[ENG] My summer vacation started in Bali. My dream destination. Therefore the choice of swimsuit was priority on my shopping list. It's been a while I am looking for retro hight wasited bikini but I wasn't sure if this model can benefit me or not. At the same time I was craving for checker prints. The Topshop I had seen in Brisbane (Australia) had a full suit in pastel blue and white checkered swimwear but probably my jet lag at that moment braked my buying impulse. The day before leaving on vacation, as I already recounted in a previous post (see here), I went to the mall to buy just a pair of shorts and I come back with an entirely new wardrobe. This outfit I have found in River Island and I couldn't resist it. I am not saying that I didn't have any doubts about the "granny" model but I liked it so much that I took all the risk. Arrived on the island and as soon as I put on my new swiwear I took some instagram pictures (of course) at the pool. The reactions haven't left waiting. On the one hand, lots of friends and colleagues from instagram were excited and interested where they can find this swimsuit. On the other hand my husband's disapointed look. At any point he was expecting me to "reinvent" form sexy to grandmother style (especially on Balinese beach :D). Dosen't matter how much I (or wem girls) might like retro swimsuits and whatever my explanations in terms of fashion / trends my husband or any man om earth will put this item in Man Repeller category. I mean, what might delight us, women could easily repugnant men. Nothing new on earth, we all know this story :)
Have a Lovely Summer !
[RO] Vacanta mea de vara a inceput in Bali. Destinatia mea de vis. De aceea alegerea costumului de baie a fost priority pe lista de shopping. De ceva vreme imi tot doream un costum retro dar nu eram sigura daca acest model ma poate avantaja sau nu. In acelasi timp mi s-a pus pata si pe carouri. Vazusem in Topshop Brisbane (Australia) un costum intreg pe carouri albastru pastelat si alb dar probabil jet lag-ul mi-a franat impulsul de cumparare. La o zi inainte de plecare in vacanta, asa cum am povestit intr-o postare precedenta (vezi aici), am iesit pana la mall sa imi cumpar pantaloni scurti si m-am intors cu o garderoba absolut noua. Acest costumas il gasisem la River Island si n-am putut sa-i rezist. Nu zic ca nu am avut dubii in privinta modelului ("bunicutza") dar mi-a placut atat de mult incat mi-am luat tot riscul. Ajunsa pe insula, de indata ce mi l-am pus la piscina si am facut cateva instagram poze (binenteles) reactiile nu s-au lasat asteptate. Pe de o parte, prietenii si colegii de pe instagram incantati si mai ales interesati unde pot gasi si ei costumul de baie. Pe de alta parte privirea buimacita a sotului meu, care nicidecum nu s-a asteptat sa ma "reinventez" de la sexy la bunicuta tocmai in Bali. Cat de mult nu mi-ar placea mie (sau noua, fetelor) costumul retro si indiferent de explicatiile mele in materie fashion/trenduri aceasta piesa o putem pune cu siguranta la categoria Man Repeller. Adica, piese, care ne incanta pe noi, femeile si repugna barbatii. Moda pe NEintelesul barbatilor :)
O vacanta cat mai frumoasa,
