currently craving: vintage bathing suits

this weekend megan, amanda and i met with a local stylist and got to rummage through her amazing collection of vintage clothing! so much fun! she had the most fabulous collection of vintage bathing suits which, of course, left megan and i quite obsessed with finding some to call our own! as i was searching the internet i came across these beautiful photos that now have me even more determined to find a vintage bathing suit for this summer!

  1. Great post - I love the vintage pictures. I would definitely wear a vintage suit if I could find one that I could squeeze into! I run into a lot of old Jantzen suits out here in Oregon, but so far no luck with finding my size.

    I hope you find one - and I hope you'll post pics when you do!

  2. They are so much sexier than the tiny ones they sell on the highstreet now, sometimes less is more I think!

  3. I would totally wear one if I would look that good in it!

  4. Yes I would! I would love a blue sailor-themed one with pockets! Or a pink one with frogs? ;) These photos are so amazing. I want to jump into my suit right now and lay on the beach! Are you re-thinking the one piece, N? I love mine! xo

  5. I love all of the vintage suits! I actually found one at target last year that fit surprisingly well and has a definite vintage vibe (here it is:|B001JA2EP4&CPNG=&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B001JA2EP4&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001)
