Miami Fashion Week: Day 2, Much Better

jlo.jpgWhat a difference a day makes! After a dismal opening show Wednesday at the Carnival Center, Miami Fashion Week finally hit its stride Thursday night, with the JLo show. On display were simple yet adorable clothes aimed at the late-teens/early-20’s woman, with high hems and bright colors throughout. The line featured a lot of knits, creating a nice body-hugging look; they also used denim for several pieces, although that wasn’t as exciting a result. No matter, the clothes were interesting and cute. The picture here doesn’t do the show justice.

Granted, her show came after some shaky entries: swimwear designer Luli Fama showed cute-but-uninspired designs, and a string of eveningwear from various South American labels paraded down the runway all looking the same. But just as things were starting to look dim, Mrs. Marc Anthony stepped in and saved the day.

Actually, it’s quite clear Jennifer Lopez has very little, if anything at all, to do with the design of the clothes–she wasn’t even at the show–but that’s probably for the best. Everything was beautifully constructed and tastefully displayed. The audience even got free sunglasses in their giftbags. Thanks Jen! And no, that green Versace dress that La Lopez wore to show off all her goodies was nowhere to be found. Thankfully.

    I can sympathize since I have no insurance either; however, I am grateful that my brother is an ER doctor. Although I am not sure how far Miami Beach is from 142nd St and S Dixie Hwy (US 1) since I am from LA, I do know a great alternative to the over-priced ER and the long lines at the local free clinic-it is called RiteCare Medical Center.

    RiteCare is a walk-in clinic (no appt. necessary) and they promise to evaluate and treat you within 60-minutes. The standard visit is $104 (it’s really $138, but he gives everyone a 25% discount since they just opened)-compared to most walk-in/urgent care clinics and/or hospitals, which can range anywhere from $400-$500 just to see the physician. If you have insurance, they just charge the co-pay.

    The medical director worked at Baptist ER for more than five years and he is all too familar with the eight hour waiting period and hefty bill that would soon follow. He realized that many of the patients did not need to go the ER as they only had minor problems such as ear infections, cuts, minor burns, flu/cold, bladder infections, sprains, fractures, etc-basically, anything that is not life-threatening. So, he decided to venture off on his own and cater to those people. He also acts as a primary physician for those who do not have insurance. It’s quality healthcare at an affordable price.

    I should mention that I am a bit biased as he is also my oldest brother:), but he genuinely cares about his patients…and that is a rarity.

    I just mapquested the distance and it’s about 35 minutes away.

    If this is too far, please feel free to contact the center and maybe he can send you to one of his friends that is closer, but still more affordable than the local hospital or clinic.

    Hope this helps. Best of luck to you.
