as the weather becomes even more-and-more humid and temperatures reach into the 90s, the search for a new bathing suit is inevitable each season. i browse most years and never find the one. this year, i've favored a few and actually found a winner that wouldn't break the bank. i remember looking at the duckie brown spring/summer 2010 show last fall and taking away two summer picks: a pair of saddle shoes and this bathing suit.

when i saw it, i loved it. i didn't know if i could wear it [or would wear], but i loved it. today, i found a close match at neal mello on grant street in brooklyn. i still don't know when or if i'll wear them. we will see...
