Pink Saturday - Hoop-la

Happy Pink Saturday! I was at a flea market with friends and had "Pink Saturday" in the brain and had to buy this. I did not even ask how much I just said "I need this"! lol Well turns out that this little gem was only $2.00. The cover was so perfect I want to frame it but when I got it home the "Hoop-la" shirt was inside. I just love thinking about the pretty dresses this would go under, a PINK dress of course!







Please stop by and visit Beverly our lovely Pink Saturday Hostess from "How Sweet the Sound" and all the Pink Saturday posts!

Hoopla Hoopla Hoopla! You hit the jackpot with this one. I think you could acutally put the hoop in a large memory box and put the cover in with in. Love it.
Happy Pink Sat.

Grace, this is just the BEST! I would have been in love with the ad, but to have the "crinoline", too!!! Happy Pink Saturday and thanks for sharing Fashion night out. I love those type of events which I have attended in New Orleans.

That is so cool! You have a fascinating piece of fashion history there. I would have loved poofing out my skirts with one of those back in the day. Happy Pink Saturday~

Oh Grace, I love this post and what you found. Things like that do tend to flatter the figure but I sure am glad we don't fuss with things like that anymore. I remember starching my crinolines when I was in grade school. The stiffer the better. :) HPS

This reminds me of the crinolines we used to wear when we were little. They would make the skirts of our dresses stick straight out...who thinks up these styles? This was a very original find. Happy very belated pink Saturday.
