party in the city (week 1)

Week one of the Miami adventure has drawn to a close. A little of shopping plus a little bit of sunshine plus a lot of giggles ( in addition to a full week at work) gives you a semi tanned, retail happy blogger. 

The post work activities included, hitting Dolphin Mall for a wander around the newly opened Forever 21 which is in a new space in the outlet mall. The shop is giant. It’s actually hard to find your way around. I went with a strategy to F21 this time with the intention of building a really funky outfit. I ended up with black silk shorts, a black sleeveless top with buttons down the front and a lace back. By tucking the top into the shorts it looks really elegant and very night-on-the-town-in-the-hottest-city-in-the-planet.

We also hit Dadeland and I stocked up on some make up in Mac and Sephora. I even discovered a new self tan by the people who bring Mystic tan to the people of the US. It goes on great, very even and not orange, which is a must.

The highlight of the week however, was seeing the fabulous Rhianna in concert. She was incredible and the Miami crowd went wild for her. I have never danced so much at a gig in my life. She looked stunning with over 5 costume changes in less than an hour and the icing on the cake was the huge pink army tank at the side of the stage! Words cannot describe I tell you…sigh.

The fashion find of the trip was in the chain, JC Penney. Charlotte Ronson is the latest guest designer to hit the shop floor with her I LOVE RONSON line. It’s fun, colourful, light textured and really affordable. I bought two pieces and it cost less than $30. Plus I got an extra 15% because I was from out of town (Macy’s also offer a similar discount too, you just need your passport).

Here are some of the images from the adventure so far!
