My Gilt Groupe Obsession Continues

Today was round II of Gilt Groupe's Final Sale. Once again, I got the email at noon in my inbox and was alerted by my co-worker that the sale had begun. I immediately jumped to their website and started to gaze at all of the sales. I found a gorgeous silk ADAM LIPPES floral dress in yellow (see above) that was still available in my size.

And so it began, I clicked BUY NOW, and it was in someone's shopping cart so I proceeded to click BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW,BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW, BUY NOW, for the next 5 minutes and then.................................a shopping angel reigned down from heaven and it was in my shopping cart! I scored the ADAM find that was normally $375 for $68.

About Adam Lippes..............
Adam Lippes began his career in fashion at Polo Ralph Lauren in the public relations department. In 1996, he moved to Oscar de la Renta, where he quickly grew to be one of the youngest creative directors in the luxury fashion world. As the worldwide creative director for Oscar de la Renta, Ltd., where he was employed from 1996 to 2003, Adam worked closely with Mr. de la Renta on every aspect of the brand, including design, marketing, and new business development.

In 2003, Adam decided to pursue his dream of creating wearable yet luxurious cotton basics. His desire to “fuse fashion with the perfect white tee” began with a global search for manufacturers of the finest cottons, cashmeres, and wools. Adam launched his eponymous label at Saks Fifth Avenue in spring of 2004. Since then, the business has grown from luxury basics into a full sportswear collection.

2007 has proven to be quite the year for Adam and the company. In August, he was inducted as a member of the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Adam staged his first formal runway show during New York’s Fashion Week in September to great critical review, gracing the cover of Women’s Wear Daily the following day. In the October issue of Vanity Fair, Adam was chosen as a member of their elite list, “The Next Establishment,” named as one of the most important young designers of today. In December 2007, Adam opened his first freestanding boutique in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District where his men’s and women’s collections will be showcased alongside a selection of hand-picked lifestyle items.

My first Adam Lippes purchase...........................and so my blissful day continues. Oh summer....................where are you?
