I'm sure you all saw on the news about the debacle that was the Lilly for Target release. I knew the collaboration was happening several months ago, as did every other Lilly Pulitzer and Target fan on the planet. I thought, well I can stay up till midnight and order a couple things. Only then the release was slated for midnight CA time. I wasn't doing THAT. I figured some things may be sold out by morning, but probably I could find something I wanted when I got up at 6:30. WRONG. So then I figured, well, I can take a ride up to Target and buy in store. I'm up early, and will be home in time to do the barn chores and what not. I got there at 9:10, ten minutes after they opened. NOT A THING WAS LEFT. NOTHING! I mean, they had even taken the displays down already. So I was like, well, that's a bummer. But really, it's Lilly for Target, not REAL Lilly Pulitzer. I was disappointed since there were some cute things at very reasonable prices I was interested in. But not so interested that I would pay real Lilly Pulitzer prices for any of it. And let me tell you, those shelf clearing ladies had it ALL up on ebay that very same day. At no less than FOUR TIMES the Target prices. Crazy.
Time went by, and this girl I follow on Instagram had a few items for sale at not too crazy prices. I think she maybe made 10 dollars over her cost. But still I was all nooooo, I'm not doing that! But then I caved. And I bought two items. Here they are:
Have you ever bought items like this? Would you lose sleep and/or wait in crazy lines just to go shopping?
