Finding the Perfect Swimsuit

On a dark stormy day, in a low corner booth of a greasy pizzeria, a pact was made. This pact was life changing, and had immediate consequences to my happiness.

Sigh. False. That’s not what happened. My life has been a bit hum-drum lately, so I thought I might spice up my story.

Actually, I was sitting in a pedicure massage chair, the warm sun streaming gently through the windows, listening to the birds chirp and the buzz of Korean television when my pedicurist asked if I wanted the salt scrub and mud mask. They were running a special, and it really was a very good deal when it hit me like a sample sale on my way home from lunch. It’s springtime! Sandals! Shorts! Bathing suits! Yipes!

Yes! Yes I want the salt scrub! Exfoliate exfoliate exfoliate!  Phew, that was a close one.

My mind soon turned to spring and summer fashion, like it does, and I realized I will be in need of a new bathing suit soon. Yea shopping! Immediately I took inventory. Exfoliated feet and legs? Check. Toned arms? Nope. Chiseled tummy? Not in the least. Awesome bum? Well, I’m awesome, and I have a bum, but I don’t think we can conclude that it is indeed awesome. Soft, gently tanned skin? Nope. Pasty. Pasty pale fragile skin. Hmm…

Every once in a while I’m a realist, and I knew that I would be able to change only one item on my list before it was time to try on a swim suit. That’s when I turned to my friend and we made a solemn pact to get spray tans. BrilliantHauteLook.com - Members exclusive premium online sample sale. It’s nice to have good friends with which to make important pacts.

With this item thus settled, I relaxed into my chair and contemplated summer 2011.
Obviously, the goal is to look hot. So let’s see, how best to drop jaws…

White and Gold: With my new spray tan, I’m heading straight to the stunning contrast of a white suit. Gold accents? Yes, please. Nothing screams confidence like a little cream and gold suit, a la the jet set. Any style works with this trend, so you get to choose the shapes that flatter you best.

Sculptural: This season, try sculptural one-pieces like this one. These suits appear to be etched out of marble, consequently making the wearer look like a goddess. And really, why not look like a goddess? 

Bold Solids: Remember when almost every suit had some type of floral print? And then floral's moved to stripes and polka dots and checks? Well here we are, in 2011, and we are seeing a trend toward solid colors. Bold solids, specifically. Bold solids in bright or jewel colors are über hot right now. Designers recognize the merit of a saturated color, but some have chosen to add visual interest with texture like this stunning ruffle number.

Naturals: Prints are certainly not a thing of the past, however. Suits in ikat prints are still going strong. Most prints this season come in toned down naturals. We aren’t getting too color crazy with patterns this year. Another hot trend is mixed media, as I like to call it. Try out a suit with some fringe on top, or a bikini with a dark solid color bottom and a light top with rope detail.
                                                      
Cobalt and Honeysuckle: Two of my favorite colors this season are fresh takes on blue and orange. Cobalt and honeysuckle are awesome colors for suits, but can also be found on nails, sunglasses, and bags.

Naturally you will need sandals. You just got a pedicure for goodness sake! You have to show that off, and you simply cannot walk everywhere barefoot! Of course you will need gladiators. These particular gladiators also come in my favorite blue of the season! Another take on the gladiator sandal, these flats are a less intense version of the trend.

I personally have never been satisfied with only one shoe option, so this season, I’m going to pick up something like these embellished flats. I simply adore these flats, what with the ankle strappiness and studs and the bling.

Also, if there is one thing I’ve learned from the runways and Heidi Montag, it’s that a lady looks best in her suit when wearing heels. I can’t wrap my head around stilettos and bikinis, but I can certainly wear some awesome wedges to give me height, length, and great posture.

Every twirty girl knows skin cancer is a real thing, and thus always takes steps to fashionably cover up. You already have a tan straw hat in your wardrobe, but do you have a black one? Don’t forget a gorgeous pair of sunnies! You’ll need an easy breezy skirt to wear over your new suit, and you’ll want something soft and light to slip into at the end of the day.

You probably need this too. It may be a little glam, but since when have I ever shied away from glam?

And, lastly, desperate times call for desperate measures, so go do 30 sit-ups. Nah, 25 should do it.

Shop Happy,

Shop Girl

Truly, no brand is more synonymous with sexy glamour than GUESS. GUESS Fragrances is pleased to announce a new limited-edition show-stopper: GUESS Seductive Wild Summer.  Flirty and lighthearted, GUESS Seductive Wild Summer slowly reveals its steamy secrets: hot summer nights, playful games, whispered promises, the heart-pounding rush of that long-awaited first kiss, an urgent surrender.

GUESS Seductive Wild Summer’s vivacious notes signal a true summer scent: lushly floral with a musky base.  The top notes are a flirty wink and coquettish giggle as the day dawns: fruity Lychee and crispy Pear sprinkled with vibrant Red Berries.  As a relationship blossoms in the steamy dusk, the heart of the fragrance unveils: a floral bouquet of iconic Rose and tender Orange Flower draped in ethereal Jasmine vapor.  Finally, night blooms: an intense dry down of sensual Vanilla, deep Cashmere Wood, and intoxicating Musks.

Beginning April 2011, Seductive Wild Summer (1.7 oz) will retail for $52 at GUESS retail stores, perfumery chains, department stores and www.guess.com.

SHAPEEZ, THE ULTIMATE BOSOM BUDDY
Introducing the Unbelievabra, the Multi-Purpose Bra that Will Change Lives

Recently, Oprah proclaimed that “choosing the right bra can change your life.  The right bra can reverse aging; it can make you look 10, even 20 pounds lighter.”  Unfortunately, most women have not found the right bra for them: they are stuck in a traditional bra with uncomfortable elastic bands around the body, straps that are constantly slipping off the shoulders and, the worst part – back fat and bra bulge. 

Every woman has been on the hunt for their perfect bra, but until now, their options have been limited.  The Unbelievabra by Shapeez is an all-in-one bra and body shaper that provides superior breast shaping and support while eliminating bra lines and back bulges.  Based in the USA and manufactured in North America, the Unbelievabra is a breakthrough in garment technology.  Made from the company’s patented ‘smooth-back’ design (no back bands or closures), the Unbelievabra is constructed with breathable cool-tex lycra that fits snugly to the body providing a close, lean, and supportive fit.  It also wicks moisture away from the body keeping you cool, dry and light.
