My Day With Victoria’s Secret

{Wearing: Victoria’s Secret Hello Bombshell Denim Jacket. Alo Leggings. Andre Assous Espadrilles.}  A invitation to lunch at Casa Tua is one thing. A really good thing. A lunch invitation to Casa Tua with Victoria’s Secret, well that’s something else entirely. The brand came to town for the launch of its latest fragrance, Bombshell Seduction, and threw a stunning lunch at not just anywhere, but my favorite restaurant in all of Miami, Casa Tua. The table was overrun with fresh flowers. Personalized, engraved bottles of perfume served as a place cards. And, oh yeah, a Victoria’s Secret model of the tall, blonde, perfect variety dined with us. Her name was Romee Strijd. Perhaps you’ve heard of her? I kid, of course you have. Never before in my life I have felt so short. And so brunette. Variety is the spice of life, no? But the fun didn’t stop there. After lunch…Read More

A Reminder to Just Breathe

{Wearing: c/o Imbodhi Astra bodysuit. Necklace: c/o The Shift by Komusō Design. Photographed By Milly Jane Harris} Sometimes, when it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders and everything feels out of whack and you feel like ducking and running for cover, the most important thing to do is the thing you most often forget; to breathe. It sounds so simple and yet it’s not. Our body voluntarily does it for us for a reason. If left up to us, we’d be blue in the face—a lot. When I heard about The Shift by Komusō Design, a cylinder-shaped charm with holes that allows you to center your breath by simply breathing into it, I jumped at the chance to feature it. We all need a reminder to inhale the good and exhale the bad. And this is a beautiful, zen-filled way in which to do so. Plus,…Read More

All Adidas Everything and the History of the Wynwood Boombox

{Wearing: Head-to-toe Adidas from ASOS. Photographed By Milly Jane Harris} If you’re going to wear head-to-toe Adidas, including an Adidas track suit, which I scored on super mega sale from ASOS, and take a pic of it, it’s probably best to head to that oversized boom-box over in Wynwood. Some things are just meant to be. Eons ago, someone had the where with all to turn a giant slab in Wynwood into a boombox. That someone’s name was Sonni, which he originally did in 2010. Originally, it was supposed to be a camera because of it’s shape, but in a way cooler twist of fate, it became a musical homage to the city. And then someone painted over it, as these things go. Another version of a boombox made it’s way to the same slab  in Basel 2013, courtesy of Chor Boogie and Trek 6. It’s a tribute to Miami’s history with…Read More

Stepping Out in Andre Assous

{Wearing: Jacket: c/o Tricia Fix. Shoes: c/o Andre Assous Tamsin Nappa Sandal, available at Macy’s. Photographed By Milly Jane Harris.}   Oh Miami, and our unfulfilled fashion cravings. We long to wear boots, but your sweltering temps and humidity, you make it nearly impossible. Then, Andrea Assous comes along and creates sandals with a boot-ish feel and all is right in the Southernmost State. I’m loving these Tamsin Nappa Sandals. They go with jeans. They go with dresses. They go with shorts. You see where I’m going with this. They go with everything. And you can still show off whatever nail polish on your toes that trending. Finally, someone who gets a Florida girl’s footwear needs. Thanks, Andrea Assous. This post is sponsored by TaoTronics. The thoughts and opinions, well, those are mine. All mine.

The One-Stop Shop for All Your Holiday Party Looks: Sawgrass Mills

And boom! Just like that, it’s holiday party season. You don’t need to just one thing to wear, you need lots of things to wear. For endless fetes, dinners, brunches, eves and ringings in. A one-stop shop is your best way to pull all this off. And that’s where Milly, I and Sawgrass Mills come in. We headed to the largest outlet mall in the U.S. to shop all the holiday looks you from the end of 2017 to the very beginning of 2018. We shopped the luxurious designer outlets at Colonnade. We perused the endless outlets inside. Along the along the way, we found pieces we think you’ll love (and work into the rest of your wardrobe long after the holidays have gone). I was smitten with a Valentino dress that works perfectly for ringing in a new 365. Milly knocked it out of the park in the headwear…Read More

It’s Heeeereeeee: Art Basel 2017 and the Faena Kickoff

{Ginger and the technicolor dreamcoat, which is actually my new fluffy coat from Rebel. Thx, for the pic, Serge.} And here we are. It’s Art Basel, even though Art Basel hasn’t even started yet. And what a wonderful thing it is. This time of year in Miami is an absolute gift. Yes, the traffic is horrible. Yes, you wait in line to wait in another line to wait in yet another line, but it’s all worth it. The weather is divine. The art is inspiring and, well, there really isn’t anything like this on earth. Last night Faena kicked off Miami Art Week with a VIP preview. And let me tell you, beneath the big full moon, with the cool ocean breeze, seeing these installations as a band, outfitted with fire dancers, marched us from installation to installation, ending in a kaleidoscope-projected room inside Faena Forum, where roller skaters outfitted…Read More

Extreme Beauty: Laser Facials The Revisit

{Wearing: Emma Dress: c/o NomadTribe from the PlayNomad Collection} Being pregnant, living in Florida, taking birth control—there is so much in life that effects your skin. Trust me, it’s taken a lot of work to get my skin to look like the photo above. And that’s me doing my own makeup with no retouching. Pretty much as real as it gets. That’s being said, it’s been awhile since I’ve had a laser facial, so I decided another round to get my skin back to glowing was a must. I headed back to Vivid Face for Smooth and Brighten Vivids. While I’ve finally got my hormones to chill out with the breakouts, I’ve noticed some pigmentation issues. Time to clear those up. One of the best ways to those is with laser treatments. This marks my eighth round of facials with Vivid Face. And I’m so happy with the results, especially now that the…Read More

It’s My Blog-iversary

{Wearing: Dress: c/o Lilac and Lilies Boutique. Bracelets: c/o Yvonne Rose Jewelry Watch: c/o Timex. Shoes: T.J. Maxx. Hair: c/o Contesta Rock Hair. Makeup: c/o Hippy Glow. Photographed by KarGar Ohh Snap at Espanola Way.} Put on this fancy dress from Lilac and Lilies Boutique and I’m ready to shake things up. Why? Because today, 11/11, marks the sixth anniversary of Electric Blogarella. Holy shit, I’ve been blogging for six years now. That’s six trips around the sun. That’s 2,190 days. That’s a lot—and I mean a lot—of blog posts. Enough, I’m fairly sure to make me an OG Miami blogger. It’s also a lot of change. Since my first post back on 11/11/11, where I got the opportunity to go one-on-one with Diane Von Furstenberg, this world has grown and morphed, died off, been reborn and exploded. For instance, Instagram was barely a thing way back then. Now, Instagram it’s the thing. Until the…Read More

It’s Wynwood Fashion Night Out

{Wearing: Emma Dress: c/o NomadTribe from the PlayNomad Collection (where 100 percent of proceeds go toward helping young musicians. Sneakers: Vans.} Remember how much fun Fashion Night Out was back in the day? Well, you don’t have to remember any more. You can relive it. Tonight, actually. Wynwood is reviving the night where fashion, art and culture collide at Wynwood Fashion Night Out. Stores like NomadTribe, whose sustainable dress I’m wearing above, will offer discounts on their wares. It’s a great way for you to put money back into our community after the mess Irma left here. Then, the event will conclude with a fashion show at Mana Wynwood at 9 p.m. The event will also kick off a month-long donation drive at Lotus House, which helps homeless women and children. So if you need to make space for all the new you’re bringing in from the deals at Fashion…Read More
