“The Lilly girl is always full of surprises…she lives every day like it’s a celebration, never has a dull moment, and makes every hour a happy hour."
My previous Lilly Pulitzer posts have been some of my most popular to date. Her designs are so bright and colorful, and just make you feel happy wearing them! Lilly Pulitzer was an American socialite and fashion designer, who began her empire in 1959, while operating her own fruit juice stand. She designed a little cotton shift dress, to hide the juice stains she acquired from working at her juice stand. The iconic designer became a sensation in the 1960's, and was known as the princess of prints, for her colorful, vibrant, and floral shift dresses. Lilly lived in the resort town of Palm Beach, Florida, where she created dresses to suit her needs. Pulitzer believed that colors affected peoples moods, and the more candy-colored and vibrant, the happier people would be. Her signature designs were inspired by her town of Palm Beach and the colors of a Florida vacation. Lilly passed away at the age of 81, in April of 2013. Her legacy continues on with fabulous brightly colored tropical prints and florals that depict an effortless and fun lifestyle. Above is the Lilly Pulitzer Alanna Off the Shoulder Dress shown in the Pink Pout Too Much Bubbly print. The dress is a flowy off the shoulder dress with belle sleeves. A perfect dress for vacation or a fun day spent out in the sun. Check out more Lilly Pulitzer fab finds below. Simply click on the image or the description below for more details! Enjoy!
