Haute 5 Places to Shop in South Florida: A Fashion Enthusiast’s Opulent Enchantment

Bal Harbour Shops
Perhaps one of Miami’s most elegant shopping malls, Bal Harbour Shops is famous for its gardens and beautifully decorated stores and boutiques. Brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Lacoste, and Diane Von Furstenburg will make you run out of the door for that always necessary retail therapy session. We can assure you that this elegant oasis-like mall with stores like Cesare Paciotti are definitely worth your while. “This holiday season Cesare Paciotti shoppers are drawn to interesting detailing, bold statement pieces and colors, and versatile looks that can make an outfit pop, either day or night,” says Cesare Paciotti’s store manager, Scott Handler. “Must-haves include double platform electric blue stilettos (a favorite of Beyonce!) and silver tweed studded rocker bootie (loved by Blake Lively). Unique printed leather lace-ups (Justin Timberlake is a fan) and tan loafers are a big hit for any man looking for classic styles with a sharp twist that add edge and style.”
