Hong Kong





I recently traveled to Hong Kong to meet some of Lilly's vendors and visit a few printing mills.  Hong Kong is such an amazing city, there is so much to explore.  I think I just skimmed the surface with the two free days I had to wander the city.

Blaring Sirens



Blaring Sirens is one of my new prints for the Lilly Pulitzer Resort 2011 line.  These are not sweet mermaids, they are sassy sirens, wear them with attitude!

Muzzy


I recently lost my lovely grandmother Jeune Ruen (Muzzy). I feel the need to write about her because her style has had such a large influence on me. Muzzy was inherently chic, she wore hot pink lipstick, ivory jewelry and a bracelet with a jade elephant charm. Whenever we visited Muzzy there were jars filled with sweets and we would drink shirley temples with lots of maraschino cherries. She loved Frank Sinatra, especially "My Funny Valentine." She enjoyed watching her birds in her backyard, gardening, playing bridge and reading. When my sister and I were in College, we would drive to Palm Beach for the weekends and Muzzy would take us to Cafe L'Europe for champagne filled lunches. She collected beautiful artwork and drove a pink Cadillac in the 60's. Her hair was the prettiest shade of white, I used to think it looked like ice cream. She bought me my first Lilly Pulitzer dress and is probably one of the reasons I work there now. She was very honest, sometimes too honest, which we always laughed about. She loved parties and entertaining, a skill she passed down to all of her daughters. Mostly, Muzzy wanted to please her family and make everything beautiful, and she always did.

The illustration above is a collection of some of Muzzy's favorite things. The photo above is from my last visit with Muzzy in Palm Beach

We recently did sorority collections at Lilly Pulitzer. I did the Kappa Kappa Gamma print shown above in the sorority colors with keys, iris's and owls. I wasn't in a sorority but my sister Shaw was a kkg!

Lilly Pulitzer Madison Avenue Toile Makeover

I spent the last week painting a New York toile in the Lilly Pulitzer Madison Avenue shop. An entire hallway, three dressing rooms and a bathroom are now covered in pink scenes from NYC.
