Pinup Swimwear Series || Pt. 2: Classic Doll


Polka Dots are one of the most classic prints of all... even men used to wear dots on their neckties and ascots like Cary Grant for example, in 1955 To Catch A Thief.  In fact, they were originally used on clothing of flamenco dancers and performers in the 1800s.  This is why I find my Red Dolly dotted swimsuit to be so timeless, and perfect for my classic doll look of this series!   It's nearly impossible to walk around Chicago without seeing a piece of history, and the 1920's landmark Drake Hotel stands prominently in our Oak Street Beach background.  As you saw in my first Red Dolly feature, they carry pinup perfect one-piece suits as well as two, and all prints & patterns have a strong simplistic vintage feeling that I love.   I've highlighted the glamour pinup & classic pinup... next of my swimwear series will be coming up soon!
