TRT Style Editor Julie Davis and I were on a mission recently to buy new swimsuits for the season. Not just any swimsuit, but something eye-catching with great lines that would flatter our figures. Where did we shop? At the celebrated Femme by Ashley in Red Bank, a trendy lingerie and swimwear boutique that opened in mid May on Broad Street. It just happens to be near my favorite boutiques CoCo Pari and Wisteria. Ashley is named for Ashley Dupre, the former escort from Wall Township, whose liaison with ex New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer created a wave of political scandal that led to his resignation. But that was then, and this is now. Ashley is doing swimmingly and is debuting a well-edited bathing suit collection. And her selections are divine. Stop in. She personally helped me decide between two gorgeous two-piece styles. We decided on the aqua. Thanks, Ashley (my new BFF). I might be back for the metallic one.
