Gretchen Christine for Luxe by Lisa Vogel Swimwear

One of my fave suits from the collection….the nude blinged tankini!

I am a HUGE Real Housewives of Orange County fan. So when Swimspot asked me to join them for the launch of the Gretchen Christine Rossi for Luxe by Lisa Vogel collaboration, I HAD to go! We were served delicious cupcakes from frostings cupcakes (seriously….yum….I devoured a lemon cupcake) and sipped on “champs” while checking out the new swimsuit line. Both Gretchen & Slade were sweethearts and real down to earth. I had no idea what to expect but it was a pleasant surprise. I also got to chat with Lisa Vogel (the designer behind the Luxe line) and love that she is a mom of two who knows how to design a stylish & sexy swimsuit that is mom approved. She worked along side with Gretchen to create this FAB new line and I am totally crushing on this nude blinged tankini! We are heading to Palm Springs next month and I would totally throw on my denim cut-offs with that suit and hit the town!

P.S. kind of kicking myself for not asking if Gretchen was wearing her own makeup line because DANG…girls skin/makeup looked amazing.

P.S.S. (or is it P.P.S.) A big thank you to my friend Melissa who came with me and snapped these pics! xo

    Great post. I was at the launch as well and I did ask about her make-up. She was wearing it and she always wears it she said. That’s what’s different about Gretchen, she seems to stand behind everything thing she does, meaning she actually uses and the wears the products. What’s even more amazing to me was that she does her own make-up on a regular basis.. this girl has mad skills.. Thanks for your post. xoxo
