Integrating Americana and traditional tea party aesthetics always seems to work flawlessly, for me, for exciting my sartorial neurons, poised and anxious, waiting for the calculated click of an online purchase and the dreaded anticipation of the always too long shipping period. Red, white, and blue surely evokes a deep sense of patriotism, but also a sense of ideal chromatic balance. I spent a good portion of my morning iced coffee perusing the sale wares on Piperlime, a bit flooded with the sheer volume of skirts and dresses, maxi and pencil and shift and tunic, numb, ignoring the various requests of productivity on my time. These two Milly dresses are magnificent, simple and yet engaging in their geometry, and are also, naturally, wonderfully beyond my current price range. If I had more croquet and cocktail parties on my impending social calendar, then, perhaps, I could justify.
