Godzilla Meets Mothra: Lilly Pulitzer and Martha Stewart
So Lilly Pulitzer was once an iconic High WASP brand. But as the High WASPs have splintered into subcategories, and post-modernism has entered the picture, many High WASPs might now disdain these clothes. This is unecessary. With a little irony, High WASPs can wear Lilly, even downtown. As she says, have their demure with a small side of badass.
The cheaters' way to do this is to add a motorcycle jacket, high white patent pumps, and a white Chanel watch. Anything can be post-modern if you wear a biker jacket AND white pumps. Lilly pants here are just an ironic comment.

For the advanced user, the set below combines more Lily items - the pants, the shirt, and the elephant necklace. The subtle reference to East Asia in the post-modern era brings colonialism quietly to the back of our minds. This is appropriate. The gladiator sandals are there as a signature fashion item of the 2000's, juxtaposed with the headband and other artifacts of the High WASP's former dominance.

Again, what I say is true. I am still unclear as to whether it matters.
