It’s getting harder and harder to come up with new themes for these photo posts, so it’s time to start revisiting some old ones. I’ve already had an exotic post, but this one will be a bit more specific and focus just on tropical and Polynesian themes, one of my favourite things!
A “mystery girl” from the Mai Kai tiki restaurant.
Gene Tierney looking very tropical.
Loretta Young in a lovely tropical print gown with a great (shell?) necklace.
Loretta in another tropical look.
Susan Hayward looking tropical in a great bikini, and beautiful hair! Source: Dr. Macro.
Of course this post couldn’t be without Dorothy Lamour. This is from the funny “sweater, sarong and peekaboo bang” number from Star Spangled Rhythm.
Dorothy again with Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and another girl I don’t recognise.
I love this travel ad. I wish I could travel to Hawaii like that.
This is just about the best little playsuit/sarong thingy I’ve ever seen. Worn by Peggy Ryan. Source: Dr. Macro.

Jinx Falkenburg. I love the giant flowers in her hair.
I love this outfit on Jean Peters. The pink flowers look great against the white.
