So in case some of you didnt know, we are having a bit of a heat wave here in New England.  Its pretty damn hot.  But I like it - it the kind of heat wave that reminds you of when you were a little kid riding your bigwheel down the block following the ice cream man just to get one of those "screwball" snowcones - so you could cool off.  Well, my idea of cooling off now is heading to the beach.  Nermina (one of Concetta's Closet's models) and I headed to Wallis Sands beach here in New Hampshire.  Nice clean bleach - a little too infiltrated by kids, but I tend to sit as far away from the kid crowds as I can.  (Dont get me wrong...I love kids, but not sand-kicking, screaming/crying ones!)

So that brings me to my next topic - Bathing suits.  I see tons of vintage bathing suits on Etsy from the 50s/60s.  You know, the ones that look like your grandma would have worn it (and I think mine still probably does).  Bullet boobies, low hips and so much coverage that you only get your legs and arms tan.  So not my thing.  I tend to lean towards the funky 70's cutout bathing suits and super low slung bikini bottoms.  Here are a few of my fav's from Etsy:
