Upper Eastside

Things to do in Upper Eastside

This quirky garden that's about the size of a suburban yard is tucked behind the vintage store Divine Trash, and serves as a groovy oasis that recalls the early bohemian days of South Beach.

South Beach was founded on the saving of Art Deco, and now it's Miami Modern's (MiMo) turn. Prime examples of this architectural style line the choice strip of Biscayne Boulevard between NE 50th Street and NE 77th Street, the boundaries of the MiMo/Biscayne Boulevard Historic District.

Italian labels Transit and Dusica Dusica fill this smart white-on-white boutique, with clothes and shoes for men and women. Look for refined items like streamlined sandals made of leather, cashmere, and rabbit fur, which are as comfortable as they are stylish.

The Miami-based fashion designer, whose fans include Gloria Estefan, Paulina Rubio, and Paris Hilton, has opened his own store, an opulent space with an old elevator cage for a changing room.
