This morning I was doing my usual thing, flipping through one of my vintage magazines looking for inspiration to post for you here. And there it was....bam! This image nearly knocked me out of my chair! Do you see it? From 1954, this Rose Marie Reid swimsuit is made from black cotton printed with giant red, white and blue safety pins! Look again.....do you see it? The matching cotton terry beach towel with the same print enlarged on white terry! This will make me smile all day long. Swimsuit sold in 1954 for $12 (about $102 in today's dollar.) Beach towel sold in 1954 for $4 (about $34 in today's dollar.)
