Fashion Friday - Swimsuits

    I saw a post on Facebook from Influenster asking which iconic bathing suits you like best and which ones you would wear. I thought it would be fun to post a few for Fashion Friday.  Which do you like best?  A more modern look or more vintage?  Which would you be more likely to wear?  I really like the vintage look and I think my favorites below are Marilyn Monroe's and Elizabeth Taylor's swimsuits.  I'd wear either one of those.  Check them out and tell us your favorite and which one(s) you'd be more likely to wear.

  I included the Farrah Fawcett swimsuit because it was so popular back when she was one of Charlie's Angels.

   Hope you enjoyed this week's look at swimsuits both vintage and modern.  No matter what your favorite choice, hope you are enjoying summer and getting to wear your favorite swimsuit. Happy Fashion Friday!

Hi Lori,

I agree, I had to put it in the post today because it was so cute. And I have to say Sally Field hasn't changed a bit! She looks so great doesn't she?
