What I Wore to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim: Seven Looks in Five Days

Raise your hand if you have post traumatic swim week disorder. I don’t even know what day it is anymore. I had a blast documenting the Lycra invasion that took over Miami Beach for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, but I promise this will be my second to last swim week-related post. And I plan to make the last one funny, so it won’t be as painful. Anyhoo, here’s a look at what I wore this past week to and from the shows. I tried to keep cool in the blazing inferno that is Miami in July, hence the mid-day change-a-roos.


{The pre-shows: Hot pink boho skirt retrieved from Ebay, Forever 21 tank, vintage necklaces, Lola James necklace, vintage purse, Steve Madden wannabe shoes from Payless. Worn to Ready, Set, Swim and Cosmo en Espanol at Soho House.}

{Day 1: Alexis top and pants, vintage necklace, bangle and purse, Jimmy Choo shoes. Worn to Bal Harbour Blogger Brunch at Soho House.}

{Day 2: Marshall’s sheer top, RaMona LaRue bandeau, Forever 21 pajama bottoms worn as shorts, Steven Madden wannabe shoes from Payless—perfectly priced for ruining in the sand at the shows—vintage doctor bag purse, vintage bangles and necklace. Worn to Bloggers Night Out at the Betsy Hotel and Agua Bandita, Poko Pano, Dolores Cortes and Vitamin A at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim at The Raleigh.}

{Day 3 a.m.: Touch Boutique top, linen shorts I scored at a hole in the wall in New York, vintage necklace and bangles, Alexis Bittar bangle, Jewels by Dunnmermaid necklace, vintage purse, Aldo shoes. Worn to Lee+Lani style Lounge at Salon Allure at the W.}

{Day 5: Vintage top, Tucker skirt, vintage necklace, bag and shoes and Amorium hand jewelry. Worn to style lounges at The Tides and Soho House, Wildfox at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim at The Raleigh and the Brazilian collective at SLS.}
{Yup, I totally gave in and wore flats on the last day for the first half of the day. My feet were thankful.}

Now if you’ll excuse me, someone has some laundry to do …
