Lilla P- Tailored for a Casual Lifestyle

Whenever a clothing company approaches me to work with them I feel like Sally Fields "You like me, you really like me!". Sometimes the collaboration doesn't work, and then there are times when everything is seamless...introducing Lilla P.

In 1998 the line started as a collection of essential tees and then expanded to include jackets, lightweight sweaters, dresses and skirts. Lilla P is a collection "that is perfectly tailored for a casual lifestyle". That doesn't mean over sized tees in boring colours, but a collection of separates that are both flattering and functional. It's all about clean lines, great fabrics and the perfect fit. It's like they were reading my mind...

The company graciously gifted me one of their best sellers The Long Sleeve Origami Wrap in Emerald Green - Emerald Green is the Pantone colour of 2013. Love it when I'm ahead of a trend.

The Origami Wrap can be styled at least 13 ways. I've decided to create and model "The Classic".

One of my favourite combinations is Emerald Green and leopard. Once I saw this wrap I knew how I was going to style this look.

Just moving the ruching so it is...


Lilla P uses 100% Pima cotton which keeps its shape and colour wash after wash. While I am new to the line, my friends at Carriage Trade carry Lilla P. and they can vouch for the quality of the pieces. Kathleen has several Lilla P tees in a variety of colours and vouches for their quality. She loves to use them as layering pieces or for casual days about town.

I took a page out of Kathleen's book and paired it with this faux fur vest and belt. 

Now for some exciting news...Lilla P is graciously giving one of my readers a $100 gift card to shop their line! This giveaway is open to my US and Canadian readers only.
