Hello everyone! I found this beautiful swimsuit at a thrift store a few years back. It so retro 60s which I absolutely adore! It was most likely made in the 80s, but it's still beautifully mod in my eyes. This is my first time wearing it though, because I was saving it for the right location (am I the only one who does that?). I made my sunglasses from an old book cover and a plastic soda bottle. You may recognize them from this post that I did a while back. They're pretty flimsy so I mostly save them for special occasions when they can really add to a look - like in this shoot for instance.
This swimsuit is for sale in my vintage section on Etsy! If you're interested you can check it out here.

This shoot was inspired by one of my favorite scenes from Sweeney Todd (such a fantastic movie in so many ways). I think a reason why I like this scene so much is, because it seems so out of place compared to the rest of the movie. The theme of the whole film is so dark, and melancholic, yet this scene is the complete opposite. It's so quirky and upbeat, which is creating this really fun out of place atmosphere that I adore and find so inspiring.
What's your favorite Tim Burton movie? I don't think I can choose, but I love hearing which films other people place as their favorite!
