As some of you may know, I moved to London to pursue fashion. Here is a classmate I styled a few weeks ago.

Louis Vuitton x Virgil Abloh Pop Up

The Virgil Abloh X Louis Vuitton pop up was such a refresher for fashion. Seeing a brand like Louis Vuitton, known for it’s classic style, flipped upside down and dipping it’s feet into the world of streetstyle was an experience. From an all white, clean detailed collection, to chained high-tops and fanny packs, Virgil did something that no one has ever seen before and he was the first person of color to do so which is a huge achievement. I hope you enjoyed the photos I snapped while I was there, and I will see you all in my next post.

A quick OOTD featuring my boyfriend’s photography

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.

Details:

Jacket- Forever 21
Jeans- New Look
Shoes- Nike

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.

Flora Leather

Long time no OOTD! One of my staple pieces in my wardrobe is a leather jacket. To me, they transform a simple outfit completely. All of my jackets are inexpensive, and although I would love to invest in a YSL one, the cheaper dupes from Zara and Forever 21 have been working just fine and still doing the job I want it to. This jacket is one of my favorites in my collection (from Forever 21 believe it or not!) because the sewn in flowers add such a statement. When I first saw it, it reminded me of the Gucci 2017 collections with the floral details so it definitely adds a more dressy and expensive touch.

Minimal Stripe

Hey Babes!

For this outfit of the day I paired a casual t-shirt dress with a wrap belt and block heels to create a casual chic look. This is definitely a go-to daytime to night time look, or even a quick and easy work look.
