Last week my girl Nicholl and I took girls' night out to the next level thanks to the glam squad at BlowNDry Lounge. We pretty much experienced our own Kardashian moment, having two hairstylists and a makeup artist at my home to get us red carpet ready.
I hope you'll join me and four of my favorite Miami blogger girlfriends, Kristin, Ginger, Daniela, and Erika, this Thursday at the TOUS boutique at Aventura Mall! We'll be in store starting at 12:30pm to celebrate the launch of "Tous in the Tropics," and invite you for a fun afternoon of shopping, refreshments, and special gifts. Known for their adorably chic signature "teddy bear" jewelry, the family-owned luxury brand also offers a chic selection of handbags, fragrances and sunglasses.

There's something about a motorcycle jacket that will always be so effortlessly cool. At this week's Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour spring fashion show, Fashion Director Ken Downing confirmed this notion, declaring it's the jacket every woman should have in their closet. (Take note: pastel pink is the IT color for spring 2014.) I've been living in this vegan leather version from BlankNYC, and love the slim, almost blazer-like, cut that looks great with anything from skinny jeans to a full skirt. I styled this look for one of my fashion segments on Univision's Despierta America (watch here,) and while I know most people are "so over" the bandage dress, the unconventional plaid pattern of this style from ShopAkira.com is what caught my eye. Paired with black tights and booties, it's the chic way to style a skintight dress without leaving too little to the imagination. Always keep it classy, ladies.

We're already halfway through the first month of 2014 and I can't think of a better way to describe it than with this Baublebar necklace - Happy! (Thanks, Coki!) It was so refreshing to recharge my batteries over the holidays while everyone was on vacation. We celebrated our first anniversary living in our new home in Coral Gables, (which has been the perfect backdrop for outfit photo ops like this!) enjoyed time with family, and set both personal and professional goals for the year to come. Now it's back to work, and back to basics - so to speak.
When I'm shopping after Christmas sales, I always look for classic pieces that will add value to my wardrobe, rather than trendy one-offs that I'll only wear once and forget about. Case in point this Qmack plaid skirt I scored from Macy's (only $14!) A "grown up" school girl look is perfect for the cooler weather we've been having in Miami lately, and I love that it's professional enough to meet my real estate clients, yet comfortable for doing errands. I'm just smitten with these Irving heels I received from the Via Spiga Resort 2014 collection. I'm thinking they'll be perfect for a Valentine's day outfit.
What makes me almost as happy as a great start to a new year? A fabulous blow out, natch. What if I told you this 'do cost me only $25? It's true, and thanks to a welcome new addition to the Gables! Check out "Blow Dry & More" located at 142 Giralda Ave. and ask for Marcos for a full-bodied or sleek style that won't break the bank.
