eVintage Blog Tag - Tropical Tease!

Its Blog Tag Wednesday at the eVintage Society and we've been tagged by Ang at Vintage or Bust! Summer is the perfect time to take a holiday to a tropical locale! Meanwhile, wearing Hawaiian and exotic prints in vintage can tide you over til you can afford that plane ticket. Let’s get tropical!

1) Show us your favorite Hawaiian or tropical print in your inventory!

I am totally in love with this vintage 60's Hawaiian mini dress! The ultra vivid colors and ruffle cap sleeves and hem are just too sweet.

2)Favorite era for Hawaiian? 40’s exotic gowns, 50s bombshell sarongs, 60s printed shifts or 70’s Hawaiian halter maxis?

Being a bodacious babe; I prefer the 50's curve hugging bombshell sarongs.

3)Favorite exotic destination if money were no object?

I've always wanted to visit Belize and visiting my good pal, Sophie, in Thailand would also be a must!

4)Favorite exotic destination on a real-world budget?

Perhaps not the cheapest route, but the Florida Keys are an absolute dream.

5)Best vacation ever?

Simple camping on the Texas coast with my sweetheart!

Music Fix - Ministry

Al Jourgensen of Ministry was quite the looker back in 1983! "Revenge" from their first album has a synth-pop sound rather than the industrial sound they soon after became known for.

eVintage Blog Tag - Summer Sparkle!

Its Blog Tag Wednesday at the eVintage Society!. Ang at Vintage or Bust! says - "Its hot!! What better time of year to shimmer like the ice cubes in a vodka-lemonade? Refresh those who admire you with some summer sparkle!"

1) Show us your favorite vintage sparkling stunner in your inventory! Rhinestones, sequins, beads….show us your shimmer!

This 80's teal evening dress has TONS of sparkle and is perfect for summer evenings out with bare shoulders and a short length.

2) Rhinestones on daywear? Yes or no?

For day wear I try to keep the sparkle to a minimum, however I do LOVE my sparkles so for evening I say go all out!

3) Favorite beaded bag or jewelry in your inventory or personal collection?

I'm in need of a good beaded bag! Right now I'm in love with this gorgeous vintage 60's beaded purse from Viva Vintage Clothing.

4) Colored rhinestones or clear, which do you prefer?

I prefer clear, but I'm certainly not against any color of sparkle!

5) Cubic zirconia, costume rhinestones or REAL diamonds? Be honest!! Which will you wear?

I'm not gonna turn down diamonds, but my budget is more along the line of rhinestones.
