Trend alert!

Vintage bathing suits re purposed as art seem to have popped up everywhere I turn. I'm not usually a trend person but I'm absolutely loving it.

Whether its an actual vintage bathing suit framed, a photograph, a painting or a wood cut out, I'm smitten.

What do you think of it?

  2. I <3 vintage, with a special fondness for the 30's and 40's. I have been smitten with the vintage beach pajamas that were popular in the 1930's with the wide legged pants. I love this idea of framing a vintage suit. Maybe I'll peruse Etsy for one to frame....Fabulous!

  3. I love it! I've actually saved both kids' first swimsuit and plan to frame them. Have you seen the BHG shot of the suits on a green wallpapered hallway? LOVE!

    1. That is so smart! I would have never thought about framing my daughters first swimsuit...maybe I should have picked one more in line with decor?

    1. Yep, I'm with you! I was thinking of trying to paint my own or maybe just frame some reproductions? I dont think it looks as cool when the material isn't completely flat which is a hard one to master though.

    1. Yes, thats where my head is at lately. I'm considering trying to paint one but I'm not sure if I have the skills. Might be worth a shot though.
