Making a Splash Pin Up Style + Giveaway!

Going through Fashion school I had a friend name Danisha, think of a bubbly little lady who giggled pretty much all throughout class and was always jamming to a popular song. That’s Danisha, no wonder why I was automatically drawn to seat by her and obviously had endless belly laughs and more often than not it was hard to concentrate in some of the classes we had together. Long story short  Danisha partnered up with another classmate Krista and founded Poppy Seeds – fashions that pop! Danisha is the Owner and Head Designer and Krista was the Assistant Designer and Patternmaker for a while, as of now Danisha runs the company by herself. What I love about her bathing suit brand is the retro style, I feel like the market is saturated with either teeny weeny bikinis or rather old-fashioned and dated looking suits for the more curvy ladies, Poppy Seeds suits are classy and fit all body types, making the skinny or the more plump ladies feel good about themselves with no need to bare it all!

I’m wearing the Lena Yellow Polka Dot gathered high waist bikini, it’s a style that is flattering if you have a bit of a tummy sticking out too ladies, just classy and timeless 🙂

I love to wear styles like these to lounge, have a glass of wine at the end of a summer afternoon while admiring the view…yes I’m here dreaming! Hahahaha hey it’s good to dream! I honestly was thinking about having a full on makeup and hair pin up style but the suit already spoke for all of it and at the end I just felt like being as natural as possible to let this baby shine, so how do you like this guys?!

    these are great – definitely not cookie cutter suit styles (seriously, a lot of suits look so much the same, whether you buy it at a high end boutique, a mall store, or target). love the variety!
