Early last Friday morning I was starting my journey to what would-be a mind-blowing experience. Of course, I couldn’t find any Voss water anywhere at the airport…BUT, I found a Lette Macarons from Beverly Hills stand at our gate, so I bought a whole box and then realized I never ate even one of them the entire trip. Actually, I left them in the refrigerator in our hotel and completely forgot about them. Anyways, that’s besides the point. Before we left, I was preparing myself for extreme humidity, high temperatures, and long hours of work. I personally needed a legitimate getaway, so I knew I would enjoy myself on the trip, but I never thought I would fall in love with Miami like I did! Below is a quick glimpse of some of my adventures with Melissa in South Beach, and some videos of my favorite fashion shows! The shows include sneak peaks on trends to come for later this year and for early 2015! Check out Sundance Beach’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week blog for my photos from the L*Space, Mikoh, Rip Curl, Mara Hoffman, Maaji, Luli Fama, Lolli, Acacia, Aguaclara, Aquarella, Mia Marcelle, Toxic Sadie, Minimale Animale, and Indah.

All in all, Miami was amazing. I want to go back as soon as possible for an actual relaxing vacation! If I were given the choice to make a list of 100 top places I would want to go, I never would have stuck Miami on that list prior to my trip. Now, it would be on that list. The water is beautifully aqua, the sand is white, the palm trees are vibrantly green with no traces of brown leaves, the streets are clean, the people are friendly, the buildings are historically modern (I know, that sounds like an oxymoron), the history has been preserved, the font theme throughout the city feels vintage, the Cuban food is amazing, the cars are glamorous, the latin culture is profound, and the accents are strong.
