I have (Vintage) Swimsuit Confidence! Outfits Modeled by Women over 45, Land’s End

Still Blonde after all these YEARS supports Swimsuit Confidence!

Lands’ End together with 21 real women from Curvy Girl Guide (www.curvygirlguide.com), will launch the first National Swimsuit Confidence Week May 23 – 27, 2011.  As a chosen blogger, Still Blonde after all these YEARS , is  celebrating women of all shapes and sizes and Women over 45, specifically!  I hope to inspire them to have fun this summer by taking part in National Swimsuit Confidence Week.

I, along with 49 other bloggers are posting our pictures on our blogs, in swimsuits modeled by Land’s End!  I know, I know…Pretty scary right?  You can’t imagine how I have fretted over this one!

So..here goes….

I have always admired starlets of yesteryear.  I find them so much more womanly than many of the super-slim stars of today.  So I looked to them for my swimsuit inspirations.


Esther Williams, MGM’s Swimming Movie Super Star and the Chief Blonde show off their swimsuit prowess.  The Chief Blonde is wearing Nine West Espadrilles Shoes,Rhumba Watch c/o $20.00, Ford Cares Breast Cancer Awareness Scarves (background), and the Land’s End  Grecian Swimdress c/o $109.00

I can’t say this was easy–I mean, I have little to no pictures of me in a bathing suit for the first 49 years of my life and now here I am posting a picture on my blog for the whole world to see!  My husband swears my hits will go up…this is the same sweet man who says if he and I participated in the Bachelor Reality Series that he would just hand me ALL the roses right off the bat…I love that man!

    That’s cute! It’s always hard to find swimsuits once you get out of your 20’s.
