Five Fashionable Years With The Posh Peach

Five Fashionable Years With The Posh Peach

Hey there guys! Over the weekend, the Posh Peach, my favorite local store here in Columbus, celebrated their Fifth anniversary here in town! I, of course, had to attend! They had the event beginning once they opened. They were going to hand out goodie bags to the first 25 to walk in. You know I was going to be among the first 25. Not only did I get a goodie bag, but I made friends!

I got there at 8:30, an hour and a half from opening, and there were already 7 people outside. They had been there since 4:30 at the earliest. Talk about dedication! I was almost going to show up at 9:30, and I’m glad I didn’t stick to my original plan because by 9:30, there were more than 25 people out there. They weren’t playing with that free stuff.

Now, I was planning to get some What’s New content today, but when I tell you those lines were loooong, they were long. The best I was able to do was snag my goodie bag, exchange contact info and snap some photos of some of the new things I saw. First off, I’m going to be narcissisitic for a moment and show the picture I had taken of me in front of the Fiesta themed backdrop, because it was the first thing I went to. Last year, I was too insecure to get my picture taken and I’m kind of thrilled that I was able to actually do it this year. 

 

Now, moving on from that segue, my goodie bag, at first was completely useless to me. I had a scrunchie and some of those no tear hair ties, that look like those stretchy bracelets that used to go on keyrings, plus a 5 dollar Posh Peach gift card and evidently a pair of earrings, that I didn’t see at first. I traded both of the useless items for earrings and a bracelet from my newfound friends. Much better!

     There was also the customary snacks, cookies and macarons. The cookies, I found honestly lackluster this year. They weren’t very sweet, like a cookie is supposed to be. But that’s absolutely no reflection on the Posh Peach, because I love them. I will say that the cookies were so cute. It’s a shame they didn’s taste as good as they looked.

There was also the cutest little mini pinata on the table. 

    Now I can’t really say too much about the new releases at the Posh Peach. Y’know, since I wasn’t able to do my What’s New content. So, I’ll leave a little gallery below!

Whats New; February Posh Peach Edition

     Hey guys! Welcome to a new What’s New post for our very own Posh Peach, here in Columbus, GA.  Also, holy cow, is this one on time? I know the last post was a little different, but I hope you guys enjoyed it! I was absolutely floundering in my indecision on what to do with my hair. This post was gathered before my medium-chop, so it has my old hair in it- all future posts featuring the likeness of yours truly, will include my new-do, and I’m not even going to lie- I’m still way on the fence with it. I’m so on the fence that my first stop after leaving the salon was the beauty supply to grab a wig.

    That aside, I did find a few new pieces at the Posh Peach that I’m excited to share, and even brought some of it home with me (like I often do)! Without further ado, let’s get to the goods!

     I was able to find most things on the site- this was not one of them, however. It may be because this isn’t technically new to their shop, as it was on the sale rack. Who would I be if I passed up the sale rack? In the future, I think I’ll make an effort to confine my search to the newest-of-the-new for you guys! That aside, I really quite liked this romper (jumpsuit?), aside from the pesky little fact that it wouldn’t zip on the side that you can’t see. Oh, you thought I was just showing off my new tattoo? I was holding my arm in such a way to make it look zipped. That aside, I really wish this would have zipped up for me, because I really liked it! It was corduroy, which meant that it had a little give in the fabric and was warm. It broke my heart.

     I think, I would pair this with champagne accessories like a scarf or headband. Maybe a long beaded necklace, too.

 

        I did find two different pairs of corduroy pants for today’s post! I didn’t even think I really liked corduroy until just lately, but that’ll show me to think I know what I like. This particular pair is an earthy brown that I paired with their Back in Brick top, which genuinely can pass as a dress if you pair it with some super opaque tights or leggings. I thought these paired very well for a comfy and somewhat 70s vibe. I feel like a scarf would have tied it all together, and perhaps a paisley headband. Of course, my converse don’t lean to that aesthetic, and truthfully I’m at a loss for what sort of shoes I’d pair with this!

