New muumuus

As you know, I like to wear Hawaiian dresses, called muumuus (pronounced moo-moos).  Every January, I drive to the T&L Muumuu Factory in Honolulu to see their new inventory.  And these are the three muumuus I purchased yesterday.  They don’t need to be altered, at all.

I like the black one the most.  I can dress it up with a string of pearls or wear it around the house without jewelry.  I can even wear it to bed.

When the muumuus are dirty, I throw them in the washing machine and then machine dry.  There is no need to iron them.

If you look at my closet, all you’ll see are colorful long Hawaiian dresses. I have worn them to Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, India, the mainland USA, and the neighbor islands.  And that is also the reason why I travel during warm weather.  I would not be able to wear muumuus when the weather is frigid.

This is one of the muumuus I wore in India in November 2012.  David is wearing an Aloha shirt.  The Taj Mahal is in the background:

    Nice muumuus, Gigi. I can see why you like the black one the best. They will all be fun to wear, though. I’ll be seeing pictures of you in them during 2015. 🙂

    I want to go to Hawaii and buy a muumuu! And then I want to go to India and pose in front of the Taj Mahal! Love that photo of the two of you, I hope you have that framed somewhere in your home to look at all the time.
