Tale of Two Suits.

Email This Post June 18th, 2007 nicky

jcsuit.jpgSummer is officially here! All this week it has been about 110 degrees and the pool water is already feeling like a bath! Adrian and I met with our pool builder last week to design the pool for our new house and I am so excited! This time next year, we’ll be floating around in our new backyard. I can’t wait! I went browsing online for cute swimwear and I found lots of pretty things…but one thing that really irked me was noticing how different the same suit looks at different stores. Take for example, Juicy Couture’s Halston Hippie Hankini. I saw it at Bloomingdale’s first and thought, “Oh that’s so unique! A little sweet, a little sexy.” and then 10 minutes later spotted the same suit at Saks and was speechless. That’s the same suit? Is it just me or does it look totally frumpy and weird now? I guess a shiny tan and sultry pose really makes a difference…

    wow thats amazing. I think a tan def makes the difference. And the first model is wearing the top a lot lower across her chest.
    It really goes to show that you have to try things on tho!
    happy birthday for the other day too =)

    i def think the first girl has it lower on her chest and maybe pulled the bottoms up a little higher on the hip. karina you are so right! that’s why you must try on your suit before buying!

    Wow. What a big difference. I so would have gone for it in the first pick but the 2nd pic–her pose is even frumpy.

    And happy birthday, btw!
