The Reign of “Lily”

February 17th, 2010


Inspired by my time spent in Palm Beach this weekend, I decided to take a closer look into the line that has reigned over U.S. “prespsters” for the past 4 decades, the Lily Pulitzer collection.

Since the line’s conception in 1960–when Lily had the need for a printed dress that would camouflage the juice stains while she was working at her juice stand–the collection has grown to such enormity that  everyone wants a little piece of Lily.

To commemorate their 50th Anniversary, Lilly Pulitzer created a limited edition Jeep Wrangler in an iconic print (named “petal to the metal” of course!) for New York Fashion Week.

a rude awakening…

February 14th, 2010

I was rudely awakened by the excitement of my house-mates Sunday morning to wake up for the 30-story building implosion at 1515 N. Flagler Drive Sunday morning. The condominium has been empty for the past six years after the extreme damage of Hurricanes Jeanne and Frances.

“Sugar Daddy”

February 13th, 2010

I saw met this iconic doll on my President’s Day jaunt down to Palm Beach: “He exemplifies fantastic Palm Beach fashion,” said a company spokeswoman.”

“Cool sophistication in breezy Palm Beach! Sporting a dashing jacquard-patterned jacket with a light pink polo shirt and crisp white pants, Ken doll is ready for Palm Beach social season, sunning by the pool and a stroll with his little companion.”

soooo Palm Beach…

“The Show Goes ON!…”

February 11th, 2010

Despite winds howling at 40 mph and whiteouts that have painted the city with at least a foot of snow, spokespeople for the NYC Fashion Week 2010 have said though that “the show will go on!”

Super Bowl 2010

February 9th, 2010

Sunday’s Super Bowl was not only about sport and victory it was also about fashion and glam. From beach outings to pre-parties, celebs were practically everywhere showing their support for either Saints or Colts.

Although The Who entertained at half time, the beautiful and stylish Carrie Underwood took the show with the national anthem:

Watching the game live, this had to have been the most exciting plays, especially as a Saints fan (at least for the night):

Boston’s got style…

February 6th, 2010

I made the 3 1/2 hour trip to Boston this weekend to see one of my closest friends.

We did a ton of walking and wandering and came upon a few great sights…

so 80’s chic…

February 5th, 2010

its incredible how past trends come around… in the 90’s it was the 70’s,  in the late 2000’s its the 80’s.

ten years ago, i would have NEVER thought this was attractive. i would have written it off as some cheesy 80’s style that my Mom would wear.

on the contrary, today–although not my exact style–i can see how this works:
