Summer of the Muumuu!

Aloha Poodles!!


Check out this amazing dress I found at the local Goodwill for a mere $4! 


My family said it was hideous. My friend said, "it may be vintage, but it's ugly." And Husband just rolled his eyes.


They couldn't see the potential Poodles! But I knew this dress would instantly transport me to 1960's Hawaii. I could see the palm trees, hear the ocean waves, and feel the warmth of the sand beneath my toes. 


So I brought it home, gave it a good wash, slipped it on, and slipped away. Soon I was sippin' on a tropical cocktail, while swaying to the sounds of Aloha Oe


It's my Summer of the Muumuu! Have a vacation with a dress!!

  1. Hee-hee! I love it and it's not hideous at all! You're a doll to pose so!

    I remember my mom wearing a sleeveless muumuu in the early 70's. She wore it on the hottest of days and even swam in it once. It billowed all up and out and we all laughed so much!! ♥

    1. Hahaha! You really don't! ;) It has an empire waist which helps give it definition; and I knew that square neckline would work well with my chestage issues!

  4. Way to see the potential and rock it something fierce! You look so immensely pretty, summery and like you could have just hopped out of a 1960s Hawaiian beach party movie. Awesome find - and such a great deal to boot!