 

      This outfit was a little bit of a hit and miss with me. I wasn’t a big fan of the fit of the Spring Time in Heaven skirt or the stiffness of the material. The look between myself and the gorgeous model is a stark night and day- despite the similarities in our color choices. I really liked the colors of the skirt and was more than a little distressed that it didn’t quite suit me. The dog mama tee was just a little more sheer than I would generally prefer, as well. I feel like if the skirt ran a little larger in the sizing, it would have been fine. 

    This is the last thing that I can call new! I thought this was the Sweet Like Sugar wrap dress, but after looking at it closer I’ve determined that I need to wear my glasses more often. This is most assuredly not the wrap dress, but it certainly is adorable. I sadly, couldn’t find this item on their site after scrolling through the categories. This would be perfect for a datenight at a fair, dare I say, the upcoming Spring Fling here in Columbus? Suddenly I’ve decided that I’m lacking fair-appropriate styles and I need to fix that.

     This dress would be great with some strappy little sandals or some simple white pumps. Just really play into the sweet, femininity with a flowery necklace and, if you have long hair- a ponytail would make the whole look.

 

The Winners!

The items that went home with me from this visit, may seem familiar! They were featured in January’s What’s New Post! While I’m thinking about it, what was with that post title? Did I think I wasn’t going to be going back this year? Anyway, I’m super pleased that I was able to score my coveted funfetti cardigan and corduroy pants! Of course, since the pants are decidedly not new, I was unable to find them to provide a link.

     In this photo, I paired it with the Dog Mama shirt, that I almost bought. I decided that it was either the cardigan or it, and guys… I love me a cardigan. 

     Anyway, thank you guys for joining me for another What’s New post at one of my favorite shops in my lovely little town. And, can I just please give some props to the gorgeous ladies that model their clothes? Those are the faces of the sweet girls that work there, and they are just wonderful. Guys, please, share your secrets to looking so relaxed in front of the camera!

    I hope everyone is having a great Monday so far, and that those Resolutions are holding up for you! I, for one, have already lost my planner that was part of my resolution and I’m feeling lost without it. 🙁

Let’s kick off the twelve days of Christmas with a Wishlist!

     Hey guys! It’s starting to look and feel a lot like Christmas with enough sales to make your head spin! It’s that time of when we make lists full of hope for things we’ve wanted all year (afterall, we’ve been good right?). We also make lists of promises to ourselves, but this post isn’t about what we hope to change and maybe stick to, this is about what things have come out that I’m on the hunt for!

I have a few things I’m after from makeup to outfits, and video games! Let me know what things you’re hoping for in the comments below!

Cosmetics

  1. Tatcha Silk Canvas Protective Primer

I can think of no other item to start off this segment of my Wishlist. I’ve been hearing so much about it from various youtubers and I’ve seen what it can do in comparisons against some wannabe dupes. I’m enamored. The amount of product you get in this one package makes the hefty price tag worth it. I mean aside from the advantages it appears to have over other balm primers, such as NYXs. I’m so curious that I can hardly stand it ad I can firmly say that Tatcha has earned a place on my wishlist!

        2. Too Faced Pretty Rich anything

It’s no secret that I really like Too Faced, and this new collection they’ve put out tickles my fancy. I love all that glitters, and this collection definitely has it. The glosses are gorgeous, the shadows are stunning and I love the highlighters. I’m feeling the adorable packaging, of course. There’s something so fun and edgy about this collection, that I really want to add to my stash!

   3. Dose of Colors Mickey Lip Gloss in Rockin It

I’ve heard nothing  but good about Dose of Colors liquid lips, and I’m curious to try it. Why not start with an iconic collab with Disney? This color looks like such a cute nude, that can go with just about anything and I love the versatility of it. I’ve heard that their formula is pretty great, so this year I aim to give to give them a shot!

  4. Clairsonic Mia Smart Beauty Device

This one is more of a tool than a cosmetic item, and I’ve been curious about this for a while. I’ve seen a few youtubers use it and it’s been on my wishlist for a while now. I think the idea is great for people like me who are a little lazier with their blending. I try, but I have a little difficulty getting the finish I want. Chances are this would save me money on beauty blenders! Thanks to Tati for making me realize that I want this!

