Rue La La Success: Round 2

I don't really ever check Rue La La. I delete the majority of the emails and usually are in class when sales I might possibly be interested in go live. They do however, keep a good track of customer history and send me extra emails when Lilly goes up on RLL. I do appreciate that and for the second time, I was very lucky with my RLL experience. I had a nice sized credit in my account and like I said I only ever really shop when Lilly's on there, so I try to use my credits before they expire. I had my eye on a few dresses but my size is popular so they sold out in a hot second! As I quickly continued to browse (similar to many others) my items were yanked out of my cart! Oh no! What's a Lilly Lover to do?

I was lucky enough to claim a dress I liked, in my size and preferred color AND paid for it in enough time to make it mine!

My Kendall dress arrived today and I'm definitely keeping it! I was hesitant in the purchase making, but decided that it is far more flattering on than on the hanger (as are many things). I'm most likely going to wear this for an upcoming awards banquet (so now everyone I know in real life knows what I'm 75% sure I'm wearing but it is subject to change...) in 2 weeks. It's a very dressy dress that I'll pair with the nude heels I bought about a month ago on massive clearance at TJMaxx!

Was anyone else successful? Did RLL snag your purchases BEFORE you could??

Cute dress, my order actually arrived last Friday.

I bought a pair of navy blue patent McKims and the blue gator clutch. I posted phots on my blog.

Such a cute dress! I rarely get to RLL in time to snag anything but I'll be keeping an eye out going forward :)

ooo cute! I purchased two dresses and a handbag (posted on my blog). I can't wait to wear my pink and green striped dress tomorrow!

I ordered the Vivian top and the Hotty Pink Print Tunic, as well as some sunglasses. They tops are supposed to arrive today! I actually didn't have anything snagged out of my bag, but then again, I pre-entered my credit card info and bought each item individually - that definitely helped!

A few items sold out before I could get to them. I was lucky enough to get a pair of McKims and a Del Mar dress though. Waiting on my purchases to come in.

I just got my green Franco dress in the mail yesterday! I love it! Probably my new favorite.

That is a beautiful dress, I know you are going to look wonderful in it! I ended up not buying anything, I think my mind was too focused on other things. Perhaps next time!

Sending you a smile,

Totally know what you mean about the obnoxious e-mails! Finally had to change my e-mail to avoid them ha But I totally agree, sometimes they have great things - like your purchases! Congrats
