Stacey Dress – Feegee Mermaid

The shirtwaist dress has been a fashion staple since its inception in the early 1930’s. Named for its combination of blouse top and skirt; the shirtwaist is a classic, practical addition to any wardrobe. Our take on this style, Stacey, features a fitted bodice, A-line skirt, side seam pockets and buttons down the front, making it a great dress for breastfeeding.

Team with black and white brogues and a cardigan for that timeless vintage winter look or pair with wedges or sandals for a foolproof summer outfit.

In 1841 before the days of his 3-ring circus spectacular, PT Barnum ran a museum in New York. Its halls and shelves were crowded with oddities and curiosities from the world over. Now, Barnum was never one to let the truth get in the way of a good story and trusted his audience to acknowledge the wink and enjoy the spectacle anyway. So when he was presented with a specimen labelled “The Feegee Mermaid”, he jumped at chance to display this exotic creature. Never mind that it was very clearly just the badly taxidermized head and torso of a small monkey sewn to the tale of a fish.
