Flashing Some Skin

I've got two beach vacations planned for this year. I'm going to Puerto Rico in March and Hawaii in July. I've also got a Las Vegas trip too but I don't have dates for it yet. Since I'm going to tropical places, I'm going to need some great bathing suits. I scoured the internet for hours hitting up my usual places: Victoria Secret, Venus Swimwear, Ebay and then I found Unique Vintage. That's when it happened. Love at first sight.

If you know me or if you've been reading for awhile then you know I love all things vintage. The bathing suits are gorgeous on their site! I love the pin up look of them. These two are the ones I'm wanting to get for my beach adventures. They seem so Marilyn Monroe to me.
Seriously I envision myself sitting on the Hawaiian sand sitting there soaking up the sun wearing these bathing suits and shading my face with this hat...
 
Should I mention the fact that each one of these swimsuits is at least 75.00 dollars or higher in price? No? Yeah I didn't think so either. Hey... we only live once! I also love this one for the fact that it would be awesome at a July 4th pool party...
I just love the look! I think they are fabulous. It brings back that old world charm of the era. I have visions of wearing these, instagraming photos and being like Marilyn Monroe and Betty Garble on vacation. The suits show off skin without being too flashy. To me they just embody classy while sun bathing. Oh hey... Unique Vintage if you're reading these I'd love to wear one of these beauties.
 
So what do you think? Cute? Where do you find your bathing suits?

I love those suits! I think I bought a dress from that a couple of years ago.

Go for something in a colour you like, a style that suits you and something you know you'll be able to mix and match with other pieces in your wardrobe. Like a skirt to put over them, a sarong or summer dress etc.

I never knew about Unique Vintage...this is so my style. LOVE all of these.

Hawaii? Now I'm jealous.
I may be around your area in late March. Is that when you are away? Grrrr....
