Knitted Bikinis from San Fran?

Today I received an email about these Handmade knitted bikinis that have been featured in some recent west coast fashion shows.

Brightly colored yarn is loosely knitted on top of a contrasting colored lining. This creates a layered effect in the sunlight. It is the different colors of the yarn and lining that really makes these suits stand out. The suits are fully lined!

Beacause each suit is handmade the prices tend to be a little higher. So my questions to you are :
1. Do you like?
2. Would you pay $225 for this suit?

*** Ophelia could not be successful without your feedback!

SANTA!... I know him!

Santa Clause stopped by Ophelia the other night. We had a great time helping him find the right suit for Mrs. Clause!!

He seemed to like the Shoshanna Tie dye for his lady. Santa also liked the frayed Lola hat for himself.

Vivian loved being his helper!
Not so sure about the creepy Santa looking at bikinis...

Swimsuits and Olive Oil??

Ophelia is excited to be carrying Mac Farms Olive Oil!
 This olive oil is produced locally by our wonderful farmer friends over at Mac Farms. The oil is made from Italian olive trees that are grown in the San Juaquin Valley in CA. Olives are pressed using an old stone press and the resulting peppery finish oil  is then shipped to the McAlexanders. AND we are so lucky for it. What a wonderful gift!!! Come taste for yourself.

Who says it's too cold to go to the beach?!

Ana Mall and I decided to suit up and head to the beach yesterday. Ophelia has received so many new shipments these past few weeks that we decided to stage our own little photo shoot. Naturally we headed to Grayton Beach.

Grayton Beach State Park is a must do for visitors. This 2000 acre State Park sits on the south side of 30A next to Western Lake. Visiters are  offered the oppurtunity to camp, kayak or canoe. Ophelia's favorite thing is the Nature Trail which winds through a costal forrest where scurb oaks and magnolias all seem to twist together along the sand. This is where Ana and I took most of our pics!

An Interview with Tilly Towel Creator Candace Price

Candace Price is the heart and soul (and brains) behind the gorgeous line of products called Tilly Towel.   She is a mother, wife, entrepreneur, business owner  and our friend!  Hope you enjoy getting to know her a little better...

I have lived in South Walton for over 6 years and I love fashion and design!  I have been designing and making jewelry since I moved to the beach from Nashville.  A couple of years ago I searched for the perfect beach towel.  To my surprise, I never found it so I decided to make my own.  That was the beginning of Tilly Towel!  I began by producing fabric samples with various types of terry cloth.  Then I selected a pattern and we proceeded with production.  I began with two products – the adult and baby towels.  Since then I have added children’s hooded towels and cover ups.  

Tilly Towel products are made with 100% cotton fabric and French terry cloth.  The more you wash them the softer they become.

I definitely have a creative side that allows me to explore with lots of different ideas.  I love design and fashion and that is probably where I find most of my inspiration.  We also take family trips each year and I enjoy harnessing inspiration from other places.  One of my favorite spots is St Barths.  It always gets my creative juices flowing.  

There is nothing better than the beach and the laid back attitude that goes along with it.  The tranquility of our area with the dunes and dune lakes is a great foundation in which I build on

I don’t think I could live anywhere but the beach!  But if there was one other place, I think the style in Aspen is top notch.  We travel there quite a bit because my husband is an avid skiier.  It is a nice compliment to our time on 30-A.

Bad champagne at parties.

My family!  I’m a big family girl and love nothing more than to be with my son, husband, and my Pug Tilly.

Hmmm this is a hard one.  I would love to be Tory Burch.  She has built a sucessful brand from her own style.  I would love to understand the business aspects of growing a brand that hits the masses.

Just do it!  You’ll be surprised at the support you receive from the community that helps you juggle work & family!

Thanks so much Candace!  We love your products and YOU!   To purchase the Tilly Towel, just click here!
