Muumuus and More

Aloha attire for women is an offshoot of the Hawaiian Aloha shirt, the traditional Hawaiian muumuu, and the more formal holoku. What originated in the 1930s as a shirt for tourists made from old kimono fabric, soon became one of the most widely worn summertime looks. For many people, the love affair with Hawaiian and Polynesian fabrics has grown into avid collecting of vintage Aloha shirts and muumuus. Of course, monstervintage has a lovely assortment of vintage Hawaiian wear to share with you.

First off, is a spectacular 1960s, empire waist, full length dress  made by Ui-Maikai.  Embellished with  aqua hibiscus  flowers, this dress will be a showstopper at any summer luau.
