For years now,I've been trying to find a great vintage swimsuit.Prferably, from the 1940s-1960s.While browsing yesterday, I happened upon a great vintage deadstock swimsuit, from the 1950s with an amazing abstract design and color combo.It happened to be my size ( with 2 inches to spare in the bust) and for only $20.00! The only flaw: some fading on the hip,where light reached it while in storage.To me, that's no big deal! I'm only going to swim in it, if I ever go swimming again..haha, and probably do some photos in it.That'll be an easy fix in photo shop..you would just burn that area in, or pose around it.Simple! So here it is, in all it's glory!
My next find, happened this morning.With all the mounds of vintage earrings that I own, I didn't have any that matched this swimsuit,as much as I would like them to.I'm super particular about things matching and being themed,it's kind of a hang up with me.Anyways, I collect Confetti Lucite jewelry.I love tacky,I love kitsch...so it goes well together.My favorite pair that I own, were a gift from my husband for Christmas last year.They're square,peach in color,and contain a real seahorse and a piece of seaweed in them.They're AMAZING!!!!! So naturally when I stumbled upon two pair of confetti lucite earrings,both containing sea shells and glitter and both capable of matching my swimsuit..I got excited.Then I noticed, they're only $8 with free shipping.I snatched them up immediately:
It just goes to show, that if you're persistant in your search and check daily, you'll find what you're looking for, and at a great deal..EVENTUALLY! So be patient, it pays off!
