Lilly Pulitzer Palmetto Dress Review

Earlier this week, I shared my review for some of my favorite items from the Spring 2015 Lilly Pulitzer collection. Today, I'm reviewing the Palmetto Dress in the In the Vias print. This dress is incredibly versatile and is a three season dress. I can see myself wearing this through spring and again in the fall. The navy color makes it a perfect option as a transition piece.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I sized up to a medium in this because it fit better in the arms and was not tight in the hips, which tend to be my problem area. The dress is generously sized in the bust, so I noticed a little bit of extra fabric and decided to wear the Palmetto dress with a belt. The colors in the Emmett peacock belt complimented the print so well and the wide width of the belt accented my waist nicely, cinching up the bust and waist area.

The dress is a moderate length and is not too short, even with the waist cinched, although I'm only 5'4".

Last night was an amazing debut performance of Legally Blonde. The entire cast and crew did a wonderful job, the audience gave the most oooohs and ahhhhs to the two dogs who were in the show. Bruiser Woods barked on cue when he first appeared on stage. Here I am with my "grand-dog," wearing Lilly Pulitzer as Elle Woods' mother.

The character of Paulette also worked with a dog during the production. Isn't this girl sweet?

We have another performance tonight and two performances on Saturday. Of course, as luck would have it, I woke up without a voice, so I'm already nursing it with hot chamomile tea.

Have a fantastic start to the weekend.



  1. Love the bulldog, Bethany!! Yours is cute, too.
