More importantly, I hope it gives you some great ideas on how to style up your holiday outfits with some very affordable and colourful accessories so you can hit that beach looking a million dollars.
I found this gorgeous two piece 50's style bikini in my favourite retro/vintage shop in Byron, Trash, for just $28. (Actually it only cost me $10 because I had sold some clothes! I love this re-cycling, pre-loved game.)
BTW, I bought that body board I'm sitting on for $5 in a charity shop, or op shop as they're called in Australia and elsewhere. Never underestimate the bargains you can find by a regular root around!
My pretty top was another Aussie buy this time from Jaase, a company aimed at a much younger shopper. It quickly became my very favourite for the entire 4 months because it was the coolest top to wear in that extreme heat, and it covered my arms. I can't remember how much it cost, but it was a cheapie and a goodie!
Finally, during a Food, Fashion & Fun filled few days in Melbourne, I found yet another perfect swimsuit. Part of the Esther Williams bathers collection, it is designed by Esther Williams' grandson in California. These swimsuits are available all over the world and are the most flattering I have come across in a long time keeping all the bits that stick out, tucked in! They're made for real women. For those too young to remember, Esther Williams was a movie star legend and invented synchronised swimming.
Let me know what you think, I love hearing from you, and PLEASE don't forget to tag your social media photos of any fab outfits you're wearing #vintageladyvintagestyle.
See you soon, take care,
Can't wait for summer!
