Obetchuary: Lilly Pulitzer

Yesterday the world said goodbye to one of the best dressed betches in American history, Lilly Pulitzer. In honor of the crowned Queen of Prep's life we write this obetchuary in her memory.

Lilly Pulitzer was a New York City socialite who went to Chapin and married the grandson of the bro that founded the Pulitzer Prize (ever heard of it?). She went to Miss Porter's prep school where she earned her degree in marrying rich and #36 not doing work. After getting married she started designing dresses because she was probably #137 bored. Throughout the 1960s to the early 1980s, her bright, colorful clothes were donned by distinguished and classy betches like the Kennedys, Vanderbilts and Rockefellers.

By 1984 Lilly was #82 over it and decided to quit and chill. But everyone missed her shit so much that in 1993 they brought back her dresses to the one percent. TG because without her sorority girls around the nation would have fewer ways to show fellow rushees that they are both better than them and super WASPy without even speaking. So RIP Lilly thanks for the fashion. Without you the New York Times could never showcase an article about how to succeed in rush by trying way too hard.
