Vintage Find – 1950s Novelty Zoo Print Skirt
On a recent shopping trip to the Rose Bowl with the lovely Tina Poppy of Violetville Vintage, I was on a shopping mission. I was hunting for adorable cotton skirts for summer. I didn’t end up finding any in my size and budget, so I hit trusty eBay.com when I stumbled across this gem.
I am a sucker for novelty prints, but not the traditional Mexican/Fiesta type prints. I feel those aren’t novelty enough since I am Mexican! I really love comical, absurd prints like the whale print dress I featured a few weeks ago. This adorable print of a family at the zoo, complete with cages and balloons is so original! Who would ever think to put a zoo scene on a skirt. I love it. I need it.
