Looking like it's never been worn even once, this exotic vintage purple tunic would be a fabulous beach coverup -- or a top to wear with jeans and shorts, if you're a bit daring. It's lavished with fish in golden glitter, finished with gold and green beads tied into points at the knees and patterned with loads of sexy peek-a-boo slashes.

The "deconstructed" look makes me date this treasure to the late 1980s or early 1990s. Along with the two huge fish, a graceful undersea plant and the word "Bahamas" also appear in glitter. The tag (so crisp it's like new) reads: ARAWAK T Neely's of Nassau in the Bahamas 100% Cotton XLong. Total length is about 31 inches. Sleeves are raglan-style, finished in points with knots. The cotton knit is good and thick, with a rich, high-quality feel. This must have been expensive originally. Provenance is a New Mexico estate.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
