Last weekend I attended the third annual Escape Miami Style Lounge & Pool Party organized by The Fashion Poet and all I can say is, damn that girl (Annie) sure knows how to throw a party!
As if spending the day with one of my dearest BFF’s (Jackie) wasn’t epic enough, we spent the day “VIP-ing” at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand while indulging in complimentary massages, makeup applications, nail and braid bars, henna and metallic tattoo applications and fashion illustrations by The Architect of Style. Not to mention all the goodies up-for-grabs provided by pop-up shops from local brands and designers such as LYFE Brand (too cool for school), Love Strung (gorgeous jewelry), MIA Shoes (love them) and Flair Miami (super fun Miami themed tees)!
And what would a swim week event be without a poolside fashion show? Local designers and boutiques such as DBrie, Bianca Colleti, Lume Swimwear and Please Don’t Tell Shop showcased this summers hottest trends in swim and casualwear!
You didn’t think I was going to let you all go without talking about “What I Wore” now did you?!
Anytime the dress code calls for fun, fearless and fashion forward, I put my stakes on Nasty Gal! Before embarking on the search for the perfect Swim Week look, I had already decided that I wanted to wear all white (summer’s hottest trend). But most importantly, I wanted a look that would stand up to the unbearable Miami heat!
This “9 to 5 Cutout Blazer Dress” was the answer to my hot and sweaty prayers! White, hot (resistant), sexy and chic all twisted into one! Thank you Nasty Gal, you never let me down!
