#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Calling All Miami Mermaids

Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-Fin-Montauk-Triangl-Miami-Mermaids-Title

If you live in Miami, there is a 99-percent chance you are a mermaid. We know we definitely are based on our affinity for salty air and sandy feet. Regardless of the season, you will find us every weekend beach-side working on our tans and showing off the bikini body we work so hard to maintain year-round (thanks, ClassPass!). [Read more…]

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Frozen But Chic

Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-Frozen-But-Chic-Title

Our tropical selves welcomed the beginning of the new year playing in the snow, instead of the sand. Nevertheless, freezing mountain top temperatures and a winter wind chill could not sway us from keeping our last look of 2014 true to Miami style. After all, our Golden State of Mind is to dress for the weather we want, not the weather we have. So, to celebrate NYE, we slipped into a stylish House of Harlow 1960 romper we picked up last week at PacSun at the Falls and ventured out to Windham Mountain to show the lovely people of The Catskills how Miami-ans do glamour. We may have been frozen, but at least we looked chic!

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – A Holiday Shopping Hail Mary

1-Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-A-Holiday-Shopping-Hail-Mary-Title

Procrastination is a disease that prays on the innocent worldwide but here in Miami, it plagues its victims at another level. Miami is a place where arriving on time means pulling up at least an hour late. It’s a place where everyone subscribes to “why get done today what can be done mañana“.  And, it’s a place where holiday shopping begins only a few days before the holidays.

Blame your half finished shopping list on the lack of snow or your busy social calendar this month – we don’t judge. As of Friday we were on the same boat so, on the contrary, we totally sympathize. Better yet, we come to you with a solution for your holiday hitch: an afternoon at The Falls. [Read more…]

#ThankYouMiami for (Holiday) Fashion

Thank-You-Miami-For-Holiday-Fashion-Target-Style-Forever21-Title

Another holiday season, another round of parties at which to let your Miami fashion sense shine! This year we’re all about showcasing a subdued South Beach sexy. No, we’re not talking bandage dresses or sky-high heels so put those back in your closet immediately. Our style inspiration today comes in the shape of sheer blouses and kitten heels. More Audrey Hepburn, less Aubrey O’Day.

Our holiday outfit is based on two pieces we picked up during emergency fashion runs. So, if you’re behind on putting together your holiday outfits, there is hope for you yet! The first piece is a textured black blouse, which we found at Target on our way to last month’s Fashion Meets Fine Dining event. The second is a black A-line skirt from Forever21 that we purchased an hour before our cameo on The Ellen Show. We love both pieces because they are basics that are versatile and are flattering on most body shapes. Plus, as you’ll see below, the skirt is perfect for twirling!

The day we shot this look we were headed to a matinee showing of The Nutcracker so we chose to go with an all-black combo. However, if you’re inspired by the holiday spirit, feel free to choose a brighter or more festive color for either piece. You can also play around with the shoe color to find one that better suits the celebrations. We chose these particular Steve by Steve Madden heels because we love how this shade of blue contrasts with black pieces. “Irregardless” of what you choose, remember to have fun and enjoy the holidays – after all, they only come once a year!

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Fashion Meets Fine Dining

1-Fashion-Meets-Fine-Dining-Pescecane-Love-Shopping-Miami-Runway

Tucked away in the quickly-growing downtown of the Town of Surfside is Pescecane Ristorante, an Italian restaurant with marvelous food and a welcoming atmosphere. These two components alone are how Miami normally turns meals into dining experiences. However, Pescecane is blowing normal dining experiences out of the water by adding a third component: fashion. Two weeks ago, the restaurant successfully executed their first-ever “Fashion Meets Fine Dining”, an event which brings a fashion show and pop-up to the restaurant’s dining room during peak dining hours.