Apparel

  1. Cuddle With Me Sweater Dress from Posh Peach

I’ve recently gotten really into sweater dresses! They’re so cute, stylish and versatile that I feel the need to begin a collection. The Posh Peach always has the cutest things and I’m magnetically pulled in when I get within a mile of their adorably welcoming shop! This particular dress just looks so cozy that it’s begging for a Starbucks cup of something warm!

    2. Lily Tulle Skirt from Francesca’s

I haven’t had the ocassion to break out the tulle recently, but I want it to be known that I LOVE tulle. It has such a girly, princessy feel that I absolutely adore! There’s something so youthful about it. This particular one is a little toned down in comparison to my current tulle skirt but that just makes it perfect to wear to work! I’m dying for some work appropriate tulle.

    3. Calvin Klein Faux Wool Trench Coat in Bellini (Belk)

I’ve always loved the look of trench coats and have admittedly impulse bought a few traditional looking ones. But what I’m really after is a trench coat that is toasty, soft and flares out… and is preferably not black like everything else in my closet. I think the perfect one would be a new color for me as far as outerwear goes: pink. This one is way too cute and I can totally see sporting it to work when I need a little pick me up!

    4. Plaid Circle Skirt (HM)

I love plaid, and especially on my skirts. This one has the feel of a school marm and I’m kind of living for it. The length is great for a modest work outfit, but you could also make it a little edgier too with some accessories. I really wasn’t planning on putting two skirts on here, but I fell in love the moment I saw this one!

 Miscellaneous

  1. Animal Crossing  on the Nintendo Switch

You guys may not know that aside from blogging about whatever it is I blog about, I also really enjoy playing video games! Animal Crossing on Nintendo’s newest system has been at the tip top of my list since the system was announced. The game was finally announced at a Nintendo Direct in in October, I believe and I’m so excited. It’s up for preorder on Gamestop’s website though no date for release has actually been determined as of yet. I highly recommend checking out this title! Especially if you’re into cheerful town simulations with charming anthromorphic characters stress-free gaming experience 

2. RODE Compact On-Camera Mic

I’m trying to get myself ready to start producing youtube content periodically, and on the test runs I found my audio to be lacking. It’s not clear with just my camera, so I’m on the hunt for a microphone to start off with. I know that with me it’s not good to drop loads of money on a thing without knowing if I’m going to get a footing, so 60 bucks is a decent compromise. This is more of a practical thing right now rather than a plain ol’ want.

3. Starbucks Reusable Tumbler

 When I saw this particular update in my Google Feed I was super interested- of course the big question is whether or not they’ll be available when I’m able to get one. The tumble would save me money in the end and get me and instagrammable tumbler to take to work with me! While $40 is a little high for what I want to pay for a cup, the end result would be so worth it! 

4. TYSSEDAL Dressing Table Vanity from Ikea

The other thing I’m kind of hoping to have when I started producing videos, is a decent vanity. Right now it’s clear to me that I’m going to have to utilize other methods of storage for my veritable collection, so I’m not too concerned with storing all of my makeup in a single table. This one would go great in the space I have planned and coordinate well with the other thing I have picked out to accent my station.

 

That’s my wishlist for this wonderfully materialistic holiday! I’m not sure what (if any) of these items I’ll be able to attain, but I did keep my price points somewhat in the realm of reality. I have some big plans for the coming year where this blog is concerned and I hope you guys are there to see us into the new year! What sort of things are on your list of must haves this holiday season?

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post in this Christmas Countdown! 

Sticker!

I’m  trying to design a sticker for each day of this (event?)! Today’s is this, which I had designed ahead of time!

That little sticker is available on Redbubble, click the image to check it out!

[Haul] My Fabulous Black Friday Haul!

    Hey guys! I hope this Monday finds you all well (and not terribly broke, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming back-to-back). I know that Black Friday is the perfect time to not only make questionable choices, but also score some ah-mazing deals, I went out and did just that! 

