So what do you do when its pouring rain outside and maybe not the best day to hit the beach to work on your tan?…Plan a bikini shopping trip, of course! Last week, amidst the Miami rain (and the heavy flooding), we had the opportunity to meet up with YouTube’s own UK fashion blogger extraordinaire, Lexi, of SoTotallyVlog/Fashion Filth at our SOBE store. Lexi, under the YouTube domain SoTotallyVlog, has made a big name for herself in the “vlogosphere” with her clothing hauls, OOTD’s (A.K.A Outfits of the Day), beauty tutorials, accessory reviews, and fun Vlogs of her daily life! With over 92,000 YouTube subscribers, a thriving fashion blog, Fashion Filth, and a killer sense of style, Lexi certainly knows how to make a statement in the fashion world. She is even a partner with YouTube’s Style Haul and Fas# Tag, so you know that Lexi is always in-the-know of the latest trends on all things “Fashion.”

As a fellow designer swimwear lover, we were thrilled to be able to get the chance to work with Lexi, so when we planned a shopping trip/video shoot at the store, you can only imagine our excitement! Not even the rain could put a damper on this day!

Here is the exclusive on Lexi’s shopping day at The Orchid Boutique! Which styles do you think she will choose?

1. Loving the Fringe! – L*Space was a definite hit for Lexi, especially because of their classic fringe detailing and their solid colors, which are perfect for mixing and matching. She definitely rocked the Santorini Sunset Dolly Bandeau, and who wouldn’t love the vibrant colors of the Audrey Paprika Fringe Halter Top!?

2.Malai and Maaji, Oh My! -We loved that some of Lexi’s picks included festive prints because this was one of the seaon’s hottest swimwear trends for 2013! She also enjoyed how all Maaji suits are reversible, so trying on the Midnight Cats combo was a must!

The purple trim and feather detailing of the Malai Feather Bandeau would be perfect for any fashionista’s day on the beach!

3. Orchid Label Classics – Orchid Label, our exclusive brand that is perfect for mixing an matching, was another hit for Lexi. She even gave the Black Pin-Up High Waisted Bikini a try; this style is not only flattering and super chic, but the top and/or bottom can be mixed with other selections from the Orchid Label line. Best of all, every style from this collection is under $100, so it is definitely easy on the wallet!

Shopping with Lexi was so much fun, and we can’t wait for the opportunity to work with her again! She is definitely going to be the envy of every beach-goer with her picks exclusively from The Orchid Boutique!
