I didn't intend to ever post a swimsuit picture here on my blog but, this outfit warranted the lapse in judgement.
This is an outfit I wear commonly since I live on a lake and I like to swim, boat and essentially have fun in the water.
It was only a week ago that I realized that all of these garments were made in the USA. A real rarity these days.
The swim suit is from J.Crew and I think I've had it since the mid 1990's. I love the color and fit although the bandeau top is starting to lose elasticity and fade, I still wear it. The skirt is Fresh Produce and is about 10 years old and I thrifted the lace top earlier this summer and it is American Apparel.
So this is a plug for thrifting, for keeping your clothes in your closet and for knowing that someone was paid a decent wage to bring these to me. And I'd like to think that the obvious durability was the result of excellent workmanship.
