I’m going to Mexico at the beginning of May, so I’m starting to keep my eye peeled for a new swimsuit for my trip. I have yet to find a bikini that I really want, but I have come across a whole mess of swimsuits that would get me more than a few looks on the beach. It seems that some swimwear designers these days aren’t creatively inspired by simple batik prints or bright colors — no, they’re into the Animal Kingdom (and I don’t mean classic cheetah prints), bones, and body parts, amongst other non-traditional influences. You know … so edgy! Click on to see 17 swimsuits I simply do not have the balls to wear.

You’re wearing a “Nice Girls Don’t Pepper Spray” shirt? No. Just NO. [Sears.com]
Sure, you could spend $990 on this T-shirt by Thakoon, BUT YOU’D BE AN IDIOT! Sorry, I don’t mean to yell, but this T-shirt isn’t pooping diamonds, so I can’t understand why it costs so much. Do you? [$990, Shopbop]
Adrienne Bailon was a member of the Cheetah Girls. She also dated Rob Kardashian. Now she fancies herself a fashion designer, as this strange frock is something she made herself. From curtains and a sheer bodystocking? It’s unclear, but the jacket is a nice touch. [via Dlisted]

Oh Florence, where have all your flowing gowns and Stevie Nicks-inspired robes gone? This Erdem suit is just, well, overpowering and not particularly flattering on your boyish frame. Stick with the wild rock woman look you know, okay? [Getty Images]
Sometimes a product comes along that is so weird and magical that I can’t help but wonder how different my life would be if I owned it. This sheltie dog purse is one of those products.

Nordstrom is selling this as an oversized feather fascinator, but it looks more like the horrifying aftermath of a tropical bird/human collision to me. In fact, if I saw someone wearing this on the street or at a party, I would instruct them to lie down immediately, check for signs of a concussion, and put in a call to exotic animal control.

Oh my God, you guys. Breaking news. Alexander Wang is making Tevas. Excuse me, Teva-inspired shoes. I have just lost all faith in humanity. I get that when designers gets bored, they take the world’s ugliest things and make them expensive, but I have a hard time picturing anything but sweaty river-waders and/or the boys of my 5th grade class whose uniform was sweatpants and Tevas with white socks.
