Imagine a beautiful European vintage styled boutique hotel overlooking turquoise blue tropical waters lapping onto the ancient shores of a distant Mayan land. One of the distinguishing features of this hotel is a red shutter door alongside which are two elegant potted palms. Behind the door is a terrace adorned with a beautiful art deco style railing. One can get a glimpse of the view outside by peering through the arched doorways on either side. The sun is beginning to set, casting golden yellow rays of sunlight across the palm tree lined horizon. It's almost the golden hour. The hand made thatched roof above the terrace begins to become more obvious as the daylight begins to dim and the stars emerge in the dusk sky. The tranquil beauty of this place brings a feeling of peace and gratitude. One can't help feeling restful but also excited for what the new day will bring in this ancient paradise whose waters are filled with the promise of discovery - ancient giant clams and remnant sea shells lining the sea floor.
This beautiful hand embroidered babydoll blouse is designed to inspire and delight one in a luxurious seaside resort getaway such as the one described above. The yoke is hand painted silk hand stitched in metallic threads and embellished with authentic seashells, glass beads, sequins and hand dyed silk ribbon.
The outer layer of the skirt is a sheer off-white silk cotton voile. It is lined with a white cotton silk blend voile. Both layers have frills. There are two silk bows at the front.
