STILL STUCK IN THE EIGHTIES IN HAWAII – NOT A BAD PLACE TO BE!

Here’s a favorite dress of mine that I haven’t shown before because, as a lover of real-deal classic clothing, it’s hard for me to think of something made in the 1980’s as true vintage. But, this piece is by Hilo Hattie and has a design feature which is reminiscent of the 1940’s and 1950’s. Though you can’t see it in this picture, there is a triangular panel that folds across in front of the hips and ties on the left.. This gives the dress an added fit advantage. Back in the day, tricks of style were done like this often and made dresses uniquely attractive.

Otherwise, the cut is a straight shift that pulls on over the head. Very easy to wear, cool and bright, so still collectible.
