My New Miami Vice (and a few other things that happen to be on my mind.)

What:

Writing a heart-felt obituary, standing up against an online bully and falling in love with Michele Lopriore’s popular wing-tip oxford. (Yes, it’s been a busy few weeks since my last post.) 😁

Why:

Writing an obituary sucks; not just for the people grieving, but for the reporter who doesn’t really KNOW the person they’re writing about, at least in the traditional sense.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve had my head lodged in front of a computer, carefully crafting an obituary for a famous person who isn’t even dead yet. I know, I know, it sounds morbid, but it’s actually a compliment.

At least coming from us news types.

When you leave your mark on the world, especially if you’re a member of the rich and famous, you can’t show one ounce of mortality. Even a small dose of it can leave the press on high alert.

As a journalist, I can tell you “The End” is pretty significant when it comes to storytelling; even the anticipation of it. Right or wrong, it’s the world we live in and something I’ve grown accustomed to dealing with, although I do still have my moments…

Especially when my boss slinks up to me from across the Newsplex and whispers: “Sandoval, you need to write an obituary on so-&-so.” I act surprised and say: “Are they dying? Are they dead yet?” He always gives me the same look. I call it the “get your head out of your derrière look.” I used “derrière” to be polite.

Like a good reporter, I do the research, read, watch, listen; searching for the most compelling moments of the persons life.

Then, I do a few drafts combining facts, highlights and low lights. Adding some magic is a must, too. After all, it’s Hollywood we’re talking about.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older, but this last obituary really did a number on me. After dividing the person’s life into six decades and some change, the party was basically over or at least it seemed that way.

It made me sad, irritated and overly emotional. The piece came out good, but after it was edited and filed “in waiting,” I felt bad. Icky. Depressed.

Making matters worse, over the next few days, I saw the person everywhere: on the cover of a magazine in the grocery store check-out line, on a national morning show talking about a new project, even guest starring in a movie special on my favorite cable network, HBO.

He/she sure didn’t seem like they were dying to me…

But neither did Prince, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson or Joan Rivers. I realized, however sobering the obituary, the point was to be prepared and we were.

Also…

After breaking down the person’s life, I realized for the first time in mine, there were probably more decades behind me than in front of me, although the “Guinness Book of World Records” can really give a girl hope.

Not that I would look forward to being the oldest woman alive. I don’t think there’s enough botox in the world to keep me going until 117 (which happens to be the age of the oldest person on the planet. I looked it up.) 👵🏻

By the way, I realize I’m not entirely special here and that at a certain age most people come to this realization, but I have to admit, I’ve been acting a wee bit crazy because of it.

Some people call it a “mid-life crisis” — I call it “more shoes” (at least more than usual,) “more carbs” (spaghetti with marina sauce and fresh parmesan cheese) “more vodka and soda” (with extra lemon AND lime; why choose one?) And more of NOT turning the other cheek.

Without going into too much detail (because frankly, it’s not worth it), a woman attacked my appearance on social media the other day.

In TV, we’re taught to look the other way and not respond because it adds fuel to the fire and you just can’t win or maybe the hater is just looking for attention …

Believe me, I get it, BUT it really depends on what the person is saying and WHERE they’re saying it. I do not and will not tolerate any kind of cyber-bullying.

Look, if someone doesn’t like my outfit or thinks I shouldn’t have made a joke on Deco Drive and has genuine constructive criticism, that’s one thing; but a mean-spirited attack on how I look is another.

Especially when it’s on my OWN Facebook page. People get brave behind a computer, spew hate and it’s NOT RIGHT. So…

I stood up for myself and told the nay-sayer (in so many words) to take a hike and not a scenic one. I wasn’t rude or mean; who wants to be what they’re trying to deflect? I was, however, true to myself and you know what? It felt GOOD.

Say what you want, when you want and how you want to your own friends and family. Heck, put it on your own social media, but why would you come to MY page and attack me? SMH.

In this crazy age of Twitter, IG & FB, it’s easy to forget while swiping, liking and re-tweeting, there’s an actual person on the other side of that phone and/or computer. One with feelings, hopes, dreams and only a certain amount of decades behind or in front of them. We’re all creatures of humanity, are we not?

