Gilt City Boston Warehouse Sale

Last night Jonathan and I stopped by the special preview for the Gilt Warehouse Sale.  This two-day event features Gilt’s top brands—from men’s and women’s fashion to home accessories—at up to 90% off retail.
It was a huge space that was filled to the gills with clothing, shoes, handbags, homegoods and much more. We wandered around the space checking out everything while drinking cocktails and munching on Pop Chips.
Marchesa, Valentino, Carolina Herrera…. I spotted ions of designer duds that were absolutely gorgeous…..but since I already recevied a beautiful present this week from the Mister, I tried to be good.
Jonathan snagged a pair of brown Varvatos boots that I really like, and I snapped up a couple Frette robes, and one other present for a little one in our lives that I don’t want to spoil by posting about.
If you’re around the city, there are still some tickets left for today, so check it out. More details HERE.

 

All About: Wedding Dress Shopping!

Okay – I’m back and have a GREAT blog post for you (which will hopefully make up a little bit for my silence as of late).

A couple years ago, I got married. And back when I was searching for a wedding dress, I heard about this little place called Vows, in Watertown. The reason I was so excited to look for a dress there is that Vows carries designer label dresses for a FRACTION of the price! Vera Wang! Monique Lhuillier! You can find them ALL at Vows. My mom went with me and I literally bought the first dress I tried on- YES, it was that easy.  I scooped up an absolutely stunning (if I do say so myself) Kenneth Pool dress that was an unbelievable deal. See!:
Fast forward to now – my gorgeous sister Abby, recently got engaged and wanted to go dress shopping – well, where do you think I told her she HAD to get her dress from??!?!! Vows obviously! Nowadays Vows is very popular- we went on a Saturday, and had to wait about 30- 40 minutes for a dressing room- but it was so worth it.  Abby found 5 dresses (the top amount you’re allowed to try on at once) in about 60 seconds flat. When she tried them all on, she honestly could have picked any single one of them – they were all so beautiful- Vows has a WONDERFUL selection.  The dress she decided upon is hands-down stunning, and I can’t wait to show it to you when she and Andrew get hitched this April!!! But for now, take a look at a few of the runner up dresses she modeled for us below. If you’re engaged and shopping around for a dress, I HIGHLY recommend heading to Vows. Try to go on a week-day if possible- it’s so busy on the weekends.

I also have to give a shout out to the very sweet Barbara who helped fit Abby in the dressing room- she was so sweet and helpful. I believe my mother asked her if anyone ever told her she looked like Lindsay Lohan, to which Barbara smiled and replied something like, “oh yes, a pre-crack Lindsay.”

Vows can be found at:
130 Galen Street
Watertown, MA 02472

(don’t rely on their website to see what they have in stock, they get new dresses in so often, they can’t keep up)
