So two weeks ago I came across this dress online and fell in love (but the one I found was too expensive and too small). Notice anything odd about the pattern? It’s a @mcdonalds
dress! It was created for a franchisee convention held in Hawaii in 1971. A week after I saw this dress for the first time, I found one online that had never been laundered and was covered in coffee stains...but best of all it was my size! I talked to my mom about stain removal and took a leap of faith hoping I could clean it...well it took an entire day of spotting it, and then the panic when the red dye from the dress started to bleed and the dress turned pink!!!! My mom to the rescue again giving me step by step instructions over the phone, but by the end of the day we got it to turn white again, we got the stains out, and here it is! And for the record I’m not a fanatical McDonald’s fan (I enjoy their hot cakes) but being in marketing I have an extreme love for fantastically branded pieces of tiki history.
