Okay, I'm just going to put it out there... the bathing suit. Love it? Hate it? Dread it? What's your preference when it comes to summer time fun by the pool or on the beach and being comfortable? Maybe this little number for pool side:
No? Maybe for that 'black tie' pool party affair? Okay, I'm kidding! The faux diamonds may get in the way of a swan dive. Actually this was a costume that Bob Mackie designed for one of the shows in Las Vegas. Beautiful isn't it?
On a more serious note... back to the bathing suit. I love to to swim, I do admit. On a hot day there is nothing more refreshing to me than submerging my entire body into the water. Given that I have small children it's a good thing that I like it because they love it. The dilemma is what I wear with or over the bathing suit between the distance of home and whatever body of water I will be plunging into. Who wants to put more cloths on over the suit... that's no fun!
Solution... this one:
This is one of the new Bob Mackie items coming to QVC on an upcoming visit. I had shown the close up detail of the floral last week. It's a lovely feather weight drawstring caftan. I have it on over a cotton dress in the photo. Just to point out the versatility that it's more than a bathing suit cover up. Maybe you have a little sleeveless sundress that you love, but you don't like to show your arms... this will be perfect.
Check out the glamour... there is always some of that with a Bob Mackie piece. The artwork is gorgeous and there are several colors for this one. The front is a drawstring closer that gathers, so leave it loose for a roomier feel or pull it tighter for a more fitted look... whatever you like. Here is the detail:
All the gorgeous shades of blue will remind you of the colors of the sea side you may be sun bathing at this summer. Please keep in mind that this is not yet available at QVC... but it's coming and you want to be sure to tune in when it does... here are the times and dates for Bob's upcoming shows:
Wednesday, June 26, 2013 from 1 – 3 p.m. ET and Thursday, June 27, 2013 from 5 – 7 a.m., 6 – 8 p.m. ET. Be sure to tune in... and watch for more sneak peeks coming your way here, on Bob's Facebook page and at QVC.com.
