Bring on the white sundresses, linen shorts and seersucker bikinis!

Easter is over and according to tradition it's now 'acceptable' to start sporting seersucker pants, white sandals, and linen dresses. It's also time to pack away your corduroy, boots and wool (exception being summer cashmere, of course!).   Here at the beach we long ago bid adieu to those old rules.  BUT in case you've been a good southern lady and waited, Ophelia has plenty of white lace dresses, linen shorts and frilly swimsuits for you to choose from! (We are in the process of ordering a seersucker bikini) 

You can find all of these summer essentials at Ophelia

Ophelia now carries Rikshaw Design!

We are so excited to carry Rikshaw Design's beautiful kurtas by Catherine Fitzsimmons.  You may have seen her unique products featured in Southern Living, InStyle and Pregnancy magazines as well as countless high profile blogs across the country.  Catherine, company founder,  finds inspiration from her worldly background and corporate life.  She worked for Ralph Lauren and Pottery Barn as a textile buyer which took her to India.  There she fell in love with the art of Indian block-printing and the lovely imperfections created by the old art form.  In 2008, she launched the baby & accessory lines of Rikshaw Design which quickly became a must-have.
Ophelia carries all of these beautiful kurtas so get yours today HERE!

Vanessa Hudgens vs. Ana Mall: Who wore it Best?

Featured below is the Tori Praver Daisy top in Nirvana Floral worn by two different ladies. One a celeb, one a local 30A chica. Both girls look great but we wanted to see who wore it best...
Vanessa Hudgens at Coachella

Ana Mall at Grayton Beach State Park

It's hard to say since Vanessa's hair is covering up so much of the top but we're going to have to give this one to Ana Mall. Congrats Ana!!

Undrest: My first bikini of 2011

Ophelia customers are always saying to me, "Wow! You must own tons of swimsuits!" Well, not really. I seem to get so caught up in suiting up other people that I hardly think about swimsuits for myself. Not to mention that I don't have the "beach spare time" that I used to.  BUT - I have finally picked out my very own swimsuit for 2011…
 I am in love with this Undrest handknit string halter and girl short.  The top is adjusted by the tie in the front and is a lot more supportive then it looks. Very Retro!!
You can shop online for it HERE.

One Piece Wonder by Melissa Odabash!

The Cuba one piece by Melissa Odabash has so many things going for it.  We absolutely adore the jewel tone color.  It has ruching on the sides which slims the mid section and the sexy bandeau top is classic.  Add the strap to make it a halter style if you need some lift.
This beauty won't last long so call or stop by Ophelia today!  And don't forget you can shop online 24x7.

Today's SPOTLIGHT Bikini by Heidi Klein

We've talked about Heidi Klein a lot but we continue to be amazed by her beautiful and wearable designs.  The Nassau Bow Bikini comes in black or cream and flatters so many different body types.  The bottoms have a fold-over waist band which adds control.  The top has slight padding for support with a bra-like shape.   Come check it out.   It just may end up being your dream suit! ;)

And we think it would pair perfectly with....

Shoshanna White Crochet Tunic Coverup

and a pair of THESE!

Happy Monday!  xo

Ophelia Swimwear photo shoot: Watersound Beach

Last week, photographer Michael Granberry spent two sunny afternoons photographing Ophelia's HOT local models. All girls were wearing this season's must have swimwear trends.
The locale was breathtaking Watersound Beach! This 30A resort is a 15 minute drive east of Ophelia's shop in Grayton Beach.

 Madra of M Public relations was exceptional in assisting us with organizing and styling!

 Rolland's Beauty Bar did a fabulous job!! Working with Ophelia on makeup/hair for photo shoots is not an easy task.  We like for the girls to look very natural as we think this is indicative of our area. Thank you Shannon and Mindy for creating the perfect "natural glam" look!
