The other night, for a friend’s birthday party, I found myself dancing all night long to David Bowie tunes at a bar I hadn’t been to in ages. And it was a blast. Firstly, I haven’t been to Purdy Lounge in like a decade—at least. I think the last time I was there was back when I used to work above it at the Zink magazine Miami office. Back then, The Wordy Girl’s Maria and I created what I guess you could call the skeletal outline of our blogs in a section that appeared in the early years of the magazine called What the Hell. In it, we did stupid things like fed Sea Monkeys parmesan cheese and then wrote about it, road tested just how orange self-tanners can make you and interviewed people like Bobby Trendy (from Anna Nicole). Clearly, hard-hitting journalism. But it was fun, so fun. Back then, late nights at the office sent the sounds of the music below up through the floor and every now and again, I’d find myself at the bar because well, FOMO. The good old days. The other night those good old days got relived in a pair of stunning red shoes, which I scored at Tarbay, a new Brickell boutique that’s packed with every amazing handmade accessory you could think of. The best part of dancing the night away in platforms? Your feet don’t hurt. Toss in a cute gold bracelet like mine from Tous and, well, fashion meets a fantastic night out. It was great to relive those old times, and I supposed a perfect homage to Bowie, my own anyway. Here’s to putting on your red shoes and dancing the blues.
