Bathing Beauty in Blue from Cottage Coastal

{Coastal Home Hot Pick!} Framed Bathing Beauties

Sometimes you find an piece of coastal art that features all the elements you love!   We’ve found such a home accent and knew that we had to share it with you.   This week’s Hot Pick! oozes vintage charm, is made from recycled materials and is beachy keen.

Our friends at Cottage Coastal (and a long time sponsor) have recently added Framed Bathing Beauties coastal art to their store.  Each vintage-inspired art piece is created with recycled materials.  The frames are built with salvaged wood and distressed to add that cottage charm which we crave.  No two are the same so you’re getting a true one-of-a-kind piece for your home.

Bathing Beauties coastal art prints are handmade in the US.  Each 9″ x 11″ distress white frame is approximately 2″.  The 4″ x 6″ print is safely kept behind glass.

Visit Cottage Coastal for their selection of Bathing Beauties wall plaques as well as their line of  coastal distressed wooden wall plaques.

Vintage Swimsuit Advertising

Jantzen, Catalina, Maurice Handler Originals, Lastex, Dan River…just a few of the names of swimsuit designers who have created beautiful swimsuits over the past five or more decades.  Retro swimwear is back in style and after checking out all of these Vintage Swimsuit ads, we know why!  It just shows that you CAN be covered up a bit and still be fun, flirty and even sexy while on the beach.

Besides the adorable swimsuits, we love the artwork and photography of vintage ads in general.  The swimsuit colors are cheery (and notice all the PINK!) as well as fun but we’re most impressed with how vintage media campaigns seemed to showcase women’s beauty.
