Sandra Granger’s tastefully sleeveless style

I love Sandra Granger’s style! And I honestly thought that with her rocking all those sleeveless dresses as First Lady, we would have seen a shift in the archaic rules we still have in Guyana when it comes to dress codes in a majority of public offices.

Christmas wish list

Christmas is almost here. It is the time of year that I believe consumers spend the most willingly, without feeling too guilty about it, or at least I do.

Feeding the fashion greed

Who doesn’t like a sale? I personally fancy a good bargain and getting constantly bombarded by emails on a daily basis to notify me on sales and flash discounts.

Not investing

Of recent, I find myself being drawn towards buying the impractical and cute as opposed to the necessary and basic.

Our Danish wedding

It has been approximately one month since I have been in Belgium and exactly one week since I tied the knot with my partner of four years.

Trending locally

From That Look Boutique’s last editorial featuring Lieve Blanckaert and Kimberly Niles, I decided to select the trends that I thought were cute and questionable.

Swinging 70s

I was browsing YouTube the other day and came across a video of H&M promoting the notion of re-fashioning and re-wearing the clothes in your wardrobe.

Regional political style

It was Miuccia Prada who said fashion is an instant language. While some may beg to differ, I personally believe politicians and women married to politicians must learn to master the art of “talking through their clothes” and using it as a channel to communicate their values and beliefs.

Wants and needs

I was in conversation earlier this week with a friend of mine and I was relating to her the frustration of being stylish in a world where fashion has become ‘dog cheap’.

Spice and July trends

Not too many female dancehall artists in the Caribbean have managed to acquire a social media following like Spice and establish stable brand identity.

Granger’s style

It’s been just over a month since the new government has been in power and boy oh boy was I dying to see the wardrobe of the new President!

The ‘Granny’ dress

‘Summer’ buys

We have become fixated with using the word “summer” for the months July and August and having adapted the season terminology, we also take everything that comes with it.
