Amazing Vintage 70s Alfred Shaheen Hawaiian Dress -
A perfect white shirt is a staple on nearly every "must have" wardrobe essential list. Pffft. We think every woman needs at least one good vintage Hawaiian dress, better still a trans-seasonal one that makes an impression no matter the season.
In Spring, this gorgeous dress made by Alfred Shaheen is hopeful. As you wrap the peony blossom covered shawl around you, this dress promises a world in bloom. With a flick of your hand, all that flirty fringe whisks away the last breezes of Winter.
During Summer, the shawl can be slipped off to expose your shoulders and reveal a plunging neckline. The juicy orange color and elongated silhouette takes you anywhere--patio party, summer wedding, garden party...the possibilities are as delicious as the season itself.
In Fall, you'll stroll the street wearing your vintage 1970s Shaheen and outshine the turning leaves on the trees. And of course, your shawl will be there to ward off the crisp chill of Autumn.
In the Winter, you'll take this dress to a few parties because this dress is not one to sit at home and pine for brighter days. Your beautiful Hawaiian dress will be a welcome guest at any event.
Fitted bodice is cinched at the waist by a wide belt. Dress closes with a long nylon zipper. Full skirt is voluminous and graceful. Matched shawl trimmed in fringe, oh yes.
At last. Here is your must have Hawaiian dress.
Very good. Hem has been replaced. The shawl is fringed. There are about 30 strands that have a dark stain on them. It's an area that's about 3" x 2"--see last photo. There are a two very small picks in the polyester on the back of the skirt.
