About Evelyn Torres and the Blog

 

“Brickellista Files is a place where I share my love of Miami, fashion that inspires me, and my travels.”

Brickellista started as my Twitter alias in August 2009 with the purpose of connecting with the hottest events and best restaurants. I was new to Miami & wanted a way to connect without putting myself “out there.” I’m actually an introvert if you can believe that?!

When I’m not blogging, I’m a marketing ninja at a global firm. I went to business school and focused on expansion strategies into emerging economies – I’m kind of an economics geek! This blog is where I share my adventures, things I am passionate about, and fashion that inspires me.

WHAT IS BRICKELL?

brik-əl – the financial district of Miami’s Downtown area. I like to think of it as a tanner sexier version of the Upper East Side.
