I’m gearing up for summer, but I’ve noticed there’s not much glamour at the beach these days, am I right? On one hand, I have one of those great ruched-to-high-heaven vintage swimsuits — the kind that Marilyn Monroe used to wear — aaaand on the other, I carry a ratty old beach towel I’ve had since probably the late ’80s. If I carried this Maslin & Co zebra hide towel with me, I’m sure I’d look the part.

I’m teasing myself a little because this is one of those items I’ve filed under the “you can’t really afford this, but it sure is pretty to look at, isn’t it?” category. (This kind of fierceness does not come cheap.) But I just adore the way it looks like a zebra hide rug and that little leather carrying strap is too chic. My half-birthday is June 11, in case anyone cares. Ahem.

      I feel the same! I just clicked the link and said to myself, "I would totally spend $30 on that one towel." Currently picking my chin off the desk after seeing the price tag. Sigh.