Anyway…

During all this mid-life crisis stuff, I was also thinking about my next blog: “My New Miami Vice” featuring wingtip loafers from Michele Lopriore Shoes and, how I’d actually go about writing it.

Then it dawned on me: at the “sole” of the blog (other than a stunning pair of bowling shoes) was another unexplainable shift in my behavior.

I live, eat and breath fashion, especially shoes, but I’m not always practical in my styling choices. Beauty is pain, no? At least it is for me. I try for comfy heels, but it doesn’t always work out that way. (I digress.)

When I first walked by Michele Lopriore Shoes at Brickell City Center downtown Miami, I was mesmerized by a pair of wingtip loafers in the window.

As I walked closer, I saw them in a variety of vibrant colors: red, blue, orange, pink and green. The shoes practically screamed “Miami!”

They had an incredible mix of textures, too, like linen, suede, sparkles, tassels etc. Once I tried them on — it was a done deal.

My foot easily slipped into the soft and supple shoe. Its bold wedge added extra comfort. It felt like — HEAVEN.

Was it really possible that I liked a Chic effortless loafer? Who was I? And where were the stilettos I had walked in with? Oh yeah, I stuffed them into my purse so I could wear “My New Miami Vice.”

I have a feeling those stilettos are going to be joining the decades behind me. Can you blame me? I never thought I’d feel beautiful in a loafer, but I did and do. Heck, my body feels better, too.

Michele Lopriore Shoes, which is new to Miami via Milan, is known for its exceptional Italian craftsmanship. The designer himself (Michele) has been perfecting his talents for 30 years. Translation: he really knows what he’s doing!

When you put on a pair of his shoes, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. The best part? You don’t have to sell an organ to afford a pair. It’s a good thing, too, because mine are running low 😆.

Don’t miss Deco Drive tonight at 7:30/11:30pm as we go inside Michele Lopriore Shoes to try-on their latest loafer trends. And…

Don’t worry, I’m not giving up on my heels just yet, but a girl does need a little down time every now and then — literally — and that’s why “My New Miami Vice” is one of my favorite things.

ps: The obituary is still in waiting.
pps: I blocked the hater.
ppps: I’m still having a midlife crisis.

What:

Shopping on the famed & fabulous Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida.

Why:

On a bright, crystal clear Saturday morning, my photographer (James) and I drove leisurely up the coast of Florida toward Palm Beach to spend a day shopping on Worth Avenue. Ooh la la! I was beyond excited…

Getting an inside look at one of the most glamorous shopping destinations in the country has always been a fashionable dream of mine. Before we arrived, though, I was mesmerized by the view.

As we snaked our way up the shoreline, the sun danced its way across the ocean onto land, illuminating some of the most palatial and perfectly manicured mansions I’d ever seen. Wow! Talk about awe-inspiring.

When I arrived at Worth Avenue, I was just as impressed. The pristine palm tree-lined street wasn’t just a chic oasis filled with beautiful shops. It had secrets, too, and I love secrets: mysterious pathways leading to courtyards filled with flowers, lush greenery, statues and fountains where even more shops, galleries and restaurants wait to be explored.

I’ve traveled to Europe a lot for work and Worth Avenue has that same kind of flair. Which isn’t surprising when you learn about its history. Back in the day (the early 1900’s), Worth Avenue became famous because of “The Everglades Club”…which was originally built by famed architect, Addison Mizner, as a hospital for wounded soldiers.

Eventually, Mizner (and friends) turned it into a shi-shi private resort. From there, upscale stores started popping up all around it and by the 1920’s, the place was booming with high quality merchandise and the rest is, as they say, fashion history.

The great thing about “Exploring Worth Avenue” is there’s definitely something for everyone, which I wasn’t sure about before I actually did the blog. Even though there are indeed luxury brands, most of the shops are locally-owned and accessible to the everyday person. Case-in-point, a boutique called Kiosk; my first stop while “Exploring Worth Avenue”…

Kiosk is this uber-chic, totally whimsical store like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Its owner (Natascha, a beautiful redhead from the Midwest) procures fashion and accessories from all over the world. The store is nothing short of jaw-dropping.

If you love the unique and unusual, this place will make you feel like a kid in a candy store. I’ve seen a lot of clothing in my time, but Kiosk is so freaking fabulous, I can’t wait to go back. What’s more, certain items are very affordable. I’m the kind of fashionista who shops hard, but buys smart.

