You can imagine my excitement when I got an email informing me to check out Lilly’s latest dress, the Ashley Dress. Unfortunately, I will not be wearing this dress. Haha. It’s not exactly my favorite design, and it looks like a bit too much Lilly fabric for my taste. No offense if you like it. But one thing I must say I DO like, is the description: “As she swept down the long grass lawn the party came to a hush. NOTHING says summer like a long strapless Lilly dripping in color and print.” Sounds fun, doesn’t it, except maybe without the lace?
Now, on to the Lilly dresses that have caught my eye lately. Which one do you like best? #1, #2, or #3
Oh, and sorry to disappoint some of you, but I actually returned the two pairs of Miss Trish sandals from Target, that I ordered about a week ago, and blogged about here. I really loved them both; they fit well and looked so cute, but I decided to order a pair of Bonanno’s instead. I only have Jack Rogers sandals in neutral colors, so when I found out about the great deal this week, $20 off, I knew I needed to order a fun, colorful pair that I’ll probably wear more often than the Target sandals, and will hopefully last longer too.
Because of the high volume during the annual sale, my sandals won’t be ready for 15 weeks! They’ll be worth the wait for sure. At that point, I’ll probably have forgotten I’d even ordered them, and they’ll be a great summer surprise. Cheers! Oh yeah, I was racking my brain trying to decide what color combination to go with. So naturally, and with a little help from Beth Dunn‘s personal opinion, I chose a Lilly green base (citrus) with a Lilly pink whipstitch (arbutus). Oh, and if you haven’t read her book, you should, Social Climbers. It’s available on Kindle now too. So genius! Gotta love her tag line at the end of each blog post too: Collars Up!
