Timeout ~ BEEP!
Vintagegirl was not in attendance at the event where horrors of sandals and shorts took place. And no one, no one, could come close to her fashion divaness.
Vintagegirl ~ Fashion Diva yes/no = Yes (with a bunch of stars to boot.)
No fair. Disqualified for unfair outfitness.

Wow! I do not have any of the right clothing... I was planning on the Tikikon in Portland, but I really think my wardrobe would not fit in. Well, there is always next year.

I rock the black/white wingtips, nice crisp clean chinos, and either a "modern" bowling or traditional hawaiian shirt, with a nice flat-top goin on, typically.

And, I don't much care if others like it.

It's what _I'm_ comfortable in.

Just be glad I don't wear the Utilikilt. Heheheh.


I get enough farby button-pissing crap in the medieval recreation group I'm in.
I'm shootin for "comfy" in this one. If they had em in the 50's, I'm wearin em.

PRAISE THE LAWD!!

I have loathed the Croc from the beginning. I would see people wear them around town, and cringe. The only place I thought they maybe made some sense was in the medical field. But to see people out everyday with those things, just brutal. Have we learned nothing from parachute pants?!?

Shoes have got to be the trickiest part of dressing for Tiki soirees. The styles (especially the colors) have changed so much, and vintage footwear tends to be a little, well, gross. I've been lucky to find a few pairs of colorful heels over the years that pair with my dresses pretty well, but I still find myself scrambling and fudging it quite a bit.




"vintage footwear tends to be a little, well, gross"

I'm kind of surprised by this statement coming from you as from the party pix I've seen here of you here on TC, you tend to be quite stylishly dressed. Maybe clompy 1940's heels are a bit gross, but IMHO Rat-Pack era classic pumps are boss, maybe tortously uncomfortable for the wearer, but they look AWESOME!



THIS SHOE RULES!



I think these go with any Tiki ensemble!

SOooo random! But I had to add it--I used to work as a manager for a music venue in NorCal and just had to get this taken--I think this was 2002-or 2003 (notice the flower in my hair-it was actually covering up my cauliflower ear from getting in a drunken brawl the night before--:0
I had to add -i did not start a fight-I was trying to break it up and got punched in the side of the head!



And my 2 pennies--- crocs & tevas=bad!
And for me-these are the quintessential tiki gal shoes!

Unfortunately there are many croc-offs being made. True Croc's may be going away... but we will likely never be rid of them entirely.

heres my pair. I bought them in Cannon Beach years ago. These are kinda high for me and when I wear them I'm well over 6 ft. Consequently I have fallen off of them when drunk! ( see chip in toe )
