    Retrotastic! Cherry prints, Polka dots and gingham, love them all. You do love your forest green. It is a luscious colour.

      I’m on a green kick and my posts are reflecting that…its bad. I have two more posts coming up about dresses I own…and they are green. Sigh. I’ll get out of my rut here soon.

    Timeless! Looks like you’re all set! X

      I have to work with the curves — a brazilian thong is not the most flattering for me….unless privacy and “beer goggles” are involved.

    it isn’t easy being green 😉 love the flashback suits and their modern counterparts! xx

  4. I love these original vintage suits (wouldn’t wear them to go swimming though: too much fabric… may be on a yacht cruising… hmmm yes!) Besides loving your green, you do like your M Kors too, right?

      I like Michael Kors items, they fit me really well. It’s a classic American Sportswear line and swimsuits fall nicely in the offerings. But, I like Dries van Noten, too (haven’t ever seen a swimsuit). And Missoni (have had a swimsuit). My favorite sunbathing bikini was La Perla (reversible orange/white). 😀

  5. Oh yes!!..and so perfect for curves xxx

    Your suit is awesome. Lately I’ve been leaning towards green. You’re having an influence on me.
