Skies Out, Thighs Out

This bathing suit! I found it antiquing with a friend and I had to try it on. It's Catalina and the owner's of the shop seemed to think it dated from the 1920/30's but the more I search, I think maybe the 1950's. 

The shorts were my mother's Calvin Kleins. Mixing different era's here but whatever, it works. I'm still warming up to these shorts but I keep trying. A part of me really likes that they are a smidge too big. 

I've never dabbled into the vintage swimsuit market but the quality of this one is amazing. It still seems to come with the amenities of modern day suits. Adjustable straps, under wiring, but this also has buttons and elastic under the butt to lift those assets. WHY DID THEY STOP MAKING THEM LIKE THIS? 

I just love it. I love the beach. I love the warm water. Short sweet post, The Retro Expo has me all sorts of busy. I promise to post all about it more soon. 

Have a nice evening everyone!
