Style File: Palm Tree Haven

Good morning!
There's beauty in so much of this city, even in our own backyards.  Miami is paradise, (provided you don't have to commute for more than 4 minutes).  If you're lucky, you don't have to go very far, and can enjoy our palm trees, oceans, and endless summers.

My bestie's baby turned one a few weeks back, and we celebrated with a Hawaiian themed pool party and luau, complete with hula dancers.  I wore this easy summer outfit to get down and dirty with toddlers ;)

The electric blue, palm tree print, screams "Miami Vice," and although not photographed, the dress is backless - making it the perfect sidekick for pool or boat days.  If you're like me though, you'd rather lather on the SPF 100 and sit underneath...what else? A nice, shady palm tree.

Style File: Miami Swim Week with Wildfox

Wildfox is generally one of the most anticipated shows of Miami Swim Week.  This year, instead of their traditional runway show, the brand opted for a nighttime, poolside presentation at the Delano Hotel. While this allowed us to get very close to the action, it was a bit difficult to photograph the looks for you because the lighting was dim, but at times, also very over exposed and harsh.

I can say, that the looks were true to the Wildfox brand; easy, and no-fuss T-shirts, pajama shorts, and crop tops.  Cheeky sayings ("Nobody Owns The Beach") on their tees and swimwear, along with oversized jumpsuits made for a fun and playful atmosphere.

The cuts on the swimwear were pretty cool too - they had styles that tied from underneath the bust, down through the torso, and also showcased halter style tops that would be really great for those among you who are more well endowed :)

In the next coming weeks, when retailers begin to carry the swimsuits that I photographed., I'lll update this post with links to the items.

Style File: Traci Lynn Jewelry

Imagine a business model that allows you to be your own boss, do what you love, and earn more income.

That's the strategy behind Traci Lynn Jewelry; an online direct sales company that allows business-savy women to embark on a journey that will ultimately provide them with flexibility, capital, and the necessary training to succeed in a competitive jewelry market.  Of course, there are options, and you can join as a full-time, part-time or seasonal consultant. 

Traci Lynn Jewelry recently hosted a fantastic launch party at the Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, with over 1000 people in attendance.  Dr. Traci Lynn, the company's CEO (also a motivational speaker) was in attendance.  She is an inspirational woman who began the company with $200 and big aspirations.  Today, it has grown into a booming brand that helps empower women. 

Of course, it helps that the merchandise is pretty adorable!  The jewelry is crafted with Austrian crystals, and other quality materials that look the part but do not break the bank.  You can browse through their latest catalog here and here.The baubles are available for purchase online, or via home or office shows.  If you're interested, take a minute to e-mail a consultant with any questions you may have.  

Take a look at some of the pieces under the cut!

Style File: Swim Week Vibes with Escape Miami, and Bianca Coletti Swim

Miami Swim Week kicked off with the third annual Escape Miami party at the Shelbourne, hosted by Annie Vazquez of the Fashion Poet.  The 6 hour long fete included drinks, illustrations by The Architect of Style, henna tattoos, and lots of Miami representation from local vendors like Mia Shoes and Juicee.  A pool side fashion show featured local brands like Bianca Coletti and Please Don't Tell Shop, while a new Miami based swimwear brand, Mohini, put on their presentation in the lobby.

I wore a dress that I've worn to death lately, but I can't help it because it's so cute and it was so reasonably priced. It's from REnamed Apparel and I got it on Shopbop (check out their other dresses like this one and this)  The yellow cork wedges I'm sporting are probably the oldest thing in my closet. I have had them for years and they're still in great shape. And now they're vintage :)
