Happy Sunday

Due to its ability to elicited both terror and full on glee in me, the Zipper was always my favorite ride as a kid.

And while the ones I rode at the Blue Hill Fair didn’t look quite as ethereal as this (understatement of the year), I can’t help but feel a little nostalgic looking at this shot…

What was your favorite fair ride?

On a side note…

The whimsical colors remind me of our newest addition from  Elle Macpherson Intimates…the Dentelle Contour.

This newbie is just as pretty as the Dentelle Underwire, but with a light lining for coverage and a little push up.
