Review:: Snookemlilies Monogrammed Umbrella!

 Tuesday, July 31, 2012

This summer has been, well, rainy. Its important to have the right rain accessories to wear so you don't have to sacrifice style for water resistant choices. 

In college, you walk a lot. There are no buses to class and if it rains you still have to walk there. Last year, I bought a cute little Moschino umbrella and it held up well but this year I wanted something different. I have always wanted a clear bubble umbrella, Im sure you know the kind, but found that they were almost two boring for me. 

My umbrella!

That's when I found Monogrammed umbrellas from Snookemlilies!

For just $25 the personalized umbrella comes with a 3 letter monogram and you can even embellish it with vinyl polka dots. That is a fantastic deal!

I picked one up in a black vinyl monogram, with pink glitter, damask (how cute right!), and white dots.
Tiffany who owns Snookemlilies is a real pleasure to work with. She is constantly thinking up new color schemes for the umbrellas and has a huge selection in vinyl. The options are endless. 

The umbrella works great. Its really good quality for the bubble style and Snookemlilies even finished my umbrella with the black and white ribbon bow. 

Besides umbrellas Snookemlilies makes the cutest metal signs, wreaths, and even personalized buckets. Not sure what to get? I love that Snookemlilies posts their completed orders on facebook so you have a better idea of what you want! 

I would 100% recommend Snookemlilies's umbrellas as gifts for girls of all ages. They are personal and fun and perfect for college. 

rainy day

Which Snookemlilies product is your favorite? How much do you love my new umbrella! There might just be an opportunity for one of my followers to get one in the future *hint*hint*


Review and Giveaway:: Country Club Prep's Frat Hat

 Monday, July 30, 2012

The weekend seemed to fly by, especially because I was glued to the tv watching the Olympics! I felt so bad for Jordyn Weiber last night and cannot even imagine working my whole life, getting 1st in worlds and then just missing the all-arounds. Have you been into the olympics? Gymnastics is by far one of my favorite sports to watch.

Want a break from all the Olympics talk? The Preppy Student is hosting an awesome giveaway and review from:

Finding new companies dedicated to making preppy clothes and accessories makes my day, so when I found Country Club Prep of course I wanted to share the gem of the store with my followers!

When you click Country Club Prep's about me page you will find the cutest little paragraph. "You’re here either because you’re preppy, you know someone who’s preppy, or you heard how incredibly handsome, sophisticated, and witty we are. As a betting institution, CCP has its money on the first option (and/or the third). You’re in the right place. Country Club Prep’s mission in business and in life is to find the best preppy designers out there and to bring them to you under one metaphorical roof."

 I like to think of myself as sophisticated and witty :) Country Club Prep has designs from all the top preppy designers like Elizabeth McKay, Just Madras, Kiel James Patrick, Salmon Cove, Southern Proper and many more. Its really a great one stop shop for everything preppy for both men and women.

At the University I attend it is common to see students (both male and female) wearing baseball caps embossed with some of my favorite southern brands. These are not the over-sized baseball with the stickers left on kind- these are fashionable and sometimes even monogrammed. When I searched Country Club Prep I found a large selection of hats and I picked a seersucker style from Southern Proper that I had to have.

Isnt the hat perfect? I just love the blue seersucker and the Southern Proper logo. The best part- its called the "frat hat"! Its one size fits all for both men and women and the seersucker fabric is so nice in person. The hat is so gorgeous I am not surprised it sold out! I would definitely recommend buying it in the khaki seersucker before that too is gone.

The Hat very quickly from Country Club Prep and it arrived in a cute box with the company's motto. Country Club Prep sells everything from Men's Cummerbunds to Women's dresses.

One very lucky The Preppy Student follower will recieve the illusive Southern Proper Blue Seersucker Frat Hat from Country Club Prep. The very same one reviewed above and sold out online!

Country Club Prep set up the Giveaway in a really cool one entry style.  All you have to do is fill out the main entry below. If you want extra entries you can also fill out the rafflecopter.


Jewelry haul!

 Sunday, July 29, 2012

Happy Sunday, hope everyone is watching the Olympics. Well I'm a little too obsessed with the Olympics right now. I don't want to look away and miss an important event.

Todays post is all about Accessories and Jewelry!


On thursday I told y'all that I was going Jewelry shopping and would post my haul. Well are you ready? I bought a lot! I went to the garment district in NYC where there are wholesale stores but they have minimums so you kind of have to buy more than you intend on!

I told you it was a big haul!

Have a good weekend! Which item from the ones above is your favorite?
