Personal Shopper: Sexy Eyelet Handkerchief Bikini for Jenn

Jenn writes: "My Lovely Outblushers,

You helped me find a bracelet for my wedding & lookalike pucci's but now I have another request because you rock so hard. That, and I'm so tired of searching the blackhole that is the Internet for this bikini!!!!

I'm sure you get these all the time since the explosion of pinterest, but I'm in love with this suit that has a link that sends me to nowheresville (population: 1). I think about it all the time, my husband may be jealous. But it's so different and so perfect and would be so ideal to chase my toddler around a beach/pool without the occasional nip slip... And it's not like that fringe crap that I see everywhere on bikinis now. (sorry if you like that stuff, I'm just not that hipster)

Here's the pinterest link.

I can't bring myself to spend more than $100 on a suit... But even if you do find it, I will worship the ground you walk on, so please let me know regardless. As of right now I think this suit is hanging out with leprechauns riding unicorns up & down the beach.

I'm a small on top, medium on bottom or a size 4... Suits can be weird size wise.

Happy hunting chicas! Hope you have more luck than I have!

I believe a woman can never have too many little black dresses, as black is always chic and sexy. I'm not afraid to wear beautiful bright colors and keep things fun and fresh. If you're looking for the perfect pair of heels to complete your outfit, or need new rings, earrings, necklaces, and bangles, I'm your girl.

This one has a bold print, but the shape is similar:

This one is cheaper than the original at $170, but not by much. Still mimics the silhouette very well:

Hi Jenn! I'm so happy we were able to help. And I would do the exact same thing you are doing - order the top from ASOS and find white string tie bottoms (which should be nice and easy). Enjoy your new suit! xo

Hi! So i was wondering if I could send you guys a picture of a dress i am IN LOVE WITH and you could find a less expensive but similar looking version? I am a college student and want this dress for my 3rd anniversary dinner with my boyfriend, so it would mean sooo much to me!
