Fun Interrupted

Hello-Hello! We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

Remember us nattering on Friday about all the fun activities we had planned for the day? We were going to scamper off to The Big City to do this….

And a little bit of this….

And then go see this….

But none of that happened because we spent the last three days doing this.

And we will be returning there shortly.  Frankly, it all rather has us feeling like this:

(We want to be utterly self-indulgent and let out one big waaaaaaahhhhhhhh! but proper decorum would forbid such conduct.)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In an effort to retain some sense of self-worth, to feel we have something of value to contribute (this is of value?!) , we have scraped together a few of the just-released photos from the upcoming Lilly Pulitzer and MAC cosmetics collaboration, MAC in Lillyland.

The group includes four Lip Gelees, all Limited Editions, all $14. From the left:

  • Lush and Bright (bright pink/yellow coral with pink pearlized pigments)
  • Preppy (blue pink with pink pearlized pigments)
  • Shift to Pink (light violet with silver pearlized pigments)
  • Resort Life (off white with pink pearlized pigments)

And there are two Technakohl Liners designated as part of the Collection, in Graph Black and Purple Rose, but these are permanent items for the MAC line and currently available for sale. Pop over and visit the good folks at both Temptalia and Butterfly Diary for more on the Collection.

Many thanks to everyone for all of your kind emails, Tweets, and messages – we really appreciate the way they make us feel much more like this:

We hope things return to a more normal routine tomorrow. Until then, smiles to everyone!

In The Pink: Lacoste & Polo Ralph Lauren

Hello-Hello!  Is everyone else beginning to experience those sure and certain signs of a changing season? We are definitely facing the harsh realities here at Princess InterGalactic HQ, hopefully they aren’t too dreary wherever you may be today.

Most readers are aware the month of October is now accompanied by an explosion of breast cancer awareness products, the majority are fundraisers for either the Komen Foundation or the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, although there are numerous other charitable endeavors.

We thought it might be fun to share a few pieces from Lacoste’s In The Pink collection; the items are available beginning October 1.

The tote looks great, we like the smaller logo and the inclusion of the second little bag. We found the flip-flops to be cute as well.

The oversized Croc polo… not so much.

The sunglasses look like they could be fun, a touch of whimsy.

Lacoste’s In The Pink group also includes a belt…

… and a wristwatch.

We are confident we could find a useful purpose for each and every item seen here, despite the logoage. (Heh-heh.)

Now we enjoy a quick glance at some of the Pink Pony Collection currently available at Polo Ralph Lauren, we start with the Logo Cap.

Funds raised through the Pink Pony Foundation go towards cancer care and prevention. Polo Ralph Lauren offers several Pink Pony Totes, like the Organic Mini Tote shown below.

We like the candle, that is intriguing as a way of handling several gift obligations in the not-too-distant future.

We also appreciate the fact there are Mens’ products offered, moving beyond the silly notion only women will make purchases from this kind of collection. Below, the Men’s Classic-Fit Pink Pony Polo

This shirt also comes in white, and is available in the Custom-Fit style as well. There is more Pink Pony Merchandise at Polo Ralph Lauren, it makes for enjoyable surfing/shopping with an eye toward helping a good cause.

What is the Princess offering for Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

Scout Dean-O Tote

Scout Dean-O Tote

Yeppers, this is the versatile, indestructible Original Dean-O tote from the good folks at Scout.  We have long liked this bag,  both of use several of them. Being able to contribute 30% of proceeds from sales of these to such a good cause sealed the deal for us: one is now atop our little mountain personal collection of totes.

It seem wise to simply say almost the entire post is Pretty in Pink, don’t you think?

++++++++++++++++++++++

Before we fly, two quick tidbits, the first a follow-up to our post offering a Sneak Peek at 3 New Lilly Pulitzer Lines. The delightful author of the story referenced in our post, Julie Naughton at WWD, was kind enough to post comments answering some questions pondered by readers.  Spotty Prep wondered about the eye shadow in the upcoming MAC in Lillyland collection.  Julie offered this insight:

“… while the eyeshadows (and the rest of the collection) appear quite bright in the packaging, they do go on fairly sheer.”

Our thanks to Julie for providing us with some inside info!

Also today, news that one of TP’s alltime favorite designers is now a United States citizen: Carolina Herrera.

Ms. Hererra made it official on Friday, Women’s Wear Daily has the story:

I have been here for many years, and I love this country very much. I love New York and everything about America. It was very emotional for me.”

We’ll end on this nifty note!
