I think Erin Healy won me over when I discovered that her work has been described as a balance between Coco Chanel’s classic aesthetic and Gwen Stefani’s rocker edge. This is clearly a woman after my heart. Her collection last night at Miami Fashion Week’s runway shows displayed an array of patterns and textures all in a variety of black fabrics. Above, I’ve picked the two I absolutely must have now. To get your own pieces from the Florida designer, click here.

Year Two

Today I’m excited to celebrate year two of the blog and all that’s come along with it. When I started Bubbles & Ink, it was nothing more than a hobby – something for my friends and family to see what I was up to. Two years later, I’m so grateful for everyone who’s decided to keep reading and all the amazing opportunities that have come of it.

To celebrate, I rounded up some of my favorite posts from the past couple of years. Just click on the pic and it’ll take you to the original post. I hope you enjoy reminiscing as much as I did. And if there’s something you’d like to see more of, let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear what you’d like to see in year three. Thanks for reading… xxoo




Miami Fashion Bloggers Night Out

After having attended the IFB Con in New York City back in February, I came home feeling the need to find out where all the other Miami bloggers were hanging out. Well, after attending Wednesday’s Fashion Bloggers Night Out event at Neiman Marcus in the Village of Merrick Park, it’s clear that this community may be fledgling but it certainly doesn’t lack for enthusiasm.

With a panel consisting of The Fashion Poet‘s Annie Vazquez, Refinery 29‘s Karla Garcia, Miami.com‘s Maria Tettamanti, Daily Candy‘s Ginger Harris, and Next Model‘s Jenny Lopez, established and amateur bloggers alike got some insight into the efforts behind making it in this city in this covet-able light. And, of course, there was a fashion show.

I, for one, am thrilled at the possibility of a developing blogger community in Miami and am curious to see what kind of impact these established ladies, and those of us trying to figure it out, will make on this curiously transient city. For now, there are pics below and many more on the Facebook. Happy blogging. xo




P.S. A BIG THANK YOU to my BFF, Ms. YHA, for taking time to snap tons of great pics while I snagged some on my phone for my Instagram obsession. 

Miami Fashion Week 2012: Ema Savahl Couture

There’s something to be said about couture and the avant garde. If done right, it can evoke such feelings akin to that of a profound piece of artwork. Another one of my favorites, the delicate intricacies found in Ema Savahl Couture’s collection at Miami Fashion Week were romantic, stunning – simply beautiful. From the subtle blush of nude to the variegated lace, each piece was unique in its exquisite construction.

Miami Fashion Week Teaser

It’s been a long week of shows and emerging designs, each fighting hard to make an impression on a crowd saturated with buyers and stylists. Though there were some collections that could have used some serious editing, for the most part, designers at Miami Beach International Fashion Week put out some memorable pieces – one of whom is shown below.

I have an incredible amount of images to share with you. But today, I leave you with one of my favorites. Art of Shade by Kayce Armstrong, recipient of the highly coveted Designer’s Choice Award at last year’s Fashion Week, returned with EVOLVE, a very well-received collection of “hard edged industry and lofty sails”, for their second appearance at MBIFW.

Check back often – I’ll be posting images from every show we attended. You can also find some daily pics on Facebook. Did any of you make it out to Fashion Week? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Let me know in the comments. Happy Friday!
