Thank you for all the Turkey recommendations for the last post – I was intrigued by the restaurant on water bit, that actually comes quite close to fish coming to sacrifice itself in a puddle of lemonjuice! :D Still quite worried that I haven’t found a bathing suit yet. I’m going through the swimwear racks in all the shops but all I can find is bikinis that look like 3 pieces of tree-leaves strung together, or those that accommodate a balloon party if you know what I mean. I wish I could pick and order from ASOS’ vast collection, but we can all expect that to arrive after I get back from Turkey. I guess the only choice now, is to knit a swimsuit since we all know that DIY is the answer to all wardrobe dilemmas. Let’s see what kind of yarn I brought home…

Mohair… hm.

How about this, bathing suit from the year 1858. VINTAGE!

  1. LOL at vintage bathing suit
    you’d rock it anyways – and the mohair bikini LOLL
    intense shoes shini-
    i love the whole mood of the outfit
    its so laidback cool which i neveeeeer can pull off =(
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx hope you have fun!

  2. You should try some sort of fabulous crochet knitted bikini.

    That swimsuit looks like it will drag you down into the depths of the ocean. No, not just a giant dress, wear the pants too!

  3. i know this is a HUGE stretch but i loved your gmarket translation guide(it was AWESOME) and i just found this new website: eruca.jp . i’m not sure what language it is and i’m definitely not sure how to use it….all i know is there are TONS of great clothes i have no idea how to order on the site.

    if by any means you can translate any/some of it, know someone who can, have any advice at all thatd be great.

    ps. LOVING those office shoes…may have to go get them

  4. that bathing suit is exactly what I was looking for this summer! haha, no just kidding, your shoes though!

  5. go with the vintage bathing suit.. LOL

    i hope you have fun in Turkey!

  6. I’ve watched quite a few movies that featured that era of bathing suits, I have to say, it’s so interesting! They even have those changing rooms that have stairs that lead into the water. ahaha… you gotta be rich to swim at the beach in those days! haha.

    I love your belt!

  7. What happened to your beautiful face?
    I love your outfit nonetheless.

  8. great idea to DIY the bathing suit! I’m courious now! :)

    Ah yes, that vintage bathing suit will do. ;D Btw, did you look in the mirror and realize how AMAZING those jeans look on you?! I’ve been obsessed with bloggers and their awesome jeans lately. ^^’

  11. LOL sure, why not. but i would go for the 1900’s style. the striped one? lol how come asos delivers in such long time?

  12. LOL oh man, the vintage bathing suit is ridiculous. But knowing your creative genius, I am confident you can make something out of that “suit”. haha And I am totally diggin’ your outfit. It’s so ’90s.

  13. :) you always wear some perfect pants…. i love them all :)

  14. ale się uśmiałam tym zdjęciem z 1858 ^^

  15. Seval

    Hahaha you are kinda right! :D sacrifice of the fish! well he knows where to do it anyways :) I hope you find/make the perfect swimsuit! I loved your ring and the gray-brown combination…

  16. That’s in Japanese :P Sadly I don’t speak the language, but surely I’ll let you know if I come across someone who’d be willing to translate it! (The site’s in English, but is it like Gmarket and doesn’t work beyond the fist page?)

  17. Cuz I’m in Warsaw :( It’s amazing in the first place that they even deliver here… aren’t striped swimwear only for men!?!? :P

  18. Hmmm. Interesting vintage bathing dress, though I think a) you won’t get a tan, b) in all possibility you will drown. And if that happens, no more Shini posts. :(

  19. Such a cool outfit. I really like the wash of the jean..perfect for summer.
