MIAMI



Ate breakfast at The Delano
Service 8/10
Food 8/10
The interior is so beautiful here, watch out for squirrels that jump onto your table.
Tanned at The Gansevoort
Service 8/10
Food 6/10
Go to the left and centre of the roof top pool for prime tanning position.
Dinner at Nobu
Service 8.5/10
Food 8/10 overpriced, but have the mango martini, it’s delicious.
A brief, but incredible open top car tour of Miami courtesy of
furniture designer Jack Levy was followed by dancing at Mokai - a club with a high Jersey Shore-type count.
Wore:
Dress by Juicy Couture
Hat by Celine
Bracelet stylist’s own
Sandals by H&M





Breakfast at The Betsey on Ocean Drive
Food 5/10
Service 5/10 The staff don’t seem to enjoy their jobs very much - or life.
Tanned on South Beach. Lie out at the top of Ocean Drive for a chilled time, or move up outside The Raleigh for a buzzier time.
Dancing at Florida Room
The crowd is a lively mix of business types who have wives that don’t know that they’re on a night out, and Miami hip-hop ballers.
Wore:
Dress by House of Holland
Sandals by Office




Yoga first thing at The Gansevoort. The instructor was patronising and made me chant.
Tanned at Soho Beach House.
Evening Cocktail #1 at STK  more of a sports bar, hence the down to earth crowd. Not worth a visit unless you have a thing for the NFL and steak.
Cocktail #2 at The Setai the most 'of the moment' and upmarket hotel in Miami, and one of the most beautiful. The Asian inspired courtyard is a must see. The crisps or ‘chips’ are, like most things here, made on the premises and yummy.
Dinner at Casa Tua (don’t be put off by this ludicrous website).
The Miami hype around this restaurant is next level and while its beautiful, it’s like many an Italian tratoria. Try and get a seat outside and order the buffalo mozzarella starter. The members bar upstairs is worth a visit if you have your blagging hat on.

Wore:
Playsuit by Room31

Hired a car from Signature (much cheaper than Avis) and went on the hunt for some vintage shops. We drove out of town to the part of Miami where women have faces like leather and Juicy Couture velour is still in favour. Here we found C Madeline's. A huge sprawling warehouse filled with vintage from the 1920s, right up to '90s Versace, alongside some designer and couture. I interviewed the owner Madeline (blog post coming soon). We went to The Design District for lunch to a bistro called Michael's which was sweet, but book because it gets busy.
Wore:
Dress by DKNY
Bag Celine
Shoes Bstore (again)


Dinner at Mr Chow's at The W Hotel with a friend who was staying at The Shelbourne AKA '1980s Beirut'. Anyway, Mr Chows...
Food 9/10
Service 9/10
After we went for drinks at Mango, not sure I've ever been anywhere better than this place. Coyote Ugly meets America's Best Dance Crew on stage with a dash of what can only be described as Glee inspired stripping.
