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.
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.

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!

Here are a few photos from my adventures in Little Cayman that I talked about in my last post.
For those of you who do not know, I am from the Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands are made up of 3 islands and I live on the biggest one. But For the first time in 10 years, I took a trip to the smallest one, Little Cayman.
Little Cayman has a population of about 300 people (maybe less), and it is my favorite place in the world. Not only are you forced to relax, but you feel and sense of joy all the time because there is absolutely nothing to worry about. You can go outside and you will hear nothing but Booby birds or the crashing of waves from the sea.
I took my camera along with me and captured a few beautiful photos of the island that I will be sharing with you in my upcoming posts. Sadly I was only there for 4 short days but I cannot wait to be back!
