Commence happy dance! Even though children are years away, God willing, I think about our future wee ones all the time! I adore Lilly Pulitzer and their matching Mommy and Minnie outfits. I did purchase one little girls dress to match a style I already own and I hope I am blessed with a little girl one day to wear it!! I did not want to leave a future son out of the planning, so when I saw this Lilly jumper on eBay I knew I had to make it mine! Particularly because as far as I know Lilly no longer manufactures boys clothing :(
If you'll notice the auction ended at 12:51:03 PDT and I swooped in at 12:50:58 PDT and struck with the winning bid. This is the secret to eBay, don't bid early and just drive up the price. Bid in the last 4-6 seconds with your max bid and catch the competition by surprise. Clearly eBay shopping is competitive sport! Now the secret to last minute victory is to sign up for a service like Gixen and let software bid for you. The web-based software actually logs into your eBay account and bids in the last 4-6 seconds up to a predetermined maximum. Brilliant!!
In other news on the interwebs, leather goods mecca, Graphic Image, is having a site-wide 50% off sale! That is my kind of sale!! Order by 3AM Tuesday July 17th and the 50% discount will be automatically applied to your cart! Seeing as how I signed up for their emails July 8th, because I wanted an iPad case, further cements I am in good favor with the shopping gods :)
I am hoping my new case arrives in the perfect shade of equestrian orange. I added my initials in gold. Swoon.
