Vintage Vogue 1957 Perfect for a Tropical Vacation

Is it to early to plan the summer? Definitely not to early for a winter vacation to a tropical paradise. We will be heading to Hawaii at the end of Jan. so I am sharing these dreamy vintage outfits and do with I had a few of these to take along. All the outfits shown are from Vogue 1957.

Swimsuits by Dior, Vogue 1957
Original cost ~ Empire on left $29.95, button one on right $35
Love both of these swimsuits, I think that white one would flatten my tummy nicely.
Signature fine Art Cottons

Signature silken cotton sateen in turquoise, gold, black $25. Fabrics also available by the yard

Floral streamer print by WAMSUTTA in dacron and cotton blend.

Sundress girdled in cotton chiffon $30, one-piece boy pants swimsuit $18, deck jacket $12.

From Oleg Cassini

This lovely dress has a very low back, love the details.
This would complete my wardrobe, going from the beach to day wear and evening cocktail. I am having such a wonderful time in my 'love to have' vintage. And, if you have noticed these beautiful outfits are so wearable today. hope you have everything you need for your vacation. Bon Voyage!

    1. I love the clothes from the past, but I love wearing the more comfortable clothes of today, so as long there are both I am a happy camper, which I love to do too!
