Lunchtime Rockshow Vintage Asian Inspired Dress

vintage dress 1040s asian inspired japanese wooden figurine doll california pixie blog

I’ve tucked away vintage clothing finds for years.  I pulled this vintage 1940s asian inspired dress out of the pile to wear for the Lunchtime Rockshow fundraiser I helped with in january. I love lots of color, especially up on stage.  I almost passed on this brown beauty thinking it a bit drab.  Paired with bright red tights I had a perfect show dress.  It survived the whirl of my crazy arms! Enjoy the pix!

In case you were curious about the show we did, Moonpools and Caterpillars put on the Lunchtime Rockshow in January 2014 at the Whiskey in Hollywood to raise funds for typhoon relief in the Philippines.  We raised over $21,000 through show tickets and tshirt sales that went out all over the world.  The outpouring of giving blew us away! People are so generous! In some of the worst hit areas of the Philippines, almost EVERY roof was blown off by the up to 200 mile an hour winds.  Funds are still needed, especially to provide roofs.  No amount is too small, but do be mindful of where you donate.  Not all charities are created equal. We chose LDS Humanitarian Aid as 100% of all donations go directly to the cause.
