Lilly...with a Twist! Mardi Gras time!



Lilly still couldn't think of him as Brian. Somehow in her mind she kept calling him Edgy Guy. Hard to stop, given that she still wasn't sure if they were dating or not. Sure, they hung out. Sure, she realized as she thought about it that they had somehow wound up seeing each other almost every weekend since Sissy's wedding. And, yes, OK, some kissing had happened. But she just wasn't sure. The texting seemed accidental. Phone calls were almost non-existent. All the contact, exciting, fun, and different as it was, just didn't seem to be on purpose.

She wanted to know. Did he like her? As in, like her? Did she make his heart beat faster? Even a little bit?

Mardi Gras party time. Always fun, with her group of friends. Even the married ones seemed to get 5 years younger at Mardi Gras parties. Lilly looked forward to it. And to wearing her new pink Adelson shift with the gold lace. "Ha!" she thought, "It'll coordinate with my beads!" She decided to get daring. Added the Lilly Patent Croc wedges. In pink, of course. Piled on the beads, intertwined with a Murfee scarf for inimitable style. She looked in the mirror. Thought long and hard. And raised the feathered mask to her face. "Why not? she thought. "Why the heck not?"

Midnight. Face to face. Masks on. Does she have the courage? Can she ask him? "Do I make your heart beat faster?" Masks off. "Just for tonight, yes."

Special thanks to Lisa from Privilege for another STELLAR "Lilly...with a Twist!"!!!

  5. Patsy, hahahahaha. I hope Lilly doesn't whisper in my ear that this is that kind of a dark secret! I'm hoping it's more benign:).

  6. But I will have Lilly ask him, next time, just what is this secret? Good idea.

  7. Searching for "vintage" lilly men's - I found this post and as a New Orleans boy would rock a real lilly print of masks and feathers and beads. Throw a fleur de lis in for good measure and color it all purple green and yellow.

    Riding the Saints wagon these would be amazing.

  9. I'm happy Lilly is in a dress. (None of that shirt lifting for beads will be done) Now you've got me wanting that dress.

  10. Sher, if we can interest YOU in Lilly we are doing our job right. We might just have to do Lilly watches all the Lord of the Rings DVDs in one night. Everyone has a secret passion, right?
