In Miami, it's always hot. You might run into the occasional two-week stint in February of a biting 59-degree wind-chill, but for the most part, it teeter-totters somewhere between 79.9 and 180-degrees. Indeed, we are a blessed state, and because of our endless summers, Wynwood Life will be throwing a three-day fashion party appropriately titled "Perpetual Summer."
The event kicks off Friday in Miami's Toontown, AKA Wynwood, where hipsters will bedash NW Sixth Ave. to pay host to Kelly Saks from Kelly's Kloset, a visit at the Peroni Fashion Lounge. The Miami fashion-blogger-turned-oracle will be there to coax the woes of your most daunting fashion concerns with a style advice segment.
Come Saturday at noon, Saks passes the baton to The Fashion Poet's Annie Vazquez. She, alongside Italian brewery, Peroni, encourage that you arrive "undone" to Saturday's Style Lounge. The reason: A beauty bar awaits those prone to frizz, under-eye curtains, and major caterpillar-brows. It's time to exterminate those bad boys.
First, tame the burly likes of that rats' nest atop your head at the Blow-N-Dry Lounge. Next, stop competing with Kevin from the Backstreet Boys and give those brows a little arch with Lucy B. Brows. Topping off the pamper-fest, Charlene B. Makeup - Vazquez's go-to gal - will be there to transform your "meh" mug to a cover girl dream. Did we mention this was all free?
After your extreme makeover, make your Visa chafe a 'lil at the fleet of pop-up shops, courtesy of your favorite local boutiques. Or, if you're on a strict retail-diet, splurge on something else, like a little R&R and some bevvys back at The Style Lounge.

But perhaps the main event of the weekend belongs to The Sunset Fashion Show, taking place Friday and Saturday night at 7 p.m.
Betsey Johnson-fave Jewels by Dunn, and resort and swimwear line Pretty Beachy will share the 24-foot runway with local boutiques La Belle Rebelle, the Closet Boutique, and the Dressing Room. With so much to offer, we expect it to be a must-see for any fashionista.
