One Piece Royale

Pin It

Ever since Ursula Andress emerged from the ocean in Dr. No sporting that bikini, a belted swimsuit just says Bond girl to me. That’s why when I saw this Carmen Marc Valvo two-toned suit I instantly fell in love with its sexy, vintage glamour.

The black lower half is super slimming, especially as it fades into the belt, and the peekaboo front and back keep the look youthful. For an afternoon bike ride to the beach club, I paired it with a Carmen Marc Valvo sheer pleated chiffon skirt. Whenever it caught the wind I felt myself channeling Honey Ryder again, strutting confidently along the shore.tara-lipinski-one-piece-kiawah7tara-lipinski-one-piece-kiawah8tara-lipinski-one-piece-kiawah11tara-lipinski-one-piece-kiawah14tara-lipinski-one-piece-kiawah13tara-lipinski-one-piece-kiawah12

Clearly I’ve got the outfit nailed. Now all I need is a hero.

Bathing suit, skirt, sunglasses
