You would think for someone who loves fashion as much as I do, I would be in hog heaven during the film and television award show season. But no. It is boring. So, I love this little piece E! Online did about Amal Clooney at her first awards show. Love. It.

Did you know that Lilly Pulitzer opened a juice stand just off Worth Avenue in Palm Beach? And the reason she designed her first dress was because while working at the juice stand, she found that squeezing juice made a mess of her clothes. In order to hide the juice stains, she designed a sleeveless shift dress made of bright, colorful printed cotton. She found that customers loved her dress, so she produced more in order to sell them at her juice stand. (Wikipedia) And now Lilly Pulitzer will be sold at Target.
