Tara Stiles in Marysia SWIM

My beautiful and famous yoga teacher, Tara Stiles sported our IBIZA bikini in Miami last week while she was there for a yoga retreat.  I was sad to miss this retreat as it's for 1..with Tara and 2... at my favorite Miami hotel/spa The Standard Hotel.  This picture was taken at the W-south beach after the retreat and as you can see..the Yoga does her body GOOD!!!  She also eats really really well and is my inspiration! Try her classes here in New York City at her studio STRALA.
Now if you too want to have this red hot bikini....I have GOOD NEWS  our SALE is still going on and we have some of these beauties in stock!

Miami recap

We've been back from sunny Miami for three weeks now and I finally got it together to share some pictures from the show (new resort collection out November 12').  I'm so happy to be part of Salon Allure at the W-south beach instead that cold and bright convention center that used to be the only option....remember that Jane?
My friend Jane Cooper came with me the first year I started the line and she patiently sat with me to the long 4 days in that cold place.  Mrs. Cooper has come to support us every year since then but this time she wasn't able as she's just had bambino #2  A GIRL!!!  Can't wait to get little Pope into some girly BUMBY!!!  We missed you.  Thank you to all the buyers and press who came by to see the new collection!  We are excited to announce some new stores soon:)  Thank you to Rouge for being our showroom model and to Ed from Fashion Wire Press for taking the above photos of Rouge!

and Ps. our "end of summer SALE"  has started!!!
run here to get your Marysia SWIM!!!  Hurry!

Father's day gift guide

Father's day is just as important as Mother's day these days.  The new generation of Fathers is much more hands on with the children and so they deserve a nice gift...don't you think? This gift guide of course is skewed towards a water boy....but that's what we love around here:)
Enjoy the weekend and show some love to your daddy!

Easter is coming...

A few of the foods we used to create some of our favorite colors....

Red Cabbage, Boiling Water, & Vinegar ~ Robin's Egg Blue
Blueberries & Water ~ Bluish-Gray Eggs
Tumeric, Boiling Water, and Vinegar~ Mustard Yellow Eggs
Brewed Coffee ~ Golden Brown Eggs
Beets, Boiling Water, & Vinegar ~ Pale Pink Eggs

I can't help myself but to share these awesome food coloring ideas for Easter eggs.  I found them this morning on Simple Song's blog.  I had the honor of meeting Suanne while in DC during the southern tour.  She is so great, check her out and you'll be following no doubt. I will tell you more about the tour soon...have to catch up with work and fam first...
 I don't like to use the artificial food coloring they sell with the cute decorating kits....especially if you plan to eat the egg.... you know?  My mom  used onion skins to boil the eggs with and the color turned out brown...i would scratch designs in it...but this is so much more fun, don't you think?..sorry mama...gonna have to out do you on this one:)  hehe
The eggs were done by the blogger Dreamy Whites...check out the blog post about the whole thing and see more photos by Heather Bullard in the Souvenir magazine.

I'll be in Hong Kong for Easter but I hope some of you will be give this a

Getting inspired...

So it's that time again...time to start thinking of the new collection.  I'm looking at fabric, trims, and my pinterest boards....need to get my thoughts organized and focused.  Taking a trip to a warmer place works and lately I love snapping pictures on those random things that inspire me and storing them on my instargam.  The below pictures are getting the creating juices flowing for me...
enjoy and Happy Monday!
