Paris and New York hold their special charm, and we have spoken at length of our travels to both. The excitement of Fashion Week in both style capitals certainly can’t be matched, but there is something about the magic of our home, Naples, Florida. Here at Marissa Collections we host many trunk shows and events for designers Oscar de la Renta and Brunello Cucinelli, as well as many talented jewelry designers. We are so fortunate to enjoy the best of both worlds; the thrill of the best designers showcasing in store, and the magic of the tropical climate.

Spring Break

It’s time to lighten up, or at least start thinking about it. The rush of spring is beginning and coats and sweaters will no longer be necessary. Shed the bulk but stock up on color and print. This Peter Som silk postcard print dress is the perfect way to greet the warm weather. Pair it with the sunshine hued Michael Kors ostrich skin clutch bag and leg elongating Chloé ankle strap sandals; both of which keep your mind far from winter skies.

Beach Ready

Being so close to the beach here in Naples, we definitely understand the draw of the warm salty air and sand between the toes. However, while we believe there is no right or wrong way to enjoy the surf, we do think a lady should remain stylish; even in her bikini. Whether lounging poolside or in a private cabana next to the Gulf, the Lanvin grosgrain hat is ultra chic and playful. Block the suns rays in style with the Oliver Peoples Lips-O-Fire sunglasses. And we all know the endless uses for a fabulous tote bag; throw a book and some sunscreen in this Moncler suede tote and you will be beach ready in no time.

Designers to Watch

We love welcoming new names to our already fabulously stylish designer family. Some of them may truly be new and up-and-coming, or already established names that we have only just begun to buy. One of our newest obsessions is Andrew Gn, a Singapore-born, Paris-based designer whose designs are luxurious and boast details worthy of haute couture. His precision and an eye for the exquisite make Andrew Gn a Marissa Collections’ new favorite.

Blossom Brightly

Mimic the bright blooms of spring in your makeup look, with a pink cheek and lip. Begin with a flawless face by applying Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer and Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder. Pat the bright pink shade from the Smashbox Cream Cheek Duo on cheeks and blend; also, use this color on lips as a base shade. Diffuse the look by applying the soft shades of the Spring Eye Shadow Palette to compliment your own eyes, and line lids with Soft Focus Powder Liner. Applying Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss SPF 15 in Endless Kiss ensures a dewy finish.
