While I was preparing for my jaunt to Florida this weekend, I was reminded of these gorgeous, vintage bathing beauties I spotted a while back. These photos were shot by Tom Palumbo, a fashion and celebrity photographer who shot for Harper's Bazaar and Vogue in the 50's and 60's. His portfolio runs the gamut – from fashion shoots in downtown Manhattan to haunting portraits of a young Mia Farrow. But it's his beach fashion shoots that I love most, with the amazing accessories and incredible use of light and color.
Let's pretend, for a moment, that it's not mid-January in Chicago and we're on a beach somewhere ... (okay, you pretend and I'll get back to my Floridian vaca)
