the bikini is born.

My status as a history buff is one I take rather seriously, and when compared alongside my affinity for pop culture, fashion and what not, well... let's just say my interest level is piqued.

That being said, more than 60 years ago today, the bikini was born. Sources say that it was just "recreated" as there was existence of early models thousands of years ago, but yes, for all intents and purposes, the bikini came to be way back in the 40s--and when it comes to swimwear, we've never looked back.

How often do you buy a new swimsuit? Do you have a particular style that you gravitate toward?

  1. The bikini is so iconic! I used to buy a new swimsuit at the beginning of every summer and another one if I found something on sale. I bought one last year for the first time in a few years and only got to wear it three times maybe. Being a grown up means no time for lake/pool :(

    1. katie, I think I bought three last year and wore one of them maybe twice... made a rule not to buy anything this year, and now I have access to a pool 24/7! I'm thinking I might allow myself a little splurge. ;)
