The Ramblings

It’s out with the old and in with the new; the cliche that sums up the end of another year and the start of new things to come! It’s true that every day is an opportunity to star afresh, to set goals, and basically just be a better human; but, there is something about the…

NY Style Map: Feeling a 90s Snap in NYC

I miss New York.  I miss everything about it. I miss wearing sweaters. I miss complaining about how cold it is and dreading that first pang of freezing temperature that hits your face when you walk out of your building. I miss waiting at the bus stop for the M79 (immortalized forever by Vampire Weekend). I miss…

Kicking Off Memorial Day Weekend With Some Retro Bathing Suit!

It’s the long weekend and time to pack up the swimsuits, sunscreens, and coolers and head to your nearest beach! I, for one, can’t wait to sit out and catch some rays with some refreshing drinks and the latest gossip rags to keep me company!  And in the spirit of the festive long weekend, I wanted to…

Miami Style Map: Smelling the Roses at South Pointe Park

At first glance, the backdrop looks like manicured stadium seating at the Colosseum. But alas, we are not in Rome. However, we are in the picturesque grounds of South Pointe Park- tucked away behind Smith and Wollensky on Miami Beach. And I am a bit embarrassed to admit, this was actually my first time here. Thanks…

NY Style Map: The Sporty Minimalist at NYFW

Hello Squeezers! I’m back (sort of) and ready to dish on my favorite NYFW looks. It’s been a long two weeks made even more interesting and exhausting due in part to a cold virus that plagued the entire Buccio clan and overstayed its welcome. I’ll tell you, working fashion week while feeling like your head…

The storefront and its time machine of…

Miami Style Map: Having an 80’s Flashback in Grand Estates

Did you think I would spend a day on the beautiful Viscaya grounds and not take full advantage of wardrobe changes?! It’s not everyday you have a Versailles-inspired palatial villa in your own backyard.  If you remember a few months back, I posted some jaw-dropping photographs wearing a black and white vintage dress that I…

Miami Style Map: Diva in a Blue Dress

Pluck me from the manicured lawns of Coral Gables, and take me to the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island because that’s what I’m vibing in this vintage little number!  The 1920’s come alive on the great big lawn- with dance bands, flappers, and lots of champagne! And though I won’t be there next…

Miami Style Map: Overalls Get the Royal Treatment

If there was one trend the 90’s gave us that I was more than happy to see make a comeback it was the overalls. I never quite knew why they went away. As a kid/teenager, my overalls had legs- that’s how much use I got out of them. Granted, the trend at the time was…

Miami Style Map: Kicking off Mercedes Benz Swim Week in American Apparel

Mercedes Benz Swim Week kicks off this week in Miami and in the spirit of skimpy and sexy, I’m dedicating today’s post to this retro-inspired American Apparel high waisted sensation. And the beauty and glory of this suit wouldn’t be complete without the proper setting- in this case, the iconic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables,…
