I was extra pumped when I was asked to style one of the models (provided by the D.A.M.A Schools) at the event using only the inventory from the vendors on site. I was up for the fashion challenge! Once I met my beautiful model, Allison, we hopped from table to table picking out items for her potential look. The first piece I fell in love with, a tropical motif sheer button-down blouse, gave way to the rest of the outfit. The blouse came courtesy of Love Shopping Miami, an online shop carrying everything from bright clutches to leopard shorts.
I also picked up a coral envelope clutch for my model's look at Love Shop Miami, which I later purchased for myself!

I wanted to keep her earrings simple and I was able to do that with the help of jewelry line, Tarbay. They had the most unique pieces, including the heart shaped wire earrings I picked out.
And with that, my model was set for her runway debut. It was fun getting to hear all the positive feedback on her outfit and on all the pieces I used. I kept describing her look as "urban-tropical" since we blended styles and pieces to achieve something vibrant and upbeat that still oozed street cred.
