Every time you're out and about, it's an opportunity to allow your favorite accessoires to come together! I love that swimwear becomes a blank canvas to show your glam side. When I rock my swimwear, I'm all about my Miami - SoBe style! I start over with my Norma Kamali classic bikini with a plunging neckline (I have a green kelly one but love this one in black) and pair it with this Mawi Single Dome Necklace with Spikes. Slip on this Jamie Joseph moonstone ring available at one of my favorite online retailers, Ylang 23! Finally if you spiked your necklace, spike and bling out these heel-less wedges by Giuseppe Zanotti Design are the perfect shoes to rock out to when you're pool side or on your roofdeck and only want to enjoy the sun (with SPF of course) and no interest to pop into the water!
I'm not one for one piece bikinis usually; however, Norma Kamali was influenced by Parisian style of the 30's and made the Bill swimsuit in 1976! This bikini has been apart of her collections and was worn by Cynthia Nixon's character, Miranda, on Sex and the City - the movie, has been included in a number of shoots over the past decades and is one of those items that are a must to have in the closet! What I love the most about this look is the ruching and although it is Parisian inspired, I also get a bit of that old Hollywood feel about it as well! With a classic look, whether you're wearing this to the beach or a private pool party, you don't need much to make this look phenomenal. So I wanted to share items that come along with me when I'm out! Last year, Norma Kamali took this classic Bill style and made a $98 version of it which is available exclusively at her flagship store in NYC (love that I live 2 mins from there) and online. To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of the suit at this price point (which is available in a number of colors and is shown above in Steel), she is giving away 4 suits this month in July on her Facebook, Foursquare, Tumblr and Twitter pages!
Spring Break 2011 looks kicked off yesterday and we're always dreaming of the next best thing in bathing suits. Now I am a bikini kind of girl - I love two pieces! So when I see a one piece that catches my eye, then of course I have to share it! I'm loving this Orange Tie Dye suit by DiNeila. It screams SoBe, St Barths, Rio and Negril just to name a few locales. This is definitely perfect for those cabana parties or events where it's seriously bathing suit only. I'm also think that when it comes to SoBe, it's all about Nikki Beach and I love the hues and angles in this suit! So to ensure that you look like the sun baby for sure, pair this up with the phenomenal lamb leather cuff by Yasu Jutaro which doesn't restrict your wrist and only feels better with each wear as well as rocking Annette Ferdinandsen's Mexican Fire Opal Egg Ring available at Ylang 23. Of course, no look is complete without cork heels and how can you not love Christian Louboutin in this department? Finally, when you simply want the bag that has elegant edge, finish it off with this super cute satchel from L.A.M.B.!
