Black Friday Sales, Deals and Online Discount Codes

Ok, so you've ignored the Black Friday business because you think it's disgusting, over-commericalized and it makes one lose their sense of family.

But I still like shopping.

For those of you that want to snag some online deals, below is a list of my favorite items, and online retailers like Nordstrom, Shopbop, Revolve Clothing and other stores that have pretty good deals going on.  I'll also update the list with Cyber Monday deals as well.

If you know your sizing in different brands, this is the time of year to shop for yourself online - you can beat the crowds and you can still get a great pair of boots on sale.  I'm into over the knee, two-toned boots this year, so I've picked out a few styles that I think are cool.  Of course, shiny things attract me, so there may be a cool metallic clutch thrown in the mix as well.  Happy hunting.

Outfit: Helmut Lang Draped Top + Elit by Stolichnaya

We attended a food and vodka tasting a the Epic Hotel courtesy of Elit by Stolichnaya and Zuma Restaurant.
The tasting was centered around the final edition vodka in the Elit Pristine Water Series: a series of vodka's that are put through quadruple filtration, and incorporate sourcing water from natural areas.  This particular vodka includes water sourced from a spring that flows off the top of the Andean mountains.  I'm not kidding.  The newest vodka, the Andean edition, is considered the third and final limited edition, ultra- luxury vodka in the series.

Helmut Lang Fold Over Drape Top
Each bottle in the pristine water series is $3000 and only 250 of each edition are manufactured.  So, if you're a high roller and you love your know what to buy!

I wore a white Helmut Lang draped top. I would normally take an XS/P in Helmut Lang tops.  For sizing reference, this is an S because I could not live without this top, and Shopbop was sold out in XS.
I'm wearing my favorite pair of embellished stilettos by Rachel Roy (The Aria Pump) (Similar)  If you have never tried Rachel Roy shoes, I highly recommend them.  They're super high quality and they have padding all along the footbed, which, if you know me at all, you know that my number one outfit related complaint is uncomfortable shoes. I'm on my feet all day in pumps, and all I ever want in life is a pair of comfortable, padded work shoes. (Sale Alert: Helmut Lang is having 40% site wide sale)
The Epic is such a beautiful spot!  While the valet situation is terrible and leaves much to be desired, the hotel itself offers a modern feel and a great dining experience.  There are two restaurants on-site: Area 31 (the views from this rooftop restaurant are amazing) and Zuma, which boasts one of the city's best brunches. The food tasting at Zuma was top notch.  Below are details on what we dined on and my outfit.

Amaluna Cirque Du Soleil + Free Ticket Giveaway

I've been a fan of Cirque Du Soleil productions since my first experience watching "O" at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, over ten years ago.  I'll never forget that show; we had third row seats and got to experience the splashing of the water, felt the heat from the flames and saw other special effects that are part of the now famous show.  They are seriously mesmerizing productions that are musically and visually stunning.   Since then, I've tried to catch almost every single show.

I'm so happy to announce that the newest Cirque show, Amaluna, is debuting in Miami and I'm giving away two pairs of free tickets valued at $80 each (second level seating).  The show will debut on December 11th, and run through January.  The first pair of tickets will be given away to a winner that enters via my Instragram.  This contest will run through December 3rd.  After that, I will giveaway one more pair. The tickets are for showings in December and January.  If you are less lucky, and want to buy your tickets, you can do so below. 
Good luck!

Tickets for the show can be purchased here - this link will provide you with $25 discount off the regular purchase price!
Tickets range from $37 - $130.

Style File: Fall Fashion Favorites

I love Fall fashion - I love browsing through blogs, catalogues and lookbooks to see all of the great Fall pieces in action.  We have so few chilly days in Miami, that any drop in temperature brings a slew of scarves, and knee high boots to the city.  We may look a little ridiculous, but it's still fun to play dress up with some of the items that remain stored away, pretty much year round.

I think coated denim is a cool Fall trend, and while these jeans may be a bit on the delicate side (don't wash them at home, unless you're going to handwash them, inside out and with Woolite), they're an awesome alternative to regular dark denim.  They come in great jewel tones for the season.  Some of my favorites are below, click on the individual styles for a link back on where to buy.
By the way - Saks Off 5th is having a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE EVENT FOR DENIM.  If you know your size in Jeans - I would start stocking up.  Click here.

Outfit: Wynwood Walls & Perrier

“Disclosure: Compensation was provided by Perrier via Mode Media.  The opinions expressed herein are those of the author and are not indicative of the opinions or positions of Perrier.”

For this set of pictures, I headed over to the Wynwood Walls in Miami to take a peek at what has been going on there lately.  Every few weeks or so, the building exteriors and wall murals change with a rotating assortment of talent being showcased.  Street art in our city has been elevated to a different level since the inception of the Design District and Wynwood.  
In recent years, there has been an incredible surge of life and creative energy in Miami.  Whereas before we used to see buildings "tagged" up with ugly, monochromatic, gang-related symbols and words - we now have meaningful and vibrant street art.

In a few weeks, Art Basel will be upon us, and all of the current street art will change once again.  I'm glad I snapped a few shots in front of this wall of flowers before it's replaced.

Perrier teamed up with three famed street artists from around the world: Kobra from Sao Paolo, JonOne from Paris/New York and Sasu working from Tokyo.  The goal? To create street art labels for limited edition Perrier bottles and cans.  They each designed something that was true to their own aesthetic, and their creations were paired with the Perrier product. 

I'm wearing: 
Forever 21 Tank Top (similar) // Express floppy hat (very similar) // J.Crew Necklace (similar)  (similar) (similar) //Eberjay Bralette // LNA Zippered Leggings // Jeffrey Campbell 'Soiree' Sandals // David Yurman Bangles // H&M Bag and Chambray Shirt

Outfit: How to Wear a Plaid Dress in Miami

Wynwood Artist Luis Valle
How amazing is this wall mural in Wynwood, Miami? A few weeks ago, Nicky Hilton (yep) was in Miami and she posed in front of this gorgeous piece and posted it to her insta. I was so drawn to it that I scouted it out this weekend.  I found it on 25th street, in Wynwood, off of N.W. 2nd avenue.

Outfit: I Would Do Anything For Love + Freshii, Wynwood

I took a few days off from work because I needed a little regrouping time.  And, who wants to forfeit their annual paid leave at the end of the year because they're not allowed to carry a certain number of hours over into the new year? Not this girl!!

This morning I attended a breakfast at Freshii, Wynwood Miami's newest fresh snack and juice bar.  It was hosted by my friend Maria of The Wordy Girl.  I enjoyed some girl time with some of my favorite bloggers while we snacked on goat cheese, veggie and egg wraps, really delicious fruit and granola parfaits and, (my favorite), bacon, egg and cheese wraps.  We tried some fresh juices, too, and while beets aren't my thing, I discovered that apple, cucumbers, kale and spinach are.

After breakfast, I snapped some shots in front of one of the street art murals in Wynwood, Miami.  If anyone knows the artist, please let me know, and I'll credit.
