Bikini shopping-bound

June 22, 2012

Folks, you heard it here first: I’m off to buy a new bikini.

After a major swimsuit fail on the weekend (thankfully in the bush – cottage country!, well.. anyway) I need to take back control over the misbehaving Lycra in my life.

Here in the meantime is what I’m really feelin’ for a summer’s suit- the classic beach babe pin-up cut from H&M with memories of Hawaiian palm tree and golden skies, kind of like PC Memories of Szechwan sauce, but a bikini. And you-? Are you bracing yourself for the glare of retail fitting room horrors- a.k.a. swim shopping- this season? How often do you flip a suit?

I do love this look and it would love me back, I’m sure. Classic bombshell bikini from an era when sexy was a little more covered up, this H&M two-piece is better not sold out. At $30, I’m thinking it may be too late for me. Will let you know what happens

      Thanks! Apparently that suit is no more in my size, and the colours were really muddy in real life, not nearly as enticing. No dice on other styles at H&M, and no luck at Gap. To be continued…
