Celebrities are known for wearing designer clothes that are far beyond what the average person can afford—which is why it's so exciting to discover an affordable celebrity-loved brand. One such brand: Dippin' Daisy, loved by Ashley Graham, Gabrielle Union, Serena Williams, and Lucy Hale; its swimsuits, apparel, and accessories retail under $100. In even better news, the sustainable brand just dropped their Festival '22 collection, which includes an array of bikinis, one-pieces, sarongs, hats, jewelry, and more, so that you can step into the warm weather in style (and without breaking the bank).

This collection was inspired by the whimsical style of the 1960s, which means that it's full of bright colors, unique textures, and vintage prints. I am, without a doubt, going to be stocking up on several of these bikinis ('60s and '70s fashion is my favorite), so here's a look at all the tabs I currently have open on my computer as I plan out how much I can/should spend on swimwear before payday.
