Full disclosure: When Refinery29 first launched in Miami, we simply knew we had to get Annie Vazquez on our side. When it comes to Miami style, breaking fashion news, and coverage with just a hint of caliente, no one is more of an authority than this scribe. And nobody seems to be busier either; besides being a whip-smart R29 contributor, Annie helms her own blog, The Fashion Poet, in addition to hosting velvet-rope events like Fashion Bloggers Do It Better and this past weekend's ultra-popular District Factory pop-up.
On top of all that, she's a staunch, die-hard, and enthusiastic advocate of local Miami design, using her blog to promote the emerging brands she expertly spies. Oh, and in case you hadn't noticed, Annie is absolutely gorgeous—a Cuban-American stunner whose blog proves again and again that our local aesthetic is part chispa, part gutsy gusto, and a whole lotta, erm, poetry.
Get the scoop on one of Miami's best-dressed gals, and find out how she keeps her finger on the fashion-forward pulse of the 305.
