Sure, there were plenty of floods--so many, in fact, that it took us an hour to get to the beach because of road closures. But that didn't keep us (or many others) from turning up in droves, rocking stilettos that surely sank in the sand.
The opening night party, hosted by Roxy Pop Surf, had a decent crowd: a mixture of fashion bloggers, reality TV wannabees, fashion designers, big whigs and the occasional lost South Beach tourist. (Think: Grandmas rocking capris and flip-flops.)
With three cocktails to choose from--a watermelon cooler, the rockette, and a moscow mule--attendees seemed more united than ever. Commiserating about the nonstop rain, perhaps? About making the rookie mistake of rocking 6-inch heels in what turned out to be quicksand-style flooring? No Matter. Celebrity DJ Chelsea Leyland was on the decks.
