Gilt, You Have The Sexiest Packaging Ever + My New Sexy Dress! / by Erin Baynham

My Gilt Package

Yep, this is the inside of the box.

The outside cardboard is a typical bland mailer. But as you slice the tape away to reveal your purchased gem...I gasped. I was in complete awe when I opened it. Kind of like I found a golden ticket. Branding, for the win!

 Gilt is by far my favorite sample sale site. You get amazing outfits for deep discounts.They have the widest array of clothes, decor, and now food!!! I'd never made a purchase on Gilt before, but checked the site everyday. I got a notification last week that they would have "tribal" print as a feature on Sunday night. You all know I'm slightly obsessed with African Prints [here are some of my favorites], so this was right up my alley. So far up my alley, in fact, that I set the alarm on my phone to alert me when the sale started. I used the Ipad app to jump on at 9pm, but I was a few minutes late--my dream dress [the Marc by Marc Jacobs dress below on the left] was snatched away from me! I'll find it somehow.


Anywho, the dress that I ended up getting [pictured above, in the middle] is a Cynthia Rowley strapless dress with a bubble skirt. I love it! Love with a capital L! : )
