A Rosé by any other name

If you don’t know me, let me clue you in a bit…I love a lot of fancy, French things…and it doesn’t stop with just clothing and perfumes. It spills over (not figuratively of course because I would hate to spill anything) into the world of wine and champagnes. I’m a notorious rosé drinker.
It’s absolutely the best thing to sip on while soaking in the Miami sun or enjoying a sunset cruise or sitting on the beach or while having lunch at the Standard. Any time, any place. Rosé is just a great choice.
Well, if you’re like me (yay!) then you’ll love what’s happening at the fab Edition hotel next weekend….it’s a festival for, you guessed it, rosé! La nuit en rosé is making a stop in Miami and you can be part of it!

Tickets start at just $65 and obviously that’s an amazing price for the caliber of wineries that will be participating. I’ll be there on Saturday day but the event starts Friday night with a VIP opening and continues through Sunday day.

Rainy Day Woman

I have a confession to make…I’m slightly (read: highly) obsessed with jackets. Give me a rain coat, a trench coat, a swing coat, a puffer, a parka or a cape and I’m a very happy camper.

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your view point) I live in Miami Beach where wearing a jacket is a rarity. When a cold front comes in (cold front being anything less than 72 degrees) we Miamians break out our jackets and wear them with pride.  I know, it’s kind of silly but we got to do what we got to do in this tropical weather.
When the team from Joules reached out to me to review their jacket and wellies, I jumped on the chance…I know I won’t get a chance to use this ensemble that much here in Miami Beach but these boots will be fabulous in Switzerland and this lightweight (super portable) jacket is actually perfect for a truly chilly Miami night.

Walk Like a Parisian

For starters, let’s just say that the title “Walk Like an Egyptian” never really made any sense to me…but walking like a Parisian, well, that makes absolutely perfect sense to any fashion loving girl.
The Parisian women have the “it” factor while keeping it simple.
Three things I’ve found can help you achieve this look: black, flats and Chanel.
You always can tell Parisian women because they’re not done up in flashy and bling. They’re simple, understated but always, always chic. This is my best attempt at pulling in some of that French inspiration as a Miami girl. It’s a simple but everyday look that not only makes you feel girly and polished but also ready for just about any place you’re heading to. Continue reading

A Berry Happy Birthday

Hey babies…well, here we are in a brand spanking new year. I spent the last two weeks sick with the flu which was definitely NOT the way I had planned to spend my holidays but I can’t complain because today, January 2nd, was my birthday and I didn’t feel sick, I didn’t feel congested and I certainly didn’t feel like staying inside and “resting”. I felt like being outside, enjoying life, enjoying my family and enjoying the beginning of 2015. So that’s exactly what I did…I enjoyed my day…from start to blog post ;)
And it was a perfect day. We started my birthday with a beautiful morning at Burr’s Berry Farm and picked more strawberries than we know what to do with. I mean, I could make you all jam and I’d still have leftover berries. Doing this with my family was just as sweet as it sounds. Deliciously sweet. Continue reading

Miami Winter

Hey babies, I hope you’re all getting ready for the holidays (or for some of you…already celebrating). Can you believe that this year is coming to a close soon? I can’t. But then I say that every.single.year. Time flies when you’re having fun…or just having a life for that matter. We’ve been spoiled with pretty much perfect weather all month and although I can’t say that it puts you into the spirit of the holidays (I mean, some carols will NEVER make sense here) I do love that I can still wear sleeveless dresses in December.
This little number came from local Miami girl Simonett Pereira’s line Style Mafia. I absolutely loved the collar, the print and the fit. I wore it once already during Art Basel and I can see that I’ll definitely get some use out of it during this “winter” season.

Get Over It

I finally got my first pair of OTK boots…that’s over the knee for those that don’t know. Why did it take me so long? Well, for starters, I wanted to pick out a pair that would be casual enough to wear around during the day. OTK boots during the day?? Yep…it CAN be done. I think there are a lot of options out there for OTK boots but I liked this pair from Vince Camuto the most because they’re suede and have a fun (but comfortable) heel. Had I gone for a super high stiletto and a different fabric, the look would have been totally different and in my opinion, getting dangerously close to Pretty Woman…if you know what I mean. I find that OTK boots can be very sexy…and for some it’s just too much sexiness to handle but not with these boots. I think they did a fab job of being sexy and cool at the same time without making me feel uncomfortable to wear them during the day. Continue reading

Special Delivery

Last week was Thanksgiving and I don’t want to bore you with all the things I’m thankful for but let’s say this…I love my life.
I’m super grateful…today and everyday.
And since it was my year to host Thanksgiving dinner, Kalla’s offer to send me an arrangement could not have been better timed.
If you love flowers, you need to know Kalla. Why? Well, because sending Kalla flowers takes gifting florals to the highest level.
An insanely gorgeous level at that.
The presentation alone is worth the order…they come in their own little “house” that opens up to reveal the bouquet and in my case, a delicious bottle of Hill Family Estates sparkling wine and a box Christopher Elbow’s decadent chocolates. Continue reading

The Art of Denim

Oh babies…can you believe it? Another Art Basel is upon us and this year it seems like everyone wants to be a part of it…including clothing companies. I mean, wearing beautiful clothing is like wearing art so it seems like a match made in fashion heaven if you ask me.

AG Jeans in Aventura Mall is hosting a fabulous soiree dubbed “The Art of Denim”on December 4th from 6pm-9pm and I would love for you to come by and join in the fun.

There will be delicious treats, drinks, music and art. They’ve got a wonderful lineup of local artists displaying their talent and of course, some hot Miami fashion bloggers to mingle with ;)

Who you ask? Moi, the stunning Ria Michelle and the chicest Greek I know, Maria Tettamanti.

Come hang out with us and let’s gab over the latest denim fashions (I mean, AG Jeans is the king of denim), the random celeb spottings (wait? Who was where when?) and how we can’t wait to take a vacation after Art Basel is done ;) Continue reading

Amaluna Giveaway

Hey babies…I’ve been in self-quarantine for the past week fighting off a nasty cold and I’m happy to say that today I’m finally feeling better!! There’s nothing like being sick to remind of just how fabulous it is to be healthy. If that’s not a cause for celebration, I don’t know what is!

In honor of my health coming back, I decided that I would do a giveaway that would encompass all things that I’m for: beauty, health, music, art, femininity and obviously fashion, I mean those costumes are haute, haute, haute!

The latest show from Cirque du Soleil, Amaluna, is coming to Miami starting December 11th and I have two sets of two tickets to giveaway.
Two of you lucky (and gorgeous) friends will win this prize.
Yes, that means you and a friend could be attending this amazing show for FREE…you know, just to let you know how much I care ;) Continue reading

Blue Walls

I know, that title is a little more tongue in cheek that normal but c’mon…the walls are blue. I had to call it this ;) I did throw one yellow wall in “spice” it up.

It’s finally fall here in Miami and that means we’ve began bundling up to the chilly 75 degree weather. Yes, we think that’s chilly here. I will never get over how Miamians dress for cold fronts…short shorts with Uggs, tank dresses with cashmere scarves and bikini bottoms with sweatshirts (I witness all these things this past week, I swear) but what I genuinely love the most is the ability to wear boots. Yes, your feet will probably be sweaty by 3 o’clock but you’ve got to make the most of the “low temps” when you can. I love my Louboutin babies. I hardly ever get to wear them so you know as soon as the temps dropped, I took them out of their dust bag and walked them around the block. Or in this case, the Wynwood district. Continue reading
