ONE-DERFUL

Let me just preface this by saying that I have never actually been in the position to take a proper "winter holiday." My winter holidays the last several years have consisted of traveling to the greyest, wettest part of the country for a precious week or two, and while I treasure those visits, they're hardly any call for perusing the Resort collections, let alone swimwear.

Still, in my sweet, happy fantasy life, I am currently preparing for a trip to somewhere warm and sandy, somewhere southerly--somewhere on the other side of the equator, if at all possible. And in this dream world, I'm packing my new R2D2 bathing suit from Black Milk. Actually, it's probably a good thing this is all purely speculation, since I'm not sure I'd be able to settle on a style. It's amazing to me how much the graphic one-piece market has blown up in the last year or so. Between these guys and We Are Handsome, I'd be well equipped for fun in that imaginary sun...

These are so great! In my fantasy life I'm back home in Australia at a beach hut spending my time between swimming in the ocean and on the verandah drinking gin & tonic. Although the reality of snow and mulled wine in Paris is not so bad. Bring on a White Christmas!!

I'm so inexplicably happy that you chose the R2D2 suit. This is why you are one of my favourite bloggers.