Beauty Products

    My first steps into this (holiday?) event, was straight to Ulta. I promised myself I was there for lotion, but quickly broke that promise upon entering as I saw all of the Sale signs. I ran all over the store, careful not to trample the other guests, and found what I was low-key there for. Three words: Ten. Dollar. Mascara.

   I was hopeful that my recently discovered holy grail, lights camera lashes was apart of this promo. But it wasn’t- so I ended up grabbing Maneater and Troublemaker to test out. I had my arms full, but unfortunately was unable to actually drop the dough to get all that I wanted. I even had to leave a backup pair of Eyelure #005 lashes.

Black friday part one!
Isn’t it beautiful?

    The rest of my trip at Ulta for Thanksgiving’s early shopping, was Laura Gellar Highlighter, and Urban Decay’s Petite Heat Palette. I also managed to get my hands on apparently, the last James Charles x Morphe palette that they had. I’m pretty sister shook that they even had it, since the app told it was out of stock.

   And you guys know, I couldn’t just leave it a one day thing, I went back Friday to see what was left and managed to snag the Tarte Life of the Party clutch for 20 dollars. I got one more thing from Ulta this year that I had been dying for! The Dream Glow Palette from Anastasia. I adore the microglittery, ethereal look that these hi-lighters have, and I had to have them since they were 45%-ish off.

Black friday part two!
Because I don’t know how to stop…

   Since I really like a deal, I took myself over to TJ Maxx and continued my hunt. I came across two Cargo Palettes, both of which I’ve heard great things about, All that Glitters and Wanderlust. I’m pretty sure I have some of the colors duped in my current dragon’s hoard, so I’ll probably be doing a comparison.

   The last thing from Friday was a 4 pack of Anastasia lippies in different berry pink hues- I’ve been wanting more pinks since I more or less default to reds and deep colors. 

Anastasia Swatches
A little pink for my taste, but I kinda like it.

 

    Then, because, I’m not kidding, I don’t know when to stop. I took myself to the mall on Saturday. You probably know where this is going by now, but I didn’t. I had it in my head to grab some work-appropriate clothes. Instead, I got sidetracked by lots of makeup. Again. I meandered into Sephora, and grabbed yet another Glitter Flip for my growing stash, and the Becca Glow and Primer kit.

   When I walked by Bath and Body Works, I saw that there was another sale. Every body mist was $5.50. Are you kidding me? I love body spray. So, I grabbed a few!

Black Friday Body Mist
My favorite of these is the Hot Cocoa- it literally is such a warm scent! 

    After wandering around looking for clothes (cheap ones) I was unimpressed and made my way back to the car. First, I noticed an Anastasia Vanilla Lip Gloss (in Luna), at Dillard’s. I swear, I wasn’t really looking, but it kind of jumped out at me.

Mall Friday Mall feat Java
My Mall Loot- featuring Java!

    I love vanilla- so I needed it. I began the treacherous walk through Dillards… Again.  And toward my car. I was rushing by the M.A.C. counter with my will starting to waver. You know? I’ve never really looked at M.A.C. products? I always kind of associated it with the… elderly? Somehow? I don’t get the association- but I had it. A worker came up and let me know that if I needed help, just to ask and I felt obligated to at least look (or pretend to). I pretended too hard and found this gorgeous liquid lip gloss in the shade ‘it’s just candy“. Of course, it’s a red.

    Then I found this amazing liquid eyeshadow in diamond crumblesGuys. Guys. Guys. It reminds me of unicorns. Of course, I swatched it. I loved it. I brought it home. 

    Even more stuff in tow. I was in the home stretch. On my way through JC Penny, when I found two more things. A makeup caddy and a cup. Each for 5 dollars. I gotta organize this stuff, y’know?

 

Fashion

Since I kind of went a little trigger happy with the beauty aspect of my haul, that left me with limited room to splurge on the fashion side. I did drag myself into the Posh Peach on Saturday to see what they had going on. Though Black Friday is technically over, they have their 20% on the entire store still, as well as adorable cookies.

Posh Peach Cookies for Black Friday
Yum!

