Prints Charming Sunday: A Beautiful Bunch O' Ripe Banana!

Welcome to Prints Charming Sunday!

When you hear Harry Belafonte belt out that very first "Daaaay-O!", don't you guys *instantly* think of the dinner party scene in Beetlejuice? You know, this one?

You should, if you're a retro pop culture/80's movie nerd like myself! Why did I ask such a random and seemingly pointless question, you wonder? (Have you not yet realised that there's always a (albeit cheesy) connection with the day's theme to my seemingly pointless and rambling thoughts? It's the new genius, people.) So when I first laid eyes upon today's vintage novelty print, I heard Harry in my head. And then I thought of Beetlejuice. And then I thought "damn, this is cool", in that precise order.

See? "Daaay-O!" It's really cool and uber awesome for summer, no? This Vintage 50's Calypso Novelty Print Skirt is currently available for a mere 58 bucks and in a very wearable 29" waist from seller Crafty Crow Vintage.

  3. Yes- Reminds me of CM- Just have to have "The Tutti-Fruitie Hat" to go with it! ("Lady with the Tuttie-Fruitie Hat") song by Carmen Miranda in one of her Hope-Crosby movies...check it out! Love the print- unfortunately- not my size (!@#$%)

  4. Yes, actually, that movie (that wonderful scene) is just what comes to mind! One of my all time favs (and the reason I will always be a Gena Davis fan!). Love the skirt .. if I could find maybe 2 more just like it, I could maybe make one that would fit! :(
