Mad for Martinique!

mike-rosenthal-tack-artist-group-paule-ka-paris-beverly-hills-hotel-editorial-girl-1500x994The Iconic and glamorous Beverly Hills Hotel a.k.a The Pink Palace was built in the early 1900s and is known for its 1950’s architecture, stylish decor, and legendary guests. It’s a dreamy place I’d like to visit just so I can experience having breakfast at the Fountain Coffee shop whose walls are adorned by my the Beverly Hills Hotel made-famous Martinique print. I have been a fan of this Banana Leaf print for a VERY long time just recently discovering it’s origin just a few years ago. Dolce & Gabbana recently released an entire collection dedicated to this iconic print and I wish I had the $$$$ to buy it all. Thankfully lots of other designers who are more affordable caught on because now I see this print on everything being sold everywhere! I want to buy it all! I just have a love for tropical prints so it’s no surprise to me that the Martinique print caught my attention. I have pillows, phone cases, bed sheets, and clothing in this print and I am not sorry about it. Recently I got my hands on an AWESOME two piece Martinique Print swimsuit via Unique Vintage and seriously want to wear it every single day of my life. Though I got my hands on the swimsuit late this summer, I am glad I at least got to wear it last month at Green Valley Ranch pool which somewhat reminds me of the Beverly Hills Hotel haha. I created this post, not only to discuss my obsession with this print, but to share with you all the cool Martinique print clothing and accessories I have my eye on or have already bought (for you gals who love this print too hehe). First things first though, lets talk about my new favorite swimsuit!
