The Sexy Retro Swim Look

I've started swimming at the pool at my gym in Soho called The Third Space. I feel like I found my element. I've tried the elliptical, running, all the machines, and they just don't make me happy. I grew up in California swimming in the pool in our backyard, the ocean, my bathtub, anywhere I could. When I was two I even swam in the fountain/pool at The Getty and was pulled out by a very embarrassed mother. I'm doing a combination of yoga, swim and weight lifting. It's really fun.
When I took to the pool this week I failed to realize something. Tight swim goggles will give you black eyes and you will come out of the pool looking like a beaten woman. I got to talking to a french girl and she told me about these goggles she got in France called AquaSphere. They put the pressure on your cheek bone instead of the delicate skin under the eyes. The last thing I need are even darker dark circles. I found mine at KRSC on the Kings Road and paired it with the matching retro swim cap by Zogs. Next I will have to find the suit to match. Now back to the pool!
