Style and Swim by Nic del Mar



Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is one truly class act! On Sunday I was treated to a day of Style & Swim at the Raleigh Hotel, our home away from home during Fashion Week here in Miami Beach. It was a perfect hot, tropical, sun-kissed day with cerulean blue skies and snow white waves washing up on golden South Beach. We were warmly greeted by the Mercedes Benz girls at check in and whisked upstairs to the coveted floor eight Penthouse Suite where light poured in from the two-story windows and surrounding sun-deck.  I was introduced to Jeannette Roger owner of Nic del Mar of Coral Gables a delectable Shop loaded with a veritable treasure chest of Resortwear, Swimsuits and Accessories.

Lyanne began by showing me their  line of swim wear that had been strategically placed around the room by color. The racks were so alive with color that it reminded me of snorkeling in the Keys and seeing the beautiful array of fish and coral underwater.

So after the tour of the Swim Suit World, Lyanne chose a few for me to try on and I followed her as she swept through the room, suits in hand, to the spa-like dressing room! Is she like a sunshine goddess or what?!


Next is usually the painful part of being unhappy with the results, but because of her expertise and consideration for all body types, I was more than pleased with the results. 

Next was accessories and there were plenty of them! Beach Jewelry, Hats and some of the most gorgeous cover-ups I have ever seen. It was the most deliciously intimate setting to shop, the problem was which one to choose!

All that shopping was bound to get a girl thirsty, but those amazing Nic del Mar girls knew just how to solve that problem with a chilled glass of Moët et Chandon White Star or Belvedere Grapefruit Vodka and Tonic. So with glasses in hand there was nothing left to do but wander out onto the sun-deck of this gorgeous Penthouse sip Champagne and admire the view. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim, I love you. It doesn’t get any more Miami than this!
