Lilly-Chanel

Have you ever had an outfit planned for a special event only to change your mind at the last minute? I planned to wear a pink Lilly Pulitzer Jubilee Elias dress to my daughters’ First Communion. It’s a beautiful dress and I love it. Then I thought that it might be better to wear something with sleeves for the occasion, so I changed my mind. The new choice was going to be the Lilly Pulitzer Kiki dress with the matching Dandi coat.

Everything was set for the party! I went to a favorite Lilly store to pick up some pink tissue paper pom poms for decorations when I saw it.

Lilly Pulitzer goes Chanel.


The Sally dress in Cameo White boucle is elegant and classic. The ivory color is stunning and the pink piping is a perfect detail. The Idalee jacket completes the ensemble. Although the pale pink rosette pin originally was pinned at the waist of the dress, I preferred to wear mine on the jacket.


Although I had not planned by buy anything besides the tissue paper flowers, I left with a gorgeous outfit that was perfect for the occasion. This classic dress suit will be a classic for decades. It’s a deviation from the expected Lilly palette, but was a must have in my wardrobe.
