Swimsuit season has arrived and with it some very mixed emotions. . .right ladies? (And I suppose for some gents, too!) We love the idea of summer but that joy can at times be deflated a bit by the thought of, yes, you know. . .putting on a bathing suit!
For the past few years the bathing suit racks in most department stores could easily have been confused with Intimate Apparel/Lingerie. Those itsy, bitsy, teeny, tiny pieces of fabric they called bathing suits were just about big enough to cover my daughter's Barbie doll with. . .so it was very good news (not to mention a sorely needed return to more tasteful fashion) when I ran across this article in our Sunday Paper:
MAKING A SPLASH !!!!!
YES! RETRO & VINTAGE BATHING SUITS ARE IN, LADIES!
Which actually means we may not have to dread the beach or pool this summer after all!
And even if you do look fantabulous in the itsy, bitsy you may find it a bit more of a fashion challenge to find a great Vintage Suit (something like one of these in this great beach photo!) to wear with your platform sandals and straw hat.
Poolside/beach attire has become a fashion statement all it's own. . . so put a little thought into your summer staples and have fun finding the perfect Vintage/Retro bathing suit!
Here are two I just added to my boutique today~~so fun & very, very Retro!
And don't forget, it's the FINAL COUNTDOWN for my Vintage Bridal Give~Away! If you haven't entered just scroll down to the previous post and leave a comment~~the deadline is 11:59 pm EST on Sunday June 1. . .we'll announce the winner sometime on Monday so stay tuned to see if you are the WINNER!
