My Favorite Vintage Inspired Rockabilly Swimsuits

Retro Swimsuits for Summer 2013

I have had so much fun looking for swimsuits this year. There are so many fun retro designs and rockabilly prints to choose from it’s hard to narrow it down to one or two, and if I could I personally would buy every swimsuit below! I love love love ruffle butt swimsuits and animal print…and cherries…and polka dots…and sailor girl swimsuits…and Marilyn Monroe inspired suits…and there are just so many I love I could go on and on! So here are My top 15  favorites (since I couldn’t stop at just 10)!

Ruffle Butts and Little Polka Dot Bikinis!

The Cutest Rockabilly and Vintage Swimsuits…

For Little Girls!

I have a 5 yr old little girl that I love to play dress up with and adorn with as much Rockabilly fashion as I possibly can- which many of us know is not so easy if you stick to local stores with less than rockin’ fashion… so you can imagine what a thrill it was for me to find the fabulous little girl designs of  Annes Boutique!  Complete with ruffles, ruffle butts (my personal vintage looking favorite),halter tops, bows, polka dots, and most other Rockabilly favorites- but I will let the images do talking!!

Vintage DIY Decorating!

Beautiful Vintage Images and Prints

I was on Pinterest and came across a Pin of a lovely Vintage “printable” and followed the link back to the source.  What I found when I got to the site was nothing less than Vintage decorating heaven!!  As many already know- I love to decorate and do as much DIY as I can find time for, and as pleased as I was at the final result of my step mom’s Vintage style shelf I made her – I wish I had found this wonderful site a long time ago….  has so many beautiful images to choose and they are all free!  So for those of us that like to decorate with fabulous Vintage images, art, and collages it is like Christmas all over again, and for those who love the images and are not so DIY inclined- or just like to buy and save time- she has an Etsy store (once again- all praise to Etsy!): Stampindamour.  So here’s sharing a “brief” selection of the many Vintage images available at

DIY Vintage Style!

Vintage Style with Real Vintage Accessories!

My step mom has a unique style and is one of those people that are very hard to shop for. This year has been my biggest DIY year.  I’ve been going through magazines like crazy, and now Pinterest!  For her birthday I was inspired to make her a Vintage styled shelf ! I used pieces of scrap wood I had, vintage looking scrap book paper, mod podge, vintage drawer knobs and pull, antique spoons, and then embellished it with a few vintage looking trinkets.  I designed it to be an anything goes shelf! There are enough knobs and spoon hooks that it can be used as a jewelry holder, trinket shelf, or whatever else she decides…
