Lilly Print Event at C.Orrico

I had the most wonderful time painting at C.Orrico in Palm Beach last weekend.  All of the Orrico sisters are so much fun and had a keg and hot dogs grilling for customers all day.  The Lilly lovers I met were amazing and told me all about their prized pieces.  Lilly Pulitzer dropped by which was of course a highlight.  Torie and I painted from 11 am to 7:30pm...we went through at least 50 paintings! Stay tuned for the next print event...The Martha Stewart Show!!

Post Cards

I think this painting is so charming.  My Aunt Heidi sent me a post card of it from the Toledo Museum of Art.  It's titled "After the Meeting" and is by Cecilia Beaux.  Heidi is so cute, she wrote "Somehow I like the combo of this chintzy chair and black stripe!" I totally agree with her!

If i designed outerwear...

Every once in a while I wish I was a fashion designer, mostly so I could design things for myself and then go back to painting and designing prints.  I wish someone could make the above cape for me in navy blue cashmere...

A snowy morning in Rittenhouse Square...

It was so nice to walk through the park covered in snow the other morning.  I love that there was already a snowman made at 8 am.

My sister Shaw is getting married this year and I couldn't be happier for her and Will!  Here is the save the date card that I illustrated for them.   

The Philadelphia Story

Have you seen "The Philadelphia Story?" I watched this movie when I first moved to Philadelphia and fell in love with it.  It's beautiful to watch and has the most amazing cast.

being a lilly lover...

In front of one of my favorite shops, I could spend hours in here...

Shopping on Worth Ave.

In Lilly's "Jungle"

The Colony Hotel 

I feel so lucky to be working as a print designer for Lilly Pulitzer.  We have so much fun every day! There is no other place like "the pink palace" (how we lovingly refer to the office which is in fact pink).  One of my favorite parts about my job is going on inspiration trips to Palm Beach.  Above are pictures from our last trip.  I will be going down again next week to paint for an event at C. Orrico on Valentine's Day!
