Fashion Lunch Bag

The Grace

 

A fashion 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.

Not Your Usual Art Basel Picks

Rather than the obvious major art fairs, here are my picks for other events and happenings at Art Basel Miami 2019. Check them out: “hot’ new Wynwood store described as a “retail destination and culture creator”, art week workshop and private tours, two of my favorite ‘other’ art fairs,  stylish shopping and art nail popups at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and new private art museums opening this week. Note the first event is this Sunday!

French Caribbean Lifestyle PopUp

A unique French Caribbean lifestyle pop-up boutique has come to Wynwood, and it’s well worth a visit.But note it’s only here until this Sunday. Find some of the leading and most creative fashion, beauty and cosmetic brands of Martinique and Guadalupe. I ended up buying an eye catching long white dress with a fitted bodice and flaired skirt and matching bandeau bathing suit that could be from Balenciaga or Prada at a fifth of the price. Then there’s handsome resort footwear, a natural cosmetics line, and perfume and scents label. Loved the sunglasses and straw beach bags, too. Have a look:

New Fashion (and Dog) Finds

Every month or two I go to Brickell City Center to see what new shops or services have opened, something that never disappoints. They’re often “firsts” for Miami and even for the US, well curated selections. A recent visit uncovered a Brazilian designer that’s perfect for Miami’s special fashion esthetic, stylish and well priced shoe store from Madrid with the season’s top looks, and a shop that specializes in custom dog leashes that tick off all the right things.

Fabulous Friday: Better Than Cashmere

Softer, lighter and fluffier than the finest cashmere I’ve ever felt is – would you believe – wool made from the fine undercoat fibers of wild goats from Kyrgystan, in the foothills of the Himalayas . It’s called Yangir. And then there’s the wool made from baby camel hair in Mongolia which it’s said “drives you to sin”   They’re the latest innovation and product of eight generation French company Brun de Vian-Tiran, founded in 1808, and  based in one of my new favorite towns — L’Isle Sur La Sorgue in Luberon, Provence. There’s a museum you can visit and the products are sold online.
