For those following along, two weeks ago I spent a good amount of time in Miami, partying it up with our fellow fashionites at Art Basel. Today, I’m reliving my shopping adventure through Bal Harbour shops, a luxury destination for well tanned ladies with cash to spend. I lust after Chanel platforms, a Stella body suit, and McQueen after the jump.

In another addition of Beca’s Best Dressed List, I gather my fave looks from around the blogosphere including Scent of Obsession and Karla’s Closet.
Kanye West’s latest attempt in women’s footwear design is coinciding with the release of his latest mix tape Cruel Summer. The rapper has teamed up with designer shoe label Giuseppe Zanotti to create a pair of white heels inspired by his album artwork.
When it comes to luxury, Barney’s New York just does it right. Today marks the opening of their new co-ed, 22,000 square foot designer shoe floor (the only one of its kind in America) and launches their marriage equality campaign “Perfect Pairs.”
Mother Monster said we’d all be wearing it in her video for Marry the Night. We’ve seen it everywhere this spring from the runways to the streets.

We were so pleased when The Artist won the Academy Award for Best Picture at last night’s Oscars, the first silent film to take the title since 1929. We are in love with the costume design, which also won a coveted golden statue for being the best. If you’re looking to channel Peppy Miller‘s chic flapper style, we have you covered in our Look of the Day.
The 2012 Oscar Nominations were released today, and, as usual, I’m half way to underwhelmed. But then I began to think of the red carpet and all the praising and bashing opportunities it will bring. And since our invitations here at FashionIndie always seem to get lost in the mail, I took the liberty of putting together a 2012 Academy Awards outfit for myself. Love it or hate it in the Look of the Day.
Kanye West fell into a Twitter K-hole late last night, delivering a tweet-de-force when he addressed the Dw account that had appeared on the site a few days prior and which, it turns out, was fake. And once that was settled, we wandered into some strange territory.
