I need a Vintage Costume

Wednesday, September 15, 2010



Gaad Dayam it's hot in Joburg these days. I've been dreaming of summer and the beach and just wish somebody could make vintage swimming cozzies already. I have a teeny weeny little bikini and realised I need to get a new one when I couldn't wear my cozzie at my 6 year old cousin's birthday party for fear that my uncle's friends might get hot under their trouser collars. Then when I saw these pics, I had to share and put my wishes out there: please somebody make vintage inspired bathing suits, I will buy them.


These pics are so Americana.

i also wanted a 50 style one piece. I had a red one specially made. it's similar to the norma kamali one in the first sex and the city movie: http://www.illtakeboth.com/2010/07/norma-kamali-runched-retro-swimsuit.html
good luck!

OMG Skinny Bitch (lol) my obsession's always been there but it skyrocketed after SATC 1 with the black high waisted one Samantha wore! I want one exactly like that.
