I am posting this photo despite it stirring the feeling of inadequacy in oh, 99% of women in the world due to my love of this bathing suit. Candice Swanepoel, a South African born up and comer in the model world who has recently been acquired by VS (duh) as well as Nike and Tommy Hilfiger. I have never seen a real person resemble Barbie more than this 21 year old does, but I will accept your natural perfection and applaud you for being discovered in a market and not choosing to run around town proclaiming your beauty without merit. (Sass much?… Sorry.) Ok back to this glorious piece of water magic! The pink lining, the ruffles the unique print is absolute perfection. And while unfortunate tan lines are inevitable, I would still buy and wear this in a heartbeat. I love the fish scale essence of the suit and would love to hop on a plane to sunny paradise with just this suit, some sandals and a daiquiri or two. Who’s coming with?
