Surviving New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve!! This annual event can turn into the best party of the year or the most stressful, sometimes both happening at the same time.  Molly Brown’s has come up with a few tips to help survive this one night.

 

 

12_r16_37_inc-405ddaymd16_blk_4

 

 

1. Plan out everything.  How to get to and from your event?  How long to stay at each location? What should you bring? And most importantly, what are you going to wear? Not every New Year’s Eve Party requires a formal dress. Molly Brown’s has many offerings available for the informal, casual or beach party on New Year’s Eve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Install a “find my phone” app.  Let’s be honest here, too many of us have our whole life stored on our phones.  And why wouldn’t we with the capabilities available today.  Credit info, boarding passes, address books, social media.  Everything is at the touch of a button.  Losing that capability for one day can be a sour start to 2016. Once inhibitions go out the window, who knows where our phones may end up.

3. Travel safely or find a hotel.  Designate a driver, hail a cab, or if available, utilize transportation companies such as Uber or Lyft.  AAA also has a great holiday safe ride program that offers free rides home until the early morning hours.  Getting home safely is of utmost priority on this night.  If you don’t plan on doing the above, then the next best idea getting a hotel room.  The options are endless on a safe space to stay following the evenings celebrations.  Of course, if you happen to be in Vegas, you can come visit us in The Cosmopolitan.

4. Utilize a Traffic-Aware Navigation App.  Even a sober evening can be ruined by drunk drivers on New Year’s Eve.  If you must drive, a good navigation app (Google Maps, Waze) will keep you up to date on busy areas, including avoiding heavy traffic, accidents and police cars.

5. Ease your hangover on New Year’s Day.  Not all of us have the self-control required to avoid the dreaded hangover.  Obviously, the best way to avoid a hangover is to not drink too much, but let’s be honest, New Year’s Eve is not always the best night to start your resolution.  There are all sorts of myths and tricks to cure a hangover, but in short you need to drink re-hydrate (drink water), replace electrolytes (coconut water, gatorade), eat a decent breakfast and try to avoid coffee and more alcohol.

 

 

 

These are just a few tips available to have a stress free evening.  We are positive that there are many more ideas out there.  Feel free to add your tips to our list.  Have a great New Year’s Eve and here is too a successful and exciting 2016!!!

Luli Fama–2015 Miami’s Lookin Nice

Luli Fama is known for their bright colors and jaw-dropping cuts.  For their 2015 collection, Miami Nice, they deliver nothing less!

Lourdes “Luli” Hanimian and Augusto Hanimian, the amazing duo of Luli Fama, have combined their Miami upbringing and their own creative brilliance and created one of the most sexiest and recognized swimwear lines in the world.

For the creation of “Miami Nice” Augusto turned nostalgia into inspiration.  The iconic television show, Miami Vice, along with the neon colors that once ruled the nightlife of Miami in the 80’s all went into the construction of this collection. Miami Nice not only features an assortment of tropical prints, but also succeeds at capturing the wildlife of Miami today including parrots, flamingos, and even underwater life.

 

Below is one of my favorite dresses from the new Luli Fama collection! The Front Row Mini dress can be worn two different ways: either as stringed halter (as pictured) or you can put your head through the front slit and it functions as a sleeveless dress.  Versatile along with an fun print!  This print also comes in bikini version as well. Check it out here!

Another great piece from Luli Fama is the Something Sexy Corset top with the Strappy Ruched bottoms.  There has not been a time that I’ve seen this on someone and didn’t love it! The top has underwire for added support and removable pads.  The bottoms have the classic Luli ruching in the back and sexy string cutouts in the front.

Any piece from the Miami Nice will stop anyone dead in their tracks…but why take my word for it? Peek through the entire collection and decide for yourself!

And talking about beautiful swimwear, there’s one sexy bikini by Luli Fama that serves as the best example – The Burbujas Pushup Top and Sassy Cheeks Bottom in white.

 

 

If white is your color, then you can’t be missing on this exclusive Luli Fama piece. The pushup bikini top is everything you could ask for to scorch the beach this summer. Why do we say that? Well, it has molded cups for better support and built in heart shape push up padding for a fit that makes you look nothing less then a ramp walking diva.

 

The cheeky and sassy bottom is very comfortable on the beach. It doesn’t stick with the skin when in water and contours your body perfectly.

 

What magic white has on the beach!

 

White on beach is serene, but in a super sensual way. You should just know how to pull it off correctly! And yeah you dusky beauties, white is definitely a color to add to your hotness. The Burbujas Pushup Top and Sassy Cheeks Bottom gets a thumbs up from Molly Brown’s and is for sure one of the hottest bikinis by Luli Fama this season.

Molly Brown’s Valentine’s Day Collection

Our experts at the store have put together this Valentine’s collection so that you don’t need to walk store to store or browse e-shop to e-shop to find the look that works for you. To make it even simpler, we have created a new page with the best bikini and swimwear products that embody the spirit of sexiness.

How to Shop from the collection:
If these become too overwhelming and all bikinis seem too pretty to leave out, then we’d suggest you go through the following themes and choose the one that works best for you. We wouldn’t want you to spend your entire V-Day budget on a bikini so that you can plan that special dinner and an exquisite gift for him. :)

By Color:

If cliché doesn’t offend your preferences then we have red stunners in this collection! Dipped from the straps to the cups and the tie sides to the bottom covers in hot molten and stimulating shades of red, the red bikinis from Despi, Lulifama and Vitamin A are made for Valentine’s Day!

The Benefit of Bows.

We’re so glad that the bow trend is big this season because frankly, we can’t get enough. From structured ones, to more casually-tied ones, they have the capacity to be girlish, sexy, coy and flirty all at the same time.

Bow Bottom and Bow Romper by LULI FAMA

Crystalized and paired with tassels they become flirty, and who better to attack flirty than Miami-based Luli Fama. Tack their famous ruched Brazilian coverage to the mix and these bottoms were a no-brainer. We’ve got them in the apple green and white (couldn’t resist!!)

Rock n’ Roll 1pc and Crimson & Clover Top by LOLLI

Lolli shot (and when we say shot we mean SKYROCKETED) to superstardom with their Bow Bottom. They were sweet, adorable and girly– all the things you could ever ask for. But their 2013 collection is jaw-droppingly different. Inspired by vintage rock, their new collection shows off the edgier side of bows.

Rendezvous 1pc in white and martinique by MAIO by L*SPACE

And finally, the knotted bow. These casually tied knots add just the right amount of relaxation to these structured one-pieces. They feel pin-up inspired, but not overly so, and paired with the textured fabric these bows still feel refined and unique!
