When you think of an ugly duckling, smokin' hot retro lingerie is not usually the first thing to come to mind....but it should be! When I spotted Ugly Duckling on Etsy last week I knew I had to share. Despite the name, Gal Angel's retro designs are anything but ugly. She also does retro-inspired swimwear, but I chose to feature the lingerie today because I am equally smitten with the charming illustrations she has incorporated into her photos. How cute are these??? Turns out, they are the work of her friend and very talented illustrator, Hagar Wertheim, who doodles pretty much all of the images in her delightful blog, 1 Hug A Day.
I am loving the blue set above as a perfect "something blue" for a vintage or retro bride. And the swimwear is definitely honeymoon worthy...scroll down for a sneak peek at the end of the post. All of the pieces look comfy and flattering to a wide variety of body types...just be sure to allow time for delivery, as the pieces are all shipping from Tel Aviv!
