You might remember how overjoyed I was in late 2013 when a mysterious person emailed me and asked to bestow a mighty lot of Stila memorabilia. Well, back in the spring a different mystery Stila aficionado contacted me and asked if I wanted her vintage Stila ephemera. As with the previous donor, she refused to accept payment, even for postage, and sent me an enormous package chock full of lovely Stila cards and other goodies. See, Stila fans are the best!!
Now that I'm done gushing about the extremely generous people who graciously donated these items, let's take an in-depth look.
Even the outer envelope for this has an adorable illustration:
How adorable is this mini 3-ring binder?!
I think is from around 2003, since the "Look of the Month" palettes had some of the same illustrations and were released at Nordstrom in January 2004. For example, the little lady below was used in the April palette.
The donor also included some pretty cool Anna Sui postcards.
So wasn't that nice?! Whoever sent this my way, thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my Stila-loving heart!! I'm still in awe from the generosity.
Which is your favorite from this glorious batch of rare Stila items? I love it all, of course, but I think I'm partial to the white postcards, which look to be very early in Stila's history...but the postcard with the girl catching pairs of rouged lips in a butterfly net is pretty spectacular too.
