I kind of like these old looking suits. They are back in aren't they?

I LOVE these old looks!! The classic sexy look is soo much better than the "skank" so many girls use now!

I love the old one pieces, you can never find a one piece anymore!!

Kristi Faith said...

Ah yes, that's my era. :) I loved the old fashions in that they left more to the imagination. I feel like they were far more flattering as well.

Love those swimsuits! It's wonderful that so many places (Victoria's Secret, ModCloth, Anthropologie) have options like that now. You can beach and still be so glamorous!

I love vintage vogue! My senior ball dress was actually a vintage vogue pattern, and my mom made it! It was gorgeous! (and unlike anyone elses dress!)

It's amazing how gorgeous all those women look in those suits, and yet, if we were to try and pull them off today, I feel like we'd get looked at funny. It's a shame.

i would DIE to have suits still look like this... they are SO CUTE!

Nicole said...

I LOVE it! I totally want one now!

I'd love for fashion to revert back to those lovely hats. :) Everytime I see one in a second hand shop I'm tempted to buy it.

The swimsuits are so much more flattering for women's bodies! (esp. for those of us who've developed the post age-25 tum)
