Weekend Real Estate Stalking

As I previous wrote, we met up with so many people during our vacation to Florida.  We were so lucky to be able to spend the day at the beach and dinner with my husband's aunt and cousin.  Tom's aunt's house was so full of heirlooms that were once his grandparents.  It was so awesome to see a little bit of our family's history.   I loved the decor of this charming Florida beach house.  It was so beautifully eclectic and every gorgeous item painstaking collected throughout the years.  Bon Weekend!!!

Don't you love the Tiffany Blue front door?

The outside courtyard was so lovely!!

Paintings done by my husband's grandmother many years ago!

The Faena Miami Beach

As I am writing this to you, I am leaving Florida.  I am so sad to leave the Sunshine State.  We had so much fun during this trip.  We met up with family and friends.  Visited a ton of places but the highlight of the trip had to be our stay at the Faena in Miami.  It is the most amazing hotel.  The Faena first opened it's doors last year during Art Basel and has been getting rave reviews ever since.  The hotel has been voted the best in Miami and Virtuoso travel's best of the best hotel, design and service wise in the WORLD!!!  Of course we had to check it out...OMG!!!!!!!!!!!  Did it live up the the hype. The decor was out of this world.  We especially loved the poolside butlers that cool you off with water "sprinkles" and deliver infused beverages.  I have to say the experience was quite amazing.  They did have an after dinner show, that we did not get to see, but I am dying to go back soon!!!!

Thursday in Miami

Today I spent my last day in Florida in Miami attending the Fashion For Breakfast fashion show and lecture by the amazing vintage store What Goes Around Comes Around at the incredible Soho Beach House.  It was such a spectacular day.  The vintage fashions were so beautiful and the setting and attendees so chic.  What Comes Around has so many incredible vintage finds.  The best piece of advice we were given today by the owners, Seth and Gerard is to invest in designer accessories.  They hold their value and are amazing investments.  Clothes not so much and shoes not at all.  Hmmmmm very interesting!!!!!  Check out the What Goes Around Comes Around website HERE.  Here are some photos from an incredible day!!!
