It seems that every summer I have a thing with retro swimwear. It simply makes you feel like the diva of the beach and why not? the next Bond girl. Usually a retro swimsuit draws all attention to your curves (which some women might want to avoid), but hey, we are women and we should celebrate our curves!
The beach retro frenzy this summer (from left to right):
Michael Kors: 1. high waist bikini, 2. metallic ikat print retro bikini, 3. plunge ruffle maillot, 4. ruched bandeau one piece
Marc Jacobs: 1. color block peplum maillot, 2. molly check bandeau, 3. stripey mademoiselle danger
Juicy Couture: 1. prima donna ruffle top, 2. itsy bitsy polka dot bottom, 3. prima donna ruffle bandeau maillot, 4. betty jean bandeau maillot, paisley park monokini.
I already own the last two from juicy couture and can’t wait to show them off at the beach!!
Don’t forget your oversized or cat eye shades and your wide brim hat.. Bond girl… 🙂

I bet you got the idea: Let the rose gold dust settle in… your wardrobe.
I hear a lot of women opposing the idea of wearing high heels especially when they have a long day ahead filled with work, chores, driving or running after the kids… But none of them argues the fact that high heels are the ultra elegant accessory that gives you a magical – on the spot – feminine posture and movement, elongates the legs, tones your figure and tops up your fashion stakes and confidence.
It surely takes some practice to walk on them confidently and some women have certainly mastered the art of tip-toe walking more than others, however for those who by just looking at a pair of high heels feel that comfort is sacrificed over gracefulness, fashion made it easy for them this year and provided the perfect solution:
Wedges provide a much better support so you can practice your “catwalk”, they come in all heights so you can wear them from morning to night, plus you won’t have to be afraid of destroying your perfect high heels while walking on a bad maintained road.
This summer’s top trends:
Espadrilles, the casual staple is back (actually never left the scene for some summers now). Cork wedges in patent leather preferably in nude color, snake skin and python details, canvas pumps in mute and bold colors, luxe sneakers and METALLICS all over! And let me not forget the color of the season which is no other than bright orange!
We have few suggestions for you on the spot, from left to right: Jimmy Choo nude cork wedges, Christian Louboutin, Tory Burch snakeskin embossed wedges, Tory Burch orange low wedges, Prada metallic silk wedges, Jimmy Choo metallic wedges, Giuseppe Zanotti metallic wedge sneakers, Michael Kors canvas wedges and you can find them all at Saks Fifth Avenue or the respective boutiques.
Now, don’t go to the other side of the fence where you wouldn’t take them off even if you’d go on a safari in the desert, unless your name is Carrie Bradshaw…
*Fashion – Safety Tip: Always have a pair of flats in your car !! Simply store them under the passenger’s seat and wear them for driving, this way you won’t have to sacrifice your style or damage your precious high heels while stepping on the accelerator. And you drive safely too!
