Celebrating August with Vintage Swimsuits

Happy August, beach friends!  August reminds me of long lazy days by the pool or seaside, how about you?  Since Vintage Swimsuits are always a favorite of our readers, what better way to celebrate the beginning of August?  You're never going to see a photo of me in a swimsuit (unless it's when I was a kid) but I'm more than happy to share some divine photos of others in their suits...

Elizabeth Taylor certainly makes this swimsuit looks divine, doesn't she? What a beautiful lady she was.

An article about vintage swimsuits wouldn't be complete without one modeled by Marilyn Monroe (one of my all-time favs). The red and white polka dot umbrella is pretty nifty too!

  1. I love the swimsuits, but I also love the fact that these women look like REAL women. Not pencil thin models.

  2. I have a beautiful photo of my mum in one of these. So lovely...... you have just reminded me to get it framed for my beach house.
