It is not enough that the whirlwind that is Art Basel is soon upon us, but November is THE most social month of the year in Miami, with back-to-back extravaganzas daily! Stylist Elysze Held was back in town to catch but a few! To celebrate Bal Harbour Shops’ 50th anniversary and The Miami Project’s 30th anniversary, Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis and Bal Harbour Shops teamed up again to kick-off Destination Fashion 2016 and the style set turned out at Bal Harbour Shops; both the Annual Make-A-Wish and the 59th Vizcaya Balls proved again this year to be spectacular! The SHOP to STOP MS event dinner at Peace, Love World Boutique and subsequent event at Saks Dadeland and The Women of Tomorrow Inaugural Rose Luncheon at Soho House were remarkable charity soirees, and the Tom Ford Miami Boutique Opening in the Design District was as elegant as one would expect from a master of style, Mr. Ford.
