Warming Up

{Wearing: Jacket: Vintage. Lace top: Jeans: Zara. Herba Earrings: c/o Tarbay. Bag: The Find Auctions. Hair: c/o Sassoon. Photographed by me.} In the words of Game of Thrones: “Winter is coming.” In Miami, that can mean very little. We do what we can to “winter-ize,” but often times we’re left romping around in shorts and boots, pretending a great gust of wind gave us reason to wear said footwear. That’s where color comes in. A vampy lipstick, a dark polish and a warm, rich hair tone—that’s the Miami girls winter wardrobe. Subtle, but it’s still our seasonal transition. I recently hooked up with Sassoon in Miami Beach for a winter hair enhancement—because you know, the sun hasn’t been out in days and well, it’s below 90. A day or two of autumn/winter may just be in the works. As I headed into the South Beach salon, I got the scoop on Three…Read More



Fantastic Four

{Wearing: Dress: Style Mafia. Boots: Valentino. Necklace: Vintage. Leopard Clutch Bag: c/o T.J. Maxx. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} Today marks four years since my first post on Electric Blogarella. Back then, I had no idea just exactly where this Miami fashion blog would take me. The ride has been unbelievable. Truly. But after four years, sometimes, it’s hard to come here again and again and find a new story to tell, open up about myself, make the decision to put myself out there. There have been so many times when I’ve had so much to say and stopped myself (mostly for the better). And other times when I’ve had nothing to say and had to find words, realizing that they were there all along, they just needed some help finding the light of day. For the first time in years, however, I didn’t feel as inspired as years past when it came…Read More



Short Sited

{Wearing: Crop top: Pants: Petite Graphic Chevron Cropped Wide Leg Pant c/o Rafaella. Hat: c/o Laundry by Shelli Segal. Shoes: Aldo. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} Big hat, big shoes, little top, little pants—it’s all about playing with dimensions. I put these Rafaella pants, which are cropped, with a cropped top. And because I’m kind of cropped too—in the height department anyway—I paired them with giant wedges and a big ‘ole hat, which actually works because fall in Miami came for maybe 1.3 seconds and now it’s summer again. I could be wrong, though. Prove me wrong, please. Until then, I’ll still be sporting resort looks well into fall and probably winter, too. Speaking of dimensions, I like that Rafaella has a petite section on its site. There’s something about having every pair of pants I own altered so they don’t drag the ground, well, frustrating. At least with…Read More



Something Juicy

{Wearing: Top: LuluLemon. Pants: c/o Colosseum. Juice: c/o Blueprint Cleanse C.A.B. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} Fact: I have been downing Halloween candy like it’s some sort of unpaid, yet overly fulfilling full-time job. Just shoveling it in. Me vs the bag of candy corn. I win! Me vs a bag of ChupaChups. I win again! Me vs a bag of the new peanut butter Snickers. Damn those things are good. I win (and I lose all at the same time). Clearly, I need an intervention. And that’s where Blueprint Cleanse stepped in. I used to do a fast seasonally, but I haven’t done one in a long, long time. And it’s not that I’m trying to drop weight. I’m fine with how much I weight. What I’m not OK with is how I’ve become Godzilla and all the candy in the world is Japan. Things have gotten so bad, I caught…Read More



A Leg Up

  {Wearing: Faux Leather Ponte Legging: c/o Peony and Me. Asymmetrical Faux Leather Top: c/o Peony and Me. Necklace: c/o Express. Shoes: Steve Madden. Bag: Kore. Photographed by me.} As a yogi, I live in leggings. Anytime I can find a reason to wear them outside of my warrior one life, I revel in it, always keeping in mind should I need to bust into a scorpion pose, I’m ready to roll. These leather-ette leggings from Peony and Me are a case in point. The problem with leggings, however, is outside of yoga life, you have to find the right top to wear them with. Otherwise, you risk looking like, well, yeah, no. Brilliantly, Peony and Me created tops that pair perfectly with its leggings, most of which have a mixed media component that I love, like leather-ish and chiffon. I wore a complete Peony and Me look yesterday to Wynwood and…Read More



The Road to Glenwood Springs … My Colorado Adventure Part 2

{Wearing: Romper: c/o Market. Belt: c/o Ramona LaRue. Necklace: c/o T.J. Maxx. Hat: Vintage. Photographed by Jorge Camaraza.} With waffles, pastries, bagels and juice—the continental breakfast at Hampton by Hilton is no joke—fueling our morning, we sauntered out to the bike. The road to Glenwood Springs lie ahead. Getting there was our goal for day two. The excitement of day one just behind us, the thrill of what was to come propelling us forward. The day was crisp for summer, but given my Miami roots, my perception was bound to be off. I was glad I had my motorcycle jacket with me, although the idea of packing a jacket to begin with seemed ludicrous. The rest of our “luggage” was crammed into the fringe-adorned saddle bags. I had but my one pair of shoes, my motorcycle boots, on my feet, as I hopped on the back of the bike and…Read More



The 2015 Halloween Reveal

Yay, Halloween! Back in September, Mills and I hatched a plan for her to be Jem from Jem and the Holograms for Halloween. To go along with her costume, I decided to be Synergy, her computer that turned her from Jerrica to Jem. So, how does Milly even know who Jem and the Holograms are, since it’s an obscure cartoon from the ’80s? A few years back, I found the show on Netflix on a rainy afternoon when kid and I had zero motivation to even get out of bed. I showed her a few episodes and then blew her mind by heading to the garage and pulling out a couple of the original Jem dolls. (It’s all part of my ploy to give my kid my ’80s childhood.) Since then, she’s been a fan, which I love. I was obsessed with Jem as a kid and probably would have…Read More



Yoga That Saves

  {Wearing: Leggings: c/o Colosseum leggings from the spring 2016 collection. Top: Lululemon. Photographed by me.} How much am I obsessing over these new Colosseum yoga pants from the upcoming spring collection? A ton. Stripes are always a go-to for me, because they’re classic and easy to funk up. I couldn’t wait to get them on and strike a pose. And speaking of fashion you love, remember when you were a kid and you got a new backpack or pair of sneakers or sweatshirt that was your favorite thing? You couldn’t wait to toss it on, wear it to school and show it off. It was the best thing in your whole closet and wearing it gave you swagger. Somewhere in your lifelong closet there an items that’s become part of the fabric of your childhood memories. Sadly, not all kids are lucky enough to have something like that, which…Read More



Who is That Masked Lady

{Wearing: Catwoman Eco Mask: c/o Vivo Masks.} It’s almost heeeere. My most favorite of all the holidays (yes, even Christmas). I love Halloween, in a probably not normal sort of way. This past weekend, I realized why. And it’s not just because I can unearth the weird collection of costumes I have at my house and wear them in public with opera gloves and a beautiful metal mask like this one from Vivo Masks. It’s because Halloween is a tradition in my family. This past week, my mother sent me endless photos of zombie heads, body bags, homemade floating ghosts and a pic of herself dressed as death with glowing red eyes. No, I didn’t grow up in the Adams’ family. My mom, who lives in the middle of nowhere in a giant forest, turned the woods around her into a haunted house for a Halloween party. And, based on…Read More
