Not sure what I love more the house or the chairs. 
The iconic “Hardoy Chair 198″, aka The Butterfly Chair, The BKF Chair, whatever you want to call it, was designed by Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy in 1938. It was produced by Knoll but they dropped it from their line when they lost the legal battle against all the copies that were being reproduced. Image via here.

Lots of good basics on sale at the Madewell on Lincoln Road.

I've already mentioned Hy Vong for Vietnamese food in Miami, but this weekend we had Miss Saigon, and its definitely one to keep in mind, especially since they have two locations, and Hy Vong has unpredictable hours.

I remember cutting out 90s Versace ads and pasting them all over my closet doors when I was in 6th grade. Versace was the king of over-the-top perfection and very reflective of Miami in that era.
