I did it.
I finally did it.
And I am so beyond excited!
I bought the dream bikini I shared with you a post or two ago. It’s everything I have ever dreamed of! Killer color (my fave, coral!), killer cut (high waisted, with ruffles on top to balance out my wide hips, and to totally bring out my inner Marilyn Monroe), and it has inter-changeable straps that can be racer-back or straight style.
Albion Fit caught my eye originally on Pinterest a few months ago, and I have been obsessing over two or three swimsuits from their website ever since!
The suit below was a close second (like, suuuuuper close, except for my realizing I am working on a tight budget while I save for being on disability in Aug/Sept, and saving for spending money for Hawaii, too!), but I have a super cute one piece, so I said “Nah!” Truth is, if all goes well, I’ll probably order it in the beginning of October. A girl has GOT to have options, Variety is the spice of life, and all that. 🙂
Turns out, they were having a 30% off sale for the 4th of July weekend, so it seemed as good a time as any to purchase the suit. My bi-lateral thigh lift is officially scheduled for August 19th of this year, and Alex and I are set to go to Hawaii October 26th. I ordered the suit now, under the justification that only my thigh measurements will change, but the suit will only look BETTER after. This way, I also have plenty of time to exchange sizes, if needed, as well!
While Albion swimwear is a bit pricier than your average Target or Old Navy suit, I feel like having that stand-out piece that really has some personality, and great quality and construction is worth it. With my discount code, I only paid about $30 extra for the suit, and if you divide the price of the suit by the number of times you’ll rock it at the pool or beach, it is sooo worth it! Now that I have settled into what is going to be my “regular” sizes, I am trying not to pinch pennies so much when it comes to quality garments…but I will still use every promo code, discount code, and coupon I can find! It’s a habit I’ll NEVER lose! Lol.
Albion Fit kind enough to extend a promo offer to all of my SeeSondraSlim readers! Until 7/14/2013, you can enter “SeeSondra10” at checkout to receive $10 off ANY Albion Fit purchase!! Not only do they have adorable swimsuits (especially if you fancy retro styles and cuts, such as I do), but they have awesome yoga/workout wear as well!
I shall anxiously be awaiting that moment when I get home and see if I have any packages for the next few weeks! Between ordering Alex’s birthday gifts, and the stuff for the Bachelorette party, and now this? I’m gonna feel like the most popular girl in the world when the mail starts rolling in!
That’s all for now, but if you’d be so kind, leave me a comment letting me know which Albion Fit swimsuit is YOUR favorite!
‘Til Next Time!
