Celebrate the 20s and Wish Coral Gables A Stylish 90th Birthday!

By Patricia Guarch Wise, www.miaminicemag.com

If you’ve seen the Advanced Style documentary or read the blog, you know that getting old doesn’t mean you have to be any less stylish. Case in point, Coral Gables is 90 years old this year and still stylish!

Come out on November 15th from 6-9 PM and wish Coral Gables a happy birthday with a very fun event for the fashionable community. The Iconic Fashion Walk + Shop is an event to pay tribute to the fashion scene of 1925, the year Coral Gables was founded. You know what that means, get out your Gatsby gear and stock up on some Prohibition era duds!

Walk around the Gables and pop into boutiques where local fashion bloggers will be hosting mini-events. Expect Annie Vazquez of The Fashion Poet, Evelyn Torres of Brickellista Files and Rebecca Fernandez of The City Slicker blog to be dressed in the likeness of important figures of the 20s like Coco Chanel, Bette Davis and Greta Garbo. Participting boutiques include Bloom, Cattiva, Dominique, Emporium, Essence, Flirt & Flutter, ISA Boutique, J. Del Olmo Bridal, Jae’s Jewelers, Peace Love World and more.

The 1920s are known as the time when today’s idea of modern fashion was born. Women hiked up their hemlines, cut their hair and even began wearing athletic clothing. Just think, without the 20s we wouldn’t have the at leisure-trend, the lob or boyfriend jeans. Let’s pay tribute to one of the greatest decades of fashion and the greatest city around!
