I mentioned in my sales-shopping post that I was on the hunt for a bikini. I have been obsessing over the “reduced” items in the Net-a-Porter sale and have narrowed my choices down to three. I’m dilly-dallying, and all of them will probably get snapped up before I even make my decision! I could always buy all three, but I’m on a bit of a self-imposed spending-ban for the rest of the month. OK, week. OK, day.
Contestant number one, pictured above, is a cute little two-piece from Marni. Reduced from £135 to £54, which, to be honest, is probably the main appeal. I can’t resist a good price-reduction! I like the retro pattern and the flattering shades and there are no metal hoops and attachments that will heat up in the sun and brand my skin. Marni, £54, Net-a-Porter
Contestant number two, a sunny print from Diane von Furstenberg, Queen of the Wrap-Dress. Looks to be a flattering shape? Top is £42.50 down from £85, bottoms are £38.50, Net-a-Porter
The final contestant is a black crochet bikini designed by Claudia Schiffer. I think you’d have to have a good feel of this one to appreciate the crochet-ness of it, but I love the slightly high waist on the bottoms. £265 down to £79.50, Net-a-Porter.
Right. Which one? Or two? Or, indeed, three? I’m leaning towards contestants one and three, but two is bright and cheery – ARGH! Why am I so bloody indecisive?
