Publisher's Summary

The real story behind a very private American fashion icon - Lilly Pulitzer
Today, Lilly Pulitzer's iconic brand of clean-cut, vibrantly printed clothes called "Lillys" can be spotted everywhere. What began decades ago as a snob uniform in Palm Beach became a general fashion craze and, later, an American classic. In contrast to the high visibility of her brand, Lilly Pulitzer has largely kept her tumultuous personal story to herself. Bursting forth into glossy fame from a protected low-key world of great wealth and high society - through heartbreaks, treacheries, scandals, and losses - her life, told in detail here for the first time, is every bit as colorful and exciting as her designs.

Great story, bad narator

This is a good story. Very interesting bits about historical Palm Beach. Unfortunately, the narrator misprounces many words (and multiple times). I find this very distracting! As the key words were misprounced, it would take me out of the story and distract me. Some examples include: Bouvier (as in Jackie Bouvier Kennedy), designer Lanvin, couture, Bugatti, Mar a Lago, etc.

In addition, the story is about wealthy, educated people. The narrator sounds like a valley girl, so she doesn't lend herself to enhance the story.

Not my style

I enjoyed learning about Lilly's life but found all the name dropping and "who's who" areas boring and redundant. I wish I learned more about what made Lilly tick vs. who around her had money from what source. The narrator sounded almost fake which made my mind wonder.
