What You Need to Know About Peter Pilotto for Target

{Bag and Shoes: Peter Pilotto for Target. Pants: Lululemon.} 7 a.m. and I’m waiting outside of Midtown Miami Target like a loon for the Peter Pilotto collection to launch. About eight other people were there waiting with me until moments before opening when the crowd grew to about 30, including one woman who had no interest in the collection but wanted to return some rotten avocados. (at 8 a.m. … on a Sunday—god bless her). Before the doors open, an employee comes out to inform us we can only have three of the same item and there is no running or pushing. Everyone giggles and swears they would never do that. But I shopped Missoni for Target with you bitches. I know what you are capable of. The doors open and we’re off, speed racing like octogenarian mall walkers to the rack. I grab a handful of things that are…Read More



Peter Pilotto for Target Hits Tomorrow

Just when I said the designer collab was dead and I was done dragging myself out of bed to stand in line for clothes I refuse to wear weeks later because everyone and their mom owns them, Target all up and releases the Peter Pilotto for Target collection and I go gaga for crop tops. Add in the fact that Net-a-Porter is also releasing the collection and my interest in the quality department is piqued. The collection launches tomorrow and since yellow has become my new favorite shade for spring, God knows I’ll be in line at 7-something waiting to get my hands on that crop top everyone and their aunt Sue wants/needs/must have. I really want to love the pants that go with the top, but I can’t deal with the fact that they aren’t a skinny silhouette. The black and white crop top number though is adorbs. Now…Read More



My Date With Tous

{Dress: Rebel Miami. Hat: H&M. Belt: Alexis. Necklace, Bracelet and Bag: Tous. Booties: Cynthia Rowley. Photographed by Gio Alma.} Last Thursday, I was invited to spend the day with the Miami blogger crew and Tous. In what may be the best Thursday ever, I boarded a yacht at 9 a.m. at the Epic Marina, was handed a mimosa, tried on jewelry and bags, had a day-long chat fest with the girls, was made over by a glam squad and enjoyed a dinner overlooking the Miami skyline. Here, a week later, is my ultimate throwback Thursday post: My date with Tous.   9 a.m. and we’re getting ready to board the Y Charter Miami yacht. That’s me with the day’s cast of fashionable characters: Erika Thomas of Blah Blah Blonde, Kelly Saks of Kelly’s Kloset, Haya Tetroashvili of Good Good Gorgeous, Kristin Clark of Living in Color Print and Daniela Ramirez of Nany’s Coset….Read More



“Cause in the End I’m a Sensible Girl …”

{Sarah Asymmetrical Maxi Dress: c/o Calypso St. Barth. Necklace: c/o Isa Boutique. Bracelets: Mixture of vintage and Alexis Bittar.

I’m Joining the Navy

{Vest:Vintage D&G. Candiza Paisley Printed Silk Pant: c/o Calypso St. Barth. Shoes: Steve Madden Marlenee. Bag: Vintage. Photographed by moi.} Radiant orchid may be Pantone’s 2014 color of the year, but this season I’m personally feeling the blues—the navy blues. Normally I’m a black/grey kind of girl with a smattering of red/maroon here and there, but my past three shopping trips have lead to a case of the blues. I know, I know—giant leap into the color spectrum there, Ginger. But hey, at least I’m venturing out of my comfort zone. I scored these mostly navy harem pants at Calypso St. Barth in Bal Harbour Shops. Because they are made out of silk, they feel like wearing a little piece of heaven, pajama heaven without the look of Pajama Jeans (That’s a VH-1 I Love the Oughts episode that we will look back on and hang our heads in shame.).

Why I’ll be Watching the Superbowl — No, Hell Did Not Freeze Over

{Hat: Vintage. Shirt: H&M. Necklace: Isa Boutique. Jeans: Rebel Miami. Superbowl Scarf: c/o Gypsy 05. Photographed by moi.} Fact: I normally don’t give a rat’s patootie about football, so the Superbowl is just another Sunday. But this year I’m so excited about Superbowl 48 I’m ready to—wait, I’m not really excited about the game, per say. I just wanted to watch the commercials. Why? Because I’m going to be in one during the third quarter of the game. Be on the lookout for the Vapor Zone commercial, airing across the Southeast, because I’m in it. To celebrate, I’ve decided to give away Gypsy 05′s Superbowl Scarves created for the big game at the commercial viewing party at Wood Tavern on Superbowl Sunday. Here’s how you can win: The first fan from each team to show up to the soiree in Wynwood and say hey to me gets the scarf of their choice. There’s…Read More



Saving Face

{Me, sans makeup.} Fact: I am terrified of facials. Petrified. Frozen with fear. I know, it’s the most ridiculous thing in the entire world to be afraid of, but trust me I am. It all dates back to a decade ago, to a facial situation that left me at the dermatologists office begging for a prescription to undo what had been done to me. It took PRESCRIPTION MEDS to get my skin back to normal, prescription meds! My forehead was a virtual rough terrain for a Range Rover test drive. If I were the eighth dwarf, my name would have been Bumpy. It wasn’t pretty, and, worse yet, it took forever and three weeks to get rid of it. With prescription meds, people. Forget aesthetician, this lady was a mess-thetician. Yeah, so that’s why I’m mortified of facials. But when Neiman Marcus recently invited me to get a facial with a…Read More



Lululemon Colab Lands in the U.S.

{Future Varsity Pullover Sweatshirt: c/o Lululemon Colab. Leggings: Lululemon. Beanie: c/o Twitten. Shoes: Vans. Future Varsity Bra (seen below): c/o Lululemon Colab. Collaborative photography effort by me and kiddo.} Behold, Lululemon Colab for the first time ever in the States! What’s Colab, you ask? As a self-professed Lululemon junkie, I have to admit I had no idea what it was either. Apparently, there is a magical factory in Canada that makes what is basically bespoke Lululemon. This heaven on earth is known as the Lululemon Lab. And for the first time ever, the Lab released a collection, called Colab, which made its U.S.A. debut last week. The collection arrived in the Southeast at Lululemon South Miami. And I was there, hosting the event, to help introduce Lululemon fans to the line. The collection is both cool and functional. Think zippers concealing hoods, extended sides of mesh and more. Each of the pieces, which include two pairs of pants, a hoodie, a sweatshirt, a skirt, two tanks and a sports…Read More



The Best V-Neck Tee Ever

{Moto Jacket: H&M. Tee: Calypso St. Barth Isabel V-Neck Linen Tee . Jeans: Mossimo. Booties: Saint Laurent. Necklace: c/o InPink. Photographed by Me.} Behold! I’ve found the greatest tee ever. For years I’ve been scooping up v-necks, hoping to find the holy grail of tees, but they’d fall apart in the wash, get holes, pucker at the shoulders, require me to use the iron post wash. Somehow, they always turned into an epic failure of a shirt. But alas, I’ve finally done it. I’ve tasted the perfection that is Calypso St. Barth’s perfect v-neck tee.  What makes it soooooo great, you ask? The linen fabric, the deep, plunging tee, it’s perfect hip-hitting length, the fact that it’s cut slim so it’s not a bulky disaster. It’s a pricey little shirt ($75), but considering how often I wear it, it’s worth the funds. Is it slated to become the (Seinfeld reference)…Read More
