Love The *Space You’re In

 

L*Space designer Monica Wise graced us with her creative genius at our Newport Beach location this past Monday.  We were given a tour through the new items for Summer 2015, the stories behind the inspiration, and fits and construction of each carefully thought out piece.

 

 

But what does the “L” in L*Space stand for?

 

 

“The ‘L’ represents all of the things that I value and want.  Love, laughter, life.  So I wanted to create a space for those things,”  Wise said.

 

 

 

 

 

And that is exactly what she did! Inspirations for “The Water Is Waiting” include a honeymoon spent in Maldives, prints that reminisce past season colors, and functional fits for the easy beach to street look!

 

The collection features perfect pieces that we all love for lounging and living.  One thing that sets the L*Space brand apart is that all swimwear is solely made in Southern California.

 

 

 

 

Every piece from the summer collection feature a little something special.  Take the Kaella Bijoux top.  “Bijoux” means jewelry in French.  The piece shown in the middle of the bandeau top is removable and can be clasped virtually anywhere.  The top can also be worn without the piece as a hardware-free bandeau.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another great piece is the Sunset Tunic.  Amazingly lightweight material with eyelets allover.  This is a great convertible piece, perfect over a bikini or with a camisole under and jeans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you again Monica and her amazing team for visiting us in Newport Beach and creating more pieces to obsess over!

Kaftans at the beach – When Style meets Functionality!

 

When you talk about fashion at the beach, it can’t be just the bikini. Beach fashion is about how you complete your entire look by adding accessories or resortwear to your designer bikini. And what can be more beautiful than a kaftan to add more glamor to your beach look?

 

 

Kaftans at the beach in airy fabrics look superb during summers. These come in a variety of styles, materials, patterns and embellishments to enhance your entire beach avatar! Earlier, kaftans were a safe option for ladies who didn’t want to bare it all. Ladies wore kaftan/tunics over swimsuits to minimize skin show but still look glamorous. However, now it’s a lovely fashion apparel that women wear to add style to their beach look.

 

Designer tunics & kaftans are versatile pieces of resort wear. You can trick the sun rays by wearing a kaftan, or lounge around the pool in a sexy tunic. While staying at beach resorts, kaftans are dressy enough for when you wish to hit the beach bar for a drink or reach the buffet area for a quick bite.

 

               

 

Accessories like belts, embellished necklaces, tote bags, hats, flip flops are commonly worn by women at beaches. Similarly, kaftans in the Summer of 2015 will play a vital role in styling up a beach look. Kaftans and tunics – long/ short, plaid/ colorful, waist cinching/ straight and in sensual cuts are essential for every beach season. More than style and fashion, a kaftan lends you functionality that no other resort clothing does! Flaunt your body the way you want to, accentuate the right areas of your body by choosing the correct kaftan for yourself.

 

Molly Brown’s has a superb collection of kaftans/cover-ups/tunics in eye-catching prints, diverse cuts, various lengths and colors.

Molly Brown’s Fashion Fridays – Beach Couture for Him & Her

Hello my lovelies!

 

It’s Friday Friday Friday and that means Partaayyyy!

 

We haven’t been this excited since forever! Last week, Amahlia Stevens came by to our store and it was awesome!
Inspired by her gorgeous style and fashion sense, we decided to do a Fashion Friday with a twist.
So instead of one pick of the week, this time we have two. There is also a special theme: Beach Couture!

 

This Fashion Friday, we bring to you ideal beach date outfits for him and her, our favorite pick out of them all!
Next time you are going to the beach for a date or to spend time with your significant other, keep these outfits in mind 😉

 

First off, the outfit for the lady!

 

Since it is the beach, what better than swimwear and nothing goes with the beach more than a gorgeous cover-up dress or swim dress. We have picked out 3 different type of dresses, and you can decide which one to wear for your date in the sun and the sand :)

 

Show off those sexy and toned legs in these hot pink Ruffle Shift Dress by Indah. Add some glitter and you are ready to rock and roll! We suggest pairing this dress with simple sparklers and style your hair in curls or in a high ponytail.

 

3_pink-coverup

For a more laidback vibe and nailing the beach look completely, we suggest the Desert Rose Maxi Dress by Lady Lux. A halter, snake print dress with a slit for a little sneak peek game, this maxi dress will make you look like the goddess that you are. Pair this dress with simple beach waves for the perfect relaxed look.

 

2-desert-rose-dress-copy

 

Our last piece is one of our favorite looks for a casual beach date. It is the Jumpsuit! The Ruda jumpsuit by Vix is a perfect way to leave your date stunned! Paired with strappy sandals and sun-kissed hair, this casually elegant jumpsuit on you will definitely make heads turn at the beach!

 

2_ruda_acqua_jumpsuit_lifestyle_logo

Accessories are a must, and the lesser the better. Pick one statement piece, a necklace or earrings and some bangles and you are good to go! Since it is a beach date, we suggest you keep the footwear simple, like these flip-flops. If you want something fancier, then you can go with a pair of dressy flat sandals.

 

Now, for the men!

 

Men are definitely much easier to dress than girls!

 

Boys, since it is a beach date, we suggest that you keep it cool and casual. A t-shirt with board shorts and flip flops and a hat is the perfect beach date look for you!
Don’t worry, we have some options for you too.

 

For the t-shirt, we suggest wearing lighter shades such as whites and pastels that give off a very surfer dude like vibe! Some of our favorite shirts from our men’s swimwear collection are the following.

 

                                    

As your t-shirt will be of a lighter color, opt for darker colors in your board shorts. Stick to standard colors such as blue or black or something of a similar tone. If you want to funk it up a bit, you can even wear camo shorts!
Here are our options for you!

 

                                        

A hat will complete the laid-back surfer look we have going on here and we have some great choices for you here and here!

 

If you want to style your hair, then you can drop the hat. :)

 

We hope your dates go amazingly and you have a total blast!

 

Happy Weekend Y’all! :)
