Risky Business

OK, a bit risky... bathing suit season and... I am posting a photo of myself in it... what the heck am I doing... well..

It's just the greatest vintage one piece I could imagine for summer.. and I had to let Society Girls get a peek. I also risked scoring it at a thrift store.. did some major cleaning and I think I am ready to hit the beach.

Have other Society Girls been obsessed with vintage or vintage-inspired one pieces as well?

80's Bathing suit!

Whoa, risque! Your channeling Betty Page big time. I can't imagine what kind of cleaning it needed.

of course i have a collection of them ;). i've never found cleaning them a problem, since they are made to go in the water they are easier to clean than other vintage wear.

I've been having a bit of a retro swimwear moment myself. It all started with a pale mint green one piece (that looks like a swimwear version of Marylin Monroes' infamous white dress) that I purchased three years ago... I love the look!

Totally Fab! I'm dying to accessorize you - wide-brim hat, oversize sunglasses, tropical cocktail - I wonder if Manolo makes flipflops? That suit deserves them!
