We had lots of fun at Tiki Oasis — for me, mostly because I got to play dress up! I can’t help it — I blame Mad Men. I am suddenly all about the 1960s right now. I’ve decided I love eras with big crazy hair — 1770s-80s, 1870s, and suddenly the 1960s is fitting that bill. Plus, I’m having the fun of playing dress up without having to wear 10,000 pounds of clothes. I know! I’m sorry! It’ll pass!
Here’s the blouse and skirt I made from a vintage pattern and some fabulous rayon donated by Sewphisticate, who heard my plea for something non-cheesy/non-modern and just whipped this out of her stash… as well as the 1950s tropical sundress and bolero that I paid way too much money for — but was inordinately happy about — at the Art Deco Society vintage sale.
