January 2010


Warm weather is just around the corner …. really, it is!  Just in time we have new suits from Fables by Barrie … that are cute cute cute!  Check out the Sailor Bernie Super bright and shimmery low-rise red bottom with a white trimmed navy blue skirt overlay, accented with a white anchor button with a red anchor. Made of 4-way stretch nylon/spandex and full lined, couled with a shimmery red halter top accented with contrast white band and blue ruffled under bust. Made of 4-way stretch nylon/spandex and fully lined with removable padding and hook closure in back.   And modeled of course by Bernie Dexter herself!

And, I love this adorable high waisted swimsuit by Sugar Dolls …A nod to the all American Pin-up Queens of yester year! This bikini has a high waisted bottom with shirred anchor print lycra in the front, made to look like a skirt but attached to shorts. The top has shirred red and white stripes, lined with stiff interfacing and boning to hold in the girls and has a vintage 50’s feel. Thick stretch denim ties for added support. Great for those who are well endowed!

Ashley Greene has quite a resume. She is the face of Stop Staring an online Vintage and Retro inspired clothing shop, and one of the stars (Alice) of the Twilight series.

This is Ashley Greene in a body paint “skinsuit” on the Turks and Caicos islands for a new SoBe commercial. Photos from the shoot will appear in the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

The 22-year-old actress modeled two of make-up artist Joanne Gairs hand-painted SoBe skinsuits which were inspired by the new, exotic SoBe Lifewater 0 calorie flavors Cherimoya Punch and Strawberry Dragonfruit. The skinsuits take their design cues from the SoBe bottles from the painted scales right down to SoBes signature lizard.

Ashley shared, Being a part of the SoBe skinsuit shoot in the Turks and Caicos was amazing. It took the artist 12 hours to paint the SoBe scales on each skinsuit, but it was totally worth it. Its an experience Ill never forget.

If you want to try and win a trip, you can enter SoBes Zero Calories, Zero Inhibitions Vegas Sweepstakes which runs from now until Friday, January 29 on SoBe.com. One winner and three friends will receive tickets to the invite-only 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition launch in Las Vegas.

I hate to be the one … but …. New Year’s Resolution time.  What time is it?  Time to start the diet.  And, when I tell you the Body Magic shapewear makes you “feel good” physically, I’m not kidding. It actually feels great being “firmed up” and all your insides in place : ) Not to mention — losing the few inches in minutes helps you get mentally motivated to lose the weight (not matter how little or how much).


This particular shaper does get great reviews. And, it is medical grade compression material. Same thing the doctors and plastic surgeons use. It’s comfortable and works.

Measuring Instructions
1- BREAST (measure around back and your breast. This is not a tight measurement)
2- THORAX (measure directly under your breast and that one is to be a very tight measurement)
3- WAIST (measurement about 2 inches above your navel)
4- LOWER BELLY (if you have a lot of lower belly tissue measure that as well)
HIPS (measure around the largest part of your hips)
