My Vintage Hawaiian Shirt

It is no surprise that my obscure and random interests sometimes bleed into my style inspiration. If you’ve stopped by this page a few times, you may be familiar with my on going world wide Tiki Tour. The thrill of finding a tiki bar untouched by the passing of time is a unicorn I am constantly chasing. Pair that with my love of vintage and naturally one would assume I collected Hawaiian shirts. This assumption would be correct. From children’s Harley Davidson Hawaiian shirts to this one I’m currently wearing, a gem by a Canadian designer Marjorie Hamilton. My vintage Hawaiian shirt collection is mostly in storage but this one managed to sneak into my main closet. Thank goodness because it was meant to be worn with these pants 🙂

Thrifting For Labels

A funny thing happens when thrifting becomes a regular habit. When I was deep into the second hand world, I would frequent stores several times a week. I even had an Etsy shop which I’m considering reopening right on this blog! (Let me know if that’s of interest to anyone). The more I went, the more I would see the same labels over and over again to the point at which I started to develop favourites. Marjorie Hamilton became one of them and this flamboyant blouse just happens to be by her. Mr Jax (not to be confused with the Vanderpump Rules icky cast member) was another favourite label I came across repeatedly. Have you ever found vintage labels you seem to gravitate towards again and again?
