{Lilly's birthday brunch}

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook then you may have heard that I was excited to attend Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau's 80th birthday brunch (benefiting The Museum of Lifestyle and Fashion History) this weekend.  We had a colorful table of ladies including fellow bloggers Jennifer from Southern Living: Preppy Style and Amy from Forever 29.  It was somewhat of a blogger convention (!!!)... and we also enjoyed meeting Bethany from Maryland Pink and Green, Wendy from Life is Better with a Twist of Lime, Ashley of Ashley Brooke Designs, & Kiehl James Patrick!

I love your braces! I had mine off just a few years ago and never regretted a minute of having braces as an adult (versus as a teenager).

I also just saw a new line of handbags that Lilly designed with my sorority print on it - Kappa Alpha Theta. It's gorgeous. Even though I'm now alumnae status - I will definitely carry it around.

The top of the zipper of the Croco embossed leather bags keeps your items safe, even if you throw the Chain strap shoulder bag around distractedly.
