Miami Fashion Week was this past july. Miss me and i headed over to South Beach to kill it our presence. the tradeshow for the industry, Miami Swim, was having 3 days of exhibitions at the convention centre whilst Mercedes Benz hosted the catwalk shows at The Raleigh Hotel, one of my most loved places in the 305 district. It was a chance for us to get to know the industry, make some new contacts, show off all our hot summer outfits and GET A TAN! armed with a Micheal Kors bikini and Miss Me with her new Versace blinging necklace, take a look at the start of my picture diary….
these sunglasses were $25 from a shop on Bedford avenue in willyburg...my summer love
miss me & i in front of the reception tents
every night for 3 nights there were fashion shows with flowing cocktails
two days in the sun gets my pocahantus skin brown already so I wore a bikini top under a crisp white Reiss shirt with a crazy ass shell necklace I got from the Philippines. oh and avec a rattan clutch I got from Portobello market
had lunch with Induce, a sweet local MIA DJ, at the standard, one of my favourite getaways…the nicoise salad is delish
its all very martin parr...you gotta revel in the tack and glam melange of miami
miss me & I hit the beach every morning since our lil condo was right on ocean drive (bit touristy but at $60 a night stop complaining)
not quite Mario testino but brown bodies with their backs to the sun are sexy
the new girls on our block, emily & Jackie, from HOUSE OF JACKIE BROWN, a dope bikini label – met emily at the miss behave magazine party days before flying to MIA and we hit it off….needless to say us four caused much tequila trouble for the next few days.
my secret boo took me to dinner at tap tap, this haitian restaurant off collins. it had this painting on the wall of this voodoo goddess of love
