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 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!

Get Your Neoprene On!

If you would have asked designers five years ago if neoprene would ever return to the swimwear stage, you probably would have been laughed at, scoffed at, and possibly even asked to vacate the premises.  Well turns out that neoprene is the latest trend to hit 2015 designer swimwear!

First of all, what is neoprene you ask?  Neoprene is a combination of synthetic rubbers that is the material used for wet suits.  The first ever neoprene bikini was created in 1981 by surf brand Body Glove.  Even before then, neoprene has been utilized in custom wet suits and surf attire.  It has high flexibility, survives in many temperatures and with the trending of more active suits and on-the-go suits, it was only a matter of time before the neoprene was incorporated in designer swimwear once again.

 

Below are some hot new neoprene suits of 2015:

Vitamin A- 007 Scuba Wrap
Vitamin A- 007 Scuba Wrap

Vitamin A as usual is up to date with the hottest styles in swimwear, and the neoprene trend is no different.  They infused the neoprene into their classic wrap top with mesh trim for a sexier look to the fabric.  This new signature fabric, NeoLux™ is inspired by the body-sculpting effect of neoprene wetsuits but for a breathable fit and long lasting material.  This scuba-Bond girl look is also available in a one piece.

 

Lisa Lozano- Neoprene
Lisa Lozano- Neoprene Bandeau

 

Lisa Lozano is considered a designer swimwear veteran for her successful line TNA back in 1998 as well as children’s swim line Lilo Tati.  It’s no wonder that she was able to jump right into the neoprene trend effortlessly.  Her collection features both the bandeau and triangle top to compliment any body type.  Bottoms are a classic cut and offer a sleek fit, perfect for any water activities or even just beach lounging.

Agua Bendita is known for their bold prints and fantastic cuts.  This one piece has paneled lace and a front zip up for a decisive plunge neckline.  The neoprene makes for an extremely flattering and smooth fit.

So don’t be afraid to add some neoprene in your life that does not come in the form of a wetsuit or computer sleeve!

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.

Showstopping Suits | Hint to Our Next Giveaway!

We’ve never been the ones to shy away from attention, and think every lady needs one suit in her closet that turns heads! Always on the hunt for unique bikinis and innovating designs, we’re happy to say that we’ve scouted out some of the very best. Stylish, unique and sexy– we love them!

{Caliente & La Belle Nuit by AMERICAN HONEY}

When we first laid eyes on American Honey, we were shocked that it was their debut season. Designer Andrea Gomez makes it look like she’s been at this for years, and the two suits above are prime examples of her aesthetic. Part rocker part sultry vixen, we’re loving the aggressive edge Gomez has given her suits.

{Tripulacion 1pc by AGUA BENDITA}

Don’t know about you, but we could definitely see ourselves living in this abroad. Say, the sandy beaches of Barcelona…! One thing is sure, no matter where you go, this plunging neckline will turn heads if you’re daring enough to wear it!

{Komodo & Axel 1pc by AQUA DI LARA}

And finally, these beauties. The liquid-like midnight material on the Komodo suit is gorgeous. One of those things you have to see to believe. And no one can deny that the unique design across the front of the Axel 1pc is one-of-a-kind.

P.S. Stay tuned… we’re having another giveaway and it’s going to be showstopping.

xoxo Molly!

Christmas in February!

Now THIS is the most wonderful time of the year! (Although with all the presents we’ll be buying ourselves it does, kinda feel like Christmas).

The swimsuit edition of Sport’s Illustrated is out, and we can’t stop reading it (for the articles of course 😉 ) The beautiful Kate Upton is on the cover, but the real treasures are inside. We’ll probably be updating about this for days to come, but for now a few of our favorites!

Amazon Royal Blue by diNeila

Pena by diNeila

diNeila is Brazilian GOLD. We’ve only been carrying the line for two seasons now, but they always blow us away! Made with the utmost attention to detail and unique accents, we’ve found that their suits are as flattering as they are fun!

West by Agua Bendita

And no one’s forgetting about Agua Bendita. The beautiful Chrissy Teigen wears the bright neon West bikini paired with a denim vest. We love this idea, and think it’ll be perfect come summertime (and festival season!)

xoxo Molly
