Confessions of a Shopaholic in Alabama...

Happy Thursday my friends! Hope you're having a fantastic day and enjoying beautiful late Spring weather! We're lucky here - no oil - at least yet. The longer it takes to get here, the more hopeful I am for a reprieve. *Fingers and toes are crossed*

Welcome to Confessions of a Shopaholic - I felt the need to confess to someone - and it just didn't seem appropriate to tell DH. (insert wink and smile). Do you remember about the fantastic sale at one of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer Via Shoppes, Under The Palm Tree? Purchase 4 or more items and receive 50% off? Do you remember how stressed I've been over the oil spill crisis? A little retail therapy was on yesterday's agenda........

These goodies are on their way to me and I'm thrilled!

Lilly Pulitzer Worth Shift in Stuffed Shells

Lilly Pulitzer Sandra Dress in Starfruit Yellow Dahlia

Lilly Pulitzer Hightide Tankini Top & Beachy Briefs (I'm so optimistic about the oil spill I purchased a new swimsuit - surely this is a good sign!)
If you can believe it, I actually wanted to purchase a few more pieces but decided to leave them for the next great sale. Too bad I'm not a Mother, I could tell DH "these are my Mother's Day gifts, and I saved you the trouble of going shopping!". Does that really work??? let me know! :-)

Remember, Shopaholic Confessions are always welcome here - and they don't always need to be MY Confessions. It makes me feel less guilty to know I'm not the only one trying to create a healthy economy!

Have a lovely Thursday!


  1. You have to tell your husband the following... in case he gives you grief. "A happy wife is a happy life!" ;)

  2. I agree with Entertaining mom and I must say those pieces are to die for. I love me some clothes shopping but do you know what i shop for without even blinking an eye, without even thinking I will pick up any type of cooking gadget or tool, big or small, expensive or not and just not care. It really is a problem of mine. I figure though and tell the hubby that, "I bought it for us so I can cook for you"! LOL! Sometimes he buys it most times he doesn't! Love you girl! Come and visit, its been a while!

  3. Great purchases! Here in FL we are crossing our fingers as well!

  4. My uncle, who I totally agree with says "we were born shop because we were born naked!" Haha!

  5. Love your choices! You were right, they are amazingly quick on shipping items out. I ordered my items on Saturday, and got them yesterday! Very impressed. I seriously wanted to order more, but a girl has to draw the line somewhere. :)

  6. Oh what GREAT purchases!!! Xoxo-BLC

  7. Ahhhhhh, color me jealous. I've totally been drooling over that yellow number!

  8. Just remind DH you are keeping the UPS man employed! :-)

  9. Great scores! Woo hoo!! Love that gator suit :)

  10. Soo jealous you got the Worth shift in Stuffed Shells...they were out of my size. :(
    Hope you are enjoying your new Lilly as much as I have been enjoying mine! Thanks again for sharing this great deal with us!
