ARCHIVES > THE BEACH

~ Unusual denim jacket with peplum, embellished with "beach" theme. Slight stretch fit due to spandex in denim, very flattering with defined waist and flared peplum below. "Beach" connotations are evident in front yokes (freely moving glass starfish under see-through lace; seems like they're under water!), pompoms at collar flaps resembling sea urchins. Vintage hand-embroidered tea towel at center back is encased under transparent chiffon with sparkly embossed design; silk print at back sides indicate seaweed / sea grass. Black silk charmeuse sleeves, ending in original jacket cuffs. Sandy metallic fabric at front sides, surprise vintage embroidered towel that reads "hot rolls" on back, plus blue silk satin ruffle with its own lace petticoat layer underneath add more clever detail. Seashells, nailheads, dangling ornaments, velvet ribbon at collar augment the beach motif.