Kristen Noffsinger, from Luxury PR Group, styled me in some amazing retro looks from Kiosk with an extra dash of funkiness. Both Kristen and I love the quirky and unexpected, with a hint of sophisticated romance. When I showed her one of our final blog pictures, she mused: “You look like the Alice in Wonderland of fashion.”

My next stop was Escada, one of my favorite luxury brands. Their clothes are a mix of modern glamour and bold elegance. I adored how they styled me, too, crossing sophisticated femininity with youthful flirty-ness — and who doesn’t love a bright red structured bag? It should be a staple in every fashionista’s wardrobe. How about a buttery yellow to-die-for-fold-over clutch? It was so soft and supple, I wanted to sleep with it!

After Escada, we meandered our way over to Calypso, which to me has always been the epitome of classy, bohemian beach living and the quintessential expression of Palm Beach style. The Worth Avenue store itself is a hidden gem, too: tucked away inside a quiet little courtyard that reminds me of something you’d see in the Greek Isles.

Wearing Calypso’s own label, laid-back glamour was the goal. The handmade detailing of the two dresses they styled were exquisite and the accessories were a subtle extension of both looks. And those petite clutches! OMG. Both were so spirited, adding extra pizzazz to an already WOW look. Now, to those shoes…

More specifically, the sandals. While “Exploring Worth Avenue,” we trailed down a mysterious narrow path (one of those aforementioned secrets) to visit “Via Capri, 34” — an intimate airy boutique, where Francesco Pasta (who’s actually from Capri, Italy) measures your feet and makes your shoe wardrobe complete with a pair of custom made sandals.

For me, the entire process of picking out my own style and everything that went along with it (leather, detailing and color) was incredibly gratifying. Then, to have them made right before my very eyes, well, that was pretty much the bomb-dot-com. It’s what Francesco’s wife Jessica describes as: “More than just shopping, it’s a true experience.” And, she’s exactly right…

Put it this way: the sandals are so good, Jessica (who was vacationing in Capri when she met Francesco) ended up with way more than just sassy sandals. After swamping emails and corresponding for a few years, they ended up getting hitched. Man, not only did she get the guy, but I’d kill to see her shoe wardrobe.

She’s a modern day Cinderella of sorts. You know the saying: “If the shoe fits..” yada-yada. You can’t make this stuff up! My experience at their store was one of the many reasons “Exploring Worth Avenue”… is so *WORTH* it.

You can easily make a day of it: drive up the coast, explore, shop til’ you drop and eat. Speaking of, don’t miss Friday’s Spotlight featuring “Bice Ristorante” which is also on the avenue. The pasta is beyond divine and their tiramisu is my newest obsession (and I’m not a sweets eater).

“Exploring Worth Avenue” was a new adventure for me and I adored everything about it, especially its visual appeal. It truly is a chic oasis with all of these amazing nooks and crannies to unearth and fall in love with. Plus, the shopping is like NO other place in the country and that’s why it’s one of my favorite things.

What:

Alepel Shoes (my newest obsession)!

Why:

It’s no big secret: I’m a shoe girl! *But* here’s a major newsflash: over the last few years, I’ve slowed my roll — majorly. What I mean is, I just don’t buy shoes the way I used to. For me to plunk down a chunk of change on a pair of heels, sandals or boots, they really have to rock my world. I like different, interesting and comfortable…

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not sitting on my back porch drinking Ensure and wearing Rockports. Instead, I’m just older, wiser and way choosier than I used to be. Back in the day, I loved a beautiful pair of classic sky-high heels in nude or black and would snatch up any style that fell under that category.

Matter of fact, you’d be hard-pressed not to find me in anything that wasn’t safe and basic. I wanted my outfit to do the talking and my shoes to be a subtle extension of what I was wearing. Fast forward a decade later…

Now, when it comes to my personal style, I tend to gravitate toward streamlined, classic clothing (on television I’m a little trendier), but when I dress for myself, I let my shoes do the talking and of course, the walking. 😁👠 With that being said…

Lately, I’ve been completely obsessed with a good shootie (that’s a high heel and a bootie combined.) Mainly, because I like my shoes to say something; preferably, something provocative and bold (without costing me an arm and a leg). After all, I’ve gotta keep feeding my retirement account so I don’t end up becoming the person Carrie Bradshaw so eloquently described on ‘Sex and the City’: “I will literally be the old woman who lives in her shoes.” Well — that’s surely NOT going to happen on ALEPEL’s watch.

