Last month we signed on to become contributing writers for The New Tropic, a forum by Miami-ans that uses journalism and events to help locals connect with our beautiful city. For our second assignment, we interviewed fellow Miami enthusiast and owner of South of Fifth boutique Roses and Dreams, Valérie Engel. Valérie's story is a case study of how following your dreams, no matter how big, can really pay off. We hope that you are as inspired by her journey as we are. To read her fashion spotlight, read the excerpt below and click on the photo for the full feature.
What inspires you most about Valérie? What Miami fashion luminaries would you like to see featured in future iterations of The New Tropic's Miami Fashion Spotlight? What other topics would you like to see us cover for The New Tropic? Leave a comment below or send us a tweet @ThankYouMiami!
