Lilly Pulitzer Party!

Thank you for sharing these details, KappaPrep!

Cupcakes and Cocktails to be served all day (the store opens at 10am so head over as early as you like). The Martha taping officially starts at 10am and takes a little over an hour. So I would say everyone coming from the show will get there closer to 11:30am. The design team should also arrive after the show as I hear they will be involved with the taping. There will be demonstrations all day with the print design team (this is NOT to be missed- I have seen their studio and these people are AMAZING!!) and numerous Lilly Pulitzer corporate team members will also be at the store to celebrate. Live it up and make it a Lilly day! After Martha we will all be inspired to acquire more Lilly and so I think it is a calling we do so in a posh location surrounded by the preps we love and trust!

Graduation Dresses!

I had to order my graduation cap and gown today, which now has gotten me thinking about graduation dresses! Unfortunately our gowns will be black, which I’m not entirely thrilled about because in high school we got to wear white and it looked much prettier. I always prefer white, especially after Memorial day. Nevertheless, my dress underneath will just have to make up for it! Cornell graduation is Memorial Day weekend, and I cannot wait for the festivities and spring weather. As cold as it is during the harsh Ithaca winters, the late springtime is always beautiful and perfect for frolicking around in sundresses! I’m really looking forward to that weekend, and from what I can tell it looks like I will be needing three daytime and two evening outfits (dresses). The dress I wear Sunday for graduation ceremony will be the most special, and for that I’m thinking about one of the Jacqueline style dresses last season. Of course, it will be a Lilly! I’ve always loved the white Jacqueline that originally started the whole Jackie trend upon its appearance in Vogue last year, and I’ve even been lucky enough to track one down. The dress is very hard to come by, but the seller is asking quite a pretty penny, so I’ll have to think long and hard about whether it might not be better to wear a dress from this year’s Jubilee collection. Around this same time last spring, my brother was graduating from high school, and I loved wearing Jacqueline Lillys to his events because they were quite versatile and a fresh twist on classic, which is exactly my style. Here are some pictures from Justin’s graduation, and I’m also posting some Lilly dresses I didn’t buy last year but still love and now am considering for my upcoming events. Which are your favorites?