The first time I saw a pair of ALEPEL’s I was incredibly impressed. It was a nondescript weekend; I was returning a batch of television wardrobe to “Koko & Palenki” in the Aventura Mall. Koko is my end-all/be-all when it comes to shoes and fashion. They have the latest and greatest in what you should be rocking fashionably on your feet and then some…

I remember the shoe distinctively: it was color-blocked (a metallic beige-y gold with black suede straps, a beautiful long heel and an orange stripe on the bottom of the sole that ran up alongside the back of the heel). I picked up the floor sample and sniffed them, like an excitable dog eager to make a new friend.

They reminded me of Chanel, but sexier. The quality was solid and the shoe was interesting. Not only that, they were pretty comfortable (especially for a high heel). If they were good enough for Koko, well, they were good enough for me. I bought them on the spot, which I NEVER do. I’m a thinker. I usually try it on, go home and mull it over. They were also super-affordable for a high end, luxury shoe.

About a year later, ALEPEL’s designer – Adriana Epelboim – who’s originally from Caracas, held a meet and greet at Koko. I couldn’t make it because of my work schedule, but she sent me these really cool gold and orange shooties, with cut-outs that laced up the front of the ankle. I became OBSESSED with them. Despite being two colors I’d never put together, they practically went with everything in my closet.

A few months later, I finally got the chance to meet Adriana in person at the Royal Palm Hotel on South Beach (to feature her in the blog). She’s a beautiful, soft-spoken blonde who’s creative, chic and artistic. Although Adriana is an architect by education, she’s taken her love of art, science and design and is “Crossing The Line” into new fashion territory.

Buildings, structures, shapes and patterns inspire her and you can easily see those influences in her creations. She says her line is all about “intersecting architecture and fashion into unique and comfortable designs.”

What’s more, each shoe she designs is bequeathed with something called “The Line” — a rubber injection on the leather sole that never wears out. “No matter how many times you wear them,” Adriana muses. (Take that, Christian Louboutin.) She also tells me “the line is the basic symbol of every architect, we speak through lines.”

Adriana’s designs are bold, sexy and interesting; pretty much everything I look for in a shoe. Instead of talking TO me, her shoes talk FOR me…of sophistication and worldliness. She describes the ALEPEL style as “elegance with a twist” and I couldn’t agree more!

Don’t miss Deco Drive tonight, as we get up close and personal with Adriana and Alepel’s new spring trends. I’m in love with the rose gold and mesh textures she’s using in her newest designs (pictured in the blog). Plus, find out how to customize your own ALEPEL shootie.

If you’re looking for a classic design with an elegant twist, ALEPEL is “Crossing The Line” one fashionable step at a time and that’s why they’re one of my favorite things.

What:

Melissa Shoes inside Dadeland Mall at 7535 N. Kendall Drive, Miami, Florida 33156

Why:

The first time I got my hands on a pair of “Melissa Shoes,” I held them up to my nose, inhaled deeply and purred out-loud: “These smell like Juicy Fruit!” I was half-joking, but later found out each pair is indeed infused with what the company calls a “signature childhood scent.” Every customer seems to smell something different when their nose makes contact with the shoe: bubble gum, strawberry and cotton candy are the most popular descriptions. That’s not all…

The uber-comfy shoes are made out of 100% recyclable material; more specifically, a special kind of plastic called Melflex (which is extremely flexible, durable, hypoallergenic and waterproof). I like my Melissa’s because they’re comfortable, creative and cool. Anytime I wear a pair, I get quizzed about their contagious personality.

Believe you me, I have a lot of shoes, but there’s just something unique about them that I LOVE. I think it has to do with Melissa’s team, which is made up of some of the most talented fashion designers of our time, like Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Herchcovitch and Karl Lagerfeld.

Besides being ridiculously comfortable with a cra-cra, yummy-good candy smell, the company (which is based in Brazil), is named after a South American flower known as the “Melissa.” I find it all extremely romantic, not to mention exotic.

