The ostentatious wild cards of 20th century fashion, reborn ready for your next party



In August 2009, dozens of people reported seeing a ‘mermaid’ leap out of the water in Israel’s Haifa Bay. Described as a hybrid of young girl and fish, Mermaid sightings always seem to match traits laid out by Greek mythology - siren femme fetales whose otherworldly beauty and hypnotic song lure sailors to their deaths. Daryl Hannah’s character in Splash, The Little Mermaid fairytale and those flirtatious bombshells in Disney’s Peter Pan have done nothing to break the spell. IRL mermaids would surely be slimy fishy creatures, flopping about with molluscs munching on their scaly bodies. If you prefer the fantasy, this vintage lamé dress with mermaid skirt is for you. 🧜‍♀️⁣⁣
