What I bought in Palm Beach

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!
I should mention that I am neither a size 2 nor a gazelle

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

The colors are off in this picture: it's more periwinkle blue/teal//navy. Basically, all the blues.

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.

Tizzie "Rome" shirt--and hello, pasties!

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

for my makeup brushes. Because it Sparked Joy.

Big time.
