No Carbs Before Marbs!

Well well well, someone has clearly been taking style notes from our previous blog posts, as here is none other than The Only Way Is Essex's resident style icon Lydia Bright wearing none other than a Melissa Odabash bandeau - Ecuador in a muchos-tan enhancing shade of jade green.

The lovely Essex girl popped into our showroom earlier this week to pick out some last minute pieces before jetting off to Marbella (where everyone who is anyone appears to be at the moment, Melissa herself and her army of models, assistants, photographers and make up artists are currently out there shooting our 2012 lookbook too, keep any eye out for the new collection dropping soon - it is incredible!) to film a summer special of the hit (understatement!) iTV2 show. Clearly the 'No Carbs before Marbs' mantra the TOWIE gang were living by has paid off too - Lydia looked amazing while taking a dip in the sea to cool off.

Also on the trip was Lola member and recent Odabash devotee Jessica Wright, who hasn't been snapped wearing our pieces just yet, but will be any minute now.

It has been a busy few weeks here at Odabash - with Melissa and the design team hard at work putting the final touches onto the 2012 collection before our glamorous look book shoot, the PR team casting model after gorgeous model for the shoot and generally just lots going on a Odabash HQ - it is going to be a busy summer!

Aside from this, Melissa managed to find a few minutes to allow Hello! Magazine into her home to photograph and interview her on the events of the last few months - and talks about everything from her day to day life, to her BBC3 TV show, to her stint as Royal correspondent throughout the Royal Wedding! If you haven't rushed out and bought yourself a copy yet, what are you waiting for?

The Bandeau is Back!

Alexandra Burke is doing it...

Kelly Bensimon is doing it....

Even Denise van Outen is doing it!

The bandeau bikini is well and truly having a moment and here at Melissa Odabash, we've one to suit any figure and style.

Whether you love Denise's cute 'Martinique' style in a skin flattering coral with bohemian paisley print (which comes, like many of our bikini's, with a set of straps to give support to girls with bigger busts and protect your modesty when going for a dip!) or like Alex you want a sleeker, more graphic style (seen wearing 'Luxor) to exude chic beach cool.

Finally make like Kelly Bensimon in our 'Janeiro' - the perfect piece (those all important straps again!) for a spot of volleyball on the beach - that is if you can tear yourself away from the sunlounger.

Log on to for all of the above and many more styles!
