Hello-Hello, and happy almost-the-end-of-the-week!
We begin with a look at the new Lilly Pulitzer Sorority line debuting this fall, including prints for Kappa Delta, shown below in pink and green.
The Collection was revealed this week on the Lilly Facebook page; pieces in each print include a Tote, Carry On bag, Makeup Bag and Pencil case, along with a new wallet style. Here are designs for two other sororities included in the collection, Kappa Kappa Gamma (L) and Delta Zeta (R).
We know TQM (the Queen Mother) will be partial to the fourth print in the series, recognizing the Tri-Delts.
Each sorority pattern is also offered in the wildly popular Murfee scarf, sure to be a hit at these four sorority houses! Prices range from $28 to $148 for the collection.
We know many of our treasured readers and friends are looking forward to fall and new fashions; we have to admit we’re just not there yet, perhaps our 100° temperatures are keeping us on the summer trends.
At any rate, the season will change and we have an early look at two lines, beginning with a few ensembles from J. Crew. Below we show the Honey Tweed Jacket, Leigh Chiffon Cardigan and Cropped Ripstop Cargo Pant.
Next, the Alpaca Cardigan, Sequin Tee and Cotton Skirt are seen on the left and on the right, the Wool Minnie Pant and Herringbone Work Shirt.
Here is the Ikat Bustier Dress and Brompton Satchel (L), and the Hooded Nomad Jacket, Sequin-Strip Tank and Vintage Matchstick Cord.
Hmmm. We would have to say that just about everything we see at this point is NFU. (Not For Us.)
We also have an early look at some of the Talbots pieces for fall,
Several party frocks are featured, this one in black lace.
Here are more looks from the new catalog. (Note to Miss LPC, the ensemble on the right somehow shouts your name.)
As with J. Crew, the silhouette is slim.
The platform pump remains fashionable, as does the bootie.
Welcome spots of color are seen throughout the collection.
And chunky, statement accessories retain their popularity.
Classic pieces are also visible within the collection.
According to a WWD story, here is some of what to expect for the Holiday season:
“Strong outerwear and feminine details were the message at Talbots. The collection featured coats for every occasion, from tailored day looks to satin evening styles, as well as faux fur and puffer looks.”
We aren’t sure about the lumberjack look on the right, but there is definitely a younger feel to the catalog.
We leave you with this image, as Tilly seems to exemplify how we are feeling heading into the weekend!
Hope yours is fab!
