the sparkly life: Would You Wear This $500 Bathing Suit?

Would You Wear This $500 Bathing Suit?

Recently, my friend, style and beauty expert Jenn Falik, posted about her all-time favorite bathing suit. It's this Eres Cassiopee one-piece, and Jenn is obsessed. She said the suit is flattering, magically stays in place even though it's strapless, and even turned her tummy into "something that resembled a six pack." It also costs $480. Yep, nearly $500 for one swimsuit

Now, to be fair, Jenn fully acknowledges that the price is ridiculously steep. But she also makes a good point: Whether you buy $200-suit after $200-suit or $40-suit after $40-suit, if you're not really happy with any of them (I'm so guilty of this), maybe it makes sense to drop a bit more for one perfect suit that's going to make you feel f'ing fabulous.

I don't know. But...I'm intrigued. And seriously thinking about it now. I haven't pulled the trigger yet, but I have a vacation coming up next month (hallelujah!), and an ultra-flattering suit is high on my wish list. So, I'm considering going for this deep gray or maybe even this pretty emerald. (I mean, not only is the green my favorite color, but the shade is called "Glitter." Hel-lo?!)

Now I'd love to hear your opinion. Would you ever spend $500 on a bathing suit? Or is that just nuts?

I get $20 suits from surf shops and no, I would not be doing this. But hell, if you're going to wear it forever, it'd be worth it.

Thanks for the shout-out, let me know if you decide to take the plunge...I was so horrified by the price tag I avoided buying myself a second one for 6 years, and have a basket full of once-worn suits to prove it :) xx
