|Cole of California - the ultimate in swimsuit glamour|
When my mother was a young blonde carefree teenager she loved to hang out at the beach with her sister and friends all day. Apart of the obvious sun tan and exposure to UVs, the swimsuit she and all of her friends longed for a Cole of California swimsuit. It was the icon swimsuit, made famous by the beach movies from Hollywood and the rising craze of surfboard riding. I've managed to purchase one or two but they are highly collectable and there's a genuine craze for vintage CoC! All those svelte figures and built in bustieres - those were the days!
