miami swim fashion week {day 1}

As some of you may know from whisperings on Twitter, I'm currently in Miami (my first time here!) with Socialyte for Miami Swim Fashion Week. After flying in on a red eye from San Francisco yesterday and arriving at the oasis-like Sofitel Hotel, it's been a whirlwind of hanging out with blogging friends (new and old), tackling the humidity and enjoying some seriously breathtaking beach views. (San Francisco beaches, I love you, but Miami takes the cake on this one.)

Speaking of breathtaking views, our first order of business was stopping off at the brunch you see above at the Soho Beach House, hosted by the lovely folks at Bal Harbour Shops. It was a great way to unwind after a long string of flights (hello champagne cocktails!) and meet some local Miami bloggers. Plus, after chatting with Cheryl Stephenson, director of marketing for Bal Harbour Shops, about the namesake magazine you see above, I'm convinced she has one of the most enviable jobs around. (The editorial spreads alone are incredible.)  Of course, I can't wait to check out their shops later this weekend, which Cheryl assured me herself, there will be plenty of shoe stores to hold me over. For more information and updates about Bal Harbour Shops, you can sign up for their newsletter here.

Coming up? Stay tuned to see what I wore to the brunch!

  15. I have been working in the fashion industry for 10 years now, and I found finding a fashion job when first starting out a little difficult, but I have come across some great websites that had quality fashion positions: and Everybody wants experience first, which can be hard if it’s your first fashion job,however I found doing a short course in Fashion Design a great way to get experience and knowledge of the industry.La Mode College has some great short courses, and they include how to get work experience as well.They have a short eBook on how to get into the fashion industry and become a Professional Fashion Designer.Worth a read! Hope this post was helpful!!
