Calling all Spring Breakers! We know you’re still recovering from Finals and Winter Break, but have you realized that Spring Break is only a month away? You might scoff at the idea of ordering a swim suit in February, but think of this: Your perfect look might also be the perfect look for thousands of other girls. Of course, there is something special and unique about every one of us; but it’s probably not your swimwear. Don’t believe us? Here’s a list what’s most likely in your swim drawer.
2 Triangle Tops, one is too small, you say it’s your “tanning top”
1 Bandeau Top, also a “tanning top” because you wouldn’t dare wear it during any other activity
3 Tie Side Bottoms, two are solid black
1 Hipster Bottom, you only wear this if absolutely necessary, i.e. vacation with parents
Pretty close right?
So, maybe you need to spice up your swim wardrobe a bit. You get online, find some
really cute swimwear and you bookmark your favorites.
But don’t wait too long! Consider that you might have to exchange sizes or maybe that color doesn’t end up complementing your skin tone? Exchanges can add another two weeks to the process. And backorders, though rare, will really throw a wrench in your plans. Just like your flight plans and hotel reservations, we know your bikini choice is important. Our advice? If you love it, don’t leave it till the last minute.

We’ve enumerated the niceties of neon, but now it’s time for the triumph of tribal. Tribal prints are everywhere this season, be they modern twists or classic patterns, and everyone’s catching on. Tribal prints never fail to create eye-catching swimwear silhouettes, and if you choose one of these tribal suits this season, you’ll be turning heads wherever you go. When I think tribal prints and swimwear, my mind immediately goes to Agua Bendita. Agua Bendita swimwear is the hipster of the tribal trend–AB went tribal before it was cool. And [more...]
With the election a week behind us, it is easy to forget that there are many people on East coast who couldn’t watch the results roll in, or check the election status on their computers. Many couldn’t get to their polling places. These people did not return from a hard day’s work to a warm home, because their homes are gone, or seriously damaged. Their neighborhoods have been devastated by the storm, and they may need food, supplies, medical help and help rebuilding their lives. Our civic duty is not [more...]
One of the most prevalent 2013 swimwear trends is hard to miss. Neon is here in all its bright glory. Whether the print is a solid, tribal, animal or floral, neon is pervasive this season, so 2013 swimsuits stand out in big way. Maybe our designers were thinking of their teenage summer jobs as lifeguards? We first saw the neon trend creeping in during the 2012 swim season, but at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim 2013, neon was out in force. Go ahead and look at our video previews. I’ll [more...]

I am guilty of the cardinal sin of health laziness. I could go to the gym, but that’s just another step between me and exercise and, when times are tough, expenses like gym memberships are the first things to go. If you can’t afford the gym, then you probably can’t swing that shiny, new home exercise machine that looks like a medieval torture device. You’ll probably just hang that bikini you’re trying to squeeze into on it anyway. So when we’re feeling lazy (let’s just call it what it is [more...]
