Cabana Girls

Click photo to enlarge
Actress Paulette Goddard wears a "dinner-in-cabana" costume designed by Hattie Carnegie perfect for those warm Florida nights.  Made of silk crepe and sequined embroidered.  A real shell clip with diamonds by Fulco Verdura accent the scarf.  Photo by Horst for Vogue, 1941. 

I was inspired to do my own photo shoot with another great actress, Miss Gene Marshall, wearing a similar costume from Ashton Drake.

Love at First Sight Gene Marshall wears Shorts Story designed by Vince Nowell.  Her head scarf is from A Woman for All Seasons accented with a pearl and "diamond" pin from Mattel.   I substituted the original shoes for the wedge sandals from It Happened in Monterey.  Doll and fashions are from Ashton Drake. Table and statuette from Liz Cole/Retros.

I was lucky to find a "pin" that perfectly accents the floral print on Gene's delightful costume.
