Last Minute Lilly

Today I picked up this Bowen dress! I am so excited to have it to take to school with me! When I originally had seen this dress, I wasn't exactly a fan, but I LOVED it once it was on. I think that a lot of Lilly styles need to be tried on in order to get the whole picture. It's quite a short dress on me since I'm a small size. I also had to get my actual size since the dress is strapless (I tend to go up a size in shifts because they can easily be altered and then they're long enough as well. I wouldn't advise going up a size in any of the Originals shifts because they run big anyway.) so that it would fit properly throughout the whole thing. I also rarely buy anything yellow, but I really couldn't resist this dress. It's nice for daytime wear and I would definitely wear this going out too. I am so comfortable in Lilly for going out especially during the late summer months that it's a natural choice for me! A friend of mine, Amanda, always goes out in Lilly in Maryland (now she's in Edinburgh though!) and said that she felt funny if she wasn't in Lilly! I totally get that feeling now too! Anyone else grab any late summer Lilly? Any good sales?? I'd love to hear!

I wasn't a huge fan of that print either, but my daughters both have dresses in that print, so yesterday I went ahead and ordered the Shift in that print too, so I can match them. :)

Cute dress! You will get lots of good use out of that at school. I scored a new Lilly keating silk dress and a bowtie today on the RueLaLa sale. Got to love a good Lilly steal!

I actually just tried the Bowen on, too, and loved it! I thought it might be too skimpy for me in the chest but it's actually very cute and flattering. :)
