Store away your New York, Paris and LA paraphernalia, because local jewelry label TAudrey has just released a series of super cute, golden-hued gems that straight up rep our own #305. The brand's latest collection, Lil Miss Miami, is completely Magic City themed, with six golden-hued pieces that represent Miami neighborhoods and streets, from Miracle Mile to South of Fifth.
It's what happens when two Miami gals put their BFF bracelets together. Tiffany Ortiz, the designer behind the brand, and Annie Vazquez, the blogger behind The Fashion Poet, collaborated to produce the collection, choosing icons like flamingos, sunglasses, palm trees and a #305 hashtag to carry the Miami theme through. At the end of the day though, Mia Vazquez, the 8-year-old blogger behind The Petite Poet had the final say on what went.
"I see people always making NYC and LA stuff and I was waiting for someone to come out with a Miami line. It never happened so I decided, I'm gonna do it myself. So I approached Tiffany with my ideas for pieces," said Annie. The line will launch on July 19 during Miami Swim Week, however they're up for pre-sale now. A second collection may be in the works but, says Annie, "it will be for Fall and you can bet I'm doing a Westchester piece."
