Lilly Pulitzer x Society Social

lilly_pulitzer_-_7With a Nor’easter looming this week, the thought of sun and sunny things is mighty appealing! So, leave it to Lilly Pulitzer and Society Social (of bar cart fame) for creating an amazing collaboration. Available for one day only – March 18th, – if you spend a certain amount (it’s kind of a lot) at any Lilly boutique or online, you can have a Lilly approved barcart, with accoutraments, for your self!

If you have daughters, it would be the ideal day to shop, so you could make the minimum. Otherwise, use this Palm Beach inspired bar cart styling to create your own version!lilly_pulitzer_-_2 lilly_pulitzer_-_5 lilly_pulitzer_-_6 lilly_pulitzer-_8_85507dc6-5630-4fe0-980a-55d4211818f1In the words of Lilly….”The Lilly girl is always full of surprises. She lives every day like it’s a celebration, never has a dull moment, and makes every hour a happy hour.”

Holiday Shopping – NYC Style

IMG_7733

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. It’s basically a 4 day sprint to get the best deals.

But, there’s nothing quite like walking the streets of NYC, where stores have treated us all to their most exquisite holiday decor. Walking up 5th Avenue earlier this week was simply mesmerizing. I always know it will be, but it’s still fun to see what the stores will entice us with. Window shopping at its finest.IMG_7738 IMG_7740 IMG_7742 IMG_7749These stores are fun to look at, but I’m not really buying. For gift items priced for the rest of us, there are a couple of fun Pop-Up shops that you might want to check out while you’re in the city for the holidays.featuredImg-calendarGoop Mrkt is popping up at the Shops at Columbus Circle now through December 24th. Lines such as Carven, Nilli Lotan, NLST, Fleur de Mal, Heather Taylor Home and Staub, just to name a few. I was so disappointed to miss their Pop-Up in Dallas last Fall by just one day, so you can bet I’ll be checking it out.Pop-Up-Flyer-731x1024Some of my very favorite ladies will be joining forces at the showroom of Society Social and Inslee to host a Holiday Pop-Up Shop between Dec 3rd-Dec 20th. If you’re in Soho, don’t miss this colorful collaboration!

Let the shopping games, discounts and wrapping begin!

Accessories that Ring My Bell

Whether you’re styling a bar cart or a bookcase, having a few vintage pieces can lend a little gravitas to your vignettes. I fell for the bell above from Society Social’s vintage treasure trove. My grandmother had a little bell she used to call everyone to dinner. I think this will be a fun way to gather guests from where we have our cocktails to the dining room when dinner is served. 
Can you spot the vintage pieces in these photos?

Whether you’re at the flea market or shopping online, if you like it, buy it. It’ll probably be gone the next time you check.

What kind of pieces ring your bell?
