Swimsuits for Pearshapes: Featuring Freya

IMG_1717-2

Freya bathing suit c/o *see below for purchasing options, Prada sunglasses, Sam Edelman sandals (old color, here in nude)

This post marks a big accomplishment for me both personally and professionally. For starters, I am collaborating with a brand that I have used and loved for many years: Freya lingerie, highlighting their swimwear for curvy girls. However, and perhaps more importantly, I have come to a place where I am comfortable putting pictures like this on the internet. I love my figure and am proud of the curves I have, in a bathing suit or not. So, please, be kind, and help me in celebrating a swimwear line that finally caters to busty, curvy, beautifully hip-endowed women like us!

When Freya asked me to choose one suit from their catalogue I immediately gravitated towards a two piece, if we are being honest. It’s what i’ve always worn if simply for the extra bust support. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and trust that Freya’s curve-enhancing technology would give me the proper support, and look I desired.

While the bust look is definitely not quite as supportive as a bikini top, it did quite a good job! I ordered a 32F just for reference, and love that I could order by specific cup size.

The polka dot pattern camouflaged any imperfections and the material sucked me in at all the right places.

Thank you SO much to Freya for having me today and for all of you for supporting the brands that I truly love. Read my post about the best bra that hides back fat from quite a while back, featuring Freya, here.

* This particular style and color pattern isn’t available on Freya for purchase, but here are two piece options in the same pattern, and the same one piece style in a different color available online.

Vintage Gucci Waist Belt

Gucci White and Black

J.Crew gauze blouse (very similar + cheaper), Vintage Gucci waist belt, BDG jeans, Coach heels (old, but very similar)

Waist belts are my absolute staple (evidence here and here, to name a few). They give me the freedom to purchase as free-flowing of tops and dresses as my heart desires, all the while maintaining the confidence that I can cinch them in and create definition. When I came across this authentic vintage Gucci waist belt at an absolute steal, I knew I had to have it. It satisfies my need (for now) for the classic Hermes “Constance” belt and that waist-logo design.

Classic Black and White

Gucci Waist Belt

I knew what I wanted to pair this belt with immediately when I bought it. This J.Crew blouse was last styled tucked into basic jeans but it’s flow-y nature was asking for a beautiful belt. Classic black, white, and nude allow the gold yet slightly rose-gold tint of the belt to stand out.

Gucci Belt

With branch-like detailing, generous 2 inch diameter, and beautifully preserved leather, this belt will become an absolute staple.

Gucci Logo Belt

Here are a few other Gucci and waist belts that are similar, online:

Adam Tucker Leopard Loafer Review

Floral and Leopard

Madewell blouse (this year’s version), Cache dress (old, similar), Prada sunglasses, Sole Society necklace c/o, Adam Tucker shoes

There were two leopard things I was on the hunt for: a handbag (mission accomplished), and comfortable loafers. My good friend Luci raved about her Adam Tucker loafers a while back so when I saw them available at Nordstrom in leopard calf hair, I ordered immediately. I opted for a 1/2 size up (9.5) for reference, and love the fit.

Floral Layering

Lucite SoleSociety NecklaceI’m also so into this tribal necklace that Sole Society was kind enough to send me. It is the only jewelry I have on my trip to China and love that it goes with nearly anything. I wore it out to drinks a few weeks ago with a girlfriend here, and think it complimented black/white stripes just as well.

Leopard LoafersIf any of you have these Adam Tucker loafers, please let me know your thoughts. I haven’t worn them for long walking distances yet but so far they seem so good. I’d love to hear your experiences!

Layered FloralThanks so much for reading!

Ann Taylor “Chelsea” Crop, Revisited and Renamed

Black Pants for WorkForever 21 mint peplum (cap sleeve option) + belt, Ann Taylor “Chelsea” crop pant (now called “Carnegie” crop), Ferragamo shoes

It has been nearly a year since I slipped on my old favorite Chelsea crop. I used to live in these pants at work. They were the perfect mix of comfy and office appropriate and as I got more comfortable with the cuffed pants look, they became an absolute staple. But, interestingly enough, as I was writing this post and wanted to link back these pants for you, I noticed that Ann Taylor has changed the naming of these pants from the “Chelsea” crop to the “Carnegie.” While I can’t attest to whether the fit is the same, the stock photo looks identical to the old style. I am eager to get into a dressing room and try them on for comparison.

Black Pants

Bow FerragamosThese shoes are also one of the most spectacular work investments i’ve ever made. Comfortable, stylish, and they make me feel cute the whole day.

Mint PeplumKeep your ears peeled for some exciting job updates on my end when I return from China. Fun stuff is happening!
