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’.

Plus size developments

Far too often in the fashion industry we override certain developments and movements because fashion has this crazy partisan attitude attached to it.

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

It’s impossible to get dressed and not think of what other people may think of your outfit, especially if you happen to be a fashion conscious person.

‘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.

Lisa’s formal chic

I got the chance to style Lisa Punch again last Saturday for the Swearing-In Ceremony for President David Granger.

Coalition style

During the course of the election season, I played stylist to Lisa’s image for her rally appearances.

Who wore what

The Last Word

This week my focus is on the style diary of the women who performed at the GDF Anniversary concert last week: Guyanese Jacki Jaxx and Timeka Marshal and Jamaican Tanya Stephens.  

Local trends

I did a bit of shopping and browsing locally about a week ago, as I’m trying my best to stay away from internet shopping.

Plus fashion

Over the years, the fashion industry has learnt to become more accommodating and welcoming to all women.

Fabulous Lystra

UK-based Guyanese style icon Lystra Adams, commonly referred to as ‘the Queen of Instagram’ is possibly the most vivacious Caribbean woman of style to follow on the social media platform-Instagram.

Kes and Bang Bang TT

Kees Dieffenthaller, lead singer of Kes the Band, is incredibly gorgeous. I don’t know what your taste buds are like, but when it comes to men, if they’re talented, ambitious and good looking, they are ‘my type’.

Meiling’s backlash

Meiling officially launched her entire ‘Borrowed from The Boys’ Collection last year at HomeTT in Trinidad.

My German experience

As my time in Europe winds down, today I decided to share some photos and experiences from my trip.

Trinidadian fashion pack

I got back from Port-of-Spain on Monday afternoon after a long and tiring week of fashion shows, collection viewing events and art exhibitions.

Just Jackie

When Lisa Punch was on centre stage a few months ago, a lot of questions were asked in connection with the local support given to local artists.

Racked TT

Last Sunday I left for Trinidad and Tobago to review a pop-up shop hosted by Emma Forster Hiscock, Stephanie Rydle and Ain Earle.

Getting your ‘cool glow’

The last word

You have probably had a friend tell you: “You are way prettier than her.” Or perhaps you have even asked for this justification to feel better about yourself at some point in time.
