Holiday Shopping: Making a List & Checking it Twice

{Wearing: Military Jacket: c/o Pure Fix by Tricia. Dress: Vintage. Shoes: Bib + Tuck.} It’s the most wonderful time of the year, which also happens to be the same time of year that the month goes into turbo hyper drive and days start to fly by like they have some sort of rocket strapped to them. As it stands now there are just 10 days until Christmas. TEN! That’s less than two weeks. Cue the need to strap a rocket to your backside and get in gear on this whole gift-buying thing. If you’re dragging on tackling that holiday shopping list, I’m here to help. I recently made the trip to Sawgrass Mills and knocked out a huge chunk of my list in one afternoon. Now I know what you Miamians may be thinking: Sawgrass Mills, that’s sooooooo far away. But really, it isn’t, especially when you consider what you…Read More

Let’s Workout

{Wearing: c/o Peony Brocade Sports Bra and Brocade Print Legging in Deep Ultramarine.} In this post-Basel world, I’ve finally caught up on sleep, allowed myself to eat any and everything I wanted for a whole week, put up the Christmas tree, tackled some of the holiday shopping and squeezed in a few workouts. But there’s still so much left to do: holiday cards, mailing gifts, balancing school-less kid and work, which is why multitasking is imperative this time of year. And that’s where the invite below falls into play. Tuesday, December 15, I’m hosting Fitness, Fashion and Fun with Peony at Flying Lizard, a cool, new athleisure boutique, and JugoFresh. Pop over tomorrow between 8:30 and 11:30 a.m. for a free workout class, ranging from full-body to yoga, then grab a complimentary juice and do some shopping. You can pick up cool looks for giftees on your list and snag…Read More

Art Frazzle

{Wearing: Top: Vintage. Pants: Alvin Valley. Shoes: Steve Madden. Earrings: Vintage. Bag: c/o T.J. Maxx.} It’s heeeeerrrreeee. It’s been here, actually. Each year Art Basel‘s start date creeps up earlier and earlier. So, here I am on day three of Art Week Miami, blogging before I head out into the storm. I kicked off the “official” start to Basel in this little ensemble at Elle Decor on Tuesday, where I spied beautiful bedrooms, bathrooms and closets I could potentially live in. Afterward, I crept to Wynwood to find a mural backdrop because, well, it’s Basel. Then, I filmed a video for Cavaet’s custom-made jeans, also in Wynwood (more on that coming soon), then it was off to the races for event after event after event. By the end of day one, I realized I had spent 15-plus hours in the same pair of heels. And that was just the first…Read More

Warming Up

{Wearing: Jacket: Vintage. Lace top: Shopblush.com. 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: Shopblush.com. 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
