A long long time ago, when desperate for something to use as a bathing suit bottom, I bought some black girdle underpants at Woolworth’s. Yep, Woolworth’s. Thus marked the beginning of my mix and match bikini wearing and it’s been going strong ever since.

Best part about it is, I get to pick and choose what tops and bottoms fit (and look) the best, while also being pretty damned sure that no one else on the beach is going to stroll by in the same exact suit. Which is more important to me than I care to admit.

I’ve had these beautiful bottoms from Araks for several years now, and loved them dearly, but it is only in the past week that I have found them a suitable mate.

Enter Maria Cornejo– artist, designer, genius– and her new line of swimwear. I found the perfect perfect top. Beautiful color and cut, and it actually stays on in the ocean (nothing worse than diving into the surf fully clothed and then coming up empty, so to speak.)

There are equally amazing one piece suits as well… it’s very much worth a trip to the shop if you are in NYC (or LA), as many of the styles aren’t available online. Maybe you already have the perfect suit. But if you’re anything like me, you’ll appreciate checking this out. Cause there’s nothing like a good bathing suit to make you feel like a grownup, in the best of ways.
