Every summer I like to treat myself to a new sundress. This cute gingham dress features a built-in bullet bra for that Hollywood glamour silhouette. Retro swimwear is getting easier to find, like this Esther Williams-brand suit, which hides those trouble spots and accentuates your curves.
You can’t get through all that sunshine without protecting yourself with sunglasses and a sun hat. I love these vintage-inspired cat glasses and super cute Cabana hat with oversized brim that features a drawstring interior band so it stays on snug.
Your tootsies with stay cool in stylish sandals like these adorable ones with seahorses. And you can tuck away all your essentials in a generously-sized straw tote.
Ladies, how many times have you felt your lingerie is so pretty, you just wish everyone could see it? That’s definitely the case with What Katie Did Lingerie – the retro-inspired lingerie brand that recreates the sexy looks of silver screen starlets of the ‘40s and ‘50s. They recently paired with one of my favorite vintage reproduction designers, ReVamp Vintage, for a fashion show unlike any other.
The catwalk took the form of a classic burlesque routine. Models provided a seductive but elegant and playful tease – we’re keeping it PG folks! – showing off ReVamp dresses and pantsuits on the outside, then stripping down to their What Katie Did Lingerie underneath. It was a great way to showcase both designers – and as expected, the crowd went wild!
