Wynwood Walls

Graffiti is the most primitive expression of art.  


All you need is a couple of cans of spray paint, some walls…


and mad crazy good talent!


Anyone else smell something burning?  Vaporize much creepy alien dude?

 Wynwood Walls in Miami is an area of the city rich in Spanish, Haitian, and American culture.


The walls are a testament to the passion and creativity of the people.  


Seriously inspirational place to be – I had to start writing immediately!


The artists change up the walls all the time, making this area an ongoing interactive art display.


It is also an area of up and coming designers and there are some ridiculously fantabulous boutiques and showrooms littered throughout.
One of my absolute faves is Style Mafia.  Trust me, you just have to go.  NOW!


I was lucky enough to take the founder of Style Mafiaand a fabulous friend of mine (who introduced us) out for THE best cup of coffee after shopping at the showroom.


Even the coffee bar baristas are full blown artists in Wynwood !

So spray on the “Off” to combat the Zika and spend a day cruising through an art gallery located on the walls in the streets of Wynwood.

Fedora-ful!

Have you found yourself grooving to imaginary Cuban tunes?  MIght be your sense of style dropping not-so-subtle hints that it is craving a fabulous new fedora!


1882 brought to stage a play named “Fedora” about an aptly named princess, Princess Fedora who wore a hat.  Fast-track to 2012 and all the cool chicks (modern day princesses) are rocking’ the fedora.

You can get one at a scream of a deal at J. Crew for $9.99… SWEET!!!!   I bought mine at Joe Fresh for a particularly pleasing $12.00.

Surprisingly easy to wear (other than the obvious dreaded hat head) and versatile too!

Even seven year-olds are raiding their mama’s closet!  (grrrrrr)
