A reflection…

When I attended Marian Academy, there was always a day designated during term time for reflection.

This week I wanted to share with you a few things that have come under my radar that I found quite interesting and important to the way fashion and the arts are shaped in the Caribbean.

Their hair…

For as long as I could remember, I was always uncomfortable with my frizzy, curly hair.

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.

Caribbean designers

It feels so good to not wear a coat. I’m back in Guyana for a bit before I leave for my belated honeymoon.

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.

Balmain x H&M, a review

Almost every fashion conscious person with Instagram is aware of the Balmain Fashion Revolution or the hashtag Balmainarmy.

Not investing

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

Shoes as art

Three weeks ago, I visited the Mode Museum (Momu) Fashion Museum in Antwerp to see the Footprint Exhibition.

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’.
