...okay, disaster may have been a little dramatic, but still...SO bummed! my favorite dress? the Rachel Pally one with the little flowers? THE LAST ONE SOLD RIGHT OUT OF MY SHOPPING CART! that is the last time i am patient and wait to buy something instead of just buying it when i want it! this could have disastrous effects on my bank account, but i can't handle this heart ache ever again!
consequently i will be be buying this sucker immediately:
Lilly Pulitzer Petula Dress in Limeade Coral Me Crazy
pink and green, coral, jersey knit...it's like it belongs in my closet :)
Under the Palm Tree is running a great promotion where if you buy 3 full priced items, they're all 50% off - for some reason their site won't load for me, so their amazing customer service is answering all of my questions via email while I fill up a shopping cart!
in a totally different direction, i think i'm going to pick up this jewelry today -
Stella + Dot St. Tropez Statement Cuff
It's so tough yet delicate, and I love the color - it will be gorgeous with my Mystic Tan when I get back!! Hahaha this sympathy shopping I'm doing for myself because I missed out on an adorable dress is almost as fun as having the 'dream' dress. I think I'll still get the one shoulder one if I pass my board tomorrow, though.
also, i've found that i'm super productive in reference to everything else (I'm in charge of my ship's Public Affairs and Morale, Welfare and Recreation) - i've published 11 photos this morning alone and planned the tours and hotel bookings for our upcoming port visit, two things i was putting off until i realized that there was something scarier (my board!) to put off!
