Yo! Beach…

Last summer I was seduced by retro swimwear..the high wasted bottoms and halter necks. ew_black_bikini2_large

It was my first toe in the water of vintage styles for the beach and I didn’t want to trip up so kept it simple and stuck to black accessorised with cats eye sunnies and a slash of red lipstick.ew_black_polka_dot_swimsuit2_large

It was one of my best buys of the summer and this year I want to expand into colour and print – it’s hard to explain the physics of how more can be less.  The nearest thing I can say is that it’s like the wonders of a mini skirt – with a normal bikini you’re basically standing in your pants and nothing is left to the imagination. Wearing a mini, not much more is added..except you want to see the pants! ew_cherries_bikini_large

These beauties are truly designed for women with curves and effortlessly turn you into that nostalgic siren of the screen, oozing feminine charm..green_retro_bikini_large ew_leopard_print_bikini_large

(All the above swimsuits are from Esther Williams, and can be bought through Luna for those in the UK.)

It’s a no-brainer – we need to step away from the sticks of this world and embrace the decades that embraced us back!

Russian Ad..

You can’t beat a bit of Sunday fun…Sometimes claimed as a Russian tampax ad, this is apparently a cleverly ‘adapted’ scene from the Farrely Brother’s ‘Movie 43’.  Whatever it is, it reminded me of summer. I jumped. Then I laughed.
