As Summer is just now beginning here in the Pacific Northwest I thought I would start a little series about Summer Must Haves. I chose swimwear as my first subject because nothing says Summer like a swimsuit. Also, being an Etsy seller I thought I would only feature items found on Etsy.
Searching for swimwear on Etsy was quite fun. I found all sorts of items. Suits that were crocheted, knotted, ruffled, and even fishnet, oh my!
I have to say that my favorite styles were those that were vintage and vintage-inspired.
Here are a few of my faves....
Sailor girl one-piece, $106
Fun, Barbie inspired one-piece, $100
Cheetah print two-piece, approximately $109
Polka-dot bikini, $124.95
1950s yellow two piece, S, $68
from maefair vintage
1960s mod one piece, S, $64
from old gold vintage
1970s abstract tribal print halter, $46
I, myself, have worn a vintage suit in the past. It was a bright, electric blue terry cloth two-piece. The top was a halter and the bottom were hiphuggers. I loved it!
Now I have something fun to share.

As I was searching Etsy for swimwear I found these cool and adorable swimsuits for your Blythe doll. I just couldn't resist sharing them with you.
Being a Portlander means I rarely, if ever, get to wear a swimsuit so this was fun looking at all the possibilities out there. It was like I was sitting in a cabana drinking pina coladas. Well, not really but still a good time:)
Ciao for now,
