Cayman Islands Fashion Week 2014- Makeup Segment

Cayman Islands Fashion Week just wrapped up its 4th year of fashion and style. The week long event featured an exciting line up of international, local and regional designers and models for an extended week of style, fashion and glamour. I had the amazing opportunity to work alongside Stephanie Ford-Ramoon and celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff on the various shows.

Luckily for me, I was finally able to get a few images of my work to share with you as I usually struggle to get images of my work from photographers.

MY LIFE: Happy (Belated) Birthday....

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have known that I recently celebrated another birthday on Thursday, April 24th. For my birthday, I wanted to do something a little special just for me. Because I'm not a big party girl (anymore), I didn't have a party or anything but simply enjoyed some pampering time and a photoshoot. 

Surprise birthday unexpected but my favourite--calla lilies!

Of course a selfie

MY STYLE:: Black Friday (The Power of Black)

Happy Friday beauties! It's finally the weekend. Hope you make it a fantastic one. I have so much going on this weekend but I am not complaining. Keeping busy with things that I enjoy is quite fine by me. Hopefully I will find a minute or two to catch up on some much needed rest though.

How cute are these lace shorts? I first went public in shorts in my style post Fearfully Bold, but today's look has more of a 'powerhouse' feel. There is something powerful and empowering about all black. To break up the black just a bit, I added my multi-coloured ankle strap pumps.

MY STYLE: Spotted with Love (Red)

HAPPY EASTER!!!! Jesus Christ is risen. It is Easter Sunday and like many people, I went to church today (as I usually do). How did you spend your Easter Sunday?

You know how much I absolutely love full, flared skirts. I first debuted this custom-made skirt in this post for Valentine's Day. I only ever wear dresses or skirts to church because 1- that's how I was raised and 2- somehow (maybe because of point 1), it feels rather odd wearing pants to church. 

I love how this skirt flows. I really do. It is actually the most voluminous skirt I own.

MY STYLE: Spring Brights (Purple Maxi Skirt + Green Blouse)

HAPPY EASTER lovies! Hope you're enjoying the 3-4 day weekend and making the very best of it. Here in the Cayman Islands, we have a 4-day weekend so I am living it up! In another post, I'll probably share a few pictures of how it was spent. It's  Caymanian tradition to camp (literally pitch tents) in various places around the island, but mainly on beaches during the Easter break but errr, that's not for me. Tonight is also the launch party for the 4th annual Cayman Islands Fashion Week so there's an exciting week ahead.

Enough about the weekend, let's get on to the outfit. I was completely overjoyed when I recently found this pleated, purple maxi skirt. When I first saw it on Blaire (Atlantic Pacific) and Folake (Style Pantry), I just knew that I wanted the same shade of purple. I even went as far as purchasing chiffon fabric to attempt making the skirt myself which was a fail (Mimi G to the rescue!!) At any rate, here I am, almost a year later in this maxi skirt. The colour combination was another inspiration from StylePantry. Btw, it was a 'one size fits all' fit but in the world of size 00, 0, XS, S, one size does NOT always fit all so I had to adjust the waist.

FASHION FEATURE: Fashion Bombshell of the Day!!

Yay me! Today I was featured as the 'Fashion Bombshell of the Day' on Fashion Bomb Daily (see feature here). I don't consider my style to be overly special but today, Claire of Fashion Bomb Daily felt that it was special enough to be featured.

INSPIRED STYLE: Simply Striped

From time to time, some of my favourite fashion/ style bloggers will post looks that send me dashing to my closet to throw something together to re-create their look, adding my own spin of course. This isn't to say that I run out of ideas but simply that these bloggers and I share the same or similar wardrobe pieces. When I saw Sindy's Post- Red Alert, I quickly grabbed for my striped blazer and ran out the door for a quick shoot. Sindy and I have never officially met in person but somehow, we have gravitated towards each other and cheer each other on as if we've known each other forever. The power of technology can be such a beautiful thing sometimes. 

Thanks for the look Sindy. You added more pops of red to your outfit but I left it at the shoes :)
