Finds of the Day | 7.15.2015

My week started off a successful shopping venture (more to come about that soon).  So today, when a trip to the mall wasn’t an option, I scoured online for new picks.

Kate Spade Lily Avenue Carrigan $238

How cute is this?  Seriously.  It’s scalloped, pink (although also available in other colors at various retailers).  Not to mention it’s Kate Spade, one of my all time favorite designers.

Vineyard Vines Shep Shirt $98

I love the fit of this.  It would work in all different weather.  It’s casual, but still looks nice.  Definitely worth the price.

Lilly Pulitzer does it again.  I’m obsessed (did I mention before how much I love scallops?)  There are so many colors and prints.  Love.

Elephant Decor

Elephants are majestic, graceful creatures.  But better yet, elephants make adorable decorative items.  Obsessed doesn’t begin to describe it.  Certain elephants are functional (adorable end table anyone?) and some are just decorative (cute bookend?)  I created a list of a few favorites that I stumbled upon.

Daily Finds – Pineapple Jars

Once again, I found two pieces of cute decor.  One affordable, and one more costly.  The green jar from Francesca’s costs $24, compared to the $60 white jar from Design Darling.  Both jars are 11″ by 6″ and the only noticeable difference is the color.  *Design Darling also sells a smaller version of the white jar for $35*

// White Pineapple Jar $60 //

Cute… I want both!  I love the fresh look of the white pineapple, but the green pineapple is cute (and a great deal comparatively).  So what do you think?  Is the jar worth $60?  Or do you prefer the cheap, fun colored option?

Daily Finds – Zebra Dish

Today’s daily find is an affordable trinket dish similar to a high cost option.  I visited the mall how surprising? and stopped by Francesca’s, a cute boutique.  I found this adorable zebra trinket dish, and immediately recognized it as very similar to one I saw at Design Darling.  Let’s compare…


// Francesca’s $16 //

zebra 2

// Design Darling $32 //

Honestly, the Jonathan Alder dish (via Design Darling) looks higher quality, however the Francesca’s dish is half the cost.  Both are adorable; the Francesca’s dish is more affordable, yet the Jonathan Alder dish looks nicer.  Tell me what you think…
