Hey guys! This last weekend didn’t go quite as I had planned, but it’s okay, because I still got some content for you! I had planned to attend an opening a couple hours away, but due to the continuing joblessness, we opted to stay close to home. I gathered a little content over the weekend, first up is the Lizard Thicket, where they graciously hosted me and allowed me to try on some of the newest ensembles in their inventory.
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 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. 🙁
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.
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.
What’s new, guys? I’ve recently decided to hit some of our older locations and scout out new favorites that eluded me. I started this off by returning to Lizard Thicket, here in Columbus! I’ve spent a few days scouring their website to try to link you to the styles. Sadly, I wasn’t able to actually find anything online that I found.
Let’s get this show on the road with these four styles that I was enamored with!
Pool Party Prep!
One of the first things I gravitated towards was this adorable Gingham wrap dress. I was a little worried about the front, because historically, I’m terrible with anything that wraps. Imagine my joy on finding that the dress zips up the back.
The fabric was nice and formfitting, with just a touch of texture that was more evident on my back. I really like the cut of this particular item. The little ruffles give it an air of cute femininity that just makes this the perfect item to be paired with some straw accessories.
I’m feeling a straw bag, nothing seriously huge, but something small and portable like this, from Urban Outfitters. Since this is a perfect outfit for a day by the pool, you don’t want to forget your straw hat! This is a great dress to really lean into that summer aesthetic. I’ll go ahead and do a preview on some stylish summer accessories below! You can click those images below to visit the website!
School Day Vibes!
This second style was a modest over-all dress, which is something I’m crazy about lately. These styles are just absolutely adorable and versatile and work well with stripes underneath or even a graphic tee. The closest I could find to this exact one is this, I paired it with this adorable crop top.
This sort of thing always strikes me as school-clothes, probably in no small part because it was my favorite uniform when I was a child. Or at least close it- this is in a somewhat similar vein. Maybe that’s why I’m still insane about anything that looks like School Uniforms.
I really like the idea of leaning into the academic feeling with this style. I’m talking backpack purse, hi-socks and sneakers. In fact, might change the shirt for that… I’m feeling this one to lend a little more modesty to the look. Some accessories that I like with this are below!
Aim for the Stars!
The last time I went to Lizard Thicket I found this dress- at the time, it was a size too small and wouldn’t fit properly. I’m thrilled that I found it in my size this time (though truth be told, may still be a touch form fitting). To see some of the great things I found in one of my first solo boutique posts, click here!
I love this dress. It’s so shiny and seems great for all of the exorbitant partying I… don’t do. In any event, I can see this as being a lively dress for a night out on the town with the girls or even a casual date night.
Maybe I want to lean into the sparkly bits too much, but I’m not sure if I’m feeling silver or gold for accessories. You know what? Gold. We have to break up that silver with some contrast. For this dress, I mostly stuck with the Lizard Thicket’s website to aid in finding accessories, since I like to roam around the internet on my search.
I found a variant in this dress, it was absolutely adorable. The one I came across was yellow but was similar in every other way. I loved it. But to my sorrow, it didn’t fit me. I really, really wish I could find it on the site but it does seem to be missing some direct links in their catalog.
It would have been so fun to accessorize it with a lace and floral patterns, but I feel like any accessorization that I do would fall short in this case.
