OOTD: How to Wear Leopard Pants

merry christmas!

I had brunch at ChillBar this weekend with a group of my fun blogger pals (Charnele, Rachelle, Gissi J). When we were done eating, we walked around an awesome open-air fresh market they've got next door.  I wore my fave leopard pants from Shopbop by Sea-NYC (similar)  After I bought these, I noticed a lot of other brands began making them, at more affordable price points.  I have included some options after the cut.

This particular pair is versatile and they're comfortable.  They have an elastic waist band (perfect for brunching and gorging on pancakes (I found a similar high end pair here, middle price point here,  an under $25 pair here). They tie at the ankles for a little added design flair.

OOTD: Casual + Cute Outfit with Boyfriend Jeans + Vintage Chanel Trunk Show

Last weekend, I stopped by  Koko & Palenki at the Village of Merrick Park, for a few moments of vintage luxury.  They were hosting a vintage Chanel trunk show put on by Vintage Wonderland.
There were gold bangles and cuffs, an amazing and rare blue beauty, lucite rings, mother of pearl cuff links, and bold earrings.  I wore a casual, easy outfit which was based around my new obsession: my relaxed fit, boyfriend jeans by Juicy.

Vintage Wonderland is the product of the meeting of the minds of two fashionable ladies, Jade Furtado and Kody Pangburn.  They sell vintage treasures and seamlessly incorporate their vintage finds into this current season's styles.  They guarantee the authenticity of every item they sell, and they have the knowledgebase to be able to do so. They're a wholesale business that caters to boutiques but they also do private personal shopping, so you can essentially have hand picked vintage finds that really mesh with your own, personal style aesthetic.
 I want in! 
I met Jade at the trunk show and she has serious cool-girl style; you can tell that she's got a killer eye, so you'll get the best choices on your vintage hunt.

OOTD: Art Basel Miami 2013, Gale Hotel: Paper Mag + Asos Party

Last Friday night brought a quick stop to the Gale Hotel on South Beach for an Art Basel rooftop event hosted by Paper Mag and Asos.  Dinner at 5 Napkins before that, (delicious food, try the Wasabi Deviled Eggs and the Mahi Tacos).  I ate too much.  

I really liked the atmosphere and decore at this boutique hotel.  It had an Old World feel but at the same time kept things a bit modern and streamlined.  All of the doors and harware are new, clean and pretty, but there is a mixture of antique photographs and paintings throughout that give everything a really cool feel.

Wardrobe Malfunction: The hem on my skirt went kaput very early on in the evening :(

Art Basel 2013: Miami, Ketel One De Nolet + Art Miami + Spectrum Miami + The Photographic Journal

Wearing a tutu and spike necklace, I went into the last night of Art Basel last week, bravely and stoically, only to end up in a pair of PayLess flip flops by the end of the night.
My feet suffered that night.
They died.

I attended the De Nolet event, a cool party in Wynwood hosted by Ketel One.  My blogger sisters were there, and we enjoyed fun complimentary cocktails and passed bites from Gigi's (one of our fave late night stops for good food and atmosphere).  

We were there for a short while before I ran into my good friend, photographer Augustin Sanchez.  Augi is really talented and he has recently launched his passion project, The Photographic Journal, in conjunction with Instagram Hall-Of-Famer Dan Rubin.  This online site is his study in portraiture, among other things; it also allows users to upload their own submissions for a chance to have them published on the site, or, in the future, in print.
If you have a minute, check out the pictures they already have up on the site, and I think you'll agree with me - TPJ is teeming with inspiration and talent. 

Augi quickly snapped these pictures of a self-conscious me, as I fidgeted with my hair and outfit.

OOTD: Art Basel 2013, Miami: Cassina x Louis Vuitton + Bailey 44 Dante Dress

Armed with my love (he is camera shy, but I still got some pics of him) and my blogger partner in crime, Gissi of The Architect of Style, I braved the Art Basel Miami traffic, and decided to get social last week. Check out some pictures from the Fox House and High Heels Suicide Pop Up as well as the Cassina x Louis Vuitton party.

Fox House is an online retailer of pieces that are curated for the surf loving-bohemian, frayed denim, free spirit in all of us.  Owner Tobi Salver took her online business and made it a boutique reality with the Fox House Pop Up debuting during Art Basel 2013.
