Where Did Lilly Go?

OK so I like these three dresses from the newest Lilly Pulitzer collection.  Like being the key word.  And I do like them.  But I am sad to say that yet again there is nothing I LOVE from Lilly Pulitzer.  Second collection in a row that feel so much more trendy than classic Lilly to me.  What the heck is going on at the Pink Palace?  Did they change designers?  Not happy about this change to more trendy mainstream fashions.  I shop Lilly because they are so distinctive and striking and well, Lilly.  If I wanted the stuff they are selling this season, I would go to Talbots or Ann Taylor. 








Has anyone found any fabulous pieces this season?  Maybe I need to see them in person but as far as what I have seen online...blah!  I just don't feel Lilly in many of the current designs.



Edit:  I said this in the comment section but will say it here too just to clarify. 

Ok y'all, I said I do actually like these dresses.  But overall, I think the collection this season (with the long drapy sweaters and shiny fabrics and odd non-Lilly prints) is more trendy than classic.  And again, just my opinion.  We don't all need to love the same dresses to be friends!

I SO SO SO agree with you! I haven't bought any Lilly clothing in forever...

I'm glad someone else feels the same way! These are cute but they are too trendy for Lilly, which is supposed to be timeless!! Also none of these designs scream fall or winter to me, and I am not in the mood to shop for spring or summer yet.

Actually, I wouldn't consider these trendy. Yes they are not the typical print and cut of a Lilly dress, but they do have classic timeless elements to them. The cut of the first two are reminiscent of the dresses often seen in the 60's,think Samantha in Bewitched. The sheath cut of the last one never goes out of style. I may be one of the few who likes these, particularly the first one.

I agree. I visited a Lilly store last weekend and walked out with only a dress for for my daughter. Nothing for me. : (

I completely agree with you that everyone has their own taste and opinions on anything and everything. Like we can all LOVE Lilly, but don't have to love every single piece of Lilly that comes out. I mean I'm a big fan of the styles out right now, but I don't necessarily like the Resort that just came out. I think you're entitled to your opinion, it is your blog after all, right?

Happy Halloween!

I agree with you. I wish they would stick with the shifts and the more classic lines. : ) <3 your blog by the way.
