Homeward Bound

So I'm leaving Miami today after two sun-soaked weeks... It was nice to get away for a while but I have to say I'll be glad to be back in gritty, shitty London town. No matter how much I enjoy a holiday, my body always seems to breathe a subconscious sigh of relief once I inhale that filthy London air.

Anyway. Miami was, as always, a delight. I did my usual lazy/forgetful thing of not taking pictures 95% of the time but it was mostly the usual holiday shenanigans of sunbathing, swimming, eating, drinking, sleeping (repeat to fade). A few of the moments I did manage to capture:

Saw a great exhibition called 'Art and Rock and Roll: Sympathy for the Devil since 1967' at the North Miami Museum of Contemporary Art. Any Miamian ATCN readers out there? Go check it out!







As always, copious amounts of shoe-shopping went down....



The Spiz'ikes were copped, as were these heels which go with nothing I own but were nonetheless as essential purchase: Sink or Swim? (Don't watch the weird position of my feet, went to great efforts to showcase these to their full effect)

Encountered this young lady roaming through a club, apparently advertising cigarettes?!?!
Only in America...


Witnessed some Voodoo shit in the form of this chicken carcass strategically placed on the corner of my block (with a white chicken left on the other corner). Nice.


Spent a lot of time hanging round in the lobby of the Shore Club hotel. Who knew men could take so long to get ready?

Had one of the best dining experiences of my life at a hidden gem called 'Casa Tua'. Maaaaaad expensive but definitely worth it (If you're not footing the bill, of course)

Big up the London massive that took over Miami last week! Hope you all had a good one.

Right, I'm off to try and work out how I'm gonna fit an extra five pairs of shoes in a suitcase which already refuses to close. Wish me luck!

who paid for your dinner Reg or Vis..? lol either one and your a lucky girl

Phoebe said...

Haha so many questions!

@ Anonymous: No idea why there were so many Londoners in Miami, but I barely heard an American accent the whole time I was there! Very strange...

@ illmaticbbcmodel: Can't remember the name of the shop Vis was in, just a random sports shop at the end of Lincoln Road with a decent selection of sneakers. The real gem was the new boutique Air Traffic Control on 16th St where I found the Spiz'ikes. Big up Reg for discovering that one!

@Tanone: The 'lady' is me, and I found the Spiz'ikes at ATC, the shop mentioned above. Think I nabbed the last pair tho!

@Anonymous: Neither!

If you're heading to the M.I.A aka "a sunny place for shadi people", definetly head over to ATC on 16th between collins & washington. I just copped me a pair of one time only's. They re-up often, so no matter when you go, they'll always have something you need to own. Everytime I go, I feel like a fat kid at a candy store. This store is definetly for the sneaker connoisseur, not for the novice.
P.S~I asked about the Sp'zikes, they have several pairs left. So now you know where all you sneaker feens could get your fix!! : )
