Wednes-DIY: Make Your New Tee Vintage

August 26, 2014

There’s literally nothing better than a cool, perfectly worn in vintage tee. But not all of our parents saved theirs, and buying a perfect vintage tee can be pricey! We took this into our own hands and after some research, we found the easiest way to do this.

Bucket of water (enough to cover tee) + half cup of Salt  x Three Days = Perfect Vintage Tee

(okay to wash in the machine after this.)vintage DIY-01

The tee we chose:

tee 1

Here’s a close up after the process. You can see how the fabric looks soft, worn out, and there are those perfect little balls of fabric that complete the look.

Your parents will laugh and might tell you to stop dressing like they did when they were teens ;)

Happy DIY-ing! Xoxo

Anatomy of a Swimsuit: Patch Black One-piece

August 18, 2014

Meet our Patch Black One-piece, the latest arrival at limericki.com.

Anatomy of a Swimsuit: Patch Black One-piece / limericki.com

 

This suit has been a customer favorite since it arrived. With a nod to nautical, the applique seahorse patch is stitched on with black thread, and adds whimsy and visual interest. The black bodice is slimming and flattering, and we think you’ll love the classic white trim. We know that bust support is important, and this suit has a hidden shelf bra and is lightly padded.

5 Tips to Make Your Swimsuit Last

August 12, 2014

Unfortunately, we can’t control how much chlorine your local pool uses in the water. (And they probably use lots.) Lime Ricki’s are high quality, but you have to treat them delicately to make them last after long exposure to pool chemicals and the sun. We love our customers and we want them to get the most they can out of our suits. Here’s some tips to help make your suit last longer!

6 TIPS-01

TIP #1: You really, truly, cannot put your Lime Ricki in the washing or drying machine. We have seen countless encounters of those things ruining our suits.

Wear your suit in the shower and let it soak in the cold water for a couple seconds. Hang it on your shower head to dry. Easy!

Suit Tips-01

TIP #2: When wet suits sit together in a bag for hours the colors may bleed onto each other! Those who have the cream suits- this is for you.

Suit Tips-02

TIP #3: Now I know we told you to let the suits air dry. But don’t leave it out in the sun to dry!

Suit Tips-03

TIP #4: This is an old trick that isn’t necessary, but will give you great results.

Suit Tips-04

TIP #5: We love sand.. but also hate it. Be careful at the beach!

Suit Tips-05

TIP #6: Be careful when dipping your feet in the pool to cool off.

There you have it. Xoxo
