Vintage Swimsuit

I haven't seen anything this cute in awhile...probably because it's still winter! I just won this little 1950's bathing suit or sun suit on Ebay. Actually I don't know that I would risk wearing it in the water...I think it's one of those play suits thats just made for looks. You know, for lounging around by the pool and looking gorgeous.

Vintage Kitchen

Talk about the ideal retro kitchen! I thought these were replicas when I first saw them, but no, they're authentic 1950's kitchen appliances. And pink of all colors! How perfect is that. This is seriously my dream kitchen. I might even cook if I had decor that looked like this.

Vintage Starlet of the Day

The legendary Jane Russell. Here's an interesting couple facts. In the early 1940's, Miss Russell was turned down a contract with Paramount because she was too tall, and 20th Century Fox said she was too unphotogenic! Excuse me? Unphotogenic? Too tall? Howard Hughes then took over and the rest is history.
In the later fifties Jane scored a sweet deal with Hughes. He gave her a million dollar contract for 6 more movies, but it was right around the time Howard was losing interest in making films. Jane ended up not having to make one of the six movies, and basically scored a million bucks for nothing. Nice.

Vintage luggage set

I've been so behind in my vintage blogging lately, forgive me! Anyhow, I need this! I'm in desperate need of some cute vintage luggage, and this would suit me perfectly! I love the blue. The set is from the 1950's, and it's satin lined inside. Gorgeous.

Vintage Hats for the New Year

Happy New Year ladies, I'm finally back. I thought I would start the year off with a collection of gorgeous vintage hats I found on Ebay. They range from 1930's to 1950's, and are all quite unique. I think I'm gonna go with the 3rd one as my favorite, that ivory satin is irresistible!
