Preppy Surcingle Belt

Preppy Surcingle Belt

I was checking out the Salmon Cove website and came across to this wonderful surcingle belt. Perfect timing with the warm weather here, which means for us preppy gentlemen it’s that time for us to tuck in our polo and button down shirts in our pants and show off our belts. This hand-stitched needlepoint belt is embroidered with Salmon Cove logo on a blue back ground.Get them here

Fashion Designer Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau Dies At 81

Lilly Pulitzer Preppy

One Sunday, April 7, 2012 we lost a great designer in the preppy fashion. Lillian Bostwick Phipps Pulitzer Rousseau simply also known as Lilly Pulitzer died in her Palm Beach home.Lilly Pulitzer was 81 years old. Lilly was a role model to me because it made appreciated more color in my wardrobe. If anybody seen my instagram or know me personally know I usually have a lot of colors mixed in. In my own words I think of Lilly Pulitzer as a fun, classic and nonchalant style will live forever as it’s a style, women of all ages can relate and wear. She said it the best, "Style isn’t just about what you wear, it’s about how you live”.
