What is one item EVERY island girl needs in her closet?….A BATHING SUIT of course!
My personal collection has been growing thanks to Shawna Brown owner of the online bathing suit boutique Beach Bottom Girls. I had the pleasure of interviewing Shawna about the company.
I began the year celebrating with family in Portland.
Portland is one of my favourite parishes because of its natural beauty, elegant but laid back vibe.
Whenever I see an item that is unique I seem to lose my senses. That was exactly what happened to me when I saw the Peta Rabbit bag by Vincentian designer Peta Odini.
I was casually browsing Instagram a few months ago and stumbled upon a post by the Trinidadian boutique Exhibit A. I literally stopped in my tracks when I saw the Peta Rabbit bag!!!
My first thought was how I could get this bag!
Rotary Installation seasons lately have required me to become rather creative. Ever since I became a member, I found that myself accumulating semi formal dresses that I only wore once or twice before having to give them away. Last season, I decided not to buy any new dresses but instead to mix & match pieces I already own.
Last October, I had the pleasure of helping out at the Rotaract District 7020 PETS Training Seminar held at the University of the West Indies. After the training seminar my friend Nicole & I headed to Jamaica College to watch a Manning Cup Match (A local High School Football/Soccer Tournament).
It’s funny how sometimes the simplest pieces can come together to make a really cute outfit.
I think the oversize fedora gave the simple look a very chic low key boho vibe & the yellow & black bag a pop of colour.
I really love how all these pieces came together & somehow worked.
It’s been awhile since I did an outfit post. I wore this look in January but I am still so in love with it that I decided to share it.
I dubbed it Camo Chic because the military jacket was definitely the star of the show. I know that there are a few countries that ban the wearing of camouflage; the beauty of this look is that it is laid back so the military jacket can easily be substituted with another statement jacket.
I got inspired to do this DIY from Instagram. I was looking through Carnival pictures and came across a very creative young lady who transformed her T-shirt into a romper. So I thought maybe I could experiment with the idea but instead of a romper, I made a body suit from a T-shirt!
Today’s post is a very simple & fun DIY project.
I decided to up-cycle two pairs of jeans I had lying around my room.
Awhile back some friends and I went to the beautiful Hope Gardens to shoot a video. I was so inspired by the beauty of the gardens that I decided to have a little mini shoot of my own.
My outfit was inspired by an Eiffel tower charm from a necklace my Mom gave me. The focus of the outfit was a black and white stripped graphic t-shirt with a key hole cutout in the back. I paired the top with a straight black skirt with thigh high splits on each side. I wore sandals instead of flats (my Caribbean flavour) & finished the look with bright red lips & the necklace that inspired the entire look & voila!
On Saturday, May 24, 2014, my service club hosted a fundraising party called “EVOKE”. This was the fourth staging of the event and the second staging under the name “EVOKE”. This year’s theme was the “Braids N Bumpa.”
