The Bazaar Project- Not to Be Missed

It’s seldom I go to a store and want to buy just about everything. A notable exception is The Bazaar Project in its expanded new home in Coconut Grove. The owner, sourcer and person of exquisite taste is Yeliz Tetiz, who travels the world discovering contemporary treasures in home décor, men and women’s fashion, and jewelry. It’s best described as a Concept Store. Sharing the space with the retail offerings is an inviting café with tropical flair that opens onto the street. Though just open for two months, it’s already a hot ticket. Expect Yeliz’s stylish touches, even in the café. A coffee is not just a coffee. It’s served on a silver tray with a piece of Turkish delight candy. Order a glass of wine or cocktail and it comes with a dish of nibbles.

Eye Candy: a Top Miami Super Bowl Party 2020

Fashion, food, name entertainment, people watching, and more —  The Official Miami Super Bowl Host Committee VIP Party last week at Bal Harbour Shops with Honorary chairs Matthew Whitman Lazenby, Christine Lynn, Rodney Barreto, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, actor Tommy Lee Jones, and Argentine polo player Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras hosted the one-of-a-kind, private celebrity-styled affair.

3-in-1 Reader Event Feb.12!

A number of you have expressed interest in going to the warehouse/showroom of Anatomie, the company that makes travel clothes for men and women. So great news! We’ll be going there AND have two other curated vendors. Mark your calendar for February 12, 5:30 to 7:30.  My next reader event will be held at their showroom. PLUS, we’’ll be joined by Sonder and Holiday that makes stylish straw market bags that were all the rage in the French Riviera this summer along with custom Panama style hats for men and women and others. And if that wasn’t enough, we’ll have the designers of my much complimented Frida Kahlo earrings and others that happen to be under $60 so you can buy more than one.  Enjoy wine, prosecco and light bites too! Here’s more on the event and images of the products on display. And if you like what you’ve read, I need to have your RSVP by February 7. Feel free to invite a guest but I need to know the name.

Fashion Lunch Bag

A stylish lunch bag? Yes.  Thanks to Miami resident Patricia Caballero of Persoi,  you can store the lunch you made at home in a fashionable, totally practical handbag that is specially designed for lunches. The idea is to be able to carry lunch to work or play and use the bag for meetings or after work events, all the while being fashionable.  So civilized. And one model, The Grace,  looks like a Hermes Birkin. Got your interest?

Best Travel Clothes

When I heard this travel clothing could go from runway to restaurant, was wrinkle resistant, stylish, comfortable, stretchy and there are even dresses, and that a pair of pants is the weight of a banana, I had to go see it live. And that was easy, since the Miami based Anatomie has a big showroom where the magic happens in up and coming Little River. Plus, there are pieces for women and men.

James 113

Diego Dominguez did couture fashion for the likes of the First Ladies of Venezuela, the “Misses” Beauty Queens and the like. He was very successful, that is, until he had to leave the country after a death threat. After a number of years in and out of fashion after that, three years ago he started designing, confecting, and selling his creations in a shop bearing his name in  Ironside. And his fashion aesthetic evolved.
