Stiltsville Party

Wow, I had a fun weekend! Friday night, Amy, Lori and I headed to Club 50 at the Viceroy Hotel for a Strike Out Cancer party that our friend Jamie was organizing. Over 300 people came out to support the young philanthropists of the Sylvester Cancer Center. A dangerously delicious cocktail called Annie's something was the cause of many hangovers the next day I am sure. You could not taste any alcohol!

Saturday was the year end party for Beaux Arts at Stiltsville. Imagine 7 wood houses on stilts in the middle of Biscayne Bay. Our friends are part owners of the biggest party house of them all and everyone came on their boats for our fiesta. The weather was perfect and so many members and their husbands showed up.

We had Shorty's BBQ catering and BYOB alcohol..makes for a interesting party. My friend Nikki (above with the crocheted sweater...I kept calling her "Joseph" with her amazing technicolor dreamcoat) and her husband brought a cooler of Goombay punch. My Coronoa light didn't seem so exciting, even with limes cut up, so I switched and she was gracious enough to share. Talk about a dangerous cocktail!

Some people stayed on their boats...

Of course, inevitably, the party lead to jumping off the railing and into the water. So fun but it made me nervous and I couldn't watch!

All in all, a terrific party and a great way to celebrate the end of the year and all the work we do for the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami.

Sunday, I treated myself to a facial at The Standard and got a lenghthy lecture about my skin and using products from different lines. I just sat there and listened to her lecturing me...I had been taking Tazorac, a modern Retin-A of sorts but you CANNOT get sun on your face while taking the medication. I have a summer of beach plans and am so torn about what to do. So, I stopped taking it, but now am just going to start again and be relentless with sunscreen. I really wish the sun wasn't so bad for you..everyone looks better with a tan!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend..summer is just around the corner! xo

Stiltsville is so neat! I was in Florida this New Years on our friend's boat and we drove by. It must have been such fun to attend a party there!
