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.

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.

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.

What’s in my Purse!

I love collecting purses and filling them with random things so I decided to film a video about what’s in my purse! I’ve filmed this video every year since I’ve been on youtube and it’s honestly just a reason for me to go through my purse and clean it out (if I’m being honest). Hope you all enjoy the video and don’t forget to subscribe!

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.

I wish I lived a glamorous life and could tell you that this was an OOTD, but it’s actually apart of a photoshoot I did for my job. I am wearing Herve Leger, which is a designer that I’ve admired for so long but could simply not afford so it was a privilege to wear this beautiful piece.
