hey Katie! I just love your blog, we have so much in common! Anyway, I just got a pair of Vera Bradley aviators that are simply adorable! The pinwheel pink pattern is on the arms of the sunglasses and they came with a matching case! They look very similar to Lilly!

I couldn't find a picture on the Vera Bradley website, but this is fine: http://www.visioncareproducts.com/Media/PublicationsArticle/EYENPG3.gif
