The “Tiki” gallery of the Rock-A-Hula line is filled with Berlin mermaids sporting pencil skirts of the 1950s, wide-leg, high-waisted, side-buttoning pants of the 1940s and tree meet wiggle halter dresses like the “Reef”, made from fabrics with colorful patterns of flowers and butterflies create a Hawaiian dream.

The 50s Sweethearts gallery on the Frozen Hibiscus site has clothing appropriate for pin up darlings like the “Lagoon” a pale blue sleeveless top paired with the ”Sailor” swing skirt in white with a double line of pale blue ribbon circling the hem, and outfits best for rockabilly ladies like the back-buttoning, tight-fitting “Cherry” Corsage top, in strapless fitted black satin with double cherries embroidered on the lower waist and topped with a fringe of red frill perfectly paired with a black straight skirt.

Under accessories you find the charmingly campy coconut purse, made from the actual shell of this tropical fruit and a simple wrapped-rope strap, a classic purse with curved bamboo handles made with ‘Aloha” fabric complete with mini-hula girls in perfect Tiki style.
