Blog Tag!! Tropical Tease!

It's Blog Tag Wednesday at the eVintage Society!. Summer is the perfect time to take a holiday to a tropical locale! Meanwhile, wearing Hawaiian and exotic prints in vintage can tide you over til you can afford that plane ticket. Let’s get tropical! I was tagged by Jen at Penelopepup's Vintage Blog for some island thoughts!

1) Show us your favorite Hawaiian or tropical print in your inventory!

Oh boy! At Purse Diva Vintage we've always specialized in Hawaiian vintage. We love everything, the dresses, shirts, jewelry, you name it. We've sold quite a few amazing pieces lately, but still in stock we have this incredible Waltah Clarke bold print shirt - it's incredible. Watercolor abstract mums is the best way to describe it.

We also have several incredible necklaces available, like this one:
and a darling babydoll puff sleeve dress -

2)Favorite era for Hawaiian? 40’s exotic gowns, 50s bombshell sarongs, 60s printed shifts or 70’s Hawaiian halter maxis?

Wow...that's a hard question! We really love it all, all eras. It's all good!

3)Favorite exotic destination if money were no object?
Fiji, for sure.

4)Favorite exotic destination on a real-world budget?

5)Best vacation ever?

We took a 5 day cruise from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas a few years ago, returning to Florida the day before Hurricane Charley hit. We had no idea it was coming and no idea what to do. We ended up "stranded" in Florida for several days, and believe it or not, that's what made us decide to move there. We had the time to enjoy the town, walk around, investigate everything, much more of an opportunity to do so than we would have had. So see, sometimes, hurricanes can be good. :-)

VINTAGE OR BUST!~Blog Tag Wednesday~ Hot in the City

It's Blog Tag time at the eVintage Society! I was tagged by Jen at Penelopepup's Vintage Blog! The temperatures are climbing, Summer has set in and the heat is on. Show that summer sun who’s boss and turn up the heat in your own wardrobe. Hot colors are cool!

1) Show us your favorite hot hued vintage in your inventory! Think summer sunsets, bonfires on the beach….reds, oranges and yellows.

This fun vintage yellow Daytona Beach shirt is great for summer! Check out that darling alligator - this has a fun twist.

And everyone needs a bbq apron - this one takes the cake! Tourists in trouble!

2)Favorite thing to wear to ward off summer heat?

Tank tops for sure!

3)Favorite warm weather activity?

Lying on the beach in the all-time, any time of the year activity.

4)Favorite warm color? I think, just the right hue of sunset orange.

5)Favorite season, warm or cold?

Definitely I'm a warm weather girl. Lived 38 years in the cold - now we're moving to Florida, finally!
