Vintage Leopard Print

28 Mar

I absolutely adore leopard print.  Such a classic print that’s widely versatile- from 1960’s Mod swing coats, to 1980’s trashy Peg Bundy looks it always stands out and gives a sultry edge to any wardrobe.  I wish I could find more vintage leopard print, as of right now we only have 2 leopard pieces in stock at Castaway Vintage, though they are both amazing pieces!   Here are our lovely leopard pieces, and some favorite pop culture leopard inspiration!   The dress is spoken for an Aussie customer, but the amazing rare 1960’s-70’s Robby Len sexy cutout swimsuit is still up for grabs!!

There’s a heat wave sweeping much of the country right now, and if you’re anything like me, you’re seeing mirages at every turn. (Today we were joking about installing a pool in our parking lot—I wish!) These bloggers know how to keep cool while making a splash with their outfits! To get their looks, take a retro-inspired suit and pair it with cut-offs, sandals, and a straw hat. You’ll be beach-ready and chic in no time!

And, get a jump start off the diving board with these adorable aquatic looks from ModCloth!

Troncones, Pt 2

7 Jun

Spending ten days in Troncones, Mexico last week for my birthday calls for a few posts to show everything!  After we settled in to our bungalow and got a lay of the land around us, Ray took me on a Sunset booze cruise on my birthday, and we ate dinner at a lovely ocean side restaurant; “Villa de la Selva” on the edge of a cliff, which was once home to a former Mexican president!   We took a side trip down the dirt roads by our place to check it out, and came across some amazing wildlife and animals:

Swimwear wishlist: Agent Provocateur

5 Apr

As I start planning for the vacation that I’ll be taking next month to Troncones, Mexico for my birthday, I had to start bikini shopping!  For the last 2 years I was lucky enough to snag a bikini from Agent Provocateur– one as a gift and happened to find another one on sale.  They just came out with a new swim collection that I’m dying for!!   Such amazing cuts and vintage inspired designs and prints- now  if I only I can find someone to buy one for me this year….

Some of my faves:
