when dawn told me what these pockets where for, it took this suit up a notch i didn't even think it could go. it's already one of my fave suits, and pockets for seashell collecting!?? i died! i needed this suit the last year in costa rica...goggles on at the edge of the shore, back and forth with the waves, and spotting the shiny pieces along the "wall." i love made by dawn...encouring free and happy while wearing shoulders like petals. btw i wear mine with skirts too :) xoxo love to dawn! thank you for your collection!
