Dress – no-label vintage from Blackout II in London; Shoes – Alberta Ferretti; Sunglasses – Dior; Bag – Louis Vuitton.

Having spent most of our time downtown on this trip, we decided to spend our last day in Miami near Ocean Drive exploring and people-watching. As much as I love museums and galleries, I often think you can tell more about the current culture of a place, particularly a city, by browsing the streets and watching people wander by. Sitting back and observing is particularly rewarding in Miami beach, as there is never a dull moment. Everything is showy and everyone seems upbeat. I thought this would be the perfect place to wear this not-exactly understated dress (no label) that I found in a vintage store in Covent Garden, London. I’ve always loved short dresses with long sleeves (I wish I’d been around in the 60s!) and I had to buy this ridiculously cute crochet example when I saw it. I didn’t want to make the whole thing too theme-y with flats, so I matched the dress with some snake-skin heels by Alberta Ferretti. n.b. My mum informs me that in Italy they call open-backed shoes Sabot shoes but in English and French apparently this means clog?! What would you call this style of shoe?
