One Coco: D’Havia Designs

I have a beach problem, to me it’s not really a problem, but here’s the real problem: for the beach you need swimsuits, I always want new ones. As a girl after my mom, I like getting new clothes, so I’d followed a lot of Jamaican designers over my years of being on Instagram. Today, I want to introduce you to D’HAVIA Designs, her XO Swimsuit is the newest addition to my Coco Basket.

I saw this swimsuit on the D’HAVIA Instagram page months ago, in the colour red, and it looked so good I just had to have it. Seeing that I’m on a budget, I took my time and saved for it; then the day came when I ordered it, in one of my favourite colours, Turquoise.

It was months after I purchased it that I got a chance to wear it, but eventually I got to the beach, and I was pleased. It came in a clear bag that was super useful; at the beach I placed the wet bikini back into the bag for convenient carrying.

Can you tell this is my favourite colour? I’ve had my beach cover-up for over a year, it is by Momo Penelli, and I had to get that colour. This swimsuit is a little sexy one and I like it, I didn’t expect the tube top to be that small but I don’t really mind. What drew me to it was the eyelets with the lace on the tube top and the sides of the bikini. Another point that drew me to it was that the bottom was high-waist and I had no bikinis like that.

I really like this swimsuit, I felt great in it, and it looked great on me. The piece was sewn very well, and I liked the D’HAVIA emblem attached to it, that showed me her work is well branded. A point to note: When putting it on for the first time, you may need help lacing up the sides of the bikini bottom. I’ll have to rate it a 3.5/5, because there is an inconvenience, after the beach I’d left my swimsuit to dry and I saw that rust began to form around all the eyelets and stain the fabric in that area. I didn’t expect that to happen, and I was upset because I love the swimsuit. It’s still tarnished right now but I will try a white vinegar trick. Check out her social media pages nonetheless because she has a plethora of designs to chose from.

One Coco: Crochet Eye Candy

Another one! 🙂 I bought a red CARAMEL Crop Top from Crochet Eye Candy recently, and I’m glad to see my list is moving. Click here to see the five items (from Jamaican Brands) that I plan to get by December. The crop top came in a silver package, and to my surprise I got a pack of flash tattoos for free.

I haven’t worn it out yet but I love it! and I made a great choice going with the red. I might have to get a bikini from Crochet Eye Candy as well, because they displayed some new designs recently and they look great.
