Miami Swim Week Kicks Off with Peroni and Roxy

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.

Mercedes-Benz Swim Week + FUNKSHION Event Lineup by Style by Lynsee



The long awaited annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (Swim) and FUNKSHION Fashion Week are almost upon us, as fashion-goers and celebrity socialites prepare trips to the hot sands of Miami Beach.   Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (Swim) is one of the hottest IMG Fashion events which celebrates sexy swimwear designs throughout the world.  This annual event brings together celebrities, fashion leaders, and beauty enthusiasts at the acclaimed Raleigh Hotel.  Although a number of fashion events are available privately, there are also options for public guests to enjoy as well.

“Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim has a longstanding reputation as one of the summer’s can’t-miss events.  Miami is the only city in the world where the sexiness of the Collections on the runway is paralleled by what you see on the streets and around town,” says Stephanie Zimmer, Manager of Brand Experience Marketing for Mercedes-Benz USA. “The beach goers, the convertibles on the highway, the nightlife and ocean breeze are set to once again welcome our international guests.”

FUNKSHION Fashion Week provides the opportunity for those who aren't BFF's with designers or press to attend fashion shows and events of the same caliber.  This year's FUNKSHION events will be held at the beautiful SLS Hotel and SOHO Beach House.  Which events will you be attending?

FUNKSHION Fashion Week: The Red Dress Show OOTD

During FUNKSHION Fashion Week I attended the Red Dress Runway Show which benefited the American Heart Association.  Featuring local celebrities as well as the Real Housewives of Miami, the red dresses looked amazing on them!  This is a brief blog post, but I just wanted to show you what I wore to the event in addition to my hairstyle.  I rocked a faux-hawk that night, which was actually very simple to style.  Enjoy :)