    Walking into their shop is a dilemma for me, almost immediately. I pretty much love everything I lay my hands on. To my surprise, I found another rainbow cardigan, this one fuzzy and warm feeling. I almost bought that on principle, who doesn’t love a good rainbow cardigan? I meandered over to their Last Ones rack and found this adorable ombre` sweater dress in pastels. I don’t have anything similar, so I opted for it.  Since I had to spend 50 dollars, I decided to pair it with a pair of mildly cat-eye sunnies. I think I’ll match this up with my neutral brown booties from Clothes Mentor!

    Since I spent just over 50 dollars at the Posh Peach, I got to pop a balloon. Again, I got the 20% off coupon, which went straight into my wallet for next time. I think I’ll use that on that rainbow cardigan if it’s there next time!

Announcement

I have some big plans in regards to some of this loot- be on the lookout for an update on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram! I don’t want to say too much here until I’ve figured a little more out, but suffice to say, I’m both nervous and excited!

 

What’s new: Revisting The Posh Peach!

     Hey guys! I know I did a what’s new on the Posh Peach a little more recently than most! But, proximity really makes it a consistent target for me. There’s going to be a what’s new on Lizard Thicket and Sassy and Southern, here very shortly! Maybe I’ll even visit The Blushing Brunette again. Who knows? I’m planning a whirlwind Weekend of content leading up to the Masquerade

     As usual, I’ll display my runners up and then save the victor for last! Because, there is a victor. I only did three full outfits for this post, so it should be a somewhat quick one!

     The Posh Peach has some amazing bell bottoms, and you guys know I love me some flare. I’m also a big fan of oversized sweaters. So this outfit is way  up my alley. These sunny yellow bell bottoms were on their new arrivals rack, and as luck would have it, they had some in my size. To my great pleasure, they’re not your typical button up pants. They have a wide elastic band in the waist and the fabric itself has a nice amount of give. 

     I paired this with a pastel large pink sweater. I’ll be honest with you, I love love love this sweater. It’s so soft and light, it’s perfect for the fall. I really liked it with these pants.

 

     This next one is a little out there, I found a Kimono and some white bell bottoms. The white ones, I had seen on their site and subsequently got obsessed with. I love the flare leg and the fit. The only thing I didn’t love was the kimono. I tried three different ways to wear this thing, and while I think it looked okay I don’t think it was something that really suited me. It was super comfy though. And had I been able to make it work for it, it would have been my choice.

 

                                                                    

   Neither of those looked quite right, and I wasn’t in love with the Kimono alone. So this was definitely a hard pass for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moving on to the winner and runner-upin one! I found this adorable dress on their rack outside, I knew I had to layer it. But with what? I scoured the racks inside to find a viable option and landed on this starry shirt. It fit comfortably, but too comfortably. It was a little bigger and less flattering than I felt like it should have been with this dress. 

     Disheartened, I had an idea. That pink sweater that I love so much. So I gave that a go. It works! I think this is my perfect fall outfit. Just throw on some grey tights and maybe white flats, and you’re good to go! It’s a little oversized, but that just adds some charm. It’s cute, feminine and (best of all) modest.

     This outfit now sits in my house, waiting for the temperature to dip into the 60s, so I can break it out. Speaking of the temperature dipping, I did get one more thing. Though on a separate trip. Really, I didn’t want to leave you with just 3 measley outfits, y’know? I made my way to the Posh Peach while on my lunch break, which may have been a lapse of judgment, honestly. Since I’m on the lookout for that new Anastasia Palette that I’m dying for. 

     But, go in I did and I found something. Well, some things. I  found a front tie purple shirt that I loved, and I had found this really cozy cardigan. Though it’s technically a S/M, it fits larger. I think it might be warmer than my usual black coat, actually. The moment I found it on the rack, I knew I’d love it if I tried it on. I tried to put it back, I really did. But there was a voice whispering to me, “it’s the last one, so it’ll be 20% off“. And that did it. With that thought, I took it to the dressing room and tried it on. 

