The Object of My Affection

Vintage Swimsuits

Pinup girls. Red lipstick. Hollywood glam.

Introduction by Franco Grimaldi | Photography by Romona Robbins

What a summer! It was really hot, and, if you were anywhere near the beautiful coast of Northwest Florida, you know, thanks to BP, there certainly wasn’t a lack of drama. By the grace of God, the “ooze monster” was squelched, and we have seemingly been spared any further disaster along the Gulf Coast.

With the worst behind us, VIE – People + Places is celebrating—celebrating good fortune, quality of life ... and great fashion! In the subsequent pages, join us on a reminiscent voyage—a voyage that pays tribute to those in the past who did things in a way that continue to enrich our lives today.

VIE has put together a fashion spread that showcases spectacular vintage swimsuits, with Destin Harbor and Princess Beach—the heart of Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast—supplying the amazing backdrop. The suits may not be itsy-bitsy or teeny-weeny, and they may not have polka dots either, but who cares? These suits are HOT! But, beware. The images within the following pages might do one of two things—or both—raise your blood pressure or create a desire to get to the coast. Let Northwest Florida’s COLA 2 COLA become the object of your desire.
