And so it begins...
Summer just wouldn't be summer without a stack of invitations inundating my inbox, guaranteeing me access to my favorite fashion event of the year, the one that takes place in my sandbox, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim.
Tonight, the fashion frenzy begins with the acclaimed Australian swimwear line Lisa Blue kicking off the beach fashion festivities, prepping us for 5 days of endless bikini bottoms, bare midriffs, caftans, tunics, tans, and all that summertime jazz.
No stranger to the scene, Lisa Blue founder Lisa Burke returns for the 3rd time to MB Fashion Week Swim with a collection inspired by the Year of the Dragon. I'm expecting to see some hot, fiery and powerful pieces... eat a horse heart powerful, like the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen [*disregard if you don't watch Game of Thrones].
Who am I looking forward to seeing? Dancing with the Stars star Karina Smirnoff is rumored to be rumba'ing her way down the runway, DWTS host Brooke Burke and hubby/alumni Baywatch babe David Charvet, celeb chef Travis London, Maroon 5's lead guitarist James Valentine, Real Miami Housewife Adriana de Moura, and pageant princess Indiana Sanchez (no relation).
Fashion for a Cause - Lisa Blue is also pledging 25% of their profits to help save the whales and dolphins, which makes me love her new line before the first model even hits the catwalk.
I’ll be tweeting on the scene, so if you aren’t already a LetsTalkStyle follower, follow away.
