Yes, it's every big girls favorite time of year......swimsuit season. I know, hold back your excitement. I already knew in my mind that I would have to find a new suit for the cruise in December which wasn't so bad since I have a little time until then but I have been invited to go to Duck, NC with my extended step family for a few days in August. Now before you say, "What's the big deal?", I will tell you what the big deal is. My entire step family is petite with super cute figures and let's face it, when I am around them I feel like a heifer. Most of them do not reach above 5'4 and they have no body fat, never sweat and can wear the cutest of clothes and the sassiest of heels while I clump along beside them in flats sweating my makeup off and ruining my freshly styled hair.
So in my desperation to try my darnedest to at least look stylish next to them I began BIG GIRL SWIMSUIT HUNT 2008. And this is what I found:
Isn't it just stunning?! It reminds me of a time when sirens of the silver screen came equipped with curves for days and those curves were celebrated if not coveted. So I am saving up my pennies so that I can, at least for one day, feel like Marilyn Monroe.
