Happy (Belated) Birthday Lilly Pulitzer!

Earlier this week, fashionista Lilly Pulitzer celebrated her 79th birthday.

"It all started with a juice stand in Palm Beach 50 years ago. Lilly, a young New York Socialite, had just eloped with Peter Pulitzer and settled in Palm Beach. Looking for a fun hobby, Lilly decided to open a juice stand featuring local citrus. Her business was a hit, but all the squeezing made a mess of her clothes, so Lilly designed a dress to camouflage the stains. The result: A comfortable sleeveless shift made of bright, colorful printed cotton in pink, green, yellow and orange–the Classic Shift."

To me, Lilly's colorful patterns and prints scream summer. But Lilly-Lovers can now carry  their wardrobe through to fall with Lilly's new collection featuring pinks and coral, paired with rich chocolate, deep navy and pure white.

Maybe fall wouldn't seem so bad if I could sport one of these fun new dresses to a cocktail party...

Check out the jeweled embellishment on this beauty! And how about those sassy, super-high open-toed heels?
