Boutique of the week

Get your beach togs at Ondademar

The lowdown: New bathing suit shops are always welcome in South Florida. Luckily for locals, luxe Colombian beachwear brand Ondademar just opened a third U.S. boutique. It’s on pedestrian-friendly Lincoln Road; sister shops can be found on Miami Beach’s Eighth Street and in Coral Gables.

The ambience: Think beach shack chic. Designed by Colombian architect Andres Lopera, the light and airy boutique features driftwood, coral branches, fishing nets, anchors and a cozy white couch.

Highlights: Scoop up the label’s chic swimwear and ready-to-wear cover-ups for women, men, and kids. Shoppers can expect a vast selection of beach-to-night accessories including footwear, bags, scarves, and hats, too. Get in the swim, Miami!

‘Downton Abbey’: A more stylish Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael) is emerging in Season 4.


    ‘Downton’ costumers transform Lady Edith

    Poor, sad Lady Edith. Early on in Downton Abbey, the PBS Masterpiece Classic family saga, it seemed that the much-overlooked, undervalued middle sister of the Crawley clan had been dealt a bad hand. Her assertive nose, wan manner and decorously dowdy wardrobe had apparently rendered her marriage prospects slim to nil. Be kind to her; she has so few advantages, her mother urges Edith’s sister Mary. To which Mary peevishly replies that Edith has none at all.
