I stalked Oilily for a long time before finally buying.  The rumors… their prices… everything seemed to be telling me that they were ah-mazing.  Sadly, they no longer have stores in the US and get this:  $45.00 to order off their website where everything is shipped from the UK.

But they kept appearing on Zulily and MyHabit.  So I kept stalking.  Finally I couldn’t take it anymore!  Hoping I could rid myself of the obsession by ordering one outfit and maybe not falling in love, I took the plunge.  I know you guys are on the edge of your seats and will be shocked to learn the outcome:  Against *all* odds, my plan backfired.


Oilily Daantje Pinafore and Turquoise Cardigan – runs 1 size small in U.S. sizes. LOVE IT.

Yeah, so un unfortunately this set turned out to be gorgeous.  And unfortunately there is no truly cheap way to get Oilily.  With shipping this hit me about $100 (off Zulily) and I think I’ll be lucky to sell it for $40 (resale here would be either Ebay or European Children’s Clothing Resale Group on Facebook).  If by chance you’re new to MyHabit, they still have some Oilily dresses up and you could apply your $20 new customer credit (to any order >$50).

But there you have it.  A few IRL (“In Real Life”) pics for the curious.
