Hey y’all, today I’m going to be sharing with y’all my experience shopping for formal dresses at Lilly Pulitzer. My formal is this Friday and I’m really excited! Last week I went to the Lilly Pulitzer store on Newbury Street in Boston to find a dress. It was really hard to narrow my purchase to one dress because honestly I loved everything in the store. Hopefully, y’all can see my thought process when shopping and see some new Lilly pieces in the process.
I loved this dress so much! I liked the subtle v neck and the mix of the print with the design at the hem. I thought the cut of this dress is extremely flattering too! I ultimately didn’t end up buying this dress but I think I definitely will during the next After Party Sale.
I really thought I was going to like this dress because of the pattern and I have liked the Mila Shift in the past. I did not think this dress was flattering at all, I felt like it really hung off my body in a weird way.
I felt the same about this dress as the first one in terms of fit, however the print wasn’t for me. When I shop at Lilly, I tend to lean towards more pink toned prints as opposed to this blue one.
I wanted this romper to look good on me SO badly. I love this print but something about the pattern down the middle makes the romper look like a shirt on me I think. I was very stoked about the fact that this is a romper that looks like a dress too.
Like the last item, I really wanted to love this dress. I love the lace detailing and the bird print. As with the last one, I feel like the front detailing made the dress look more like a top on me. I also, once more, did not like how a blue print looked.
I am so excited about this romper! I think the print is super cute and I like that it it has shorts attached. I think it’s going to be so much fun to dance in. Also, because it’s a romper, it’s very versatile and I think I’ll be wearing it all summer long.
I hope y’all enjoyed seeing my thought process while shopping for formal. I honestly loved all of these dresses and I wish I could have everything from Lilly. That being said, their dresses are pretty pricy so I wanted to make sure I was getting something I really loved with my money
