omg fashion EMERGENCY!

...in the best way humanly possible, obviously!
after a fabulous weigh in of 141.8 this morning (hooray!) i was patiently googling BB Dakota (after realizing that my last two successful and beautiful dress finds were from their website) and came upon these two adorable numbers from www.chickdowntown.com , which i had seen full page ads for in a lot of magazines but never bothered to visit:
 
 BB Dakota Coral Pink Crawford Dress + BB Dakota Coral Pink Samantha Top

Now get ready for the prices: $74 and $31, respectively.  A steal, right? IT. GETS. BETTER.
SO I am surfing around their site because i might as well since i'm paying for shipping, and I discover - 70% OFF RETAIL PRICES 
with the code CD70
 not even freaking lying, i feel like i have died and gone to heaven.  originally, my cart had over $2300 worth of beautiful, beautiful clothing in it, until i realized i couldn't use more than one code at a time (i had sale stuff in there).  thus, i give you my full priced (and now 70% off) cart:

Product: BB DAKOTA Eggshell Collins Lace Long Sleeve Tunic Tops
Product: BLACK ORCHID Gemma Cuffed Shorts Shorts

Product: JOE'S JEANS Ludlow Socialite Kicker Jeans

and now...
the final reveal...

Sub Total: $885.00

Thanks for stopping by my blog.....and for your kinds words! This little blog of yours is wonderful!

I just drooled over several things I don't need at your Stella & Dot site!!! Love their jewelry! I've actually thought about signing up and becoming a "stylist", but have never really looked into all of the details.

Do you like it? Have you hosted any parties......do you sell a lot........etc. etc.? Sorry for the 800 questions, but I'd love to know more from someone firsthand!!

You can comment back on my blog or email me at littlepinkshadetree.blogspot.com if you have the time!

So glad you said hello! Can't wait to keep up with your blog!! :)

Holy Moly you've got great luck. I love that bow bangle. It's absolutely adorable.

Thanks for becoming a follower, and I agree about being a little apprehensive towards Pandamonium. Although I love how Lilly still included a little pink in the mix. Life isn't complete without a little pink.
