It's from the 50s, and is home sewn. This is one of my "just throw on" dresses that I...well...just throw on, when I need to just throw something on - if you know what i'm sayin'...
It has been over-dyed with black though, but it looks blacker in this picture that it is in real life. If you look closely at the fabric you can see the Hawaiian islands here and there on it, with the islands names written in gold. So with this Hawaiian theme I can imagine the dress was very colorful before someone dyed it.
Since it's become quite chilly here in Sweden I put on a little purple cardigan over the dress. It's from H&M, and I bought it a long time ago.
Something that always spices up your outfit is hair flowers, so I added some matching purple ones to mine! Can't remember where I got these...In this photo you can see my sister tattoo. Both mine and my sister's names start with a "C", so we both got these on the side of our left hands. Inked together for life!
