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

martine-beswick-Bond vintage- swimsuit style summer inspiration

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?

GIRL, UNINTERRUPTED : A Look Back on Angelina Jolie

Gia Angelina Jolie Gia Carangi Biography-837982

Earlier today, Angelina Jolie wrote a passionate letter to the New York Times which was published online revealing that the Academy Award winning actress had gone through a mastectomy in order to avoid the risk of breast cancer in her future. The letter is a bold and beautiful move that hopes to empower others to take their health into their own hands.

A quote from the actress reveals a remarkable truth to her circumstances, which may inspire many more people to get to the very “root” of their problems. Jolie discovered she carried the dreaded BRCA1 gene (a gene known to mutate to what we know as breast cancer) and knew what she had to do to ensure living a long and happy life:

I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.

It is reassuring that they see nothing that makes them uncomfortable. They can see my small scars and that’s it. Everything else is just Mommy, the same as she always was. And they know that I love them and will do anything to be with them as long as I can. On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.

The news has sparked a lot of conversation around the world on the subject, and once again, Angelina Jolie shows a maturity and compassion for humanity that is unmatched by any other celebrity in the world. She, is also absolutely stunning. So we thought we’d celebrate her beautiful future by turning to her beautiful past and presenting to you some of the best vintage Angelina Jolie realness we could find on this side of the internet.

Who knows how this decision will change all of our potential futures?

Check out the rest of her letter to the New York Times here.

EOF Vintage Angelina Jolie Realness 3

Polaroid of a Teen Witch ? She definitely has displayed a wisdom beyond her years throughout her life, and this latest announcement takes the cake, even for her. You just can’t go wrong with the simplicity of a polaroid. There’s something so present about this moment, as if she’s still just standing right there on the other side of that glossy plastic. Even in her youth she was an icon of individuality, so for that we will always have her at our altar.

+WORSHIP+

That’s about our highest regard.

Truly Outrageous and Beautifully Bold!

You may love the hair colour you were born with, but life truly truly truly is too short to pass on an opportunity to go NEON! And why stick with just one tone, you can keep changing your locks, and go brighter and brighter than the time before. One bold head of fuschia, or maybe one strand of hot pink, with some blue tips. We say run to a local pharmacy or beauty supply store and grab a can of cheap can of spray on temporary colour, and have a hair colouring party!

This is no passing trend. Perhaps popularized by celebrity culture with star’s like Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and Katy Perry all donning techno coloured tresses, this is a look that’s cool from the red carpet to the city streets.

Timeless on 80s icon Cyndi Lauper, you can trust to see her with some wild colour. We take some personal inspiration from cartoon rock star, Jem, and her band the Holograms, where hair and its height had nothing to do with God, it was just BIG and outrageous! Even rock/pop goddess Gwen Stefani showed off pink hair in the 90’s, unfortunately to mixed reviews proving she marches to her own fashion drummer’s beat. We don’t think the world was ready yet back then, sometimes trends and fads need some breathing time before they can come back fully in swing. But we say buck the trend! Now’s the time to show off!

This isn’t just a trend for the ladies either, this one is for all the young dudes out there! We’re seeing a lot of guys sporting colours from deep blue, to hot pink! Colour isn’t defining orientation, no no no. When we want to feel aggressive and hit the town, we pick up a can of punk’d Green, toss on a leather jacket and nobody fucks with us. Trust you can rock this style, and no one will question you.

This is truly a look that crosses the board. Whether your an Indonesian punk or an American bread grunge kid, this look is for you! People need to stand out, especially in our consumer junkie world where what’s hip and cool is in yesterday’s paper’s before it’s off store shelves. This is a simple, timeless way to add a little extra something to your signature look.

We hope to see some invitations to upcoming hair colour parties soon!
