OOTD: T'Audrey Jewelry, Vizcaya Miami and a Black Maxi dress

This time of year, specifically the months of October, November, and December, is my favorite time of year.  The weather dipped down into the 50's this morning, and for us, that's a big deal! Yesterday, it was a perfect, no-humidity filled day.  We took advantage of the weather and went to Vizcaya to visit the grounds and tour the estate.  It is such a cool historical site, right in our neck of the woods.  I felt very Gatsby walking around the gardens and home.

The pictures of this outfit look terrible! I'm sorry about that.  I am not sure if it was because I was rushed or what, but I do want you guys to take note of the adorable social media necklace by TAudrey Jewelry, customized specifically for me (NETTY ESQ:)  It's the Hashtag Plate necklace, and can be fully customized to fit all your social media needs.  They also have a Social Media necklace that you can order with your Twitter handle (@FashionableESQ) and a variety of other cool stuff.  The jewelry is handmade and handstamped by a local Miami girl, and is all 14k gold-filled.  The nameplate fits 10-12 characters.

My readers get a 15 % discount using promo code FASHIONABLEESQ at checkout, if you are interested!

Chanel Brunch + Chanel Sublimage, Neiman Marcus, Merrick Park, Coral Gables

I was invited to attend a brunch at Neiman Marcus - at the Chanel makeup counter at Merrick Park in Coral Gables.  I got my makeup done by the very talented Jessica Concepcion before the Gap event.  I met the sweetest members of the Chanel staff, Alicia, Ada & Jessica, and made a new friend named Sarah (shoutout!) Thank you to Brigid for my invite!

I had just enough time to take in a really delicious chicken salad courtesy of Mariposa and delighted in the indulgent Chanel Sublimage products presentation.

Chanel eye shadows; my favorites include Amethyst and Black Star.
I also have recently acquired a love for the Illusion D'Ombre Longwear Luminous Eyeshadows - these are creme shadows that instantly dry from a creme to powder, and they have the most delicious velvety texture. They're super pigmented and can also be used as liners (although I recommend a setting spray if you're going this route). Absolutely love this product.  My favorite shades include Apparition (deep navy blue),  Initiation (glittery bronze), Convoitise (another bronzy shade) and Emerveille, a great, soft goldish pinkish every day shade.

Hosting Gig: Gap Friends & Family Fall Collection + Dadeland Mall + Gap Promo Codes

I want to thank everyone who came out to support me and the blog at The Gap a few weekends ago.  I was honored to have The Gap ask me to host one of their in-store shopping events at Dadeland Mall.  I love the new, edgier and more fashion forward Fall collection.  There are a ton of textured pieces, with streamlined silhouettes. You should also check out their outerwear and cropped jackets: I can't wait for temperatures to dip into the low 70's in Miami so that I can sport some of their new Fall styles, ha, ha!

As part of the fun, I styled three mannequins using pieces from the store.  You can see the looks below.

And a big thank you to Gatsby, for making an adorable appearance and making everyone fall in love with him.

OOTD: Key West Chic + Southernmost Point

What to wear in Key West

Made my way down to Key West a couple of weekends ago for a bachelorette party.
Had a moment where I just wanted to lay still in the sun, just for a minute, because the weather was so perfect.

OOTD: Skater Skirt + Gap Bird Scarf + Stripes

Hello everyone! I had a great weekend!  I hosted the Gap event on Saturday and relaxed the rest of the weekend. I wanted to thank everyone that came out to support me and the blog at the Gap. It was a big success and it meant a lot to me to see lots of familiar faces there.  You guys are awesome - you know who you are :)

I also wanted to let you guys know about a new local jewelry designer named Stephanie.  She designs beautiful pieces for Stephanie Elise Designs, an online jewelry shop that features druzzy earrings, unique necklaces, and all sorts of other gorgeous pieces.  She was kind enough to send me some items that I have not taken off, since I received them.

The initial custom LOVE necklace is the biggest hit, garnering compliments wherever I go. Thanks, Stephanie!

This simple outfit of the day was inspired by a tweet I received from a follower who paired he Gap bird scarf with a striped top.
What do you guys think of this look?

OOTD: Faux Leather Mini + Plaid Styling

So it looks like one of the most affordable items in my closet this year, is also the most versatile and most worn.  This plaid shirt from Forever 21 is definitely one of my better Fall purchases.  I have also discovered a love of H&M online, although I will say that I find their sizing is really if you don't know your H&M size, don't buy online.  H&M stores in Miami do not accept online returns (yet), which is stupid, yes, but you will feel more stupid when you have a bag of clothes that don't fit and you can't return them in-store OR ship them back!


I love leather detailing for Fall.  Earlier this year I splurged on the Bailey 44 Dante dress - with faux leather paneling in the color 'port'  but I was determined to still get my leather fix in the form of a mini skirt.  I hunted for a quilted leather mini, but when that didn't turn up, I got this one from H&M instead.  I think it was $15. Ridiculous and surprisingly sturdy and good quality. It fits so cute.

The skirt fits a little high waisted so I tied the ends of the plaid shirt into a knot and away I went.  I can't seem to find it online anymore, but I do like this French Connection one as well - it fits very similar to mine (high waisted and fitted)
