Current Wants: Rich & Skinny Houndstooth Shorts + Conversation Pieces + Susana Monaco Tube Top

So many colorful and vibrant summer pieces that I'm currently wanting!
Check them out. 

1. Rich & Skinny Metallic Houndstooth Denim shorts $134 - these caught my eye ever since I saw them at the Neiman Marcus Miami blogger event a while back. They're really expensive for shorts, but so, so cute.

2. Modcloth My Lucky Stars Heels $34 - These Miu Miu inspired star heels are really bold...but can you resist the tiny metallic stars? 

3. Conversation Pieces Martini Cocktail Party Shirt $38, as seen on my galpal Melificent. Need I say more? 

7. Susana Monaco Tube Top $75, in lemon lime.  I have so many of these. Yes, I still wear tube tops. The SM one's last forEVER, and they give you a great silouhette

How to: Build Around A Basic

I'm trying a new site feature, the "How To" section.  I last tried this out with mint green pants, in this post, which turned out to be really popular :)  My hope is that seeing an outfit laid out like this will make it easier for your to go to your closet and make a cute outfit with pieces you already own.

How To:

  • The Basic: I chose a Gap dress.  There is a similar dress here, with all sizes available. Because the basic that I chose is striped, anything else that is going to be layered over it is going to be a solid color.  There's a definite art to mixing patterns - like mixing stripes and polka dots, etc., but for now, we'll keep it simple.

The Accessories:

Splurge vs Steal: DVF Adele Clutch & Asos

These are actually so similar that it's borderline...copying?  Down to the hardware at the edge of the flap! What do you think about that?

Miami Fashion Bloggers: Neiman Marcus Event at the Village of Merrick Park

Last week, my bestie, Meli, from Melificent, and I attended a blogger event at The Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables, at the Neiman Marcus.
I've had my blog for a little over a year now, and I've never wanted to really delve into the Miami blogger world. I think I was shy for a long time, and I didn't want anyone to know I was running The Fashionable ESQ.  This is a really small city - and by that I mean, everyone knows each other. I wanted to lay low for a bit and develop the blog to see where it went.

I'm over that now.

I want new Miami blogger buddies!

Below are my pictures from the event. It was really fun, and there was a huge turnout! I had no idea we had so many bloggers in Miami?  There were little stations with wine, food & the best popsicles from Paulina's Pops (the coconut still makes my mouth water!) The clothes in the fashion show made me want to wipe out my bank account. 

Below are the pictures of the event.
