Meet the Newport Beach Molly Dolls

Newport Beach, California is home to some of the best restaurants, shopping, and most beautiful beaches on the west coast. It also happens to be the spot where the very first Molly Brown’s Swimwear was opened. For more than 30 years it has been providing Orange County with luxurious, on trend, designer swimwear for every occasion. This post is going to let you know a little more about the team in the Newport Beach store and their favorite things to do in the area. Consider it the first “favorites” installment in a new series we are doing for each store. Molly Brown’s wants the clients to get to know us better!

There are three Molly Dolls at the Newport Beach store, Taylor, Chelsea, and Haleigh. You can consider them bikini experts. They know everything there is to know about different brands, styles, and fits. In their free time the Newport Molly Dolls have many different hobbies. Haleigh is our fitness girl. She loves going to the gym and working out in the sunshine. Taylor is the fashion lover. She is always flipping through the pages of Porter, W, and Harper’s Bazaar. Chelsea is the adventurous music lover of the group. She attends as many shows and festivals as she can.

Every Molly Doll in the store has their favorite suits. With each box of shipment that comes in the excitement builds. It is like opening a special birthday gift only; it’s a box of bikinis. They each have their own personal style, which makes their favorite suit more unique! Taylor loves Beach Riot. It is her favorite brand apart from Fella. Her number one pick in the store right now is the Beach Riot Eclipse 1pc. It is the perfect mix of fashion and function. Haleigh loves swimwear that enhances her curves. Her top pick in the store right now is the Montce Syd Shells bikini. It is perfect for anyone who loves to show some skin. Chelsea is a fan of more simplistic suits.She gravitates more towards brands like Mikoh and Acacia. Her favorite suit in the store is the Acacia Humuhumu top and Polihale bottoms in the crocheted Merlot color. With so many cute suits around the store it definitely makes it hard to pick one favorite.

There are so many great restaurants out on the peninsula and in Newport Beach. The Molly Dolls are always out and about and know all the great spots to grab a quick lunch or have a nice dinner. One place you will always catch them for lunch is Sessions. It is a sandwich/salad restaurant out on the Newport Peninsula. It has the BEST food. It is a great spot to grab some lunch to go before hitting the beach or on a lunch break. Haleigh is a big fan of Mama D’s. It is a famous Italian restaurant that always serves the best food. Sushi is another favorite of the Newport Beach Molly Dolls. Chelsea loves Nana San in the Newport/Costa Mesa area. These three restaurants never disappoint!

The nightlife out on the peninsula always offers a great time! There are a ton of fun bars that offer dancing, DJs, and live music. The most frequented spot by the Molly Dolls is Stag Bar + Kitchen.It has a fun atmosphere and a great bar. Haleigh loves to go there with a group to sip on Moscow Mules and jump in the photo booth with her girlfriends. Taylor loves the vibe at Blue Beet. It always has a live band and expertly mixed cocktails. The best part about Blue Beet is the upstairs patio. It has the prettiest view that overlooks the ocean. The key when going out on the Newport Peninsula is going to Laventinas for the “after party.” It is the best place to get pizza by the slice and, they are open until 2AM. Their cheese pizza has been known to change lives… just kidding. But, really.

Whether they are paddle boarding, tanning by the pool, or at a festival, the Newport Beach team always loves to soak up the California sunshine. This was a little sneak peak into all things Newport Beach courtesy of the Molly Dolls. Feel free to stop in anytime and say hello!
