I have been planning this trip since I was about 16! I have always had an obsession with Italy but my family didn't go on holiday very much when I was growing up, so this is like a dream come true!

I'm Interailing so that I can see as many places as possible, staying in each place two nights, via airbnb with a few *day trips* in between:

Milan
Venice
Florence 
*Pisa*
Rome
Sorrento 
*Pompeii*

I want to do blog posts on each place; outfits, activities, apartments, etc. I find these type of posts so interesting on other blogs, a combination of fashion and lifestyle. I'm not sure if I will be able to post in Italy, but if not in 10 days I will have some amazing things to post!

My Triangl?? (DUPE)

My Triangl?? (DUPE)
My Triangl?? (DUPE)

White Bikini - Ali Express
Black Bikini - Ali Express

Okay, so there is a reason for the question mark in the title. Like everyone else in the entire world I am obsessed with Triangl Bikini, however with the price of the swimwear, shipping and customs charges to the U.K. They are almost £100, so I have been looking for a dupe for sooooo long. Thats when I found these on Ali Express, for a huge fraction of the price.

There is so much to say about these that I almost considered doing a youtube video, however I am not quite ballsy enough for that! The white one was an amazing match, only two differences were some metal beads at the end of the strings, which I actually really liked, and there were two labels on the front of the bikini saying 'brakini' which I just cut off, other then that its a perfect match. I got it in a small as I am an 8 on top and 10 on bottom, and it fits perfectly, Triangl do say to size up as neoprene fabric has little stretch in it but this one fit perfect.

This second one I was a little disappointed with, I love how the black Triangl bikinis usually look like leather, however when I received this dupe it wasn't at all shiny but instead had a matte finish. I don't hate it but It's just not what I expected. It does however have 'Triangl' printed on the zip and did come in a plastic covering with the Triangl logo on. If I had gone for one of the other coloures then it would of been no different from the original.

Neither of these come with the neoprene bag, but that isn't really something I would use anyway. Obviously these are from china so you have to allow up to a month+ for them to come, depending on the seller but at £16, I wouldn't be complaining.
