Sauipe Swimwear Review

Sauipe Swimwear is inspired by Costa do Sauipe, one of the most beautiful and evocative tourist destinations in Brazil. Costa do Sauipe is located on the north coast of Bahia, a state rich in history, culture and hospitable people. The birth place of renowned artists such as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Bahia has shared with the world its legendary music, foods, colors and the best beaches one could envision.

After one memorable trip to Costa do Sauipe in 2006, they were inspired to begin their journey and to develop a line of swimwear that reflects the rich natural beauty of Bahia’s beaches and people. Their old time love for swimwear had found a muse, and their hearts were set on the name SAUIPE as a tribute to this idyllic stretch of white sandy beaches and clear turquoise water, framed by coconut trees along the coast.


Swimsuit season is coming to an abrupt end in most states in the United States, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't stop thinking about you're going to wear during the next swimsuit season.

Sauipe Swimwear recently gave me the opportunity to try out their Montego Bay 3027 One-Piece Swimsuit ($144) in Black. I originally opted for the White (was featured in Shape Magazine's June 2011 issue!) since I wanted to try something different, but I love the Black just as much since I like wearing this color. Not only most find this color to be slenderizing, but I like the sheer simplicity and sophistication that it exudes. I wasn't the least disappointed with my selection, because it has a classic Old Hollywood glamour feel to it. Think of Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and Marilyn Monroe. These leading ladies shamelessly flaunted their va-va-voom curves on the beach, which were accentuated by bathing suits with flattering ruching and ample seat coverage. However, you don't have to be curvy to wear these type of swimsuits. They even give boyish figures more of an hourglass shape.

I also adore the Montego Bay 3053 and 3054 and Montego Bay 3016 and 3015 styles.

Click here to view their collection. Also, refer to their Fit Guide and select your favorite style for your top, bottom, or one-piece. Post your choices on the Rafflecopter form.





Sign the Rafflecopter form above.

The core philosophy of the Skye Swimwear brand is to provide the modern woman with elegant, contemporary swimwear that appeals to her personal style and body type. With a meticulous focus on comfort and fit, they design a wide variety of styles with the understanding that women have different shapes and figures that make them all uniquely beautiful.


Skye Swimwear recently gave me the opportunity to try out their Molded Cup Bandeau and Hi Profile Bikini from their Line Up Collection. I couldn't be more happier with their selection, because this style is sophisticated yet playfully sexy. It features a rich combination of gold, black, and white. The bandeau fits me perfectly and isn't flattening like most bandeau tops. I also like that it stays put without me having to re-adjust it. The bottom is extremely flattering and provides the right amount of coverage, while still keeping it's sexy appeal.

I like that all the collections at Skye Swimwear are offered in a variety of different cuts, whether you're wanting a Marilyn bandeau-inspired bikini top with a foldover boyleg or a classic one-piece - they have it in the color or print that you want! They also offer beautiful cover-ups that would make a versatile piece in everyone’s vacation wardrobe.

Denim Done Right: Jockey Person to Person

Shopping for jeans that fit perfectly can be frustrating. Before you head to the dressing room yet again, follow these guidelines from Senior Designer for Jockey Person to Person, Sunil Ramchandani to help you find your perfect denim (without all the bells and whistles.)


1. Fabric:
A poly cotton blend will help retain the shape and color much longer. Hand washing will allow the material to last much longer as well. A mid weight, 8 to 11 ounces per yard, will be perfect for year round wear.

2. Fit: The waist should have enough room to fit one finger in between the pants and yourself and the denim must be fitted through the thigh and knee. The rise should be 1” below your belly button but no more than 3”.

3. Length:
If you are wearing flats, your jeans should touch the floor. With heels, the pant leg should be ¼” above the floor on your back heel. Make sure to have separate pairs to wear with heels and flats.

4. Leg Shapes and Body Types: Bootlegs work best on Pear and Hourglass body shapes. Straight legs work best on Apple and Pencil body shapes. Wide legs work best on Strawberry shapes.

5. Camouflage Your Flaws:
If you have a slight belly, you should go for a stretch fit and wear it with longer length, un-tucked boots. If you have a large bottom, go for a slightly lower rise with simple back pockets. Big Hips, the boot cut is your friend as it will help rebalance your figure.

Jordan Jefferies Collection Online Boutique - Triple Cross Couture Collection Review

Owner, designer, and creator of the Triple Cross Couture Collection, Michelle Pawlik Ender, has been the driving force behind her designs since age 16. Michelle's unique sense of style is evident in every hand crafted item. Triple Cross Couture has been showcased in several boutiques throughout South Texas. Triple Cross Couture Collection originally only featured custom jewelry but recently expanded, along with Michelle's family.


I enjoy wearing hair bows every now and then, because they easily incorporate in my fun, girly, and quirky style. Anyone that knows me well knows that I adore anything frilly, pink, lacey, or pretty! Therefore, I was excited when Jordan Jefferies Collection Online Boutique recently contacted about their new collaboration with Triple Cross Couture Collection. For my review, I selected the two Bowtique Bows, Cheetah Girl and Baby Cheetah (both are $12.50). I was not the least disappointed with either selection and recently donned the the Baby Cheetah, which attracted a lot of attention.

These bows are individually designed, so each one will carry it's own unique flair. All bow are made with a whimsical ribbon and have a little bit of bling or other adornments. You're able to choose attachment types (headbands, clips, or barrettes). The selection of styles include everything from animal print to "back to school", and all other things in between. Custom orders are welcome. These are a perfect accessory for you or the little princess in your life. Each Bowtique Bow retails for $12.50 each.
