minnow bathers



Thanks to the generosity of Julie and Erin, Geoff and I had a lovely weekend by Lake Erie. It was too cold for a dip in the water but it did make me wish I had the perfect swimsuit -- which immediately made me think of Toronto-based Minnow Bathers. Even the name is perfect! I love how fun these suits are, and the peachy floral print (below) is just too sweet.

Available exclusively at Penny Arcade Vintage.

(Addendum: they have an Etsy shop now!)

  2. you're so right about that being the perfect name! i can't think of a more fitting moniker for a bathing suit company.

  3. oh, how darling, i do like a bathing costume with old fashioned sensibilities, none of this high-cut cut-out neon malarky. you should get one, are you going to get one?
