I joined forces with my friend and fashion producer, Regi, to create a mini style photo story on how to wear a bodysuit during Basel, featuring the high end bodysuit line Alix. Alix designer and creative director, Alexandra, is a Miami native who resides and produces all pieces in New York. While Alix is a fresh new line it's already making waves in the fashion industry with inventory sold in top retail boutiques including Intermix and mentions on top fashion magazines. Regi and I wanted to shoot a very "real girl" story indicative of the versatile Miami gal while making the looks inspirational for all girls in any location. All tops featured are bodysuits by Alix and are great staples for a versatile wardrobe.

FALL MIAMI WEDDING



Dress: ML Monique Lhuillier via Rent the Runway, Shoes: Zara (old) Bag: Borrowed

Maybe you're thinking it's Summer time - because I'm not wearing a coat, but this is what Fall in Miami looks like most days. This weekend I glammed up for a wedding at the beautiful Spanish Monastery near Aventura. My infatuation for ball gown skirts has been running real deep these days and I took the opportunity to give the look a spin for this occasion. Unfortunately I couldn't find a classic ball skirt I wanted to invest in (and a well done one runs upwards of $600) so I did the next best thing and rented this ML Monique Lhuillier gown from Rent the Runway. This is my fifth time renting a gown from RTR and it's always been a positive experience. My friends always ask me how I know a dress will fit and my advice is to always select a style that you know will flatter your body type. Don't try to get adventurous with your choices if you're apprehensive your selection will not be a good fit. Regardless, RTR gives you the option of renting the same dress in two sizes (for free) so there's wiggle room for error (literally). This is not a sponsored post, just sharing my positive experience to hopefully help you!
