Who else missed out on the Starbucks x Lilly Pulitzer x S’well bottle collaboration? I know that I did not peel my ass out of bed at the buttcrack of dawn to hit Starbucks in time. The gentleman managing Starbucks the morning of the release incredulously informed me at 7 am how there was an early morning rush for the limited edition line. We are talking 5 am, when the doors unlocked. You could say that the suburban SUV moms were out in full force that morning.
I subsequently spaced when the bottles were available online. I previously procured a gold one that I love, so I opted not to go the eBay stalker route. I am not necessarily kicking myself over it, but part of me wishes I had woken up two hours earlier that morning.
I will preface this with the fact that I am on a great roll with my Shopping Moratorium 2018 month of June. Ladies and gentlemen, hold your applause, I have not bought anything since the end of May. However, if I were to break my moratorium, it might be for one of these bottles. This collaboration has more size and pattern variety and can be accessed via the Lilly or S’well sites. If past is any indicator, they are not going to last long.
