Norma Kamali turquoise mesh bill mio on sale for $175 (plus $56 shipping and probably around £35 import)?
It's half price.... Why am I hesitating???

What is it?!!

Pancakeflipper Fri 05-Apr-13 18:53:32

I feel totally inadequate here - haven't a clue what you are on about but excited with you cos it is half price. So buy buy buy..,

yes buy buy buy (what is it?)

If you've got the body to get away with what I think that is (and the cash) then go for it.

Well I googled to see what it was and this link has it cheaper. But what is it? Underwear? Swimwear?

piprabbit Fri 05-Apr-13 19:00:27

I think it's this one in torquise, not the shiny one.

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 19:00:54

i think you are speaking a differnet language

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 19:01:14

god no

its a bit grannyish

dexter73 Fri 05-Apr-13 19:03:46

In that case no.

piprabbit Fri 05-Apr-13 19:04:02

It's a see-through mesh swimsuit. Not sure the world would be ready to see my granny in it.

MisterUdagawa Fri 05-Apr-13 19:04:32

looks opaque here

cardamomginger Fri 05-Apr-13 19:10:48

yes - it's pippa's one. not seethrough! it's lined.
i like pancake and peggaty's take on this!
don't know though. sale stuff is non-returnable, and that always worries me. could sell it on ebay if it's a disaster....

HollyBollyBooBoo Fri 05-Apr-13 19:11:43

Er no, minging!

MissBeehivingUnderTheMistletoe Fri 05-Apr-13 19:23:00

No, it doesn't look flattering.

malteserzz Fri 05-Apr-13 19:24:48

No ! Expensive and I don't really like it sorry !

YourHandInMyHand Fri 05-Apr-13 19:30:41

Ooh NO! Don't do it.

cardamomginger Fri 05-Apr-13 19:43:30

No??? I thought it was all a bit 1950's glamour....

cardamomginger Fri 05-Apr-13 19:43:57

[sniffs sadly]

PebblePots Fri 05-Apr-13 19:47:23

Waaaay to expensive for a swim suit, reality check op smile

OneMoreGo Fri 05-Apr-13 19:47:43

That is quite foul really, and I would hesitate if it was about a tenner in TK Maxx. But each to their own, innit.

MissBeehivingUnderTheMistletoe Fri 05-Apr-13 19:48:00

You can spend the money you've saved on something else <silver lining>

santamarianovella Fri 05-Apr-13 20:04:19

God no! first of all i really dont think its worth $175 ,and if you add shipping and import it comes to around 185 quid! you can get much nicer ones from melissa odabash or tory burch.

AmberNectarine Fri 05-Apr-13 23:25:07

Christ no, get something from Eres if you want to spend £££ on a swimsuit. I quite like some of the Norma Kamali Ruched skirts but not on a swimsuit.
