Day 3 of MB Fashion Week left me feeling like a total VIB, a very important blogger. Last night I enjoyed the royal treatment with a front row view of the newest collection from the mistress of poolside chic, Caffe Swimwear designer Paula Saavedra.
It's very rare for me to get a good shot during these events, (I even broke my camera a few years ago in an attempt to secure a backstage interview) but last night I completely filled my phone's photo gallery with shot after shot of gorgeous looks without being pushed, shoved and/or stepped on. Have a look see for yourself -
Not too shabby. I might end up giving those Getty Images guys a run for their money.
As for the collection, Caffe Swimwear's 2013 line featured a hot and tropical themed assortment of swimsuits, resortwear and cover-ups in a myriad of color combinations guaranteed to suit any jetsetter. Along with sleek solid colored suiting, Paula paired colorblocked bikini tops with classic black bottoms, and threw in a festive mixture of floral and coral reef patterns and prints accessorized with gold accented straw and crochet bags, slicked back ponytails and minimal jewelry that tied together every look.
I'm a sucker for sexy coverups that I can get away with wearing on the sand as well as the street once the sun goes down, and Caffe Swimwear offered the perfect beachy mini dresses, frocks, caftans and cover-ups that were South Beach chic and cooler than an iced latte.
Here are some other pics, taken by those other guys:
