Sail Away

Fleur-de-lis bikini (top shown). Vintage Gloria Sachs skirt. Vintage tortoiseshell sunglasses. Vintage straw hat (on ground). Vintage costume pearl earrings. Vintage costume gold necklace. Vintage costume stone & Les Néréides crystal (a souvenir from my trip to Paris) bracelets. Marc Jacobs 'Ursula' bag (on ground).

A few hours in the sky transported me from winter wonderland to island-in-the-sun St. Thomas... I strolled along the water's edge in a red fleur-de-lis string bikini & donned a brown paisley skirt as a coverup to lunch at the poolside restaurant. My other warm weather accessories include: a straw hat, a beach bag (I shopped my closet for an old green Marc Jacobs patent leather bowler) & an Agatha Christie mystery. A drawerful of jewelry + sunscreen don't mix well, but a few delicate baubles aren't remiss sparkling in the sun.
