Beverly Hills has Rodeo Drive, Palm Beach has Worth Avenue and Miami has Bal Harbour Shops. This is the top destination to shop couture in an exotic tropical garden setting with lush vegetation, beautiful fountains, and abundant blooming orchids and bromeliads. Visitors of all ages dress to impress and have a grand time shopping, dining and strolling the lavishly appointed multi-level destination.
I wondered into the elegant Valentino Boutique. I was amazed at the abundance of flowers, especially the roses, which were incorporated into all of their most au courant styles. As a horticulturist I am a lover of all things garden inspired. Apparently flowers are Valentino’s signature, and from the sexiest stiletto shoes to the structured handbag to a sweet little one-shouldered top, the master manages to hit the best of the trends while still maintaining elegance and sophistication. Bravo Valentino!. You know what the international crowds who flock to the Bal Harbour shops love.
