separate suits, same shade

(high/low cut American Apparel swimsuit, Forever 21 sunglasses, mom's old necklace)
photos by MC & me
Apologies for the decrease in posting. I'm falling ill (damn you cold weather!) and looking at these photos from Palm Springs make me miss the sun even more. I promise the torture won't go on for too long and I shall provide you with more winter worthy posts soon enough. In the meantime, imagine a bulbous little girl due to many layers of jackets, scarves, gloves, and all things wintry! Now onto the sunny photos... before heading to California I (stupidly) realized that I only have 1, singular bikini to bring. It was only after buying this GORGEOUS swimsuit (that also looks like it belongs in Eric Prydz 'Call on Me' video) that I (once again, STUPIDLY) realized it was the same shade as my other one. I love it though. If you look closely in the 2nd photo you can see juuuust how little fabric is holding the top and the bottom. A mere 2 inches I'd say. V high cut crotch + v low back = a v self conscious me. After numerous hours of sunbathing we went to eat at The Cheesecake Factory. I urge you to eat there as soon as you can and order the roasted pear and blue cheese pizzette and the avocado spring rolls. As for the cheesecake... red velvet with cream cheese. Now if you'll excuse me I need to find a napkin to wipe away all this drool xxx
