Miami Recap: Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim

Nina Agdal in Elizabeth and James

Whether you think of it as jet-setting (read: glamorous) or schlepping (read: the antithesis of glamour), flying around the country in 48 hour stints has its ups and its downs. We’re exasperated and excited all at once to say: we’re in Miami, *****!

In a nutshell, presenting at the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge was a TOTAL treat.  First of all, we could not have dreamed of better hostesses and event coordinators than Olivia and Helena. Setting up an entire booth for presentation with 300+ pounds of materials, merchandise, and equipment, and only one hour and two people to do so has never been so stress-free.  Before we knew it, we were ready to roll.

Among the visitors to our booth, we had Louis Sarmiento of Daily Front Row, rising star models Nina Agdal and Taylor Hannum, Dana Ravich of the TODAY Show, Miami-Ibiza-based DJ Patrick Pizzorni of Triarchy, the face behind famed Twitter account @FashionWeekNYCDaniel Saynt of Socialyte, and many other bloggers and writers excited to be attending the event.

We were also covered on the Miami CBS 6 o’clock news hour featuring some of our co-presenters and attendees speaking on the LRL, as well as yours truly speaking on behalf of DITTO!  Watch Here!

Once again, a huge thank you to Olivia and Helena for putting on such an incredible opportunity of an event, to Louis and
 Daily for their co-sponsorship and exposure, and to our co-presenters for putting on equally exciting presentations making the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge that much better.

And Miami… We’ll see you next year!
