Can you believe that in my four years of blogging I had never taken outfit pics in front of a Wynwood wall?? Blasphemy! And I call myself a Miami blogger. Pfft.
Thing is, I don't hang out much in the Midtown/Wynwood/Design District area (unless it's for work). This dramatically gentrified neighborhood, with all its overpriced shops and restaurants, is all the rage for tourists and locals alike, but to me it still feels mostly inauthentic. None of that stuff was there 15, even 10 years ago. It just boggles my mind still. But alas, it's the same old story we're seeing in cities across America and the world. Gentrification. Urban displacement. Shoving poverty under the rug.
I do love the street art though. I'm lucky to live in a place where some of the most renowned street artists of our time leave their marks on our walls for all to see. This is one of those walls, which belongs The Wynwood Building, which you will surely recognize because it is everywhere (like with Camila here or Keiko and Bobby here). All these photos were taken by Marion of the Miaritz blog. It was great fun!
