faux real

there are knock-offs and then there are knock-offs!

i love lilly so much, and usually become very upset
when someone tries to steal her look, becuase let's face it...
1) you could NEVER really do it and
2) i want, and want muffy to have, the real deal!
i mean who could compete with this?

lilly pulitzer mini tunic

and this

mini lilly pulitzer dress

but while shopping for muffy's spring-into-summer wardrobe
(boy does that child grow fast!)
i found some very, VERY cute little lilly-look-alikes at gymboree.

the elephant flower dress from the flower bazaar collection

the elephant parade tee from the flower bazaar collection

and considering the cost, and the rate muffy is shooting up, this was a no-brainer!
i just hope it's not considered disloyal!


  1. The gymboree ones are so cute and I think they still look different from Lilly! Great finds!

  2. Muffy must be the best dressed little girl around! :)

  3. SOOOOO CUTE! I wouldn't consider them 'faux' Lilly, I think they are LILLY-INSPIRED! :) Those little elephants couldn't be any cuter if they tried. Muffy is the cutest little belle in town!

  4. I love those cute little elephants! So fun.
    P.S. Thanks for the sweet comment. You should definitely get the "dirty shirley" top. It's a favorite of mine!

  5. So nice to find you!

    Not at all disloyal - I agree with Lilly "inspired" - and as they say; imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
