Mad for Martinique!
The 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!
Can you tell I am totally in my element wearing this swimsuit? The Beverly Hills Hotel is known for its stylish Pink and Green Motif so of course I wore hot pink lipstick! Just ignore I am doing the same pose in each of these photos hahaha. My head scarf, purse, and jewelry is all vintage. My pants are American Apparel.
This swimsuit bottom is sold out but you can find the top by clicking here.
And if you want another option that isn’t already sold out, Unique Vintage has this awesome 1 piece!
Dolce and Gabbana recently released a swimsuit just like it for hundreds more. So I’d go with the Unique Vintage swimsuit.
However If you have the money and want me to live vicariously through you, you could always go the D&G route with these coveted pieces.

Want something more for your Martinique obsession? How about this Duvet from Society 6? Target recently had a Martinique set like this with two pillow shams on Sale for much cheaper. If its sold out at your local target at least you have a backup :).

With the rise of fame of this print, I can definitely see more of it being produced and released within the fashion world. Hopefully, I won’t turn into that awesome cooky lady from Advance Style that loves to wear all green haha. Don’t think I will ever get tired of Martinique!
