Prettiest on the wall | Vintage 1960s/70s Retro mod Groovy Neon Floral painting Hawaiian Maxi Dress with pseudo cape
Vintage Hawaiian dresses are always such a dream to find, collect, stash away. But we have decided good things should be shared, and so here she is!
A strong silhouette in a strong colour, yet so delicately lined with a sense of femininity and good, honest, clean lines. A true reflection of the beauty of the Polynesian people.
This one is reminiscent of the 1950s/60s tiki bars on beaches. It kinda reminds us of the acrylic paintings of the time and perfect for dinners with high society on holiday.
We like the brilliance of the dress. But if you want to tame it down a little, you can always add a light, long coat and dark, subdued jewellery. Keep makeup light and subtle. And let the dress speak for itself. ;)
