Navy Spots – Boden, Watermelon – South Beach, White – Modcloth, Red – Topshop, Blue Spots – House of Fraser


Yes, I know, it’s February. It’s blooming freezing outside, and I’m showing you swimwear. ¬†However, during these colder months one of the queries I get from clients every year is ‘I’m off for some Winter sun, where can I get swimwear?!’ – luckily this is much less of an issue now than it used to be, when you would have to turn to expensive ‘cruise line’ collections to get out of season holiday wear. I’m not stealing away for a holiday, but I am at that most delicious part of the wedding planning process where we are looking at booking our honeymoon.¬† [Read more…]

Not so Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny

Ahhh, sunny days, and holiday season is upon us! Girls everywhere try to squish their wobbly bits into 4 triangles of fabric held together with string in an effort to look good by the pool.

Not so for us vintage-loving girls. Oh no, we like a little more, ahem, support from our cossies. Think tummy reducing panels, rusching, skirted bottoms and decent cups that both uplift and control our busts.

However, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but should you be a girl of slightly more slender means, or simply a lover of a bargain, Retro and Vintage style swimming costumes and bikinis tend to cost an absolute fortune! So imagine my delight when I happened to spot (get it?) this polka dotted lovely in BHS! Yup, BHS of all places. The whole bikini (or ‘skirtini’ as they are calling it) comes in just ten of your english pounds! Moreover it comes in a selection of colours and prints. SQUEEEEEE!