 It’s generally more color that I usually go for. But, guys, I’m feeling it. I’m kind of obsessed. At the point, it was the sweater or the shirt. At $19 dollars for the shirt and the somewhat heftier tag on the sweater, I could only get one. I asked the cashier up front if they were going to get any more of these cardigans, in a last ditch effort to have some self-control, and she responded with “Most likely not”. So… The sweater won, due to it’s amazing versatility. I can wear this with (almost) anything and it would add a cute, quirky energy that I’m kind of living for.

 

What’s New: Posh Peach Edition

 
       Hi guys! Welcome to another What’s New adventure! I went to the Posh Peach after work because it’s been far too long since I’ve visited these lovely ladies. Walking in was a like a breath of fresh air, I didn’t realize how much I missed it- I was immediately reminded that I love their whole collection. I was so excited to see what new goodies they had for me today!
 
    My sheer excitement really made selecting pieces extremely difficult. I did eventually narrow it down to 4 main pieces. I selected 3 dresses and a somehow pirate reminiscent romper. They were all in the expected budget of between 20-50 dollars, not a bad price for the quality! The hard part was selecting the item that I would take home with me!
 
Posh Peach Romper
Burgundy Romper with a mild Pirate Aesthetic.
      The first style I threw on was this red, vertically striped romper. It was priced at 40-ish dollars, if I remember correctly and I see it being super cute with a cardigan and some gold accent jewelry. For shoes, I’m thinking sandals- most likely gold flats. I feel like the fabric may be a bit thick for hanging out in direct sunlight, but maybe I’m just too pale for that anyway. I’d probably pair it with a white headband to add some contrast. All in all, I do get a strange pirate aesthetic, which I’m really living for!
      I really like this for a super casual and fun look! You can take it all the way to the pirate side with a gold dangly, gypsy-inspired headband and gold jewelry, if that feeling moves you!
 
Bella Ruffled Metallic Leather Sandal  

Posh Peach Edgy Denim Dress 

The second item, and one of my two top picks for this post, was this adorable denim dress. It topped out at 48 dollars, being one of the highest priced item from this list. I loved the color, being denim with a hint of gunmetal grey. I loved the subtly edgy look of this dress- it made me want to find some distressed tights and black knee-high boots to complete the look. I’m feeling a small clutch for this dress, because it’s absolutely perfect for going to the club or just out with the girls. When I was wearing it, I really wanted to don some black eyeliner in place of my neutral makeup of the day. Seriously though, this dress was too cute and I was absolutely torn about taking this one home with me. Until of the next items.
 
       I feel like the name of the dress being “edgy” really lent the feeling of wanting to edge it up and made me feel like I was in high school again, a slightly welcome feeling in contrast to this terrible adult feeling I have recently.

Posh Peach Romantic Juliet Pairing

This third style was, strangely, juliet feeling. When I saw the two pieces separately, I knew immediately that I wanted them together. Whether or not they quite fit stylistically speaking, is another thing. 

This white-on-white look felt so romantic to me- something about it screamed a romeo and juliet feel. I kind of began to regret my black hair with this, because I see it with a blond crown-braid and night dewy makeup. I’m feeling some nude tights and nothing would be more perfect than white pumps. For accessories, I’m feeling a silver choker and some pastel dangle earrings. The dress was a clearance item, and was 20 dollars. I can’t recall how much the Kimono was- it was a last chance item, so if you like it, head on over to the Posh Peach to grab this elegant piece!
 
     My only gripe was that it was a tiny bit transparent. That may have been because they didn’t quite have my size- I made it work, but it wouldn’t zip up. I think this dress requires a slip though, or to wear something neutral underneath.

Posh Peach Boho Flowey dress
 
Now for the grand reveal- the item that stole my heart and my money! his last one had me completely obsessed- I immediately wanted to tear up because it was a little bit out of budget. But then I remembered something. I haven’t used the 20% coupon I got from their 4th Birthday Party. This dress is so, perfectly my aesthetic. Where the denim would make me feel like I was trying to be someone else. Someone edgier and all around cooler… or a person who goes out to clubs. This dress felt like I was being true to myself. The flowy bell sleeves- and perfect length felt so right. It was a whopping 43 dollars, or 35 dollars with my coupon (thanks, ladies!). 
 
