Geronimo

Untitled-1

I haven't really started thinking too much about spring yet but if I was thinking about spring, I might be thinking about swim suits. I'm so picky when it comes to swimwear and I never see any new suits that I like. Even most of the retro inspired vintage-y suits don't quite live up to the vision of the suit I have in my head. I've tried my hand at actual vintage swimwear only to find that the elastic is rotten or parts of them are stiff (ick!) or they completely stretch out of shape upon contact with water.

All of my swimwear issues may be a thing of the past if I can get my hands on one of these suits from Geronimo. They are the brainchild of California based Jenny Reyes who arrived at this collection after an enviable path that included designing stage costumes for Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins and interning at Rodarte. Each of the suits come in a variety of patterns/colors but honestly, I can't imagine them better than they appear here.

I was online just last night once again searching for my perfect vintage swimsuit, alas, it is not to be found, not in the past 5 years! I declare this year is THE year!

i love looking at swim suits, but i swim maybe once or twice the entire summer ... so actually spending money on one isnt exactly a priority lol.

These swim suits look good. Thank you for making me know that brand!
I found a black and white Jantzen swim suit from the 50's on a flea market last year. I wore it last summer but never tried to go in the water with it. I'm scared of what could happen!

Oh my, I really love the plaid one!

I don't do sunbathing, but I still have 3 bikinis which I never wear. I wish I could justify buying another one :)

I am dreaming of swimsuit season when I'll actually have brain to get good bikini instead of H&M.
