In spite of the copious rain downpours, Miami fashion-goers made their way out to kick off Mercedes-Benz Swim Week 2013.  Peroni invited select guests for the 2nd annual “Sneak Peek Swim Kick Off” at the Soho Beach House penthouse, complete with Peroni beverages and a live DJ on the 1’s and 2’s.  Italia Independent gifted myself and the other top Miami fashion bloggers with custom Miami Swim Week 2013 sunglasses, which are fabulous with blue velvet frames and mirrored lenses.

The Roxy Pop Surf event at The Raleigh and Ocean Drive magazine party at the Surfcomber were moved indoors.  Roxy showcased a fashion presentation filled with bright and vibrant colors, Hawaiian prints, and bold patterns.  One aspect of Miami that I’ve noticed in my time here is that rain or poor weather doesn’t keep anybody inside.
