The Mane Attraction

{Wearing: Tee: Gap. Moto jacket: Gap. Rocking a straight GHD mane. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris.} Confession: I use hot rollers on the regular. Why? It’s not because I aspire to be Miss Texas. Nor do I wear my pjs and a scarf over my head when running out for milk. It’s because I’m pretty clueless in the hair department. In fact, having hair is such drama, which is probably why I cut mine off with a whim all the time. But, I’ve managed to make it well over a year and a half without snipping my hair off. And I’m digging the long thing, except for when it comes to styling it. I’m a hot mess. Hence the hot rollers. In some gift from God, Neiman Marcus mailed me a box of GDH’s products to road test. And it was an amazing way to get a firm grip on how…Read More

Face Facts

{Wearing: Hot Pink Metallic Bodycon Crop Top: c/o Blush. Elan White Semi-Sheer Pants: c/o Blush. Shoes: Zara. Necklace c/o Express. Hair and makeup: Davi . Photographed by me.} I have this really bad habit of smiling and laughing. At first, it wasn’t an issue, but as life tumbles along, all those grins and bursts of hysterical laughter start to make little lines here and there. Sure, they are the mark of good times, some of the best, even, but dammit, I have lines on my face. So, REAL TALK: As my 37th year starts to sneak up on me, I decided it was time to erase those lines. Well, some of them anyway. With stellar recommendations from my best bud Erin Newberg, I decided to take my lines to Dr. Marc Epstein to see how we could diminish them. Dr. Marc Epstein’s office is parked just above Villa Azur in Miami…Read More

February Beauty Board: Skin-Centric

My guilty pleasure: Skin creams, masks, potions and other facial notions. Life is super dehydrating, and whatever I can do to add a little moisture back in, well, I’m in. Here are my latest obsessions: I’ve long been a fan of Fresh products. So, when Neiman Marcus mailed me the latest from the line, I was beyond ready to try it out. I started with the Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask. What I like about this is that when life hands you little imperfections, this mask makes you feel better about battling them. The velvety formula has a cooling effect which feels great in addition to everything else it does. From boosting collagen to defending against wrinkle-making free radicals, this mask is great if you’ve put your skin through a little too much. I like this mask as an option before the day starts. A few days later, I…Read More

Getting Booted

{Riding/Rain Boots: c/o Melissa Shoes Lincoln Road. Leggings: Lululemon. Sweater: Gap. Photographed by me.} Clearly, I brought the cold back with me from my vacay. This throwback Thursday boot pic from Breckenridge, Colorado became less of a flashback and more of a fashion must this week when the temps in Miami plummeted. It’s so cold, I actually turned the AC off and debated hitting the heater in the on position. What I most love about the jelly boots from Melissa Shoes, specifically the new permanent store on Lincoln Road, is that they transition from riding boot to rain bootie with the flip of a few snaps. And they were on super mega sale, too, with an additional 20 percent off. While the need for warm boots won’t stick around in Miami for much longer, the fact that they transition into a rain bootie means I’ll be wearing them more often…Read More

Dear, Me …

{Wearing: Lace Jumpsuit: c/o Kore. Shoes: Vintage Yves Saint Laurent from Consign of the Times. Bag: Vintage Oleg Cassini. Photographed by Erin Newberg of MsErinsita}  I recently read a post on Facebook that said, “If you could write a note to your younger self, what would you say in only two words?” Two words is really a lot for me. Well, I guess I mean not a lot. I’m a minimalist when it comes to everything except words. But if I had to cut it down to just two, I think they would be, “Let Go.” When I look back on my younger years, I’m shocked at the ballsy decisions I made and that ability to just let go. So, it’s not the younger me I would give that advice to, but more the me that was a bit older. At just 22 years old, I packed up everything I owned,…Read More

Snow White

{Wearing: Vintage maxi dress. Photographed by me.} I haven’t seen snow in more than two decades—23 years to be exact. I left the snow in Kentucky and moved to Florida when I was 14 and I managed to avoid the cold and everything that comes with it for more than half my life. Why? After you grow up in the frozen tundra that is the Midwest, you tell yourself, well, if I never experience this again, I’m OK with it. And then the time comes when you long for a change of environment, something so different from the beach and sand and sun and surf you see day in and day out. And you start to wonder what it would feel like to actually wear a sweater to stay warm, a place where wooly hats are donned not as fashion statements, but as a means of staying warm. As a…Read More

I Heart Marsala

{Clutch: Kate Spade Bonjour Monsieur Clutch c/o Sawgrass Mills. Candy: Godiva Cherry Cordials c/o Sawgrass Mills. Makeup: Bare Minerals XOXO Kit c/o Sawgrass Mills. Lipstick and Liner: Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing in Bravado and Liner in Thistle c/o Sawgrass Mills. Photographed by me.} {Bra and Matching Panty: Calvin Klein c/o Sawgrass Mills.} As luck would have it, Pantone’s Color of the Year just happens to co-inside with Valentine’s Day. Marsala, the shade of the season, is a deep red, making it a go-to for the heart holiday. I stopped in at Sawgrass Mills and stocked up on all sorts of V-Day essentials in the shade. What would Valentine’s Day be without chocolate? My first stop was Godiva for delish cherry cordials wrapped in Marsala-esque packaging. And at $10, it was a total steal. Kisses and Febrauary 14 go together like Cupid and arrows, so I stopped in at BareMinerals for the…Read More

Women, Wine and Shoes

{Wearing: Dress: Striped Bodycon Dress c/o Blush. Cape: Vintage. Belt: Vintage. Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Pratt -F c/o Joanna Paige. Bag: Hunting Season. Photographed by Erin Newberg of MsErinsita} Yesterday, I had the pleasure of lunching at Women, Wine and Shoes. It was my first year at the charity affair, so I felt a need to step up my shoe game. I decided on these little Jeffrey Campbell numbers from Joanna Paige and let them dictate the rest of my ensemble. The cape was an afterthought, inspired by one of my favorite fashionistas, Elysze Held. She’s always in something black, dramatic, amazing and usually one-of-a-kind. I secretly long to be her (if and when) I grow up. Of course, she was there in her Valentino Rockstud pumps, looking fab as always. In a sea of vintage Channels, Charlotte Olympias and Choos, my pumps held their own. And if it was shoe porn…Read More
