Tiki Oasis is just around the corner so I'd give you guys a dose of tiki-sipiration and show off my new Ella Tiki dress! The Ella Tiki dress is a new addition to the Steady family. It's a mock wraparound Hawaiian print dress-so you don't have to worry about anyone untying your cute outfit and makes it appropriate for more occasions than just the beach or the pool!
The pattern is bright and fun. It will stand out whether you wear it to a wear to a tiki bar, rooftop barbecue, or any other summer festivity! And it comes in red or black!
For accessories, it is a pinup girl requirement to wear a huge hibiscus (or other flower arrangement) in your hair with Hawaiian print. I found my hair piece at a thrift store but you can make your own using flowers from your local craft store and some bobby pins! Or you can support small businesses by buying a handcrafted piece on Etsy! Two of my favorites are Nicoco Creations or Fancy Fruits.
I suggest giving your outfit a little primitive flare with some tiki, bamboo, and bone accessories. If you have bamboo bangles, wear em! I am wearing a tiki necklace from Fancy Fruits Etsy shop. My necklace has black lava beads, buffalo teeth, and a tiki that was designed and signed by the famous tiki artist Doug Horne. His art is very kitschy, cute, and fun. Check out some of his prints if you need more tiki-spiration!
Nothing says summer like an orange-red lipstick with a sparkle of gold! I'm wearing Redd lip pencil with Steam Heat and Viva Glam Rihanna lipstick, all by MAC. If you love it, go get it quick cuz both these lipsticks are limited edition colors! I'm also wearing MAC's Chrome Yellow eyeshadow. Hawaiian prints are a great excuse to break out your colorful makeup, ladies!
And no... I've not gone to the dark side! My hair is still blonde. I just threw on my black wig because the lavender in my hair wasn't matching the red, green, and yellow pattern. The red tiki pattern would look great on a buttery blonde or strawberry blonde though.
Any pair of cute cork wedges will finish off your tiki outfit and keep that beachy vibe! And don't forget your cat eye sunglasses and a kitschy tiki mug! Or plastic pineapple in this case haha
Hope this entry inspired you to get your tiki on! Keep up with my adventures on my Instagram. Til next time... ALOHA! xo
