The Supermoon and Vintage Bathing Suits

Supermoon 20110318 from USA

This year’s supermoon is happening this weekend and since James and I live but a hop, skip and a jump away from the nearest body of water, what better way to view the supermoon than on the beach?

And, speaking of the beach…

If you’re a fan of vintage clothing, I’ll bet you have a desire for the perfect vintage bathing suit–be ye male or female.  I have come across some lovely swim wear, but never just the right suit for myself :(  I’m not really positive what I want but I think it’s red and white polka dots, one piece (kind of like a romper with a halter-top style neck.  (I really loved the bathing suit Zooey Deschanel wore the other night on New Girl but I would definitely need a one-piece!

Have you ascertained by now that I’m about to show you some vintage bathing suits?  Well, you’re right!  First, let me show you a few that I have sold through the years…

Vintage Gingham Romper or Playsuit

My lovely friend Jennifer modeled this amazing gingham romper for me a few years ago.  One of my all-time favorite vintage swim suits!

1940s Jantzen

And what about this gorgeous Jantzen number?  This vintage Jantzen suit was in remarkable condition.

Mid 1960s Vintage Elizabeth Stewart bathing suit.

Bill Blass

Amazing 1980s Bill Blass swim suit.  Also came with a short caftan type cape as a sort of cover-up.

1960s Jantzen

Another vintage Jantzen bathing suit that just recently sold.

But, enough with teasing you with all of the bathing suits I’ve already sold!  I actually have a few vintage bathing suits in the shop!

Vintage Catalina Bathing suit

Gorgeous vintage Catalina bathing suit with bright flowers, late 1960s.  Great modest cut, bit of a dip in the back!

1980s Roxanne

Very similar suit, blue tones.  Vintage 1980s Roxanne bathing suit.

And what about the guys?  Don’t guys like vintage swim wear?  You bet they do!!  Even though I’ve deceptively paired these awesome men’s swim trunks with a ladies’ top, these vintage shorts are really for men.  And yes, ladies, that top is already sold.  :(
