I made a pit stop in Miami on my way back from Brazil! Even after spending 8hrs on the flight once I touched down in Miami I didn't stop; breakfast at Lincon Road, then a shower and spent the rest of the day looking at Art! Great Lunch at Designer District with my husband and amazing friends, I was the only girl and I don't mind, always have a great time with the boys! After lunch we hit Art Miami... I was really amazed! I think we did saw most of it... it's smaller than Art Basel, but still you need to be ready to do some walking; glad I did it! Love to see Miami so lively with a lots of interesting people and things to do!
I look forward to be back every year if, I can!
made out of boxes!!!

Christian Dior vivid accessories line in collaboration with German contemporary art star Anselm Reyle arrives in select Dior boutiques worldwide on Jan. 9.
But they first made an appearance during the Art Basel Miami Beach fair. A Dior pop-up shop was open Nov. 28 in the Miami Design District for a three-week run.
Artist Anselm Reyle — known for turning everyday pieces into art objects — the space is a brilliant tangle of bright lights, neon, camouflage, and enough color to have us reminiscing about last summer.
