This look is such an easy airy outfit to wear. It’s fun, fresh, playful, feminine and perfect for an afternoon in Miami. I paired it with my structured Gucci bag to tone down the fluffiness of the top and skirt. Perhaps, now for Spring I’ll wear this look with a bag that has a pop of color instead. I wore this little number to a dear friend of mine’s salon grand opening, “Je Suis Spa Hair Salon” in Miami, where lucky for me, my mom (Jussara) and uncle (Pablo) work. Read More…

Summer is soon approaching its finale, but wait! The Miami heat is still pretty out of control, so until temperatures drop, I’m going to continue to celebrate the endless summer dazzzze. I’ve shared with you ladies that I’m such a family girl. I love spending time with my mom, sisters, uncles, nieces, brothers, cousins and all. I love that quality family time. If you ever want to see the true version of my happy self, come on over when we are all together. Either we are in the pool having a major water fight, drinking wine and champagne by the fire pit, having a dance off competition between sisters (and now the nieces!) or cuddling in bed watching a movie, or just plain sitting around the kitchen table eating cookies and ice cream from the same jar. If two weekends have gone by and we have not gathered together, we call  an “emergency meeting”. I have four siblings. They are all so special in every way and I admire each one of them for their strength, devotion, the way they live life, the way they bring up their kids and the way they are all loyal to each other. Not for anything, but my family is the best! LOL…  Enough of me raving about them. Read More…

Hello there!

I shared with you all last week (here), the “behind the scenes”, and spilled how things really went down for Miami Swim Week.  I’m sure you all saw the busy bees we all were, but in the midst of the craziness, I got to spend one day lounging by the pool and catching up on some …zzzz. Read More…

{Dbrie + EscapeMiami2}

IMG_6511 Gorgeous weather, Miami heat, breathtaking view, water for days, gorgeous models and fashion chaos was happening behind the scenes this past Saturday, at the National Hotel in Miami Beach. I was invited by my sweet childhood friend and remarkable swimwear designer Danielle Pinder {her collection is legit y’all!} to strut around the runway in her new 2015 collection at the EscapeMiami 2 fashion show hosted by Annie- The FashionPoet. Oh, what an event! I definitely recommend you all to attend next year!

As I’ve shared in the past, I’m little miss shy {little is an understatement my friends!}, and as honored as I was for this invitation, I was filled with apprehension. I decided to face my fears and just do it… {A little background info for you} My mother and father were both models in their younger days so it was fun to follow on their footsteps for at least one day! Here are a few pictures of the show and what I wore {heat friendly ootd} to mingle prior and after the show {it was hot, for more than one reason, so this look I had on was perfect for the occasion!}.

Geri will be sharing with you later this week a bit more of the actual event and the great friends we made throughout the festivities. Hope you enjoy! Read More…
