Hello my fashion follower! It has been a while since I posted anything and I missed you all!  For this post I am trying something new.  I attended an event last night at BUCK 15 which was the fabulous host bar for the after party for the BASE Spring preview after party.   Unfortunately for me I was not able to snag an invite to the actual event at BASE but I was able to attend the after party which of course is where all the fun actually happens.   But lets start at the beginning,  BASE held a fashion show preview for the new ADIDAS SLRV collection which will premiere at the famed South Beach retailer later this spring.  The “who’s who’s” of the Miami Fashion scene were in attendance (which is why I probably couldn’t snag the invite, but i digress) and the new line is a hit for ADIDAS. The real fun, however, happened at the after party which was held at the hip and untrendy BUCK 15 LOUNGE. BUCK 15 is a staple in the South Beach scene.  It’s the place to go for those of us who just want to relax, look at some cool art, and have a great cocktail without the usual craziness and massiveness of the “TRENDY” Miami club scene.  The DJ for the evening was the famed South Florida Drag Queen DAISY DEAD PETALS (look her up if you don’t know the name).  Dead Petals spun hot music and the bartenders served up the cold drinks all night long.  All in all it was a fun event and I am happy to have been able to bring it to you, my fashion followers.  So if you want to try a different vibe then the usual South Beach craziness, put on your skinny jeans, graphic tee, and fedora and head on over to BUCK15 for a little taste of the East Village by the water.
