Retro Girl for the Summer Giveaway

Lovers, in the 1940s many aspired to be perky pin-ups oftentimes decked out in Retro Swimwear, and tantalizing Tankini Swimsuits who later went on to be known as bona-fide sex symbols a la Marilyn Monroe. Flash-forward seventy years, and pretties like all of vous still covet such a title – and now one (1) of you has the chance to fulfill that dream for the summer courtesy of Popina Swimwear – home of retro chic Jantzen Swimsuits!

You guessed it, kitty cats! Café Fashionista has teamed up with Popina Swimwear to bring one (1) of you buff and bronzed beach babes the swimsuit of YOUR choice from their incredible selection of vintage-inspired swimsuits!

To Enter the Retro Girl for the Summer Giveaway:

Visit Popina Swimwear and select your favorite retro swimsuit.

For one (1) entry, leave a comment on this post stating which swimsuit is your favorite between now and Friday, July 29, 2011 at midnight PST.

For two (2) entries, Tweet about this giveaway, and leave a comment on this post stating which swimsuit is your favorite between now and Friday, July 29, 2011 at midnight PST with your Twitter URL.

For three (3) entries, become a follower of Café Fashionista on Blogger/Google Reader/Google Friend Connect/Twitter, and leave a comment on this post stating which swimsuit is your favorite between now and Friday, July 29, 2011 at midnight PST (if you are already a Café Fashionista follower, please say so in your comment).

I will randomly pick one (1) name out of a hat (who knows, it could be yours!), and announce the winner on Saturday, July 30, 2011.

Good luck everyone!

This Giveaway is open to Everyone – U.S., Canadian, and International residents!


Fashionably yours!
