Mall Find | Swimming Trunks

June 7, 2012

Being a fashion lover around here sure puts the right side of a brain to work. You know the drill: one mall, very few shops (most sell the discounted leftovers from the U.S. of A. stores), trends show up months later, etc. And I mean, c’mon, as fun as thrifting can be there’s nothing like le smell of le new.

Polkadot swimming trunksThis is the first of a series of posts about items found in unexpected places which, in my case, includes malls.

Item: Swimming trunks.

Where? Beachwear section of the only legit department store in Honduras, Tiendas Carrion.

Black & white polkadotted shorts

Their potential was hidden by the tacky pink & blue options (I say tacky, but I’m sure someone else could make them work). My sister convinced me not to buy them but my stubborn self returned for them the very next day.

Casual outfit with swimming trunksThe polka dots reminded me of the cute Commes des Garçons pouches & wallets, but the shorts were less than a 10th of the price…under $7!

Fabi Pina outfit - swimming shorts To make it less beach and more sunday lunch, I dressed them up with platform heels and a white button-up. Good enough for siblings not to feel embarrassed about taking my pictures in public. 🙂
