For one week out of the year, Miami turns into "the city that doesn't sleep". If you're like me, you want to try to do every single thing possible and over book your schedule times 3. Hopefully you're not like me.
Although I'm a local to Miami, unlike the majority of visitors for Art Basel, I'm still trying to master how to tackle it myself! For the past 2 years, I didn't feel like I took advantage of this awesome week. I worked events and went to an art gallery here or there. This year I wanted to dive in. Unfortunately, the universe aligned my final exams to be the same week. As much as I wanted to pretend 60% of my final grades didn't depend on this week, I did what any other responsible yet FOMO driven college student would do- Try to do both at the same time.
Originally, I wanted to work with a stylist for my looks but I didn't end up having time to meet with someone (remember that whole trying to do both thing?) So I ran to one of my favorite places ever, Buffalo Exchange in Downtown Hollywood. I had an idea of the types of looks I wanted to go for, so I grabbed whatever caught my eye. Since my usual wardrobe is very casual & comfy, I wanted to do something different for me...more out there. I don't always look like a fashionista, but when I do, Art Basel is my excuse.
