The name Lilly Pulitzer is synonymous with lighthearted saturated color combinations, almost to the point of garishness. The story goes, that 21 year old Lilly first began creating these brightly colored dresses in order to camouflage the juice stains from the orange and grapefruits from her juice stand.

“I designed collections around whatever struck my fancy ... fruits, vegetables, politics or peacocks,” Ms. Pulitzer told The Associated Press in 2009. “It was a total change of life for me, but it made people happy.” (nytimes.com)

This brand is not for women who'd rather fade into the background. It's commendable that after all this time, the aesthetic of the label has maintained it's characteristic nod to the 50s and 60s. It's a wonderful thing to see a beautiful, modern women evoking a past era while still sustaining a contemporary air.
