All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Hey Sailor, come here often?1. Reversible Party Dress - missbrache
2. Sailor Swimsuit - FablesByBarrie
3. Navy Retro Swimsuit (Ahoy there) - bettieB
4. SAILOR GIRL rockabilly WIGGLE DRESS - MaisyBrownReproRetro
I bet you thought that the wunderkammer couldn't do patriotic, well it was a bit of a stretch. Of course all I had to do was search rockabilly to find the perfect summer 4th of July pieces. Whether you're bold enough to sport one of these fabulous swimsuits or you'd rather go a little sailor glam with a great dress, you don't have to sacrifice your different style for a little red,white and blue. You can have it both ways.
