I recently stumbled upon the shop, RESPICE – Independent Republic, and was so excited to have found it!  Everywhere I looked was something ultra-cool and then ever better.  Unique and high-quality accessories and lifestyle products from independent designers and brands, RESPICE has a gift for everyone.  I managed to pick up several gifts for myself, one of which being a screw cuff bracelet in rose gold from local designer, Miansai.  I also purchased a beautiful salmon (yes, the fish) skinned clutch.  Apparently it does not wear easily and this new bag of mine has become a perfect accessory.  The welcoming owner, Gisile, opened the doors to RESPICE with her husband in 2013.  Well traveled with a serious knack for fantastic finds, they could not help themselves.  Their great vision was the prefect marriage of passion and livelihood resulting in the conception of RESPICE.  If you are looking for something truly unique and impressive, checking out this shop is a must.  RESPICE received Racked Award’s ‘coolest concept shop’ for 2014.

RESPICE can be found in downtown South Miami across from the Shops of Sunset in the little square.  You’ll want Gisile to be your new bff and you’ll want everything in the store!  If you are not local, shop on-line.


Amazing jewelry, art, eyewear, handbags….you name it and it’s found here but in the coolest one-of-a-kind way.
