Dash of Panache Blog is a bi-coastal fashion + lifestyle blog based in Miami, FL and Los Angeles, CA. I created Dash of Panache Blog as a creative outlet to express my inspirations, personal style and love for all things beautiful. Here you will find little bits and pieces of my favorite things in life- from fashion and interior design to travel and lifestyle. My hope is to have this be a space for people to gain inspiration to create something beautiful of their own- all centered on positivity and love with a little dash of panache.

Q: What is your MICHELE story?

A: Back in high school/college, one of my first jobs was working retail, and being exposed to brands nonstop, I started to appreciate subtle differences in design, especially with watches. I remember seeing this one particular watch that jumped out at me, yet I was never able to see the exact brand. Until one day my eye caught the MICHELE case, and I saw the watch-the Deco Diamond-and immediately fell in love with all of the MICHELE watches. Right then and there, I decided I would save part of my paycheck every month until I had enough to buy my own MICHELE watch and I have never looked back!

Q: Why did you choose the Deco?

A: I knew that it was important to invest in a classic piece that I could wear every day. I love the fact that the style allows me to wear it with jeans and a t-shirt during the day, yet still have that sense of elegance when I pair it with a pretty dress and heels at night.

Q: What do you love best about your MICHELE?

A: My MICHELE watch reminds me the importance of setting goals, and rewarding yourself when you achieve them. I love that it was the first investment piece that I bought myself, and as a strong, independent woman, that's a powerful fact I'll always wear with me. This watch has traveled the world with me, and no matter what, this watch will always be my first.
