The Power of a Dress

“Pink is the color of romance and a friend tells me that the girl with the pink dress at the party is the one who is selected for each dance.”
~ Alfred Carl Hottes


There is nothing better in the world than wearing a dress. During the summer I LIVE in dresses and wear a dress or a bathing suit all summer long. It is so easy to get dressed in the morning and I feel instantly put together when I wear a dress. There's no worrying about matching pants or skirts to tops with a dress. During the winter, a dress with thick, opaque tights keeps fashionistas as warm as pants and looks great.

Lilly Pulitzer's Andover dress is my go-to dress for day during the summer. It's perfect for running errands or shopping.

The Lilly Pulitzer shift dresses are so versatile and work with almost any occasion. I wear my shifts like play clothes. They are so comfortable and keep me cool.

Paired with the right jewelry, shoes, and bag, a dress that was perfect for the day can instantly transform into a perfect cocktail dress. I feel confident in a dress. I feel powerful in a dress. I feel elegant in a dress.

During the Retrospective events that were part of Lilly Pulitzer's Jubilee celebration, I really enjoyed reading the stories that accompanied the vintage dresses on display. Each dress truly has a story. I recently saw a friend from college and we were talking about bid day for our sorority and we remembered exactly what dresses we wore on that day. It's amazing how we can remember those details years after the event. So many of my dresses have such wonderful memories with them.

Do you wear a lot of dresses? Are there any special events or days that you associate with a particular dress?
