MY STYLE: Lady



As a self-proclaimed fashionista, I must admit that I do not always follow fashion rules, trends, fashion history etc., which leads me to say that I never did quite understand the rule, 'No White After Labour Day'. I eventually got around the researching the rule and while I now understand its origin and on-going tradition, I can't promise that I will adhere it. 

The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you- Coco Chanel

I LOVE white. I've repeated it in several blog posts but I really, really do. White is so pure, so classy, so lady-like, so fresh, so crisp. Whenever I wear full white, especially a dress, I feel so royal.

MY STYLE: Tulle & Lace




From time to time, I'll go through the gallery of blog photos I have taken over time and sometimes I stumble upon outfits that were never posted. I first debuted this tulle maxi skirt here and it is one of my favourite looks. 






I first saw this statement necklace on Kela of Kela's Kloset when we met at the Style Bloggers of  Color Conference in Miami in 2013. I instantly fell in love with it and was on the hunt ever since. I just had to have it. Totally swooning!

MY STYLE: White Knot



I LOVE white. There are no two ways about it; I just do. Once again, I stepped a little outside my comfort zone and I'm not quite sure if it's comfort zone or modest zone. I'm a modest dresser. I haven't always been but I grew in to it. When I was much younger, I had a navel piercing so I would take any and every opportunity to show my piercing and tummy. Nowadays, I prefer to leave a lot to the imagination ;)


White was a huge hit on the catwalk this Summer and rightly so, it's the most practical shade for the scorching temperatures this season. 



Grecian braids are also trending heavily right now so I decided I'd try one on my locs and I love how it turned out. Do you?

MY STYLE:: Cool blue



Sandy beaches, warm sunshine, crystal blue water and palm trees are just a few blessings that I can enjoy any day of the year because I live on one of the most beautiful Caribbean islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. For many others around the world, they're slowly packing away their summer clothes and preparing for the Fall. I love the Fall and wish that we experienced that season here in the Caribbean but instead, Summer days last forever :)

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

Hi Dolls,

I know I've been quiet with my posts lately but that's because I recently joined the AfroNoire team as a Features Writer responsible for the Caribbean region (eek!) It is no secret that the Caribbean is often overlooked when it comes to style and fashion, when in fact we are trendsetters in our own right! Joining the AfroNoire team has created a platform for me to 'educate' the wider social media and fashion community about all things beauty, fashion,, lifestyle Caribbean. Although not fully confirmed, the Caribbean is said to have about 100 inhabited islands and is home to approximately 40 million people, so I am more than excited to be tasked with the responsibility of sharing it with the world. 

Please follow AfroNoire on Twitter @afronoire | Facebook | and their online magazine Afronoire

With all of that being said, my first article has been featured today on AfroNoire here. Please enjoy the read and share any feedback you may have. 

About AfroNoire: AfroNoire is a UK-Based Lifestyle Publication for Interested Black Women. Launched in 2013, AFRONOIRE operate with the intent of fulfilling the social responsibility of positively influencing how African-Caribbean women are represented in the media and society as it sets the standards for the 21st century fierce, stylish, unapologetic and creative black woman.

MY STYLE: Melon Burst



It is no secret that I am smitten by full midi skirts. They are so lady-like, elegant and versatile. I tend to dress them up but may experiment with dressing them down as I've seen many style bloggers do. I just don't know how to #turndown outfits though. LOL! 

It just so happened that I paired the coral and purple together before noticing that I had shoes with the same exact colors. I loved how everything just came together.
