WHERE TO SHOP: Bal Harbour Shops has everything you need to keep your wardrobe fresh and stylish with anchor stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Take a trip to the Sawgrass Mills Mall if you’re in the mood to get Valentino, Prada, Armani, Zegna or Burberry without having to break the bank. Pinta: The Latin American Art Show, The MOCA, LAAM at Gary Nader Art Center, and Design Miami.
WHERE TO PARTY: That is a difficult decision, considering Miami is known for being the second-biggest clubbing city (just after Vegas) in the U.S. So pack some sexy and glam clothes and head to Story, Wall at W, Liv at Fontainebleau, Le Baron at FDR Delano, or 1 OAK and Up & Down at Rec Room. Then take the after-after-party to E11EVEN or House Nightclub...enough said.
