Holding on to Warm Weather


Hot weather is coming to an end so I wanted to get some last minute Lilly Pulitzer in.  This was a cute dress I bought for a great deal on Ebay a few years ago.  
I love the inside lace trim with the embroidered Lilly name inside.  It's also fun to play a hunt and find game with the fabric and find Lilly hidden in different areas of the prints.  I'm not sure if this is true with all Lilly Pulitzer fabric, but the pieces I own have the Lilly's hidden throughout.

    1. Thank you! The best part was I don't remember it being that expensive. I'm not sure how much they run now, but Lilly Pulitzer used to be plentiful and affordable on Ebay about ten or so years ago.
      Have a great Halloween weekend,

  2. Me too! Love that dress! Reminds me of Florida. Those colors are just incredible. I love how she can make crazy colors look so sophisticated and quirky and preppy. All in one dress.

    1. Thank you! I love Lilly Pulitzer clothes. I love the history behind them. Lilly Pulitzer started making juice at her juice stand and needed dresses that were colorful to hide all the fruit stains. I love how her psychologist recommended that she get a job since she was a bored, rich socialite. I always wondered why a Pulitzer was working in a juice stand but then I read that story.
      Have a great Halloween,

  3. Love those colors! I have been in tights and sweaters for weeks! ; ). Sweating, of course. : ). I love the cold weather clothes!

    I just read your comment about Lilly Pulitzer. How interesting! I have always enjoyed her patterns. I had no idea about her or her origins.

    You look stunning in orange and pink!

    1. Thank you Jenni. I have been loving colors in the orange family a lot more this year so pink and orange is a great combo for me.
      I love cold weather clothes too but since it was such a warm Summer and Fall, I got so used to wearing skirts and dresses everyday. Now I have to get used to the feeling of jeans and long sleeves with sweaters.
      Have a great evening,
      Stacey
