Vintage 40s Dresses

K. I'm not sure what the deal is, but I've actually been FINDING '40s dresses, in actual thrift shops I frequent, that I can actually buy. It's surreal. There are times and seasons in this vintage world where what I'm looking for becomes extremely hard to find. Out of reach. Elusive.  I seriously have to contend with my heart whether or not I can handle never finding another 40s dress, and if I'm okay with it. Of course, I am. I have to be.

Vintage Hawaiian │ End of Summer

I love vintage Hawaiian like I love coffee. A lot. And you know what's so awesome about getting invited to luau-themed party and having all this vintage Hawaiian to wear? GETTING to wear it! Guess who got invited? Yep. As did the rest of my family. And I am able to dress them accordingly from my personal collection and some from what's currently for sale in my shop. Now, you don't need a luau to wear these gorgeous things. Everyone loves Hawaii everywhere. But, it sure does help to have a party to go to! Need some aloha in your life at the end of your summer? Want to throw an awesome luau but want a little something for you to wear to it? Get it here! ◄ (mens or womens) I seriously love vintage Hawaiian, I stock and sell vintage Hawaiian like you wouldn't believe (it's easier to find here on the West Coast) and I wear it. Now, get yourself a Mai-tai, peruse my shop for your perfect vintage Hawaiian, and say aloha to the end of summer. M
