Beach Reads

I like how in my last post, I act as if I am above using props as a fashion blogger because I am just so real... yo.  And then in the very next post (this one...) I am reading a Chatelaine from 1969*, a Time magazine from 1968 and a Hamilton mag from... 2013. Because that is a really realistic reading stack for a beach day. What can I say, my interests are varied... 

Check back tomorrow for a full post with a beauty of a vintage-inspired bathing suit, shot in some magical golden light by my lady Julie. Oh... and a giveaway!!!
No props though, I read enough to last me for a year.




*This particular July issue of Chatelaine urged women not to make the following fashion mistakes for the approaching autumn season; no cropped pants, no pointed pumps with stilletto heels and no patterned tights. Those items are like, so 1968... Funny how those same items are still making the 'in' and 'out' lists in 2013...

Everybody's cottage has magazines that hark back about that far. I remember Reader's Digests like that; most vividly the issue with "Tragedy at Tenerife" about the KLM crash (on a fog-shrouded runway) in the Canary Islands. Mostly because my Mom and younger sister flew to Holland a day or so later on KLM. I feared that they'd be doomed...

Looking forward to the full post, have been coveting vintage bikinis lately.
I've been reading your blog for a while and following along on insta, so I thought it was time to say "Hello!". Love your style, and I will certainly have to check out some of your fave thift shops next time I'm in Hamilton (which is often, my boyfriend lives there). Have asked him to take me to Dundurn Castle based on some of your insta pics haha...and now I sound like a stalker. Ooops. Great blog, keep up the amazing work!
