AT THE COPA, COPACABANA...

In the back of my closet, still in the old flat, there is a bag of fabric waiting since last summer to be transformed into vintage styled swimsuits. Now, as in Now-now would be about the time to get it done, heat waves never last that long over here, but today when visiting Punavuoren Putiikki I realized I could save myself the effort and just grab one of Tyra's the lovely Miss Maxwell / Miranda Lingerie pieces to go instead! (Sorry Ina, I will get your suit done though!)

You may remember the collection made out of vintage fabrics from last year?

Here are the swimsuits of this season - don't they just scream piña coladas, bossa nova and that perfect spot in the chair, under the parasol? -I think I need (as in really need, you know, for real :) the green dotted bikini:

You can buy these and other creations of Tyra Therman's by visiting Punavuoren Putiikki, or if you're far away, by contacting her.
You can also check out Made By, not for the swimsuits though, but more on that later!

(These pics really put me in the mood for Jenny Woo's Glitter Grill, the The Tiki-Tiki-Tropical party tonight. I will however spend the evening and early night here in the warm and sweaty harbour (not complaining though, that much at least, few work days beat these warm evenings by the sea). But if you're not too far away you will still be able to make it for the tropical cocktails and tiki-inspired burlesque acts, first set starts about now!)

Love these! May just have to contact her to see if she'd make one and send it to the States. Thanks for sharing.

Black one is my favourite, not that I'm nowhere near in swimsuit condition. This babyweight (I think I'm allowed to call extra weight that till lil one goes to school, what do you think?)
