Outfit: Art Basel Jumpsuiting at Design Miami

 I attended the 10th anniversary exhibition of Design Miami at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
This was one of my favorite art events. This event is centered around home design and furnishings. The amount of unique pieces on display from various galleries was incredible.  The Design Visionary award went to famed architect Peter Marino who has collaborated to create retail spaces for Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Chanel, Dior and Bulgari.  His installation featured many of the pieces from his private collection (mostly chairs).

Art Basel: Breakfast with Henri Bendel and Harper's Bazaar

Art Basel Miami 2014
When two fashion powerhouses invite you to breakfast, you jump for joy and arrive with bells on.
Henri Bendel's longevity on the market is a testament to their ability to appeal to the fashionably conscious, traditional woman in all of us.  Harper's Bazaar's editorial prowess and tireless scouting of on-trend style is the reason they've enjoyed top ranks among fashion magazines for so long.
These two hosted a breakfast at SoHo House in Miami that focused on the Henri Bendel Luxe line and the way that social and digital media play a role in this evolving industry.

Bendel Creative Director Pina Ferlisi chatted with us about the Luxe Line.  When developing this line, the goal was to meld high fashion jewelry with the enviable quality of the real thing.  This is the reason that the pieces in the Luxe Line look and feel authentic. The settings (from pave, to asscher, to cushion cut) mimic real-life glamour.  The weight of the pieces is also a factor in their quality.  Semi-precious stones are used in production, including Swarovski crystals.  When all is said and done, this line boasts chic, well made pieces that you're going to want in your velvet lined jewelry drawer.

Today, Henri Bendel is offering 20% off most jewelry and an additional 20% off when you spend $150 or more.  
I wore white, wide-leg Alice & Olivia pants and a black top from Tildon (Nordstrom).  Oh, and can't forget my green velvet heels.

Art Basel Miami 2014: Mijares

art basel miami 2014 mijares

Alexander Mijares is a local artist who was born and raised in Miami.  I am so in love with his artwork! It's dynamic and full of color and energy.  He has been one of my favorites for a long time, which is why I was honored to cover the opening night of his newest series of paintings for Art Basel Miami, 2014.
The exhibit of his most current works features Mijares' trademark geometric, linear style fused with the vibrant colors that he is so well known for.  Nevermind the custom Lambo outside the gallery...

I wore an embellished white silk shift dress by Vera Wang's now defunct sub-brand, Lavender Label. and sparkly shoes by BCBG.  The dress is old, but thew new DVF Cecilia "Ladder Stich Shift" dress is very similar.  I also like this classic embellished shift dress available at Nordstrom from brand Eliza J.

Art Basel 2014 Kris Knight + Gucci

Gucci and the Spinello Projects presented the Kris Knight Smell The Magic Exhibit in Miami's Design District.  This was the unofficial first night of Art Basel 2014 in Miami.  While the city comes alive during Basel, it is probably one of the worst times for traffic in Miami.  Currently the powers that be have managed to have everything, and I mean everything, under construction.  This does make navigating the art scene a bit more difficult, but in the end, it's all offset because we always have a great time and get to experience really interesting people and great vibes.
