Cool Brand Alert

So I just discovered this new brand Pam & Gela and I’m kinda hooked. These designers are the creators of the former Juicy Couture phenomenon. Now that Juicy is no more, these ladies are back for more and I must say I’m really digging their new aesthetic. This line is like a fab mix of sporty, rocker, boho chic with lots of Cali vibes. They carry the line in Department stores, but my Maxxinista self scored these fab terry shorts at TJ Maxx for $40! They’re a dream. Not only are they super comfy, but the studds add an edge and versatility that I love. Here, I styled them with my trusty chambray shirt and pumps. Who says terry shorts are just for lounging?!

Until next time!

Miami Beach International Fashion Week

I went to the Miami Beach International Fashion Week show last Friday and had a fabulous time. I really enjoyed the exhibitions prior to the show. They did a wonderful job of choosing the most original hand-crafted items from Vintage inspired hand-beaded bags (deserves a separate post, soon to come!) to custom Swarovski covered shoes. Below are some pictures of, another favorite of mine, beautiful hand-made leather clutches by Paola Peres ( I loved that the ribbon on the clutches is removable and made to be able to match your look! Enjoy the pictures of some of my favorite pieces in the show!
