What I Wore | Social Fashionista

Romper: BebeClutch: "Vintage" Banana RepublicNecklace: Forever21 (bargain buy!)

Mashable.com hosted a meet-up at The Pelican Hotel in Miami Beach this week to celebrate Social Media Day and your fearless fashion leader stopped in to make an appearance (albeit, fashionably late!)  I dressed up my basic romper with a fabulous new necklace I found at Forever21, and an old clutch that has been hiding in my closet for too long. Pairing a new accessory, like a statement necklace, with older pieces in your closet is a great inexpensive way to revive your wardrobe.

That night I had the pleasure of meeting my new pal, Salome aka Miss @NewTimesStreet, who looked quite chic in her LBD. Networking never felt so good when I ran into J. of FASHIFY, and got asked to be a contributing writer! Now that is a great way to celebrate Fashionista Friday!


Closet Confessions | Fabian Basabe

Currently a restauranteur, formerly a model— but always oh so stylish. Meet Fabian Basabe, owner of Da Vittorio Restaurant in Coral Gables.

Perhaps it's the New Yorker in him, but this Socialite has a signature style that never misses. Basabe's look is classic, clean, and easy, with the ability to make even a pair of jeans and a tee feel sophisticated. Whether he's off to a cocktail party or throwing it down in the kitchen of his classic Italian restaurant, Basabe is always impeccably dressed and groomed.

With wife Martina in the luxe lingerie biz (her family owns the Italian brand La Perla), and friends the likes of Kelly Killoren-Bensimon and Kourtney Kardashian, it's hard to blend in when you're Fabian Basabe. But don't let his All-American style and boyish charm fool you; he enjoys being the life of the party (see question #10.)