Even though “Melissa Shoes” has been around for 40 years, making women and girls “Pretty in Plastic,” its boutique concept is fairly new to the U.S. I love the new Dadeland location.

I think this is a really great shoe to add to your closet. For me, it’s super affordable (after my holiday spending) and incredibly fashionable. Plus, who doesn’t wanna look fabulous while saving the planet? Looking “Pretty in Plastic”‘ is definitely one of my favorite things. 🙆🌎

When:

Monday-Saturday 10am-9:30pm, Sunday 12pm-7pm.

Where:

“Melissa Shoes” at the Dadeland Mall is the company’s newest South Florida location. If you’re stopping by the sleek, modern and charmingly chic boutique, use the main entrance and it’s a few stores down on the left. Happy shopping!

What:

Kruzin, 1602 Washington Street, South Beach 33139

Why:

It’s no big secret; I have a lot of shoes, I see a lot of shoes and I wear a lot of shoes, but when I discovered “Kruzin,” I knew my shoe game would never be the same. The brand is completely awe-inspiring: sexy, sophisticated, fashion-forward, edgy and (wait for it)… COMFORTABLE! Yeah, I said it.

Imagine, looking good and feeling good. Well, personally, I could use me a big ol’ heap of that; especially as of late. A few months ago, I tore my meniscus, promptly had surgery and now, I’m in the thick of physical therapy. It’s been incredibly hard; hobbling and wobbling around for months in what I call my “unattractive, get better soon, shoes.”

For the most part, I’ve completely and unabashedly ignored my gorgeous high heel shoe collection. Sometimes, I can’t even walk into my closet without my vain little fashionista heart breaking. Don’t judge me, I miss my heels and no kind-of flat can ever take care of that… at least, that’s what I used to think.

Lucky for me, a few months ago something magical happened. Designer extraordinaire Alessandra Gold and I decided to collaborate on the latest and greatest trends from her aforementioned uber-chic, sneaker line. Our schedules have both been so crazy, though, it took an act of God to get us in the same place at the same time, but when we FINALLY did, her shoes came “Kruzin” into my life at just the right time. I mean, a girl can only wear her “unattractive, get better soon, shoes” for so long.

Kruzin isn’t just about bold and extravagant designs; originality, comfort and off-the-chart quality is priority. “We are not an athletic company, we are a fashion company,” Alessandra told me during a recent interview for Deco Drive. The designer’s IT kicks of the season? The Chrome Collection; featuring silver and gold materials, peppered with whimsical detailing, giving the shoes texture and personality. Even the shoes mascot, the Daredevil, is a surefire sign you’re wearing something exciting and dynamic.

For the blog, Alessandra didn’t just dress me in her best kicks, she also introduced me to Kruzin’s brand new Capsule Clothing Collection (in collaboration with Designer, Lisu Vega.) It’s a line of dresses, blazers, pants, shirts and skirts that have this amazing high fashion look crossed with skater-girl perfection. Add in Alessandra’s ‘Booster’ (a comfy insert she created to raise you up as if you’re wearing heels) and viola! I’m finally a member of the prestigious group: “Chicks in Kicks.’

Wearing head-to-toe Kruzin made me feel strong, pretty and unique and really, isn’t that what fashion is all about: bringing out self confidence and self expression. While the line continues gracing the feet of celebrities around the planet (as far-reaching as Asia,) its roots are solidly planted right here in the Magic City and that’s definitely why it’s one of my favorite things…not to mention the fact that I’m literally “Kruzin” my way back into fabulous footwear after a crazy knee injury. Hello, Daredevil; goodbye five-inch heels. 😈

Where:

Kruzin has the coolest shop on South Beach, right in between Lincoln Road and 16th Street (making it easy to find.) Because of the natural hustle and bustle of the beach, especially during season, street parking is really tough. The good news? There are three easily accessible parking garages right by the store: one in front, back and catty-corner.

If you make a special trip to the beach to check out the store, make a day of it and walk Lincoln, along with all the great restaurants it has this really amazing retro flea market every other weekend. The next two are November 8th & 22nd. Happy Shopping!

When:

Sunday-Thursday 11am-8pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-9pm.
