This is the year for women being bold, fierce and standing up for each other. Today I am lifting up my fierce friend Pauline Nakios, founder, designer and the vision behind the brand Lilla P, who is celebrating 20 years. In the rag business that is definitely a milestone. I have seen so many that rise to the top really fast, but end up crashing because they didn’t manage their growth or keep up with the ever changing wants and needs of their customers. I love how Pauline started slow and small as a t-shirt company, but over these 20 years has carefully built a strong brand that has now expanded into other lifestyle looks with dresses, pants, jackets and skirts, all created for comfort as well as style to fit your every day lives.
I will tell you that when I owned my boutique in Montrose, Colorado, Lilla P was a staple in my store. My customers loved the feel and fit of the Lilla P t-shirt. Now, Pauline has branched out by bringing in other fabrics offering more options for your casual lifestyle. For example, the top that I am wearing in the top 2 photos, is made of a nep terry. It is sooooo soft and also comes in a a heather charcoal color. I could sleep in this top, so that being said, it would be perfect for travel be in a car or plane.
Now, think a little more elevated lux look with the light pink sweater dress that I am wearing below. I am tall, so the dress was a little shorter than I was comfortable wearing, so I belted it and added the black legging. Depending on your comfort level, black opaque or textured tights would also work. An over the knee boot with a black leather moto jacket would really make a statement.
So, as you can see, Lilla P is not just any old t shirt company, it is sophisticated staples full of subtle detail and pared down luxury.
