Retro Inspiration in case you already don't get it

I think these images epitomize everything I want from my future one piece, retro-inspired swimsuit.
I won't do my normal peanut gallery commentary as I think these images speak for themselves.





all images via Conde Nast Store
Now all I need is a cute swim cap and some blueberries.

I love that grapes shot.
I scored the most amazing vintage circa 1950's "prude suit" at Urban Outfitters (of all places!) last week. I found it in their urbanrenewals section. It's to die for. I have a major thing for vintage onepieces. I hope you come across a treasure.

This is what swimsuits SHOULD look like - I'm a card carrying member of the modesty movement :) SO much easier on us all! The last example (green) is just beautiful - the cover up with collar makes the look.

These images are gorgeous! I l-o-v-e the plaid swimsuits. I have the blueberries in my fridge, now I just need one of these beautiful suits!

Thanks so much for your oh-so-sweet comments on my blog this week (regarding my Dad and everything else). It really means so much to me!

This is how I always want to look at the pool! The plaid suit at the top is just gorgeous!
I love the pale peach one second from the top below. Just looks so flattering and sopisticated.

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

The first one is my favorite! I love them all, and have always thought one piece swimsuits were the sexiest and most flattering.
