It’s sooo hot here and I thought I’d take the opportunity to show off some of my fave swimsuits and bikinies - for me to cool down and hopefully you to heat up lol. Some are new and some are classics but get a new life with new styling, so please enjoy. The suit in the pic above is from Angel Dessosus, a beautiful leopard print retro swimsuit with the classic low leg cut and belt. One of my fave suits, my love for animal print is well known.
Another of Angel Dessosus’ 2011 releases – what is known as a monokini – a classic 70ties hit that’s become ultra popular again. I fell in love with the monokini as a little girl when i saw photos of Raquel Welch sporting some of these and this yellow and olive model with sprakle prints is perfect for a deep summer tan.
From left: Another monokini, this one from Bijou in gold with bandau top and lowcut 70-ties bottoms. Next is an 80-ties swimsuit, also from Bijou – cut classically high on the hip, with a sexy plunging neckline and wide belt with huge gold buckle. Trashionistas everywhere would love to pair this with high heels and flashy designer bag – I have chosen to flash my tattos and pale complexion and a mane of wild raven hair – who says you gotta be tanned to look good on the beach? I was unable to tp to Bijou while writing this – if you cannot find Bijou, just use the photos as an inspiration, theres so many awsome swimsuits of this type around and I’m sure you will find one that just screams “you” someplace. Last pic is a classic bikini from Zaara – in beautiful golden colours, the texture reminding me of asian batik – so simple and so sexy.

I kinda fell for this goth girl look for the beach, it’s so unusual and striking – I just got to remember to bring my sunlotion with total sunblock so I can stay this pale all summer long. The gold bikini with wicked cutouts is a vintage piece from Bijou which sadly just as i was posting this was unable to reach the store for a SLURL.
These last two swimsuits are two of my favourites, I love pinupgirl fashion and I think these two capture the essence of the fifties perfectly, each in it’s own way. On the left “Sabina” – artilleri’s polkadot number comes in a variety of colour combinations, has a nice halter style tie top and ruched panel at the front. To the right is “Marylin” which is an Angel Dessous vintage style strapless one-piece with cute ribbon details on the hips. Kinda reminds me of the swimsuit worn by the leading lady in the old B-movie “Creature From The Black Lagoon” – so perfect for a pale innocence like me lol. Have you got a favourie swimsuit or bikini? Would LOVE to see them – happy summer and stay cool!
