Resort Report: From Chi-Chi Marbella

Darling streets like postcards: Marbella-ella-ella hey hey.

If there was a type of attire, I would most love to wear year-round it’s definitely Resort.  Why, you ask?  Well, it would mean perennial vacation on beachy shores in warm climates.  Dreamy, right?  Hot on the heels of my proclamation that Mallorca is the classier, more stylish sister of Ibiza, I bring you the inside scoop on her well connected, wealthy cousin Marbella.  A coastal town situated on the Costa del Sol, Marbella rivals its neighbours in glitz; once known to be Spain’s answer to Monte Carlo, it is an enclave of the rich and chi-chi poo poo, vacation home of movie stars and Arab gajillionaires.  Past decades have seen its decline but it is quietly making a comeback as a jetset destination.

While some detractors claim that the beaches are overrun with hen parties and Chavs, the charm of Marbella lies in the maze of shop-lined streets in Old Town, the scenic boardwalk and the local bodegas that serve authentic tapas.  Here you will find Spaniards and European visitors alike reclining on bistro chairs, slowly taking in the scenery while sipping on a generous glass of vino blanco.  Watch the sun set at the Deportivo Martimo in the many outdoor bars overlooking the bay or listen to the DJ spin chill out mixes at Puro Beach or Nikki Beach.

Le sigh: Quaint white houses on narrow streets, mountains on the horizon.

Got yacht? West of Marbella is the flashy Puerto Banus.

Na-ran-jas! 'Oranges', the new 'Bananas.' Pair your French Connection Lark Dress with espadrilles.

Deja vu in Old Town: Don't throw out last season's Pucci or Chanel.
