Miami Style Map: Singing the Blues in Surfside

My friends say I need a little push to walk on the ‘wild side’ from time to time. And this is most likely true. I can be a real square on occasion. Living on the ‘wild side’ doesn’t really appetize me. I like to follow rules, not break them. And if I do, there’s got…

Welcome to the Dollhouse

 Some time in 2014, at the suggestion of my BFF and occasional inside voice, I steered clear of floral prints because according to him, I was single-handedly keeping the trend alive based on the ridiculous amounts of floral pieces I owned.
