Art Basel Miami

I’m soooo excited…checking off another bucket list item to close out 2013 with my first trip to Art Basel Miami! I do admit, however, when I first decided to go, I had NO IDEA it was such a scene to be seen. Cue me last week scrambling to figure out what fabulous attire I could bring along! Miami in December? Edgy, tropical, winter? A fashion conundrum to say the least.

Vacation Inspiration: Viceroy Miami

Unexpected color combos make for a thoroughly modern holiday

I guess I must have vacay on the membrane, sitting here in rainy cold weather and wishing I was back in Palm Desert. Looking at photos of Kelly Wearstler’s Viceroy Miami doesn’t exactly help; makes me want to pack up my bags and get out there pronto! I’m definitely missing being somewhere hip and dressing like I’m hip.
