There’s nothing better on a grey London day than stepping into a room full of radiant resort wear, and this week thanks to a visit to the Melissa Odabash Spring 14 press day, I got my dose of sunshine.
Melissa Odabash has been punting out divine beachwear and cover ups almost as long as I have had an obsession with it.
Seriously, if you peeked in my vacation closet you would be hard pressed to wade through the bikinis and cover ups. These days those items get their vacation outings not only on my trips abroad, but also stashed in the bags of friends who have cottoned on to my stockpile and head over to my place to stage a closet raid prior to their holidays.
So with all this in mind, I would count myself as a bit of an expert on the subject of what makes up great resort wear.
Of course there’s the statement swimsuit…
Add a few accessories like the delicious jewellery range, and the de rigeur panama hat.
One little extra thing I learnt on my visit, was that Melissa Odabash also does childrenswear. It was the cutest stuff I’d ever seen and made me almost want to have another baby…. but then I reminded myself of the trauma of a post baby bikini body and got rid of that little notion right away.
