Erin Newberg, Board member at National YoungArts Foundation, stylist and blogger: "My favorite neighborhood to shop in, is in Palm Beach. Dina C's Fab and Funky has the most REDIC assortment of fashions from so many era's and they get great pieces of YSL, which I collect and DIE for."
Julia Ford-Carther, Assistant Editor of Ocean Drive Magazine: "Narrowing it down to one 'hood would be tough, but I will say I've been spending more time in Mid-Beach— is that bowling alley at The Edition not the most fun?— and always pop into the new Wanderlista boutique at Hotel Croydon. Every time I go in, owner Andria Mitsakos has something fierce and exclusive for me, from a white fringe Dea Rosa clutch to fine jewelry from Greek designer Elena Syraka (only available in the US at this store); futuristic shades from Will I Am's ill.i Optics (only available in Miami at this shop); and, designer vintage, no less."
John Joseph Lin, Founder of Lin Projects and Blogger: "I don't have a favorite neighborhood per se to shop in, but I do love the Webster for its carefully curated pieces and unique collaborations, and the Alchemist for its selection of hard to find pieces."
Iman Hasan, Fashion and Lifestyle Director at The Workshop Collective: "Wynwood without a doubt. It's quirky, fashion forward and unique. Favorite store is by far MVM Miami. It's the coolest contemporary womenswear boutique in town."
Rachael Russell, FORD Fashion Stylist and President of Style Saves: "I really love to shop in Wynwood these days. There's a boutique called MVM, which has everything a girl could want and Style Mafia of course. "
Sari Azout, Co-Founder of Bib + Tuck: "Bal Harbour; it has all my favorite stores in one place, Rag & Bone and Maje recently opened, and it's also across the street from my house! It's such a glamorous spot and lifestyle destination - and the people watching is delicious!"
Angeles Almuna, Fashion Stylist and Blogger: "Well, I have a couples places. One is Miami Design District if my pocket gives me the chance to do it! Where? DelPozo and EnAvance. I always love to have a treasure adventure at Flamingo Park, Hialeah, where you can find the best thrift stores in Miami."
Jonathan Eyal, Founder of Supply & Advise: "Currently, Miami is still lacking any cohesive neighborhood where you could spend an entire Sunday poking around shops and getting inspired... unless Bal Harbour Shops counts as a neighborhood."
Ashley Liemer, Founder of Dress Noble: "I have to be honest I'm not a huge shopper. However, I do love to splurge at the shoe salon at Bergdorf's [in New York] or Shoe Gallery."
