A Bikini A Day, The Butterfly Way
We’re in the thick of summer and what better way to cool down than in a thin little bikini?
Whether you’re lying on the beach, lounging at the pool or looking cute in the house, you can find a bikini a day in this fashion stash, courtesy of Torricia, designer of Mariposa Sexy Girl Swimwear, based in Birmingham, Alabama.
Torricia has always been a connoisseur of bikinis and decided instead of buying them, she’d utilize her sewing skills to make swimwear for herself. “I was getting compliments on my suits, so then I thought, ‘hmmm, why don’t I start making them for other people’,” Torricia says.
And, she wanted her line to represent tropical people and their environment. “I love Ankara print . . . I love the colors that African and people of color use in their garments and I wanted to infuse that in my line.
Also inspired by her love of butterflies, Torricia named her line, Mariposa, Spanish for butterfly. She names each bathing suit after the scientific name of a different butterfly. And, we can fly with that. Butterflies and bikinis represent freedom and beauty, perfect for our motto: the freedom to be beautiful.
Chiomara is very romantic. The bold colored flowers and blue background are reminiscent of the beautiful scenery and clear blue skies of summer.
When it’s time for romance, you want all your bases covered. Your hair is one of those bases, so look to our OooLaLocks Hair Box to keep your hair fully charmed.
Viardi represents conceptual style. It’s modern art meeting tranquility and how it feels to walk along a palm tree scattered beach with the waves from the ocean flowing in the background.
With this pretty little number, you’ll want to make sure you’re glowing. Our Spanish Almond Regrowth Oil is great for protecting your skin while also making it radiant.
