Eye for an Eye(let) - and Some Discount Codes

So our dear Miss Amy looked so good in her new fluffy white skirt (here, here and here) that I immediately had to snatch it up when she posted that she found the previously sold out piece on Alloy. Aside from my apparent impulse control issues (I found a $10 off coupon that expired that day - I had to), I actually had been looking "forever" for a nice white skirt for summer and this one fit the bill nicely. It's nice to find a fullish skirt that doesn't swallow up my shortie short frame. Plus it has pockets (virtually worthless ones, but nonetheless).

(As an aside, I thought I had been really really good at avoiding Anthro's recent sale, especially since a few of my wish list items had been on it. But then last night the Castle Lake dress popped up on Ebay ... new with tags ... in my size ... from a reputable seller with actual pics ... for $40 buy-it-now. So of course I did).

I'm not 100% about the shirt though, but I was feeling like wearing yellow and I literally have like two things with yellow in it.
I think a yellow striped/floral print top with short sleeves and a scoop collar would have been lover-ly.

Top: Old Navy cotton
Skirt: Delicia eyelet, purchased on Alloy
Belt: Ebay find
Shoes: Franco Sarto

FYI, Alloy is offering free shipping on orders over $25 with code "ALFW25" - expires May 12. UPDATE: Alloy is also offering 20% off your entire order with code "FRIENDS" - expires May 10 and can't be combined with other codes.

And remember Amy mentioning that Alloy was "poor-man's Delia's?" (Cracked me up, lady). Not that it makes a bit of difference to anyone, but apparently Alloy recently acquired Delia's. I think they may have taken that comment personally and decided the best revenge was a corporate takeover. 

So no surprise that Delia's is also offering free shipping on orders over $25 with code "DAFW25" - expires May 12. They are also having a 20% off sale on all dresses.

And since I'm posting these things right now anyways, today's the last day for Lands' End's $10 off a purchase of $50 / $20 off a purchase of $100 / $50 off a purchase of $200 sale, with free shipping. Promo code is "MAY6" and pin is "1009." Also applies to Canvas.

J. Crew is offering 20% off all tees and knits AND free shipping on them with no minimum - expires May 9.

Lastly ... Boden is offering 20% off full-price merch orders over $150. Code is "G599" and expires May 28. So many pretty things ... why are a ton of them already on backorder for like six weeks?

  4. This looks so girly and polished.:D Thanks for sharing the codes.:D

    Happy Thursday, Lisa!:D

    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  5. HAHAHA, what a coincidence that Alloy acquired Delias! If anything, I would have expected it to be the other way around. Great coupon finds, by the way. I'm glad you like the skirt, and I REALLY like it with sunny yellow! I am a big fan of the white with the yellow. It's like the best summer outfit ever! I agree with you that the pockets on the skirt are basically useless, though.

  6. I love the castle lake dress! I bought it in the sale. You got a really good deal!

  7. That skirt is really perfect for summer. =) And those SHOES!!! Yes please!!!

    Thanks for your comment. And pass the snacks, girl, I'm right there with you!!! I love munching...

  8. castle lake twins! Excepts I'm the dope that paid more than double!

  9. Looking great in "our" skirt, hehehe!! Love it paired with the yellow as it makes the whole vibe feel cheerful.

  10. LOVE your OOTD, the yellow with the white looks so crisp! That is a great skirt!

  11. Love the eyelet! Perfectly springy, and works wonderfully with the yellow shirt.

  12. Thanks for all your comments, ladies.

    And thanks to Amy for pointing out that skirt - after a day of wearing, I really really like it. I did feel like doing twirls all day though.

    Spiffy - I think you took me the edge with looking so awesome in your dress, and when I saw it on Ebay, I took it as a sign and had to snatch it. But I don't have it in my hands yet!
