Fashion Meets Art ft. Isy B & Jawara

I was recently invited to a fashion exhibition for two local fashion designers at the National Gallery art museum. The inspiration behind the fashion pieces were paintings, sculptures, and photography. Here are my favorite pieces designed by Jawara and Isy B.

The first 3 pieces represent slavery in the islands are made out of leather. The ensembles in the second and fourth photos are inspired by paintings painted by local artists on the island.  The white dress in the second photo is inspired by a winding sculpture resembling a conch shell, sculpted by a local artist as well.

The last two dresses are inspired by Caymanian Culture. The brown dress is made out of a potato sack, embellished with pearls and cinched in with blue fabric. The last 2 dresses (in the last photo)  are inspired by local thatch work made in the islands’ earlier days. I couldn’t get a photo of the back, but there is beautiful thatch detailing.

Matchy Matchy

Hey guys, long time no OOTD!

I love a good affordable yet cute ootd for summer and the “matchy-matchy”  trend has been one of my favorite looks this year. For this look I pared a striped denim jacket with light blue jeans and Nike air force ones and added a simple necklace, along with minimal makeup.

Last Days

Hello!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated you all, but here are some photos of one of my last days at home, on the beach (my all time favorite place if you haven’t caught on by now). I’ve recently just started a new chapter in my life which I can’t wait to update you guys on soon!

Today’s outfit was inspired by my idea of a skater girl. A fashion forward skater girl of course. I cut my men’s Thrasher t-shirt in half and some destroyed denim from American Eagle. Then added some Vans to top off the look.

Formal Floral

For the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant at the Westin hotel  I had fun dressing up in a flowy, long- sleeved sheer dress by Betsey Johnson (my childhood favorite). My shoes are from Payless (because why spend 100’s of dollars for cute heels?) and my clutch is from Tous. I accessorized with a diamond pendant of my island and Swarovski earrings.
