A Fashionista During Basel

In this midst of Art Basel I find myself shopping, obviously!!! My “go-to” –  MVM Miami located in the heart of Wynwood: The mecca of Art Basel and walking distance from the Art Miami tents. I luckily find a spot right on the street (crazy right!?) and before I take a step in my brand new hot pink suede Sergio Rossi shoes (Chanukah present from the hubby), I bump into a graffiti artist named Noah who happens to be working in the same color palette as I’m wearing!  Naturally, we decide to throw his “boy” my camera and turn his “not yet titled” masterpiece into the backdrop for an impromptu photo-shoot!  I quickly thanked the boys and continued on my way until I found yet another group of graffiti artists working on a huge mural that was just- breathtaking. Unfortunately no photo-shoot this time, but I did get to take some “quickies” with my phone and a little ig (instagram) video.  Check it out @daramichellestyle.

Finally, I arrived at the MVM boutique, which was having an exclusive Torn by Ronny Kobo event in honor of Art Basel.  It seemed likely that this designer would be featured at this moment.  Ronny Kobo’s eye for color and details would make even Picasso turn his head. As a whole, the collection is timeless and captivating with upbeat elements in the intricate details, original prints and the finest of fabrics.  And if you don’t believe ask Rhianna, Megan Fox, or Kim Kardashian who have all rocked this label!!! Among my favorites were an aztec-esque printed crop top and matching flair skirt, a black and white geometric dress, and a knit top that I wore for the event. I loved taking this luxurious black and white peplum knit top and pairing it with distressed denim. Inspired by all the color from Art Basel, I chose to create a “pop” to my otherwise neutral palette of black/white/denim with hot pink pumps and a matching clutch by Sergio Rossi.  I completed the look with hot pink lipstick by MAC makeup called “Candy Yum-Yum” .

The event was so fun, the clothes ah-mazing, and the neighborhood beyond inspiring- what more could a fashionista want during Art Basel!!! Extra bonus: I got to hang with my girl and owner of MVM Miami, Melissa Mosheim. This girl is so sweet and has a killer eye for all things fashion.  If you are in the hood for Basel, make sure to check out this gem and don’t be surprised if you run into a couple of street artists and take part in a few impromptu photo-shoots along the way!!! The only thing better than shopping in this store is walking to it! Hope you enjoy the pics below!
