Christmas in July

{Wearing: Hat: c/o Laundry by Shelli Segal. Top: Vintage. Shorts: Blush, similar to these. Shoes: BCBG. Glossybox: c/o Glossybox. Photographed by Milly Jane Harris.} If someone gave me a piece a paper and asked me to write down 10 things that give me unbridled happiness, one of those things would be getting stuff in the mail. I don’t know what it is about packages in the mail, but it evokes a similar emotional response to a kindergarten class all hopped up on Publix birthday cake. I’m convinced half of the reason why online shopping even works is because of the serotonin rush to the head you feel when that boxes arrives. Ordering something from Amazon leaves me like a dog at the window for days on end just waiting for UPS, Fed Ex, USPS, hell, even DLH to bring me stuff. And when it arrives, I, much like Fido, storm the door…Read More

The Caitlyn Jenner

{Wearing: Romper: Kore. Shoes: Zara via Bib + Tuck. Necklace: Joanna Paige. Bag: c/o Furla. Hair: c/o Rik Rak Salon. Photographed by Maria Tettamanti at Sagamore, The Art Hotel.} Meet my new favorite thing in my closet. I call this little number “The Caitlyn Jenner,” because that neckline forever belongs to Caitlyn, thanks to her Vanity Fair cover. I sported my Caitlyn during the first night of Swim Week, where she made it through the night, but my shoes—god bless them—made an unfortunate departure from wardrobe rotation that evening. It was somewhere around stop number 11 (oh, Swim Week) where, for whatever reason, shoe decided to call it a night. And by calling it a night, I mean literally falling apart while on my foot. I walked out of the Edition with one shoe on and one shoe swinging around my ankle like a monkey on a tree. But because it’s Swim…Read More



Let Me Do You a Favor

  {Behold, Favor—the brilliant new app now in Miami that brings you whatever you desire, like cheese from Morton’s.} I never write about food. Juice, yes. Candy, sometimes. Food, nope. Why? I’m just not a foodie. That being said, you know when I’m taking pics of food and writing about it, something’s up. Something’s good. Damn good. That something is Favor. What’s Favor, you ask? It’s a lifeline that recently launched in Miami. And now that I know about it I won’t be able to live without it. Here’s a little scenario so you get the bigger picture: It’s Thursday night. I’m heavily into a FX marathon of Married, I’m wearing the kind of PJs that are so comfy but janky I’ve vow to god they will never see the light of day, my hair is twisted up into something that makes the man bun look socially acceptable and I’m…Read More

The Great Blogger Slumber Party

{Maria Tettamanti, Erika Thomas, Kelly Saks, Daniela Ramirez and me—all wearing Eberjey pjs at Sagamore, The Art Hotel. Photographed by me.} This is the true story, of five fashion bloggers, picked to live in a penthouse during Swim Week to find out what happens when girls stop being polite and start getting real. The Real World: Sagamore Slumber Party. This episode’s cast consisted of myself, Erika Thomas of Blah Blah Blonde, Daniela Ramirez of Nany’s Klozet, Kelly Saks of Kelly’s Kloset and Maria Tettamanti of The Wordy Girl. Just as The Real World of old like to typecast its roomies, I guess ours would go a little something like this: The funny one: Maria The hot blonde one: Erika The famous one: Nany The perfect one: Kelly And Me It was a whole mash-up of personalities. But unlike the Real Housewives of New York, no one tried to wrestle (verbally…Read More



Swim Week: The Recap

{Wearing my favorite look from Swim Week on the night of Mara Hoffman’s presentation: Romper: c/o Kore. Necklace: c/o Kore. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (old). Bag: Chanel. Photographed at Sagamore The Art Hotel.} Another Swim Week. Come and gone. For more than a decade now, I’ve been covering this Lycra-laden week. But this year was different. When I first heard IMG pulled out of Swim Week, my heart sunk. I have always enjoyed that Miami had a home on the fashion map—in my own home, nonetheless. I love going to the shows. I love seeing the fashion, the models, the hair, the makeup. I love going backstage and interviewing the designers. I love that I get to report on something before the rest of the world knows its coming. If there was no IMG, did that mean there would be no Swim Week? Soon after the earth-shattering fashion announcement I heard…Read More



Post-Workout Essentials

{My post-workout essentials: P.A.M.pered Ginger from JugoFresh and Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer.} {This is the only pic I snapped of myself at Flybarre. Why? As a reminder that rubber balls are not your friend.} What do you do when Swim Week comes to town and you are forced to gawk at models half your age covered in what basically equates to publicly legal nude? You start working out like a beast two days before the shows start, of course. Thursday, before Lycra overload made its Miami descent, I hit Flybarre at Flywheel in Sunset Harbor for the first time ever. I’ve done barre before so I knew what was coming. Well, kind of. I mean, can you ever truly prepare yourself for the kind of workout that causes your legs to shake so violently you start to wonder when and where you lost control of your own limbs? So,…Read More

Destination Miami

{Wearing: Dress: Style Mafia Juna Dress. Sunnies: Vogue Eyewear. Necklace: Vintage.} I love Miami. I love everything about it. OK, maybe not the road rage-fueled drivers. And maybe not the endless parking tickets or the red light cameras that bust me every. single. time. But I love Miami. I love its zest for life. Its culture. Its … just watch the video, which Vogue Eyewear asked me to film for its Destination Miami contest this summer. I give a little tour of some of my favorite places this city has to offer, like Blo Midtown, Ramona LaRue, Nail Bar, Style Mafia—a Miami girl’s go-tos. And if you aren’t from here and have never been, do yourself a favor and enter the contest. Miami should be everyone’s destination at least once. But don’t be surprised if once you get here you never want to leave. Fifteen years later, that’s my story. And…Read More



War Wounds

{Wearing: Dress: Kore. Shoes: Steve Madden. Bracelet: Vintage. Photographed by Erin Newberg at The Standard Spa Miami Beach.}   When you look at this pic what do you see? Me looking out at the beautiful backdrop at The Standard Spa Miami Beach? Maybe. But when I look at it here’s what I see …   this ugly scar I got a few months back because a girl at a club was kind enough to use my flesh to accidentally extinguish her cigarette as she was coming down the stairs. It bothers me because I love wearing backless things. It bothers me because it’s not pretty. It bothers me because it hasn’t always been there and the way I got it wasn’t going head to head with a shark to save a child’s life, nor was it from rescuing puppies from a burning building. It was because some girl who had…Read More



Kickin’ It

{Wearing: High waisted retro-inspired bikini: The Orchid Boutique. Shoes: Vintage Jeffrey Campbell via Bib + Tuck. Glasses: c/o Woodzee Claudia Pear Wood White Dip. Accessories: The Shop at The Standard Spa Miami Beach. Photographed by Erin Newberg at The Standard Spa Miami Beach.} Is it just me or is Mercury in permanent retrograde? I know that voodoo ended on June 11 and isn’t supposed to start back up again until September 17, but that’s all allegedly because I’ve got a retrograde monkey, who is not only on my back, he’s sitting on my head covering my eyes and ears and basically flinging shit at me from all angles, still. Between Verizon charging me for not returning a phone they said I didn’t have to to a damn Sunpass that keeps getting jacked out of my car, to employment, unemployment, back to employment, flat tires, a busted ac smack in the middle of summer,…Read More
