Have You ever bought a Piece (of Fashion) and based Your entire outfit around it? Maybe a particular earring, a certain shoe or a unique hat?
Well in this outfit of the day, it was the headband for Me! A few days before the Bahamas’s 47th Independence Day, I cam across a sponsored ad for a local Bahamian designer who was making Androsia Print headbands. Androsia Print is a fabric that’s native to the Bahamas.
No celebration necessary. I didn’t purchase the headband to celebrate Independence. It was simply “that piece”! The one that you lock eyes with at a boutique and have to have it for your wardrobe collection. That one single piece that You center an entire outfit around. That is what the Androsian Print Braided Headband was for Me. Paired with a straw handled clutch (straw bags and straw work are also native to the Bahamas) I curated an outfit fit for a modern day Bahama Mama!
Here’s what I wore…
Androsian Print Braided Headband
One-Sleeve White Tie Blouse
White Faux Alligator Skin Mules
Straw Handled Clutch
Life is coming at me fast this summer! I don’t think my closet can keep up with my invites. But I’m grateful for being busy, because I get bored easily.
Oh! And my birthday is in a few days (weeks actually), which means my style has to grow up with me as I get older.
Thats the fun in style. As your life grows, your style evolves. So when Pandora invited me to a “girls night out” at their boutique on Bay Street, Nassau, Bahamas, I figured I would put on my GROWN and sexy to commemorate the final years of my 20 somethings.
Here’s what I wore…
Neon Yellow Blazer
Black Plunger Neck Body Suit
Floral Multi-Colored Short Pants
Gold Metal Belt
Black & Gold Ankle Strap Chunky Heels
Black & Gold Clutch
Its been a while since I blogged about fashion and my outfit of the day.
The truth is I haven’t been putting on no outfits, and going anywhere in the day. I’ve been so consumed with my work schedule that my social life (not that I ever had much of one) declined and I wasn’t shopping for new clothes, because I haven’t worn my old ones yet.
I’ve been in this state for months, but Spring has a way of renewing things like flowers, houses, and mindsets. One such mindset was my own, and one day I decided I’m going to get dressed up, go out and Spring my life forward!
With a mix of old clothes and new accessories, here’s what I wore:
- Side Cut-Out Jeans Body Suit
- Green Tea Length Skirt
- Neon Pink Pineapple Clasp Belt
- Clear Strap Lucite Heels
- Custom-made “Bahama Mama” Pursenal Paradyse Wristlet
- Minimal Jewelry
This outfit works because my jeans body suit & lucite heels are neutral, while my belt and skirt adds colour to the look.
