By the time I finally got to meet Aerin Lauder, she'd had a day.
The NYC/Palm Beach resident and socialite had journeyed to Miami—always an adventure in itself—and was just wrapping-up a cocktail event celebrating the opening of the fourth retail location of her eponymous lifestyle brand, AERIN. Grabbing a cute new pair of espadrilles from the stockroom, she was dashing out the door, but was gracious enough to spend a moment with me. I must say Aerin was also very sweet... and maybe even a little appreciative... when I took it upon myself to tame her slightly tousled hair before we took our picture together.
Weeks earlier, I'd attended the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation's (ADDF) illustrious "Hope on the Horizon" dinner on Palm Beach, where Aerin and her sister Jane were receiving a prestigious honor for their leadership and actitivism. Unfortunately at the last minute, Aerin was unable to attend being that her husband was recovering from a recent skiing accident (she assured me he's fine now!)
So, when I heard she was coming to Florida to celebrate the opening of AERIN at the Miami Design District, I seized the opportunity to meet the granddaughter of cosmetics legend Estée Lauder; Aerin Lauder not only serves as Style and Creative Director of the Estée Lauder Companies, but is also Founder and Creative Director of her own hugely successful company.
AERIN is known for its casual chic home decor as well as a curated assortment of beauty products, fashions and more... all bearing Aerin's stamp of relaxed elegance.

Each AERIN location is thoughtfully tailored to the character and lifestyle of the local community... this one included. “I have always loved Miami’s sense of vibrancy, color, style, and tropical influence," says Aerin. "I think that Miami was a natural next step." She also expresses that "this exclusive AERIN Miami edit is perfect for sunshine-filled days and magical Miami nights.”
