Last month my friend Kate invited me to be part of her first annual Lilly Pulitzer fashion show and to say I was honored is an understatement. As a big Lilly fan and lover of everything bright hued and pattern-covered I immediately jumped at the fun opportunity to hang out with some of my favorite Cleveland ladies, get all dolled up and decked out in Ms. Pulitzer and hang out in Kate’s truly “Lovely” store for the evening.
At Lovely Paperie & Gifts they have a complete in-store boutique filled with all things Lilly Pulitzer. From party maxi dresses to work appropriate shirt dresses…from silk blouses to weekend workout clothes…from dresses for your kiddos to tunics for your mom; Lovely is your west side Lilly destination!
Thanks to all of my gal pals who stopped in for the evening of fashion fun. I love the photo of me and Shibani Faehnle (above) captured by the talented photographer Kailey Marie of Kailey Marie Photography. Also, thanks to Mr. C for surprising me and stopping by with NinjaM for the after-party!

Thanks again Kate and her team of helpers that made the entire evening a big success. You made all of us feel beautiful as we showed off your amazing collection of Lilly Pulitzer fashions. If you are feeling like a pop of color in your summer wardrobe make sure to go see Kate and she will help you find just the perfect shade of Lilly for you! Happy shopping, happy Lilly everyone!
Good morning CLE! Hope everyone is having a great day returning from a long holiday weekend. Yesterday was a bit rough getting back to business but I have a feeling today is going to way better, so many fun projects on the horizon.
This morning I was up early trying to get caught up on all of my contests and giveaways and I want to congratulate those of you who won Tri-C Jazz Fest tickets and the $50 gift certificates to Door 2 Door Organics. Lots of good stuff happening here in my little blog world….including today’s treat!
Today I want to introduce you to a cool creative partnership between four Cleveland designers and illustrators in the form of a temporary tattoo set called the “Tattoo Collective.” Artwork from Seaworthi, Shore Society, Patu Phan and Fizz Creative make up this stylish, Lake Erie love set of temporary tattoos. These “tats” would make the perfect summer accessory with any sundress or chic summer shorts…time to show some skin and get your (temp) tat on CLE this summer. …read on…
The fun news is, I have three sets that I am giving away to my readers, this week! To enter just tweet me “@iheartclev I’d love to win a pack of the #tattoocollective temp tattoos” winners will be drawn at random by the end of the week. In case you don’t win, you can find the set on Etsy here or at the is weekend’s Cleveland FLEA! Good luck and happy tattoos to you!
I was provided three sets of tattoos to giveaway on iheartcleveland.com as part of the collectives public relations efforts. Thanks for supporting these creatives that allows me to create special content like this for iheartcleveland!
