A really neat story: The shift dress became really popular because of Lily Pulitzer – a socialite during the 50’s. After eloping with her hubby, they moved to Palm Beach where she opened a fruit stand. To disguise to juice stains on her clothes she had a sleeveless dress made from a colorful print and the rest is history. Lily’s old schoolmate Jackie Kennedy wore one of her dresses while being photographed as the First Lady and a craze was born!
Tolumide models for us two different shift dresses (this one her hubby purchased for her from NEXT in London with shoes from ZARA in Madrid). Notice the burgundy tights! Burgundy-hued hair! Burgundy lips! Winter wine:)

I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
