Easter Baskets and a Bikini

easter_eggs_8Easter Baskets and a Bikini. Is that such a bad idea? We don’t think so at all. Traditions derived from Easter bring us the Easter Bunny, beautiful arrays of flowers, tie-dyed hard-boiled eggs, pastels, an egg hunt and, at some point in the day, a basket full of chocolate bunnies and jelly beans. For the person spending Easter on the beach or at a pool, why not surprise them with an E22_r16_34_dbl_104b.dbl-203aster basket loaded with bikinis. In keeping with the tradition of bright colors and fun prints, we made a few selections for your loved one’s basket this year.

One of our most popular brands is PilyQ, from the beautiful city of Barcelona. The Reversible Strappy Troy top and Basic bottom we have selected comes in this eye-catching Dreamy tsplt16_ger_ts53c16_ger-copyBlue color scheme. We can’t think of a better color to show off that tan during Easter brunch.

L*Space designed a color scheme that works perfectly while participating in that beach side Easter egg hunt. This Platinum top and Hollywood bottom in the Geranium color scheme will have everyone looking. It just may be the brightest thing on the beach that day.

Who hasn’t tried making a blue and purple Easter egg during the annual egg dying event. The Iceberg Tri Top and Classic Bottom in Blue/Purple created by Dolcessa easily attains this goal. Beautiful and unique in its’ own right, this suit will be sure to attract attention during any event you attend that day. We warn you…do not wear this if you are trying to avoid onlookers.

Our next selection strays away from swimwear, but stays in the blue color scheme. Lady Lux has entered 2016 with this multi-functional Waterfalls Romper in Blue and White. Equally at ease on the beach, near a pool or attending a party, or feel free to wear it to all three.

Moving on, though not quite a pastel, we want to suggest this offering from Brazilian designer Agua Bendita. We went with the Cabo Top and Bottom in the perfectly named Hypnotic color palette. Your family and friends will be mesmerized by this suit no matter the setting. We feel this print will pair nicely with Jelly Bellies in any basket.

Easter is just around the corner, so don’t wait too long? Our website is updated and waiting for your order. Our phone lines are open. Our stores are fully stocked and ready for your visit. If these selections don’t meet your needs, then we will help find the perfect suit for you. And don’t forget to accessorize with our shoes, sunglasses, jewelry and bags. Have a Happy Easter!

A twist on your normal snake print, the Vibora bikini features an extremely striking all-over serpentine patterns we’ve ever encountered. The hand-beaded snakes adorning each triangle on top are jaw-dropping gorgeous, while wavy edges are featured on top and bottom to flatter and accentuate your natural curves! Ties at the neck and back for ultimate adjustability.

The elongated triangle top offers a little more coverage than a traditional one would, while the tie side bottom is cut a little smaller in front with a moderate Latin coverage in back to balance the look. Tieside bottoms allow for decisive fit and to ensure that this bikini will fit you like a glove!

Molly Brown’s Favorites at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!

To the whole world, just like every year, this year too Mercedes Benz Fashion Week presented its feisty universe of fashion. It was a picture that swimwear lovers gaped at and fashion fanatics closely watched to find faults where perhaps none existed. The fashion shows were executed beautifully and didn’t flinch at showing off either swag or sophistication.

 

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2015 Spring 

 

If bold cut out swimwear and color-blocked bikinis ruled one platform, the other showed eclectic and bohemian designs are still a hot favorite of many designers. The great thing about this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was that the swim dresses and cover ups also got their own share of the neon lights. There were sheer wraps, silky gowns and outfits that can leave even the cheekiest and the sexiest bikinis and one piece swimwear pieces a little green with envy.

We also saw it and watched it and cheered as you may have when a L Space, Indah or Caffe piece came on to the stage. And yes there were more of our favorites there too – such as Luli Fama, Maaji, Minimale Animale and Nanette Lepore and a few others. All showcasing their 2015 swimwear creations and were they hot or what!

 

 

 

The reigning trend this year at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and the one showcased for the 2015 Spring season is “Bare Much”! Yes, no girl-next-door-fashion or excess coverage but a pure disregard for the been there and done that. The Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is a thriving example of the designers’ progressive imagination and our fashion-bent minds as it never ceases to bring something new to the world of swimwear and we never cease to have enough of it!

 

This year the designers added sparkle where it was missing, such as sporty swimwear. Remember the rise of the Rashguard last year. This year you can expect even more funked up rashguard and sporty swimwear that can double up as your chosen style statement at an after-party. Surfer girls – it’s time to look sexier than ever!

 

So get ready for higher cuts and wider bikini lines, color splashed designs (not just color blocks but use of other psychedelic tones as well), pure catwalk fashion on the beach, unconventional bikini cuts and a hint of luxury on all garments.

Beaches and Bikinis (V) – Molly Brown’s cocktail of myths and adventure for those great beachcapades

Langkawi, Malaysia

Beaches and Bikinis

Photo credit: http://www.kiwicollection.com

 

“Langkawi” translates into “the land of one’s wishes,” a name that suits the island’s historic origins as a reputed refuge for pirates. Since then this safe-haven has become a modern hideaway for the traveler seeking a beachcapade..

 

The moment you set foot on the idyllic white sandy beaches with swaying coconut trees and crystal clear azure water, you’ll be mesmerized. Forested hills, romantic white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters greet visitors to tropical Palau Langkawi, an island drifting serenely alongside Malaysia in the azure Andaman Sea. The enthralling Langkawi island is enshrouded with legends and myths as well as the archipelago of 104 islands overlooking the panoramic Andaman Seas and Straits of Malacca.

 

Unable to escape the smuggling history from the age of pirates, nowadays Langkawi has become a shopping haven for everyone. You can pretty much get everything from liquor to cigars, chocolates to fashion apparels and many more at tax-free prices.

 

Also the Island has also been named World Geopark by Unesco in June 2007. The three main conservation areas are Island of the Pregnant Maiden Lake, Kilim Karst Geoforest Park and Machincang Cambrian Geoforest Park.

 

Go on and sample local cuisine at the night markets, hike to dramatic waterfalls or dive into an underwater marine park to take a guided glimpse at the vibrant life beneath the sea.

 

And in this modern day luxuriant ex-pirate safe-haven, what would be the best summer outfit? Of course none other than the Colombian made haute couture outfit.

 

Molly Brown’s proudly presents Fuego by Agua Bendita.

 Beaches and Bikinis

It is the perfect swimwear for those ladies who have no inhibitions, are comfortable in their skin and love showing off that amazing body. The vivid hues of this neon suit will have you wearing it from dusk ’till dawn. And guys will be dropping like flies at your feet. Gorgeously paneled with wavy edging and tasseled ties, we promise you one thing: once you get this on, you’re not going to want to take it off. Ever!

 

Agua Bendita’s designer swimwear Feugo and a destination like Langkawi, Malaysia sounds like the perfect plan to glamorize the 2014 summer.
