Girl Squad With Yoox and Bianca Balti

Yoox and Bianca Balti

Hi Guys!

I just got back the beautiful Verdura Resort in Sicily with my girl gang. I was so excited to be a part of the YOOX x Bianca Balti collaboration – I’m a huge fan of YOOX and Bianca Balti’s designs are loads of fun and were really easy to shoot around the resort and its nearby beaches – I felt so comfortable the whole time and we all looked amazing! And when you see seven girls together all wearing Bianca’s different designs, they really complement each other and illustrate a modern twist on the Californian surf culture of the ’60s. Really, really cool stuff.

The inspiration for this line of swimwear is California Dreamin’ and, given how much time we all spent together and how much fun we had, I think we’re proof that this is a swim line that can be worn all day at the beach to bring back those ’60s surf vibes.

I was there with seven other amazing, beautiful bloggers. I just love going on these trips because you get to meet so many diverse and talented people. This was the crew:

Sofya from France: Incredibly sweet French Moroccan girl – and she has loads of tips on how to date French guys – so hit her up for some dating advice! Moves like a ballerina on the shoots – amazing, amazing hair, and an absolute stunner. See

Consu from Germany: Ok so this little Chilean/German hottie is like a Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner & Kim Kardashian all rolled into one. She LOVES eating just as much as I do, so we got along great! See

Lorna from the UK: Lorna is a British superstar. She is so funny, has so much personality and then she looks amazing in everything… Her style caters for everyone and I kinda have a bit of a girl crush on her! See

Felicia from China/USA: Felicia is super smart and a total babe – just finishing her MBA and was great in the way she got a like-minded bunch of bloggers together and make sure we had an amazing time. Super cute, super talented. See

Maja from Slovenia: Major blonde bombshell from Eastern Europe, every shot she does personifies Instagram inspo and her talent in front of the camera was amazing! And so prepared – brings her own healthy meals on shoots! See

Marisa from Germany: Little half Thai pocket rocket and has the most amazing talent for blogging travel inspo! She looks soooo good in swimwear, she can just wear it and travel in it all day and always looks amazing. And so nice to meet another Thai blogger! See

We worked with the most amazing photographer Leanne Dixon: Amazingly beautiful, subtly half-asian looks, so relaxed and so disarming and just loved every second working with her. She’s a real pro, and I’m going to eventually get her to join the dark side and become an Instagrammer! She’s too cute not to! Leanne grew up in Australia so it was nice to have a little piece of home on location. See

You can shop all these looks here​ – more below from the YOOX website


For Bianca Balti, California has always been “the place where dreams come true” and where the model-turned-designer achieved hers.

So it’s no surprise then that the West Coast and its ’60s surf culture vibe were the inspiration for her debut namesake swimwear collection, available exclusively on YOOX.

Thanks for stopping by lovelies!!! Xxxxx
