urban jungle – 02

dress: Geld Iaz, 2011

 

remember when i said something like The W is my new favorite hotel in Miami? well i kinda take it back. sort of.

one of the great things about Miami Beach (as opposed to the other wonderful quick direct-flight getaways like Punta Cana, Providenciales, or Bahia Beach) is that when you arrive, you aren’t just stuck in one resort all the time with no place else to go. it’s a lot like NYC in that you can pretty much walk everywhere and there are so many good restaurants and shops and whatnot. also it has all the major mega-drugstores, which makes packing so much easier, you never have to be afraid you’ve forgotten something important like aspirin or tampons or your favorite brand of toothpaste.

the funny thing about The Setai though, is that you arrive at its Miami Beach location and then you never want to leave the place. as much as i used to love The Raleigh and do appreciate The W, i must say this visit totally reminded me The Setai really really really is above and beyond all others. every amenity is truly superb and the service is remarkably impeccable. so, yea. and i just signed up for a Starwood Preferred Guest membership too. sigh, ah well.

dinner at Mr Chow. drinks at The Setai.

 

perfect mistake

the only reason i have this dress is because a client ordered one, but i ruined it while making it so i had to make it again. i had this bright idea to use clear nail polish to help seal possible runs in knits while inserting eyelets in the oh forget it never mind. in any case, it turns out i need to be a lot more careful where the nail polish drips.

oh well. i kinda like this dress actually.

very late lunch at Gemma.

no, seriously though— this is the very first time i wore these classic YSL Tributes since i got them last year, and they are, without a doubt, the most comfortable pair of (5.75 inch) stilettos i have ever donned (and i have worn me some heels boy, believe that). i practically jogged in them this day, i am not even kidding.

wow i really love them.
