Seriously, I immediately feel better when I just look at her prints. They are vibrant, preppy, southern, and all around GORGEOUS. I was introduced to this amazing brand about 4 years ago when I walked into a Boutique on vacation in Florida. I saw this gorgeous pink beaded tunic (Newbury tunic) that I just HAD to try on. Of course I did without looking at the price tag, and immediately fell in love. After looking at the tag I realized I would never be able to afford a tunic for $278, unless I wanted to spend all my savings on a cute top. If my mom hadn't been there at the time, I probably would have done so, and now that I look back at it, I wish I had. This is still one of my FAVORITE pieces of clothing that I have tried on. I have yet to see it on eBay or any other of my Lilly selling/trading sights since. Sad day. If I ever see it in my size for sale, I will definitely be snatching it up -- it is definitely one of my Holy Grails! It's my first true piece I fell in love with. Lilly Love at first sight :)

Of course I did not find out my real love for lilly until later on in college. Being in a sorority, (Kappa Delta) I slowly became more and more aware of how popular and cute this brand was. I first started out just searching items online, until I finally splurged and bought my first Lilly Dress off eBay. This was the beginning of a new lifestyle. My first ever Lilly dress was the Ricci in Shell Yeah. At the time, I had no idea that different styles of the dresses had names and I could care less about the prints name. All I cared about was how cute it was! I wore it to my Sophomore Bid Day for my sorority and to Keeneland. I got so many compliments and from that point on knew that my life had been forever changed by a beautiful designer name, Lilly Pulitzer. What was your first piece of Lilly? How long have you been a Lilly Lover?
