Brown Vintage One-Piece Swimsuit


When I was younger, I bought swimwear that were trendy — skimpy, stringy and cut to leave only a little to the imagination. I wasn’t comfortable and I was in love with vintage already, so I now wear vintage swimsuits, which cover more skin (but are not necessarily less sexy) and are made of more durable materials than mass-produced or poorly-made swimswuits. has an extensive inventory of vintage swimwear and lingerie. The online store dates their vintage and includes substantial information and photos of their items. If you are interested in vintage swimwear and lingerie, the online store is a good resource guide.


I don’t own a lot of bathing suits, not being a beach baby. But I own a few that I love. One of them is the one I’m wearing above. (Okay, you can skip this post or close your eyes). 😛

To care for swimsuits (any kind, vintage or not), hand wash them. Some modern swimwear can withstand machine washing but I suggest you hand wash them. Use mild soap (but I don’t use detergent) and hang them well. I read somewhere that swimwear is better air dried than sun dried, so I do that. I guess, when you dry the swimwear directly under the sun, it becomes brittle.

Thrifted Hat and Vintage Sundress for R(and)R in Moalboal


Why is “summer” almost always synonymous to “beach”? I don’t know. But, surely here in the Philippines, where beautiful beaches abound, summer definitely means going to the beach! My second trip to the beach this summer was with my workmates (fellow bankruptcy geeks). Continue reading “Thrifted Hat and Vintage Sundress for R(and)R in Moalboal”

TRAVEL | Sayaw Beach


We had really great sunshiny days the summer that was. Now that the rainy days are here, let me share to you one of the best trips I had this summer. It was an out-of-town trip that lasted some 12 hours, half of those hours were spent inside a van. I helped my friends with their prenuptial shoot (they got married last weekend, congratulations!) and the photographer took us to this small corner of the national highway down south, in the town of Barili.
