I think the first time I saw a monokini was on this GQ cover. I’m not a huge fan of Jessica Alba. She’s alright. Cute face. But I swooned over the monokini she had on. I’m sure her summer tan and sculpted abs didn’t help either.
Soon after I wandered over to my nearest Target to check out the spread. I found a black bandeau monokini by Xhilaration that made me feel incredibly stylish and sexy! I wasn’t too keen on paying the full price though, so I decided to wait.
I lusted after that monokini for an entire year. I even set up a web shopping alert to snag it when it finally went on sale. In the end, it sold out. It seemed I was too stubborn for my own good.
Fast foward to today. I drove over to my favorite thrift shop (my local ‘Target discount store’) and lo and behold!
The thrifting gods answered my prayers!
Price: $6 with original tag
(Cue the choir of angels)
