Lilly Pultizer- Colorful Living

Lillian Pulitzer Rousseau (born Lillian Lee McKim; November 10th, 1931 – April 7, 2013), better known as Lilly Pulitzer, was an American socialite and fashion designer. She founded Lilly Pulitzer, Inc., which produces clothing and other such wares featuring bright, colorful, floral prints. As the brand is popular with high society, she was called the "Queen of Prep". ~Wikipedia

I first learned of Lilly Pulitzer from the Martha Stewart Show. I watched the fashion show that Martha had and I just loved the colors and the textures of the clothes. I also loved the process of how they come up with the patterns for each season. Seeing the actually inspiration board was great! I love to see how the Lilly design comes together (see the show here).

There was also a fashion show (see here). The shift dresses are so colorful and pretty. The totes and accessories are lovely. I purchased one of the totes 2 years ago, (see similar here). I carry it during the spring and it adds such a pop of color to my wardrobe.

The girls dresses are adorable (see here). They are great for spring and summer and they are not to revealing. The shoes are so nice (see here). I would have to say that the Kat Kitten heel is my favorite! I think those shoes would look great with my Lilly Pulitzer tote!

She also has a book called "Essentially Lilly-A Guide to Colorful Entertaining".  I purchased my copy early this year. It talks about Lilly and her history. I also gives tips on how to throw great parties. So purchase your copy of Essentially Lilly and check out the website. Enjoy!
