Art Basel 2013 was one of my favorites this year. From watching a BCBGMaxAzria runway show to shooting at the Elle Decor Concept House to the UggAustralia party with local artist Stephen Gamson, I got a good dose of Basel fashion. Plus, I also managed to squeeze in seeing lots of art while balancing in a few good parties..
Here’s my top moments of Basel & why. (click to read more)

Art Basel is upon us and that means time to whip up the outfits and start the RSVPs. When in doubt of what to wear, an LBD with some fun accessories will get from event to event looking like the perfect street style maven. I fell in love with this velvet Love the Limelight frock and paired it up with some pretty amazing artsy pieces such as a pink lips purse, a flower ring made out of real cork and the coolest necklace from last night’s Pop Up Piano Miami at Miami Ironside which you can also tune pianos with. BTW, the necklace hand-made by Miami jeweler T’Audrey also benefits the charity Guitars Over Guns. Talk about an awesome piece.
Today’s The Petite Poet is one of our favorites! Why? Well, because it merges comic book pop art and fashion just in time for Miami’s highly anticipated Art Basel which kicks off December 2. This will be our Petite Poet’s first time visiting the art shows but she’s no stranger to an easel and paint and with this artsy top, we are sure she will be fitting right in. Art Basel is the ideal time to show off your creative side with clothing as over the years its become quite the street style fashion event summoning celebrities and who’s who of the art world. Yet, if you’re taking your little ones, Mia says comfortable shoes are a must! Try comfy flat boots or edgy sneakers. Till next Thursday! -The Petite Poet
I love finding beautiful structures in Miami like this gate which I made a U-Turn for a few days ago. In person, it is so architectually provactive, I had to get off my car and go touch it. I traced my fingers across the cold iron flowers and leaves and glared up half squinting through the morning sun at the giant peacock perched above it like a regal officer and was utterly mesmerized too by the ghost-like community it stands infront of.
Woo Hoo! The weekend has arrived and today’s Weekend Wear is all about rocking your hair in the latest Miami fad: blinged out locks. Midtown salon, Blo Blowdry Midtown, is popularizing the fad and after eyeing a few of their clientele, I had to get some sparkles for myself. I opted for the high bun style which always looks elegant and stylish not to mention works amazing in the 305 humidity. After creating a braid to stick the bling on with a flat iron, teasing my hair into an uber high top knot and plenty of bobby pins and hair spray my look was complete. I rocked this winning look to Blush Boutique’s South Beach style party and after to The Miami New Times’ 2013 Web Award wear I ended up winning Best Miami Fashion Blog! Now, talk about having the perfect hair to get an award.
Today our menswear section called Mr.Poet & The Pug pays homage to the denim on denim trend. Our model/musician Alejandro AKA “Ledo” likes this look because it has an indie rocker flair and reminds him of musician Pete Doherty’s style. Doherty in case you don’t know is the frontman in the bands ”Babyshambles and The Libertines” and he dated supermodel Kate Moss. Another thing, Mr. Poet likes about this hi/low look which combines an Old Navy chambray shirt and Perry Ellis jeans is that it’s simple enough to wear to a night out in Wynwood and versatile to rock on stage for a gig.
Following in the footsteps of yesterday’s floral trend called “An English Rose in Miami” our little Miss. Petite Poet had some flower power fun posing in the popular tartan trend that we’ve been spotting all over the 305. The “look du jour” has been adopted by teens and adults who like to mix in a bit more punk (think Nirvana grunge), but our model Mia proves that classic staples such as this Ralph Lauren frock is always better than fads. This holiday season this frock is all you need for your little one to look dressed up and comfortable. All you gotta do is change up the accessories such as adding tights, black boots, throwing on a leather jacket or a cute fedora and voilia the dress looks different and just as darling. See you next Wednesday for some sequin fun!
