Norma Kamali bathing suit and sunglasses. American Apparel shirt.

A rather gloomy, warm day at Laguna Beach with Natalie. Despite our coastal relationship, we've somehow managed to visit each other lots, each warranting pictures to our sartorial freedom. During her stay here, I wanted to cram at least one beach day over the 4th of July weekend without having to battle two hours of traffic and drunk frat boys by simply going the day before. Wore a bathing suit and sunglasses designed by the talented Norma Kamali. Yeah... I've been dying for a pair since my last birthday - proof in the post. And, what better way to finish off a very 50s-inspired look with ruby red lips?

  19. Beautiful shots as always. Such a contrast between NY and Laguna. I really like the retro one piece. It fits the history of Laguna very well.

  22. this suit is really nice

  23. Just discovered your blog, really nice!!! You have a new follower!


  24. Love the classic and romantic look of these photos. You look incredible! This is my personal favorite style of bathing suit, halter and ruching one piece is very flattering. My go to is something similar in a chocolate brown, but it's not a Norma Kamali. A touch of red adds just the right amount of glam.
