Retro Beachwear

I went to college in Savannah, Georgia but unfortunately spent most of my summers back in Illinois with hardly any access to sand and surf. Oh sure there were occasional trips to the man-made lake and its pebbly beach or to the local water park but nothing compares to the ocean: the wind and salt and sand in your swimsuit/car/beach bag. I grew up watching Gidget and Moon Doggy surf and Frankie and Annette flirt and I dreamed of living in the 1960s. I ran across some great photos of fabulously glamorous starlets on the beach (or maybe that's the desert...) and thought you'd enjoy them.

Elizabeth Taylor is so cool with her lasso and ruffly bikini top and don't even get me started on how gorgeous that shot is of Marilyn. Then there's the lovely Susan Hayward with her tropical print and the fabulous Natalie Wood.
In the spirit of things, let's you and I channel retro glamour and hit the pool in something like this:
