What I Wore: Neon in the City

November 20th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

One of my favorite places in LA is the LACMA. I have to visit every time I’m in town and I’m never disappointed with their temporary exhibits. This time we were fortunate enough to enjoy one on Stanley Kubrick and all his legendary films. Can you believe I’ve only seen one (The Shining)??? I have to say, after completely enjoying the entire experience, I totally find myself wanting to immerse myself in his work. Movie marathon!!!

Something else I really enjoy? Sheer shirts with bling! I have no idea what draws me to own so many sheer blouses, but I hope the trend never goes away. It must be my tropical blood – wanting to be covered, but still airy enough to not suffocate in the Miami heat. Unfortunately for me, that was not the case while I was in LA – it was freezing! Shortly after I took these photos, I had to borrow the hubs’ cardigan to shield me from the elements. Before you judge, remember, I’m tropical, OK?

What I Wore: Rock ‘n Roll Lifestyle

May 24th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion, Personal by Meli

Welcome to Miami summers: humid, disgusting and bright. I’m pretty sure the morning these photos were taken, there was hail. Unless, of course, I was having some twisted nightmare. So, naturally, it was a great idea to rock the full on black rockstar look. I’m a Miami native, so I can handle it, but I’m pretty sure the hubs was ready to go on strike!

I channeled my inner Alison Mosshart (I want to be her when I grow up) and played the part of the tortured and cool rockstar. Did I pull it off?
