When I ordered them I thought that they had blue trim, but they have purple, which I think is a very good omen considering my new bikini will be Black with purple glitter - the picture below is the swatch of fabric, it has both thick and thin glitter swirls, the designer thinks it won't need much decorating, but me being me, I will still stone it! And it's the same colour way as the shoes. I realised that I'm not really a red person and I've been wearing black and dark purples a lot this year.
And this is the red bikini - really shiny, I do love it, but I'm not sure about it for Nationals. The regional show the week after will be good for it, as a bit of a test run for a colour I'm not sure about. If I was brave I'd post a pic of me in the suit, but I'm not... and I'm pasty white with lots of re-growth in my blond hair, NOT COMP READY AND NOT PIC WORTHY ... YET
