How do I live without you??

How do I live without you?

Today will go down in history as the day my life became simultaneously 1000 times richer and 1000 times sadder, due to the knowledge that a) this exists and b) I will almost certainly never own it.

(Vintage Fiorucci bathing suit from Nasty Gal Vintage found via Cat Party. And yes, it's already looong gone.)

There has to be some sort of service somewhere in the wide world that screenprints photos of your choosing on to spandex. Why not?

Oh my. What a find!

This reminds me of a bathing suit in the movie Gummo (a crazy movie) but it's a tiger.

This would be amazing with black sequin leggings, double guilty pleasure.

hi! can you tell me what the weather in NY is like right now? I'm flying in this Thursday and have been obsessively looking at NY blogs to get a sense of what the weather calls for in terms of wardrobe..many thanks and i love your blog!

Anon: The weather is seriously all OVER the place. It's not cold so you wont need a heavy jacket, but I would bring some sort of light wind breaker/rain jacket because we've been getting a lot of thunderstorms. Otherwise, I would bring warm weather things as well as a cardigan or something for layering up in the subway where it is invariably over-air conditioned (at least in all the new fancy trains.) Sandals as well as shoes that can hold up in the rain. Basically, it's been warm but not super hot yet, at least most of the time. Seriously though, I can't even keep a handle on what's going down. Bring options!

Aww, it's amazing. I'm sad you won't own it, it looks like a very very exciting swimsuit. keep an eye out for knockoffs, i guess?

Haha, seriously you guys, I'm torn between wondrous amazement and wishing I never knew this even existed, because I will not be able to rest until I find some sort of decent approximation. TOO. GOOD.

Wow. Just, wow. I am completely speechless.
