If you haven’t already noticed, blog posting has been slow…didn’t want to make the East Coast folks jealous, but I’m on vaca in beautiful Barbados!  So as you can imagine, the pull of beach, drinks, eating, and limin’ will have me posting slowly.  Normal posting will resume when I get back first week of March.  For those shopping, Brandon, Diane and crew are all still in the office so shipping is as normal, and the New York boutique is open as per usual. 

In the meantime, I was looking at some New York Fashion Week coverage and feel in LOURVE with these Christian Soriano for Payless shoes.  I hope once they get to the store, they still look like this…I’ll be dropping some $$$ at Payless if that’s the case!

This season we are going to be doing alot of videos to give you all a closer look into our styles/collections so you can make an informed decision on what to order.  These videos will be raw/unedited videos, so there will definitely be bloopers and mishaps, but I wanted to give you guys the real uncut side, plus we can load them quicker, don’t have to worry about editing.

We are starting off with a video on the new plus size swimwear collection…

2 Things you’ll notice…we didn’t realize if you shoot with the camera vertical, you’ll have a side ways video…lesson learned for next time.  So we had the vid rotated but its a small viewing window, so I included both here because I think the sideways one looks better.

Vid #1 – rotated


Vid #2 -side ways for the adventurous types



Oh, and for some reason I said don’t curse Brandon and I out if you don’t get your video…you guys know I meant swimsuits…told you unedited! LOL

By the way, the Morocco AND the Barbados Black are BOTH completely sold out.  We will NOT be getting anymore.  The “Fuchsia” Pink Fringe is also low on sizes 18, 20, 22 and the “St. Tropez” One Shoulder Black is low in 16, 18.  Although the swimsuits are on preorder (now for May, first deliveries sold out, so the next delivery is for May), DO NOT WAIT TO ORDER.  You may come back to order before your vaca and find them gone…trust me on this one…

Thanks to our customer Katie for being brave enough to do a swimsuit vid with us! 

Leave comments with any questions, let us know if you liked the vid, etc.

Till next time!

2 days late, but no worries…Happy Belated Birthday to the Honorable Robert Nesta Marley!!!!  Bob Marley would be 65 Years Old today and his music is still so incredibly strong and continues to touch so many people.

Here are 3 of my favorite Bob Marley songs:



object data="" height="344" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425">

“Some will hate you, pretend they love you now, 

Then behind they, try to eliminate you,

But who Jah bless, no one curse…”

“Is this love, is this love, is this love, is this love, that I’m feeling?…

I, I’m willing and able,

So I, put my cards on your table.”

This is such an amazing love song
