Fashion Happy Hour: Bloggers Give Edition

This September, Fashion Happy Hour had their very first “Bloggers Give Edition” at the LMNT. This was a very special event being that it was hosted by Daniela Ramirez from “Nanys Klozet”. In this event, Fashion Bloggers sold pieces from their wardrobe in order to donate to Style Saves, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supplying less fortunate kids with clothing. I really enjoyed being a part of such an amazing event while supporting a great cause. The good energy and creativity just filled the room!

Birthday Post

Today is my birthday! I plan to celebrate among family and friends and end the night with some karaoke. I am so grateful for another wonderful year full of adventures that have lead me to where I am today. Looking forward to making some great memories!

Maxi dresses are one of my favorite pieces to wear because they are an instant fashion statement, with barely any effort. I am wearing BCBGeneration and my accessories are from Club Monaco.  Cheers!

Today’s Look: Basic Crop top with a Pop of Color

Hope everyone had an amazing Labor Day Weekend!

I am all about getting the most out of basic and versatile apparel. This is the very reason why I have my share of white and black pieces. Here’s my look of the day featuring a white crop top from Nordstrom, a capri pant from the butik and one of my favorite necklaces. This necklace is a true gem and it was hand-made from my designer friend, Doreentii Fersola. A drop necklace goes well with so many different looks, especially a round neck to really accent the piece.

As a Fashion Merchandising and Marketing alum, I am always looking for ways to meet and get involved with creative people in Miami’s Fashion Industry. This is why I am so happy to be a part of such an amazing monthly Fashion Networking event, Fashion Happy Hour. The event creates the perfect opportunity to mingle, shop, and enjoy a fashion show production with Miami’s Fashion Network. Every month, the Fashion Happy Hour Team and I put on a trendy event to help promote fashion-related businesses in Miami.

This Months Fashion Happy Hour was hosted at the LMNT. The host was the super stylish blogger Freshly Squeezed Fashionista. The fashion show included looks from Luxe Isle, Hang 2 Dry and Pure of Hearts modeled by the always professional and chic, DAMA models.

Today’s Look: Effortless Chic

I was able to take some time to relax as I am preparing for Fashion Happy Hour this Friday! Full recap will be up on the blog next week.

My look of the day is perfect for a little stroll in Miami. Nothing is easier than throwing on a dress and adding a little sparkle to it with a waist belt. I found both of these pieces at Francesca’s Boutique, the shoes are from Aldo.
