Over the next 6 weeks I have 5 social events sans-children, on my calendar and they are all happening in the next 7 days! Dinner at 3 fabulous Miami restaurants, the Fashion Bloggers do it Better Miami fashion show on Thursday night, and the Cold Play concert Friday night.
With all this fun coming my way I thought a new outfit was in order.
Lately, I have felt a bit like a cyber-stalker. I have been following the music and fashion blog, My Style Bass and have really enjoyed peaking into the life of its author, Brooke Atwood. Brooke is a beautiful girl from Jackson, Mississippi who recently followed her passion and went back to school at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) to get her Master of Arts in fashion design. In her blog she documents her new career, her favorite fashion and the live music shows that she enjoys.
I love Brooke’s style so when I was ready to shop I turned to My Style Bass to see her latest finds.
Last week she reported on a new line she loved Clover Canyon. I followed her “links” to the Fall 2012 collection and loved it. I was so glad to see that a South Miami boutique that I have been wanting to explore carried the line- Kristine Michael.
I had so much fun at this Miami boutique trying on at least 6 pieces of Clover Canyon’s new line (except Brooke’s awesome statement pants, which they did not carry) and settled on this skirt.
It is stretchy, with no zippers, super comfortable and just thick enough to show no bulges that linger underneath. For my night out to dinner with friends, at the absolutely yummy Michael’s Genuine Saturday night, I paired the skirt with a new Ramy Brook blue silk top, my black Kenna-T cropped tuxedo jacket (probably my favorite item in my closet) and my leopard cuff by Worth Collection.
The skirt was so comfortable I plan to wear it to all 5 of my social engagements this week and can’t wait to play in my closet and come up with different looks for each event.
FYI: Shopping in Miami? I highly recommend Kristine Michael boutique in South Miami at 57th and Sunset. The large selection of clothes and interesting pieces of jewelry and shoes was so fun to look through and the ladies that worked there were so lovely and welcoming. This isn’t always the case in Miami… customer service is just not the same as it was in Texas. I was very greatful to the lovely ladies that helped me and made me feel right at home, even though I came into shop with no make-up and dressed in old jeans and my hot pink running shoes!
