Vintage Summer Style Inspiration – Bikinis, Beaches, Babes, and Bond!

Canada is infamous for its cold weather, but we were shocked to wake up to snowfall in April this morning! Needles to say, it had us yearning for those days of blissful sunshine and relaxing on the beach.

Sometimes we use inspiration to invoke a certain spirit to amp up our day, but on days like this, inspiration can be used to transport oneself to new worlds. In our case, we were looking for much hotter destinations to take us away from this bitter cold.

This being said, we easily found ourselves taken away to the beach, and who better to spend a day at the beach with than the impenetrable, secret agent, 007 himself – Bond. James Bond.

And if you’re friends with Bond, you’re likely to rub shoulders and elbows (maybe more) with any number of his beautiful beach bunny sweethearts. But don’t get too cozy in the sand just yet. Some of these beach bod bombshells are not to be trusted, and some of them have a bark that’s worse than their bite. So maybe best to just admire from the distance and let Bond do the dirty work . . .

From Honey Rider to Agent XXX, Bond has had more than his handful of beautiful women, which could account for his own impeccable sense of style. He is a man that knows it pays to look your best!

So enough chit-chat! Feel the sand between your toes, and lets hit the waves!

Can you feel the heat already?


As we always say, The Eye of Faith is the perfect place to

Escape the Everyday . . .

    I did a reading in a college town last Sunday and some of the students were out sunbathing.

    Looking at some of the women in bikinis and bathing suits, I only wished I were more like 007.
