So a few weeks ago I got the ‘frequent Lilly shopper’ catalog – in newspaper format -and I am sure several of you all did as well. I got mine probably on about the 16th of Feb as it was just before I left for President’s Day long weekend in Baltimore. I often get things about three days later than most people… since I live in the boonies!
“Lilly in Bloom” contained a colorful kaleidoscope of patterns and colors – and I loved the patterns. However, as I commented on some recent blog posters about the Spring 2012 LP collection, I just cannot wear dresses so SHORT to work! Unbelievably short shifts this year!
Patterns I love:
–resort white lavish lillys placed
–turquoise wrapping stripe
–resort white mini spring fever toile
–prep green pink twinkle
–starfruit yellow day lilly
Styles I love:
Blossom dress, style no. 27946:
[in resort white lavish lillys placed for $198]
[in turquoise wrapping stripe for $288]
Buttercup short, style no. 28588:
[in resort white mini spring fever for $68]
Amberly dress, style no. 26873:
[in prep green pink twinkle for $228]
Hayes skirt, style no. 31718:
[shown in resort white spring fever toile, but I like it more in starfruit yellow day lilly for $128]
This dress was not in the catalog – but I like it a lot!
Cherry dress, style no. 26316:
[in prep green pink twinkle for $268]
The only thing is – if I don’t get any of these Lilly’s due to length, what am I going to wear for Easter, Virginia Gold Cup, Foxfield, Carolina Cup, Preakness, Middleburg Spring Races, Strawberry Hill, Grand National Steeplechase [just to name a “few”]? I will have to go with Shoshanna, Tibi, Trina Turk, Kate Spade or Milly I guess. I will keep you guys posted on what I discover! I need to see these dresses in person and see if the hem can be lowered on any. I hope they have an extra 2-3″ to spare!
