Lady in the Water - 1947

Fabulous vintage photo. A model floating in the water at Weeki Wachee Spring, Florida. The image by fashion photographer Toni Frissell was published in Harper's Bazaar in December 1947. New photo for me, but it has been used evidently for book covers and album covers over the years.

Bernie Dexter in a Cautionary Tail .....

A play on words ... Our favorite pin-up Bernie Dexter models this "The Big Red"sequined ribbed tank. It's a masterpiece in woven cotten. Grommeted for a metal sheen. Spin around and show your tail!  So cute and by Evil Brand. 

We just added this line to our boutique .... Evil Brand Clothes. Quality lifestyle clothes for: jezebels, greasers, punks, tattooed hell raisers, pin up queens, rockabilly cats and even celebrities. Check out our killer selection of clothes!
Another favorite ... Ladies, we have the "Husband Beater Tank Top." A great take on an old best seller for the guys!  Ribbed for pleasure, this shirt sets the record straight. Remember, the husband you beat does not have to be your own.
Both available at Get Go Retro!
