Bananarama

As it turns out, I really love kitschy prints.  Like the one on this dress:



Why, yes, those are bananas.  And palm fronds.  And what are either red bunches of coconuts or yet another made up flower.  And yes, I do love this dress in all of its kitschy glory.  So, I’ve finally decided to admit what I'm sure we've all long suspected: I Love Kitsch.  I might even make a bumper sticker to that effect, that’s how much I love it.

This dress is vintage (via Billy Goat Vintage in Portland) and, as I think I made abundantly clear, I think it’s fabulous.  I paired it with a white belt (thrifted) to try to reign in some of the volume, mushroom platforms (Bamboo via TJ Maxx) to add a little modernity and multicolored bangles (thrifted) because I can’t help myself.

I hope everyone had a lovely Fourth of July and that no one is having a cruel, (cruel), cruel summer.*  (Wow, talk about words losing meaning – I don’t think I’ll ever be able to type “cruel” again; that is one strange word).

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!
