{style inspiration: the french riviera}



. . . isn’t this the loveliest swimsuit? . . . inspired by vintage french swimwear and beautifully draped in a ruched tulle overlay, it can be worn strapless and would also look lovely with a fluttery skirt for dancing the night away, but mostly, would be perfect with a bellini on an enchanted afternoon in the french riviera . . .

{p.s.} the tulle is a special blend that holds its shape & dries quickly

  • That IS rather beautiful!

  • oh,wow! i’ve never seen a bathing suit quite so gorgeous! so very refined ballerina…

  • I’ve been in love with this suit for months (it was on serious back order last time I checked!). SO gorgeous…would love to lounge poolside with strands of pearls overflowing over it! xx, Laura

  • utterly lovely. i remember falling when i first saw it on jcrew, but i love the way that you suggest it styled with even a skirt, like the gorgeous bodysuits that are suddenly current again on the runway (a la maxmara). lovely styling interpretation. might it be possible for a swimsuit to entirely inspire a vacation to the riviera? peut-etre, because i can feel the sun on bronzed shoulders, the water glinting off the yachts in cannes, and i do believe the terrace at the grand hotel du cap ferrat is calling our name ;) bisous xo

  • Oh to slip this little beauty on would be Devine! Do you know who makes it? I would love it for an upcoming boudoir shoot I am doing for my hubby!

  • Love this so much! I also love your blog as well. I am going to follow yours ;) My sister and I just started a blog together, we’d love for you to visit! Thanks and have a fabulous evening!

  • Yes! Since I first saw this suit (I’m a big J. Crew fan) I’ve had my eyes on it. Gorrrrrge. <3

  • Thank you for stopping in to say hello — it's lovely to hear from you!
