Ack! My Cup Runneth Cver

Too many boxes of goodies are taking over my office! I've been a collector of mid-century modern for many, many years and NEED to open another Etsy shop for housewares, knick-knacks and kitschy items ( website too)  My hold-up is ....a name. But I am terrible with names!  What do I call it??

Everything but the pillows, is vintage

Alfred Shaheen Jump / Catsuit

On a shopping trip over Summer, I found this unusual mid  60's Alfred Shaheen Hawaiian catsuit / jumpsuit. The fabric is the same as his Hawaiian dresses from the 50's to 60's with  similar detailing. My internet search has left me empty on any information about it but I did locate another one like it that was red and silver and sold on Etsy some time in 2013 - The ties were sewn down in the back, and on close inspection I see that someone has released these to make a halter tie. If you have knowledge on this Shaheen jump / cat suit please feel free to follow up to my post. Any help would be appreciated.
