The model life dream

During my extremely short-lived tenure as a model for Donna Ramsammy-James when I lived in Guyana, I was always hesitant of highlighting it as something that I did.

Inequality and Fashion

I always find myself being unreasonably nervous during introductions. Not because I don’t like socializing, but rather because I fear judgement based on my likes, interests and passions.

Rihanna dominates

There really isn’t an actress, influencer or singer whose fashion or beauty products I have ever anticipated buying.

Lasting choice

Whenever I am buying shoes, I try to remember the wise words from the Guyanese proverb: ‘When yah like play cheap yah does pay dare,’ that my Godmother always preached to me.

Fearless happiness

Just as prom pictures were about to dominate my Facebook timeline for the next two weeks or so, they were quickly dwarfed by the stories and photos of the recently averted Republic Bank robbery and the Camp Street jailhouse fire respectively.

Going braless

A woman’s connection with her undergarments is a unique one, and this is especially so in the case of many Guyanese women.

Material validation

The memory of the spoken word can last a long time. I can still remember words that were said to me from eight years ago by people I have lost total contact with.

The ready body

The apparent natural path to follow that guarantees a fulfilled life for any woman, according to society’s standards, entails becoming a mother.

Style pickings for 2017

Believe it or not but my wallet hasn’t made way for trends this summer neither have I participated in  the spring cleaning ritual most fashionistas swear by.

There was excitement at seeing Marine Le Pen defeated by the ever-so-hot Emmanuel Macron, who also happens to be 39 (I know), in France’s recently held elections.

In a world where everything as it relates to fashion has become ordinary and lacklustre, the Met Gala is one of the few events that fashion enthusiasts look forward to.

Digital Era Style Part 2

Currently there are about 27 items in my ASOS saved bag. Many online retailers offer the save now, buy later feature which allows the user to bookmark the items for a certain period of time in their accounts.

Digital era style- Part 1

When it comes to authentic personal choice and choosing what we want to wear, sometimes it isn’t as personal as we may perceive it or want it to be.

Dancehall fashion: A closer look

When most people hear of or contemplate on ‘bashment’ music most commonly known as dancehall music, they tend to associate it with violence, vulgarity and uncouthness.

Racial implications

About two weeks ago I read about an incident that took place in Canal Number One Polder, West Bank Demerara which resulted in Dameion Gordon and Vernon Beckles enduring a merciless beating and verbal abuse (inclusive of racial slurs being thrown at them).

The Integrity of Denim

A few weeks ago my husband gifted me a pink vintage bicycle. He was aware of my admiration for women who choose to cycle as opposed to getting around by car for some time.
