Lilly Pulitzer extraordinaireOctober 13, 2006 at 8:46 am | Posted in craft to wear, crafty to buy | 1 Comment
I adore Lilly Pulitzer — well, her vintage prints especially — and I’ve been collecting her pieces on eBay at at flea markets and vintage stores for years. I have lots of her stuff: patchwork skirts, flowered pants, scarves and a bikini, but my absolute favorites are her pretty shift dresses… and after a recent eBay score, I have a lot of her dresses, to be honest with you.
In fact, my closet is so full that I’m selling off a few! Three are up on eBay, ending later today, and I’ll be posting eight more (plus some other vintage pieces) in the next few weeks.
Here’s a peek at the ones on the auction block today, if you happen to be interested… they’re ending later tonight, so if you love them, be quick!!
The gold shift dress is so pretty, the colors are really vibrant and bold. It’s the only Lilly I’ve ever seen that I would say is truly perfect for fall. The pink and orange floor-length dress has such unusual, cool ruching detail all along the princess seams, great for Halloween! The navy dress with the bright floral pattern is made with a warmer, knit fabric instead of the typical 65/35 polyester-cotton blend — plus it’s trimmed with hot-pink and orange crocheted lace, and lined in light green cotton! And it’s tagged Neiman Marcus along with The Lilly, too.
All three dresses are about a modern size 12-14 (see the listings for all the details).
So, if you’re looking for something fun for fall (and beyond) I highly recommend adding a few Lilly dresses to your fashion rotation! If these aren’t your size, ther e are always a bunch on eBay, so just keep an eye out.
