The first dress is a full on house dress. I loved the threaded detailing on the front and thought it would be wearable simply by adding a belt.
Next up is a yellow linen jumpsuit. I plan on saving this for the honeymoon to Hawaii next year. It will make for a great swimsuit cover up.
I had the extremely amazing fortune of coming across a Pin Up Girl Clothing Couture black velvet dress. Brand new with the tags intact! I could not believe my luck. The lady at the store said that sometimes they get companies that will donate stock rather than let it sit if it isn't selling. I can't wait to wear this beautiful dress!
Here's yet another house dress. I love the daisy detailing and bright red color. I'm thinking this may also be another nice honeymoon outfit.
I found this Hilo Hattie at a shop in my hometown. It was a good score, considering how much Hilo Hattie shirts normally go for in the stores. I wore it to a recent Secret Samurai (fantastic surf rock) show in town. I simply didn't button the bottom three and tied it for that pinup tiki look. Sorry I don't have a picture of me wearing it to share.
I found this cute two piece nightie set. I wasn't sure if it was vintage as there were no apparent tags intact but then I found a matching set (but blue) at Playclothes in Burbank, CA recently.
I found this beauty at a thrift store in Redding, CA. I love the blue color, and the parrots, and the rainbows, and Diamond Head in the distance! I think I may plan on wearing this to Tiki Day this year!
Speaking of Tiki Day we are now just weeks away. Less than five weeks to be exact!! I hope to see some of you there this year.
I come across a lot of these Mexican styled tops. I think they used to be used in restaurants a lot. I usually find white tops but never blue.
I found this cute 70's lavender koi fish dress in Stockton, CA. It will require a full body slip as it's pretty see through but I fell in love with the print and could look past that.
This is a 90's lurex dress and I plan on having it altered and turning it into something completely different. I just loved the copper hue.
I found this 70's lurex top in Stockton, CA as well. I thought this would be too cute coupled with a pair of high waist-ed black pants and some killer heels.
I found this vintage cowgirl top in Etna, CA. It is in perfect condition. It's a small so sadly it will not fit. I do however plan on adding it to my store.
There was no way I could pass on this beauty of an apron. I have such a weakness for the chiffon ones.
July thrift blog part two to come soon as well as my weekends highlights at Tiki Oasis!
