Art Basel 2014: Spectrum Art Show

I wouldn’t go as far as saying “I Baseled” this year, but I did manage to score VIP passes to the Spectrum Miami Art Exhibit courtesy of Coastaberre, a local trunk show, shopping party and pop- up boutique I met at October’s Fashion Happy Hour! My boyfriend and I had a great night at the Spectrum show and later stopped at a few other galleries on our way to KUSH where we enjoyed dinner and drinks!

One of my favorite parts about Art Basel has always been picking my outfits for all the shows and events. Then again, picking out my outfit is my favorite part about pretty much everything. I wanted my Basel look to be modern, minimal and as usual, a bit edgy. I went with my favorite LBD of the moment (seen before here) and added this snake print jacket with cut out back detail. You know I can’t resist to pop some color into the mix, so I chose oxblood for my booties, lips and accessories!

Wild Wild West

Hey everyone!  Hope you all had a lovely weekend!  I am so way behind on my blogging I feel like I am going to explode from the overload of posts I have planned for the near future!  As you all know I was recently in California on vacation and saying that I fell in love with the Golden State is an understatement-(blog post coming soon).

What I find most rewarding about traveling is the learning, influence and enrichment of different cultures and styles.  California is abundant with a variety of different races, cultures and customs, but when I think of California (not sure why) the first thing that always comes to mind is the Wild, Wild, West.  With this theme in mind, my outfit choices for California were pretty heavy on western influenced trends such as tribal prints, suede, denim and fringe…..lots of fringe!  Fringe is my new black, I am obsessed!

I wore this outfit in California but didn’t take the time to memorialize it with pictures (I must have been having too much fun) so I decided to wear it again this past Saturday in Miami for a little shopping in Midtown and a birthday celebration! More looks from my trip to California coming soon. What do you think of this one?
