DEBRA TORRES AT VIZCAYA

While on our recent marvelous Miami retreat, I just had to pry myself away from the pool for a bit of tropical splendor. Vizcaya was calling me! I hadn’t been for years and years and I was quite curious to see the restored gardens. Diego Suarez’s exuberant garden – designed for James Deering – is absolute heaven. There you’ll find an abundance of architectural structures and details, elaborate fountains, and antique and commissioned sculptures.

The use of aged sculptures and of soft porous coral stone resulted, quite intentionally, in a weathered appearance that along with planting of mature trees immediately lent a feeling of a garden that had been there for many years.

Vizcaya is one of those places one never tires of – I could return again and again and never get enough. It’s a must-see in Miami.

With a merging of Latin chic and Caribbean glamor, my exquisite friend Debra Torres’ gorgeous guayabera shirts were the most perfect choice for the elegant tropical setting of Vizcaya (top). The “David” model is my favorite and can be ordered in a slim fit for a more tailored look. The shirt goes perfectly with a pair of linen chambray shorts and royal blue suede espadrilles. I’m also wearing Tom Ford matte dark blue “Sergio” sunglasses. A spritz of Tom Ford Mandarino di Amalfi completes the look.
