Lilly motherload!

Thanks to great advice from some fellow DC/VA/MD bloggers I checked out Filene's Basement and found tons of Lilly Pulitzer! I tried on some skirts and dresses. I found one dress I really loved but it was still over $100-I decided to go back again this weekend and see if it is worth it or not (I am thinking yes). Another thanks to google maps. Using this handy search I found out that Rockville, MD has a TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Ross, and Filene's all within a couple of miles of each other! Perfect afternoon trip to find some fun things for the swaps I am in.

In other news one of my new favorite bloggers, I Pick Pretty, gave me the Diamond Blogger Award. Snazzy! I would like to pay it forward to:
Pretty in Pearls
The Pied-a-Terre (don't know how to do that accent thing, sorry!)
Well, That's Just Fabulous
Peeptoe Pumps and Pearls

Today I am off to Ikea to return the adorable pink dresser that was broken in the box. Very annoying!
