GLAM DAMN IT
It's a beautiful thing for anyone who seeks out the good life when spa month and restaurant month coincide. It's an even better thing when you can experience a spa day and a gourmet dinner all in one place. Miami's top resorts have been known for having some of the nation's best spas for quite some time, but now that the foodie movement is in full force, it seems as if luxury hotels have also become the destination for epicurians seeking out some of the city's finest meals. For those of you who are addicted to enjoying life's finer pleasures and have an affinity for a good deal, August is the month to be in Miami when Miami Spa Month and Miami Spice overlap, and there are fewer places more adept at satisfying the most seasoned spa aficionados and ardent foodies than the Fontainebleau Resort on Miami Beach.

Dolce & Gabbana have taken a step down (in clothing size that is) as they launch their first children’s collection this coming July. According to WWD, Gabbana described the styles as being a mini version of their signature designs where there will be around 1,300 pieces in the collection from inner and outerwear, to swimwear, to accessories and footwear. The collection even includes designs dedicated to baptismal ceremonies. When describing the religious ceremonial pieces, WWD quoted Gabbana saying, “This is a homage to Italy and to our tradition. It’s part of our culture and marks one of the most important moments in our lives.”
Last Thursday traffic stopped on the streets of the West Village as Barak Obama and our First Lady, Michelle Obama, arrived at Sarah Jessica Parker’s brownstone townhouse for a fundraiser in their honor. SJP and her fashionable counterpart, Anna Wintour, hosted dinner for 50+ guests including a-listers like Meryl Streep, Aretha Franklin, Andy Cohen, Michael Kors, and Olivia Wilde.
The guests wined and dined for $40,000 a plate to show their support for Obama in the next election, as well as show off some fantastic styles. Parker played up her Sex and the City fashion sense in a lace ¾ length cocktail dress and some glitzy accessories including a studded necklace and a large-and-in charge diamond ring. Other guests donned sleek gowns, bright and tight dresses, and suits galore.
Avant-garde fashion is certainly not the norm. Modern, bold, and sometimes unusual; it’s an artistic take to fashion that is anything but boring. Pieces are often regarded as being unique, innovative, and abstract. Most designs in this category are not really wearable, unless you have a red carpet event to attend. Check out our top favorite avant-garde, yet totally wearable pieces- now if we can only come up with an excuse to wear them!
