Summer is officially here! And I can’t believe I forgot to wish you a “Happy First Day of Summer!” Bad bad blogger! Well…I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far. Have any of you hit the beach or the pool yet?
The heat is definitely rising in parts of the country and I know you’ll be reaching for your swimwear soon. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be grabbing my swimsuit and my new cover-up.
I’m not going to lie, I’ve always wished Everything But Water sold plus sizes. For so many years, I was just like you walking past their store in the mall and NEVER entering. Well, we don’t have to worry about that anymore!
“The largest retailer in swim and resortwear in the US is proud to announce the availability of plus size collections from Becca Etc By Rebecca Virtue, Sorella Swim and Michael Kors nationwide in-stores and online!”
I was so happy when I read that! LOL! I know I’m a dork! And I didn’t know they also sold accessories!! They really do have “Everything But Water!” I was sent a Sorella swimsuit and I looooooove it! Just in time for summer!
I guess I’m a sucker for python print and I’m in love with the colors too! There are so many different styles, as you can see on the beautiful Tara Lynn below.
These are quality suits ladies! You are definitely going to get what you pay for. There are different options too-various two pieces, one-pieces, and cover ups. Some of the other bloggers that attended are even eyeing the cover ups as possible dresses! They’re such fashionistas!
Summer isn’t over yet, my loves. If it was…would I be writing about Sorella Swim, this new incredibly chic luxury swimwear line? Hmmm???
“Our goal with Sorella Swim is to have our customer feeling sexy and chic while wearing her Sorella swimwear. With this in mind; we pride ourselves on the high level of quality with a specific focus on fit. This key attention to detail combined with superb craftsmanship and design set Sorella Swim apart from all other full figure swim brands. Sorella Swim is a luxury swimwear brand for the real woman. It is finally a brand she can call her own! “-Jessica Petersen, owner and designer of Sorella Swim
The swimwear will be available in sizes 10-24. And it will debut for the first time this summer to retailers in July during the famous Miami Swim Fashion Week.

Crystal Renn strutted her stuff down the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week catwalk for the Gottex Spring 2011 line today. There’s no doubt she’s a beautiful woman, but has our poster girl for plus size models lost her plus size appeal?
In my honest opinion, if she’s happy with the way she looks and she is comfortable in her own skin, then I’m happy for her and anyone for that matter; regardless of their size. I guess compared to the size 2 on the runway she is still a plus size model. And Gottex does make extended sizes in their swimwear line. The coral swimsuit is AMAZING!
I want to know what you think. Do you still consider Crystal Renn a plus size model?
Summer…Summer time!! Ok…I’m not going to get into that Wil Smith song, but I am more excited than usual in this hot weather. I am writing this post before I head to the pool and I’m staring at my ugly old cover-up. It has come in handy, but I think it’s time to move on and I’ve found a few replacements. I don’t want anything too flashy, just simple and classic. And I love the Avenue prices!!
I never thought it would be possible for me to fall in love with swimwear. I mean, I’ve always HATED my body in a bathing suit. Well, I guess Alisi Swimwear has given me a reason to LOVE again. I’m head-over-heels for these swimsuits! Gorgeous! They come in Australian sizes 12-24. That averages to US sizes of 10-22 (make sure you check out the size chart).
I would wear any one of them proudly in all of my curvy glory! Alisi is an Australian company, but they do ship internationally. You can even find them on these US and UK web sites, but it looks like sizes go pretty quickly. So get on it!
Let’s make a day at the beach or just lounging by the pool fashionably classic.
I’ve definitely been craving a day at the beach. I just want to grab my favorite magazine and a book and just lounge! When I was packing for San Diego last week, I realized that my entire beach outfit cost less than $35! That’s swimsuit, sun hat, and flip flops.
Well, you must know I’m a budgeting master. And just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t look chic on the beach, right? Well, the entire look I put together (below) was only $95.83! This is definitely a look that will carry you through the entire summer.
Will UK’s Simply Be please hurry and come to the U.S. already! I’m drooling over here! I know they will be here this summer, but this shopaholic is getting impatient.
Look at this Simply Yours swim wear! I can’t stop staring at the Panache (polka dots) Swimsuit. I am looking for a cover-up too. Something that isn’t boring and a waste of money. Why is it always so hard to find a decent swimsuit?
