Elle Magazine & Guess by Marciano Cocktails & Style Sweepstakes - Art Basel, Miami, Fl



Art Basel is a week long Miami art show that draws in a lot of snowbirds and art lovers to the city.  The week is filled with non-stop parties.  Some of the events are put on by high end jewelry lines like Cartier, and other festivities include photography and jewelry exhibitions from lesser known artists.  Regardless of the event, it's always fun to attend something during Art Basel, and it makes for great people watching.

The Patron Social Club sent me and a guest to the Guess by Marciano & Elle Magazine Cocktails & Style Sweepstakes party. 

The event was hosted in South Beach at the Guess Store on Lincoln Road.  For the first time in a long time, we had somewhat cooler and breezy weather so I paired a navy sweater dress with leopard patterned tights. 

The event was a collaboration between Elle Magazine, Patron & Guess.  They served cocktails with ginger beer (not my thing, I discovered) & appetizers like mini lobster rolls and roast beef with crystallized something on top, which was delicious.  Great music, too; great DJ.  Overall a very fun experience.. 



Patterned tights/pantyhose are a great way to add an extra something to an otherwise
plain outfit. These are really strong, by Urban Outfitters. Two for $20!
These taupe colored Vince Camuto heels that you see here..yes, gorgeous as they are, destroyed,
mangled, and killed my feet.
Never. Again.
Who wants them?   Has anyone else had terrible luck with shoes by this line? 
Cool looking decorative pieces that lined the ceiling of the Guess store.



How chic are these black leather gloves? The quilted ones on the far right are my favorite!


The Guess store looked great. Packed house, too. 

This necklace immediately caught my eye. Gorgeous shape & very sparkly.
Gray, patterned tights paired with a light gray Herve inspired dress looked very cute.

Stylish everyone.
Loved the wild print on these pants. 

Gift bags.
I wanted to steal this fun acrylic and  crystal bow from her!




Liked these a lot, especially the blue. 
We ended the night at a restaurant called Sugarcane for dinner.  It was SO delicious!

Spicy tuna roll.

What I wore: 
Dress: Sweater Dress from Old Navy still available. 
Belt: Aqua.

I wish that we had some kind of art show like this around here. It looks like a lot of fun, and it is a great way to get a cultural taste.