      For accessories with this beautiful dress, I’d pair it with a flower crown (with white flowers!) and I feel like these boots work pretty well with the aesthetic. I can see it working great with longer more flowing hair, which means I have some time to wait! I sent a picture of this dress to my Fiance` and his comment that it “looks like me” pushed me to buy it. Instantly, I knew what I wanted to , and when it was in the bag and my rewards program was set up I was thrilled.
 
 
 
As usual, the Posh Peach thrilled me to no end. I absolutely adore so many of their styles and I’m always so happy to find my next addition! I literally rave about these beautiful people every time I visit them- my only complaint is that I can’t buy everything I like from them. And believe me, there’s a lot. They recently got in some Bamboo shoes, which is a brand that I love. I learned about this brand at Sassy and Southern, and they make some adorable shoes!
     
I’ll go ahead and cut this short here- suffice to say, they have some amazing selections that are fairly new. I definitely suggest looking around their gorgeous shop if you have the chance!

Posh Peach Celebrates 4 Stylish Years!

 Today marked the celebration of The Posh Peach being fab for a whole stunning 4 years. Of course, I had to be in attendance- I never miss a celebration. When I got there, the streets were packed with people perusing the street market like they do every Saturday. Today being a little different due to the Pride aspect that Mirrors Auburn’s Pride Celebration that’s going on tomorrow (June 3).

The lovely ladies manning the counter were as courteous as always and there was a worker milling about with a Instax camera to take pictures of the happy shoppers. Behind the counter, was a board with balloons that you could get a chance to pop if you spent 50 dollars. I was determined to pop a balloon and win something, but what would I find that I felt compelled to buy?

While I thought, I drank my Butter Beer Frappe from Starbucks I looked at the snack table hungrily.

 

They had the cutest alpaca cookies that tasted as good as they looked, cupcakes that I didn’t remember to try and a couple of unique lemonades. Cucumber and Raspberry, both were delicious but the Raspberry was my favorite, personally. The lovely ladies behind the counter offered me a free icee from the stand just outside, I gladly took them up on the offer even during this dreary weather we’ve been having. 

 

I tried on so many different things… like this skirt, this gorgeous white off-shoulder shirt, this beige crop top, and this tan flowy tank. An honorable mention goes to the Navy baby overall dress, I desperately wanted to try that on (and possibly take it home with me) but they didn’t have my size, sadly. I’ll keep an eye out, because it’s really way too cute.

After all of that, I was still empty-handed. Nothing quite tickled my fancy or spoke to me. Some, like the skirt, just plain didn’t fit. And had I gone up a size, it would have definitely dragged on the floor. I don’t even own a pair of wedge platforms, but I may need to invest in them if I want to play with maxis.

The Winners are…

 

I did eventually find this adorable Salty shirt, that spoke to me, that admittedly I had been eyeballing for weeks. The shirt took care of about half of the $50 dollar requirement, and I’m glad to report that I found a unique and cute denim skirt on the clearance rack. They only had one… in my size! Score! The two items pair together fairly well, if I do say so. It feels quite summery, and plausible for a day by the pool (if you don’t feel like swimming). Just needs a pair of casual sandals, I’m really feeling these from Kohls. 

 

I fell in love with the shirt the moment I saw it on the Posh Peach Instagram, and I’m so glad to have it finally! Now if only I could stop taking so many awkward photos…The two pieces together cost a little over $50, tax included, so I got the opportunity to take out some of my aggression on a balloon. Images of failure from fairgrounds past danced in my head, but luckily, I hit the balloon I aimed for and scored a sweet 20% on my future celebratory shopping trip. I was also rewarded for my purchase with a free t-shirt. It’s quite comfy, and feels soft. I was expecting a budget stiff cotton tee, but they definitely surprised me.

The Posh Peach Shirt
This shirt is seriously comfy- and the fit…. perfect!

The back reads “Loyal Local”, and that I definitely am! Once again, I must commend The Posh Peach on their wonderful selection of stylish clothes and their delightful staff. My only wish in retrospect is that I had tried one of the cupcakes.
