Palm Beach is an amazing shopping destination, if you're in the market for estate jewelry, Stubbs & Wootton embroidered slippers, incredibly expensive place settings, colorful resort wear, Chinoiserie, rock crystal lamps, walkers, huge expensive paintings, and showy exemplars of the good life, American resort style. I like all of that ... within reason. Except for walkers, I guess.
So anyway, I did a little damage.
At C. Orrico, I bought a Lilly Pulitzer Veranda Tunic dress in Breakwater Blue Underwater Escape
|$158, marked down 1/3--yay!|
so the fit is slightly different on me. As in, I'm not showing nearly as much leg. But notice how the shape of the dress suggests a waist? It's some sort of knit, so it flows nicely and doesn't give have that upside-down flowerpot cut so typical of Lilly dresses.
The same can be said of this Barbara Gerwit tunic

which made of a lovely flowing fabric with soutache embroidery. It doesn't look nearly as nice in this photograph, but it's the only one I could find. This tunic is amazing with white jeans and last year's turquoise J. Crew ballerina slippers.
I also got a Tizzie Rome shirt, a line that is new to me

This is the shirt I really wanted, but they didn't have it in my size. And in the smaller size, the ginger jars ended up doing me No Favors. At all.

Notice the grosgrain ribbon backing up the buttons--love it!
You might be wondering--where's the beauty? Well, I also picked up a Dana Gibson "Canton" hand-painted tole pencil cup
