I jumped for joy today while researching something for my blog. I came across this picture of a 1954 wool swimsuit by Claire McCardell. I had wrote about this piece being my holy grail here which I still have in my private stash of vintage swimwear pieces.
This high top knitted suit by Claire McCardell features strategically placed blue and red stripes. Cost in 1954 was $29.95. That's $242.00 in today's market, but this iconic piece is worth tons more to me. i just love it and am so happy to have found a fashion image of it. I love my job!
