Art Basel 2012: Day cuatro!
It was my last day in Miami before I was off the next morning to NYC. We were supposed to head down to south beach on this day but me and the beau decided to relax and enjoy something a little closer to home like the stunning rooftop pool of our complex that had a breathtaking view of Brickell. I was stoked to enjoy a more private rendezvou in my new vintage swimsuit as it was a bit too scandalous for Miami beach (or not). I bought the swimsuit at Vintage Revenge just a few days earlier at Biscayne Boulevard with no intentions of actually wearing it outside of a photo shoot but figured, why not? I could let it collect dust as a collection piece or wear it with pride, so I wore it with pride. As I said before, the owner and I don’t really know if it is truly vintage Versace (I don’t care either) from the 80’s as the tag was snipped off. However, it seems legit to me so I wore the swimsuit with a vintage blouse (I also found in Miami) that was also vintage Versace-esque and it worked together perfectly.
It was a relaxing day well spent before we were off to Wynwood to check out a few more galleries we might have missed. Sadly, my Nikon was acting up so all I had was my phone to document the entire day. For my last day, we really made it count. Wynwood was booming with art lovers and music, the streets were lined with amazing classic cars, the art was inspiring, and I got to wear another one of my Miami vintage finds, a Hawaiian dress I found at Red, White and Blue! To top off of an amazing day, when I arrived at Fania to support my best friend Santiago, he was doing a live painting of ME! I couldn’t believe my eyes and am so excited to show you the finished piece (when he finishes it lol). He did such an amazing job showcasing his art at this event and people were drooling over his work. I love to see my friends succeed and am so proud of him. Alas, after a great ending at Fania, my trip was over. What was the best part about my trip to Miami? Spending it with my love and all of my friends who attended. It was such an amazing experience and I can’t wait to do it again next year!
The view.The suit. An 80’s high-waist but I dig it!The swimsuit on ;). I was kinda nervous putting this pic up on instagram as I usually don’t post pictures like this too often but figured, what the hell. If I look great and feel great, that’s all that matters.Heaven.
Love how this top compliments the swimsuit.
