Hello Kitty Cafe Truck: Miami

The Hello Kitty Cafe truck made its way to Miami this past weekend and for a split second, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to go! I just registered Luna in daycare (sniff sniff), and they were holding an open house the same day and at the same time I was going to be visiting the truck. I had to adult at that moment and chose having Luna meet her teachers and classmates over kawaii time. But! Luna was in such good spirits after such a long and busy day, that we decided to take our chances and head over there in the early evening. It was such a great decision!

Sophie Theallet for The Limited

I was super happy to be able to join The Limited last night with their launch of Sophie Theallet’s new collection in stores. Ms. Theallet is bringing her elegance and luxuriousness to the brand by offering the dress you will want to be rocking this holiday season in 4 colors: black, orange, ivory (pictured below) and fuchsia. Although I arrived too late to the event to meet and pose with the designer herself, I didn’t hesitate to try on the lovely frock (while wearing the wrong underwear, of course). But the collection doesn’t stop there! It also includes fantastic accessories, such as this belt (that almost came home with me), as well as some more Winter basics like this cardigan.

{Giveaway}: $100 The Limited Gift Card

Ready to spruce up your wardrobe for upcoming Spring? Thanks to the lovely people at The Limited, you can with a $100 gift card! Entering is easy: follow Melificent on Facebook (link here) & comment to this post with what you have been eagerly awaiting to add to your wardrobe. For me, it’s definitely more bangles and general wrist candy. This picture inspired the lust! The winner will be announced next Thursday, 3/8!

After visiting The Limited last week, I was impressed with the versatility of their collections. Some of my favorites were, of course, their beautiful pop pieces (like the skirt I featured earlier this week), as well as their travel suits that can be thrown into the washer and dryer (heaven sent). Finally, I really adored their reboot of the Outback Red collection (last available in the 80’s), which focuses on those of us bitten by the wanderlust bug. It recently features trends inspired by travel to Havana, Cuba, which I love!

In other words, I don’t think any of you will have a very difficult time spending this great gift card. 😉


Enjoy pictures from my visit to The Limited grand opening under the cut!

The Limited Store Launch

Attention local fashionistas! The Limited in Dadeland Mall has a new home (now between Macy’s and JCPenny’s) and they want to celebrate with you this Friday, February 24th, at noon! Come join in the ribbon cutting, raffle, store tours and free swag with all purchases. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a great lunch break! Plus, I’ll be there! 😉

Curious about what has changed? A lot! But some of my favorite added features are buttons in the dressing room for more efficient service if, let’s say, you need another size or color, a sitting area and “Ebar” by the dressing room area for your friends and/or significant others to make their wait time a little more bearable (my hubs will definitely appreciate this one), and jewelry stands outside the rooms to make styling your outfit even easier! Plus, the store got a facelift – doesn’t it look gorgeous?

Hope to see you there – if not, visit The Limited on Facebook and stick around here on the blog. I’ll be giving away a mighty loaded gift card next week to one lucky reader to spend as they wish!
