Designer Mara Hoffman always brings Mercedes Benz Fashion Week up a notch in Miami. If it has been said (we said it ourselves) that Miami is like New York City at the Beach, then you will see that Mara Hoffman brings it home with her Resort Fashion Show in the Tents at the Raleigh Hotel. She has the New York Style but her feet are firmly planted in the Southwest (hence the boots). With big hair embedded with tiny braids and baby doll eyes, cowboy boots and tribal prints, this was a show for the Soho Chic Girls or LA Babes that Do it Their Way: relaxed and casual but still manage to look enviably cool. The jewelry was big and bangly. You know those giant hoops and chunky bracelets. We love the way the coverups hang in the back, cinched and pulled up tight, then hanging down loos to reveal tan skin. That skin stays sweet with the Hawaiian Tropic‘s moisturizer (in luscious tropical scent) that was in Mara Hoffman bags on the chairs. Our favorite look was the cropped beaded caftan with bikini bottom. We love the way Mara Hoffman makes looking chic so easy-breezy. And we are seriously in love with her Oh-so-Stylish Beach Bag. The 70s never were this cool.
