Trending: Retro Swim Suits (Part One)

photo (5)

Today’s post is the first of two on the Retro Bikini Trend that has taken over swimwear this summer.  This is also another feature of the beautiful Alyona on top of the Greatest City on Earth.  She is wearing a “real” vintage bikini from the 1960’s and a Karen Millen fur shrug I added black feathers to for Burning Man.  Tomorrow I am going to cover my favorite retro style bikinis available for purchase now… and exactly how this trend should be worn.






I love this Leopard Cat-Eye Frames I found on eBay– amazing even when not in a retro bikini.


The necklace is vintage while the earrings are an adorable find from ASOS.


The cuff is a cheapie from Forever 21, but the watch is one of my favorite things I have ever bought from Michael Kors.  The tortoise shell watch is a classic that goes with both black and brown and everything in between.  I am not a big watch wear-er, but this one stands out.


The shoe is sadly by and unknown brand, but it is the perfect sandal for summer and even works by the pool in your bikini without looking too “glam-girl”.
