Fave Finds: Lauren’s Long-awaited Vintage Swimsuit


Who: Lauren of Someone Like You

What: 1960’s vintage bathing suit

Where: My local thrift store in Mansfield, Ohio

How much: $4

When I use it: “I’ve been hankering for a vintage swimsuit for years and have always come up empty-handed because of the high prices. While scourging my local thrift store at the beginning of the summer, I gasped with delight when I happened upon this little ditty amongst some risque ’80s two-pieces. Women should feel beautiful, confident, and sexy in one-pieces just like they do in two-pieces. This suit makes me feel all three when I’m lazing around the pool in my cat-eye sunnies and a fashion magazine.”

Shopping tips: “Never give up on finding that ‘dream’ item. It will pop up someday in the most unexpected place.”

    This is amazing! I am so jealous. All I can ever find at my thrift store are holey t-shirts and extra-large muumuus.

    Et tu, tutu?

    What an awesome find! And your lipstick looks incredible, too. Might I ask what brand/shade it is?

      Hello Cindy! It’s Lauren, the gal in the photo above 🙂 It’s a shade called ‘summer red’ #47, but a Dutch brand of makeup called Isadora. Hope this helps ♥
