Hello-Hello, and welcome to a very busy Tuesday, we are off to a volunteer function almost all afternoon, so today’s post is brief.
Many readers may have already read or heard about last week’s big bash at the American Museum of Natural History, we’re more than a little late reporting on the festivities. If it doesn’t sound familiar, we offer a visual clue:
It was the annual spring dance, and Lilly Pulitzer sponsored the event. The party was much brighter than most black tie events, compliments of a dress code that said “Lilly or Louder”. Below, the retailer’s design director, Janie Schoenborn, wore Pandamonium.
Below, socialites Blair Husain and Sara Peters.
Below we see Tinsley Mortimer in what we’ll call “modified Lilly,” as she explained to Women’s Wear Daily:
“I shortened it to make it cuter,” said Mortimer. “I took a pair of scissors to it right before I left the house.”
Lilly pooh-bah Jim Bradbeer and his wife Carol were colorfully clad.
On the not-so-Lilly list, actress Michelle Trachtenberg (L) and model Coco Rocha.
The event’s Honorary Chair did not wear Lilly, actress Claire Danes was in Zac Posen.
One of the best parts of any function Lilly is involved with has to be having the chance to watch the amazingly talented artists from the Lilly Mother Ship in action.
Below, the über-talented Paige Smith works on a floral canvas.
It sounds like an delightful time, you can read more about it here at the Lilly blog.
Loads of bits and bytes today, here are a few quick links:
- This story hypothetically lists the “10 Preppiest Colleges,” at least according to the Huffington Post; the comments are as entertaining as the story IOHO.
- J. Crew’s design guru Jenna Lyons will be featured on tomorrow’s (Wednesday, 4/21) Oprah show; the topic is Dream Jobs. (Click here for a teeny bit more info.) Below, Ms. Lyons in her office.
- Speaking of the retailer, our friends at High Snobette report that Crew has launched its collection of Tretorn.
With that we say g’bye until next time!
