Elizabeth Taylor wrote a book called My Love Affair with Jewelry. I could write a book called My Love Affair with Lilly.
(Sidenote: I am the girliest girl with the most low-key jewelry philosophy. My mother is a jewelry designer. It's quite the dichotomy. On an average day you can find me wearing my Cartier Love bracelet, my matching Cartier Love stud earrings, and my Cartier Pasha watch (are you sensing a pattern? TAG = BORING) with my mom standing next to me shaking her head because I'm not wearing a necklace.)
For my love affair isn't with diamonds or pearls, it's with the pink and green of the jungle queen. I live for Lilly.
I could wax poetic for days on end. How, in one way or another, it has at some point been intertwined with every aspect of my life: family, friends, career, writing, sorority, romance. How it's not just a brand, but a lifestyle. How it makes even my gloomiest days a bit brighter. The above article I read today in Quest magazine inspired me to share some of my favorite photos of life in Lilly with all of you.

The article is on page 86 of the September issue of Quest and it's all about the Madison Avenue store. If you're in the area and haven't dropped in yet, you must. I'm spending a lot of time there these days.
