Drooling Over Bathing Suits. Again.

My darling Shaun turns 30 this weekend. To celebrate, I'm taking him to Huntington Beach, CA for three days. We're so excited! One of my most favorite people in the entire world, Jimmy, lives in Los Alamitos and said we could stay at his place. We plan on doing a lot of exploring, going to a tattoo convention on an old ship, and just being drunken beach bums the rest of the time.

My only problem? I've been wearing the same bikini for the last 6(!) summers. I'm ready for some thing new! I know exactly want I want, but figured I had screwed myself by deciding on it just five days before we leave. I spend all day yesterday trying to figure out where in Denver I could find something black and vintage-style, like these.

I had pretty much decided that I was going to have to brave the mall on Thursday to see what I could find. Then, right before I went to bed last night, I remembered something...

My soon-to-be-bathing-suit.

I've had this thing since 2002, just tucked away in my (ridiculously overflowing) lingerie drawer. I found it at Victoria's Secret during my Bettie Page obsession and never ended up wearing it for anything. It's not meant to be a bathing suit, but I can't swim so I'm not planning on getting too far into the water. It's a medium so it's a little loose, but all it needs is a halter strap and some boob support and it'll be perfect!

So, dear readers, is there anything in Huntington Beach that we shouldn't miss? Thrift stores? Antique stores? Delicious vegetarian-friendly restaurants? Give me the inside scoop!
