Swim Cap Glamour: A Retrospective

Ahh, it's nice to go back to my blog and tip toe through the things that inspire me. Here's a few belated posts that have been shelved but now I can share them with all of you:) Enjoy.

PPQ Designer Swim Caps

When I saw these amazing swim caps from PPQ, I had to go back to what I remember of swim caps (my Mom religiously wore these even before dipping her toe in any pool we frequented growing up.) What a journey Swim Caps have gotten since then, don't you think?!

Vintage Photography...Horst P. Horst

Coco Chanel Reclining, 1937

The most iconic of all images in fashion and photography. Horst P. Horst "Mainbocher Corset" 1939. And do you recognize the image? Yes. Madonna liberally borrowed Horst B. Horst's iconic images for her video for "Vogue."
