Sometimes one is better than two. This chic monokini by Mandalynn Swimwear is SO haute. Let's face it ladies, in Hawaii, where all the swimsuits are near invisible at this point, it's refreshing to find a one-piece that can steal the sunlight. I want to highlight the perfect fit of this suit : the plunging neckline is sexy, yes, but not trashy. The high waistline is great for ALL body types, good for curves or creating ones that don't exist (like on me!). The low back is quite suitable for avoiding the nasty strap tan line & showing off a little shoulder skin. Now most of you who know me would agree that I NEVER (despite my attempts) manage to reach a state of being "alluring"...If anything, I linger in the "cute" category. This shoot was def a challenge for me to break out of cute...I really wanted to show a different side. EEK! Judge gently!
The other piece of my power combo is this EXCLUSIVE Tillvaro Designs cardigan by local designer Corie Lyn Beer. The classic fit is an obvious staple, but what I love the most, is the print & fabric. It's wrinkle free, lightweight without being sheer, & amazingly soft. If you want one, check Corie's line out at Olive Boutique in Kailua. Tillvaro Designs is an exclusive brand to Olive so for those of you townies (like me) you better get your butt to K-town TODAY. I only saw 1 left after I bought mine :P
Thank you Panacea Designs for not only being my fantastic photog for the day but for decking me out in your edgy jewelry. It was a blast trying (hopefully succeeding) to reach a "sexier" side of me.
