Purple Reign

Sad but true, my friend and local designer Lorie Lester closed up her shop on Biscayne Boulevard on the Upper East Side. Thankfully, Lorie isn’t disappearing from the Miami fashion scene. She’s setting up in a warehouse and promises sample sale goodness. A long-time fan of her line, I dropped into the store in its last days and scored a few steals at 60-percent off. Here’s the purple and black lace pants I wore to the opening of The Blacksmith this past Friday. That was, by the way, an awesome shindig of the old school Miami Beach variety.

Thanks to Bdry Blow Dry Bar for the ah-may-zing makeup (cuz you know I can’t get anywhere close to a smokey eye like this on my own).
