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.
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 →
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.

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 →
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 →
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 →
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 →
Listen up, babies…Longchamp is throwing a soiree in honor of the 20th anniversary of their iconic Le Pliage bag and YOU’RE INVITED!
It just so happens that I’m one of the hosts along with the über fabulous (and Miami’s favorite fashion blogger) Maria Tettamanti from The Wordy Girl.
The two of us are sooo excited to host this event and share the fun with our amazing friends and readers…and that includes you (duh!).
Longchamp is a family owned French brand and 20 years ago they create a simple market bag…you know, just some thing the Parisians could use to get their baguettes and flowers from their local stores. But of course, as we all know, anything done by the French has a certain chicness to it and voila! the Le Pliage bag became the “must-have” bag for everyone.
People began using this bag for everything from travel to work and of course, market trips.
It’s functional yet fashionable. A blend that every fashionista dreams of and seeks out.
I always knew this classic bag came nylon but the fab staff at Longchamp showed me all the amazing options that are available with the Le Pliage bag. Personalization, leather, in collaboration with Sarah Morris and heritage are just a few of the many catergories that Le Pliage falls into.
Their cuir collection for fall offers the bag in the most subtle leather and in the most stunning colors like this poppy one I opted for.
I mean, have you ever seen a more vibrant pop of color in a post??
I’ve officially jumped on the jumpsuit bandwagon. The reason it took me so long to join in on the fun? Well, although I love being a tall girl, having long legs does create a bit of a problem in the jumpsuit department but thanks to Bebe, I can finally partake in one of the hottest trends to hit us since crop tops. I see jumpsuits EVERYWHERE!! What’s not to love about these fab one piece numbers? They’re comfy, chic and will take you to almost any event you’ve got scheduled. Personally they are perfect for a busy Mom on the go like me.
I can put this one and feel “put together” without having to overly think my outfit. Continue reading →
It’s hot in Miami…and by hot, I mean it’s still pretty much summertime here. We’re seeing mid to high 80’s everyday with intense humidity so although the idea of skinny jeans and a nice chunky knit sweater seem super duper appealing, the chances of that happening anytime soon are slim to none. So, as many of my fellow fashionistas in Miami do, I improvise. To make fall fashion work in Miami you’ve got to be realistic about the heat and the humidity while keeping in mind that the rest of the country is feeling winter coming around the corner. The best way to balance those two worlds is to incorporate darker colors, less summery shoes (in this case, shooties) and change up the makeup a bit to give your face a little more than just a sun kissed glow.
