Escape Miami 3

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!

Hey guys! I know its been a while, but with all the shopping, wrapping, holiday parties and all around holiday fun its been quite difficult getting myself to “stop and smell the roses” a/k/a blogging in my world! So before we say good bye to 2014 here’s a look I wore a few weeks ago on one of those “cold” days we had!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and although I plan to post something before New Year’s Eve, I wish you all a Happy New Year in advance!

Fancy Wednesday: Booties

As much as I would LOVE to start posting “Fall Fancies” to include my favorite fall trends such as moto-jackets and over- the-knee boots, let’s face it, what kind of psycho would I appear to be– considering I live in Miami!

BOOTIES, however, are the perfect way to slowly ease into Fall without suffering from heat stroke.  Whether you prefer sheer, zippered, lace-up, studded or fringed booties, pair them with your short skirts and shorts (for the time being) for a sexy and edgy Semi-Fall look!

I am not normally one for group activities or religious worships, but if I was willingly in a position to join a cult, it would be NastyGal’s Shoe Cult!  Now before you start getting all “Holier than thou” on me, take a look at my picks from the NastyGal Shoe Cult Collection to see why Shoe Cult is what’s currently tickling my fancy!

Floral Jumpsuit

Hey Dolls! This past Friday I attended my friend Jonathan’s medical school graduation party at The Bar at Level 25 of the Conrad Hotel.  The Bar at Level 25 is beautifully located on the 25th floor of the Conrad Hotel and provides ravishing views of Miami’s skyline, a mod ambiance and delightful sips and bites. This venue is a great place to host a party or unwind for happy hour!  I am so proud of my friend for his huge accomplishment and very thankful for the fun times Friday night.

I wore this Nasty Gal x Shakuhachi floral jumpsuit that I seriously want to live in. Jumpsuits are so incredibly comfy and totally trending for spring and summer! This particular jumpsuit is sold out, but here, here, here, here and here are a few similar styles currently tickling my fancy!

I wish you all a wonderful evening! Thanks for stopping by!
