Revamping the Old

0 Comments

The weather in Miami continues to be a little too warm for fall clothes and a little too cool for summer dresses. I’ve had this little summer dress and found a perfect way to make it work for this in between seasons weather by layering with a sheer vintage short sleeve shirt. I tied the shirt in the back to keep the waist accentuated and ta da! A new outfit is born! Keeping your look updated is all about reworking what’s already in your closet! Happy Friday!

Rent the Runway

0 Comments

If you’re like me, you’ve fantasized about having a friend your exact size and shape, with killer style and a closet full of beautiful designer dresses up for the taking. Well, fantasize no more! This may be a concept most of us have heard about… think Jennifer Hudson in Sex and the City 2 renting her designer handbags in lieu of dishing out thousands from her personal assistant wage… now translate that into designer dresses… And that is our new stylish best friend Rent the Runway. The website has hundreds of designer dresses to choose from for a special occasion, vacation, or event. It all seems simple enough: You choose your dress; they ship 2 sizes of the dress to your home within 2 days; you can keep it 4-8 days and then return it in prepaid packaging. The price range is from $50- $500+. And did I mention that they rent bridesmaid dresses?! I mean really, who has worn their bridesmaid dresses twice? If only I’d known this last year…

St Tropez Cool vs Paris Chic

0 Comments

I recently went to France for the first time and was more than impressed by how beautiful this country is. It seemed like everything I saw was more beautiful than the last. We started off with a mini-tour of the South of France (Avignon, Cassis, St Tropez, Mougins, Cannes) and ended our trip in Paris. As if packing wasn’t enough of a challenge for me (I need a full 24 hours to coordinate outfits and dwindle down my shoe selection to only 5), I was thrown a curve-ball since I had to prepare for both summer weather and chilly fall weather. All items below are vintage or consignment pieces form my closet except for the BCBG Blazer, J Brand jeans, and KReLwear romper (new purchase that I LOVE from a very talented Miami designer- Check out the website). Most used items for this trip: Nude colored woven leather vintage flats (could walk for days in them and they go with everything), BCBG Max Azria Blazer, Neiman Marcus vintage gray silk cardigan).
