Pretty Discoveries: Tiki Style

This week I am getting ready to host a luau-themed birthday party (for myself)! My boyfriend James and I have recently become interested in tiki kitsch culture. We even attended a local tiki event a few weeks ago! I have to say my favorite things about tiki are the retro, bright floral dresses/hawaiian shirts, the 1960's women's hairstyles, the mugs carved into tiki gods, and of course the fruity umbrella cocktails. 

In preparation for my party, I've been collecting vintage tiki-theme images and thought I'd share them with you here...

Dream Bedroom

You may remember my bedroom theme Pretty Discoveries post last week. Well I'm still dreaming of prettying up my bedroom and I'm loving these items from Urban Outfitters...

Birthday Wishlist

With my birthday coming up, I've been trying to resist the urge to go shopping for myself. I've been hating my wardrobe lately and realized the other day that it's been *cough*a few years!*cough* since I've actually gone clothes shopping. I'll admit that while I dream of having pretty clothes, I hate having to go shopping. I'm generally picky and nine times out of ten, the one item that I love is conveniently the most expensive item in the store. And with my part time/ freelance job, I never have that much extra spending money.

I'm excited for my birthday this year, because my mom and I are planning a shopping date together. I love going shopping with my mom because she is really good at finding things that I would normally overlook or not think to consider trying on. I've been doing a lot of window shopping online and thought I'd share some of my 'birthday wishlist' favorites.

I Spy Camp Smartypants Leggings!

Just thought I'd share this photo I snapped the other day while I was having lunch on NE Mississippi Street. This girl is wearing a pair of my tie-dye leggings! And I love how she wore them! The boots and tiger tank look rockin! This is the first time I've ever been out and about and seen a stranger wearing something I made! So exciting!
FYI- This legging style is currently unavailable in my shop, but I will be adding more soon! Sign up for my mailing list (see right hand sidebar of my blog) to be the first to know when they are back in my Etsy shop!
