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. 
I wore a tutu from LOFT and added edge with a spike necklace and cargo vest.  The shoes were not my first choice, I opted for a strappy stiletto sandal, but because I had destroyed my feet with all of this Basel walking, I changed into these comfy BCBG wedges, and then into PayLess flip flops.  After the De Nolet party, we wandered into several of the pop up art tents and viewed what they had to offer. 

Would you wear a tutu out in public?

What I Wore:
LOFT Tutu (Tulle Skirt) (in black(for size reference: I tried on the 0 regular in-store, did not buy it, waited for a sale, then it sold out online.  That was my size.  I then bought a 2P which I found fits the same as 0; this item runs one size larger than your regular size).
Susana Monaco Tube Top: never go anywhere without these. I've been wearing them for years, literally since highschool.  They're the most versatile piece of clothing that I own, and they're pretty much indestructible.
Old Navy Cargo Vest, similar here and here. 
Spike Necklace c/o LiaBella Jewelry
Vintage gold belt
Neon bracelet c/o Accessory Fanatic  (25% off your purchase with code 'LaunchParty')
BCBG Wedges
Fendi Forever Boston Bag (soldout) (another Boston Bag favorite)
