I'm Speaking at Hispanicize in Miami!

This week is about to be exciting! Miami is hosting hundreds of fantastic tastemakers and thousands of bloggers in the Latin community during a week of social media, film and TV, culture and lifestyle. Hispanicize, dubbed more of an "event," has over 125 slated speakers touching on subjects that shape, inspire and build our community. While I've not been in the past, I'm excited that my first attendance will be busy speaking on two panels. I'll be talking food on the "Secret Salsa: How to Create Authentic Brand Ambassadorships And Campaigns With Latino Food Bloggers" and "Livin' La Vida Blogger: How Latino Lifestyle Bloggers Are Engaging Their Communities  and Helping Brands Get in On the Fun." 

While I'm not speaking on the fashion panel, I still have to put chic foot forward. Literally. I have a sprained ankle, now going on 5 months, so my shoe rockin' options are limited. But, I can't spend a week in sexy Miami without some fly shoes. It just won't work. So, thanks to my sister, who's is Physical Therapist, has been throwing me into intense treatment. With all hopes in my pocket, I'm relentless in my efforts to wear heel this week. I've given up on skinny or stiletto heels. Platform wedges are it.

I went out last night and found these super high studded black platforms at Bakers and just fell in love. I was in pain after 10 minutes of walking around in the store, no doubt.  I'll reserve them for more swanky engagements, leaving me with at least one more casual pair. We'll see how it goes. If I have to sport an ankle brace with my shoes for protection and stability, I'm fine with it. The sacrifices we make to stay fashionable and in our element (because flats are not for me) are painful sometimes.

I've not done any additional shopping for my trip but my vintage train case full of beautiful jewelry is a sure go! Here are a few shots of what it looks like. Major editing needed. As it stands, it weighs 20 pounds. I'm thinking 5 will be enough for 7 days!

Stay in touch for fashionable looks from muy sexy Miami! It's set to be glamorous. See you there!

Happy Sunday!
