"Style isn't just about what you wear, it's about how you live,"

- Lilly Pulitzer (2004)

Lilly Pulitzer passed away yesterday at the grand old age of 81. She was one woman who did what she loved, and in doing so, loved doing it. She was known to entertain bare-footed, and was never afraid of getting a little messy, she started her company quite by accident - asking her seamstress to create colourful shift dresses that masked the stains she attained from squeezing orange juice all day. Quite the role model, if you ask me. Rest in peace, Ms. Pulitzer.
