RECAP: NYFW Day 1

If you follow me on instagram, then you would know that I attended New York Fashion Week S/S 2015. For someone who is a self-proclaimed, die-hard fashionista, I have never been eager to go to New York- the city of fashion. Prior to this trip, I'd been to New York twice before with the first time being in 2011 because of work, but this trip was simply amazing. An awesome experience that has changed my mind about the big apple.


Even though September is considered Fall, NYFW in September is usually about Spring and Summer wear for the upcoming year, so my outfit reflected the same. Considering that it was NYFW and all the 'who is who' usually bring out their best outfits, I was struggling with what to wear because I really don't have or care much for high-end brand clothing. Either way, I paired a Springy floral blazer with some high waist shorts and open toe sandals and voila, that was my outfit for day 1.








 I met this doll A Sara Dee from the UK. She was around and about capturing shots of everyone and I loved her ensemble and wanted a shot with her. We ended up chit chatting and had a great time.

When Nic and I went to the Lincoln Centre to take in all the action, we had no idea what we were in for. We had absolutely no idea how many photographers, magazines, agencies were there with cameras. The minute we stepped foot on ground we were swarmed by everyone and when I say everyone, I mean everyone. It was overwhelming to say the least and it got to the point where we just stood in one spot and posed. We couldn't even move if we wanted to. To be amidst people who share the same passion as I do had me buzzing.



I met Dalvin at Cayman Islands Fashion Week in April 2014. He flew in to showcase his line on the island.We instantly gravitated to each other and have kept in touch ever since. The boy is just too fierce!










If you attended NYFW SS 15, please feel free to share your experience. I'd like to hear all about it.

MY STYLE: Yellow Diamonds


Happy Monday loves! Kicking off the Monday with yellow diamonds. If I were to make a list of my top 5 favourite stores to shop, H&M would rank high on that list. Their items are not only affordable but diverse. At any given point you can find items to dress up or dress down and these diamond print, sateen pants are one of those items. Although they've been sitting in my closet unworn for quite some time, I finally found a simple top to pair them with. These pants make a statement and I didn't want to kill the outfit with a fussy top so a simple, light pull over did the trick.

Let's talk about this backdrop though. If you have visited my island, Grand Cayman, then you know that we are a clean, serene little piece of paradise. Graffiti walls and artistic, public wall murals are something that is very new. My photographer who is also an artist created his own wall (which I will share in full at another time) and before seeing it, I was hesitant to shoot against it because I wanted my outfit to stand out and not clash too much with the wall. To my surprise, the blues in his wall beautifully complimented my outfit.

INSPIRED STYLE: Double Denim


Today's look is by no means an original one but definitely a classic one. There is something crisp, refreshing and summery about all white with a touch of denim. Although most countries are now seeing the back end of summer, we're fortunate to still have warm days.



My look was inspired by KT Reid of KTR Style. Her American Girl style was quick, simple and chic. To me, this is the perfect weekend outfit.

MY STYLE: Lady



As a self-proclaimed fashionista, I must admit that I do not always follow fashion rules, trends, fashion history etc., which leads me to say that I never did quite understand the rule, 'No White After Labour Day'. I eventually got around the researching the rule and while I now understand its origin and on-going tradition, I can't promise that I will adhere it. 

The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you- Coco Chanel

I LOVE white. I've repeated it in several blog posts but I really, really do. White is so pure, so classy, so lady-like, so fresh, so crisp. Whenever I wear full white, especially a dress, I feel so royal.

MY STYLE: Tulle & Lace




From time to time, I'll go through the gallery of blog photos I have taken over time and sometimes I stumble upon outfits that were never posted. I first debuted this tulle maxi skirt here and it is one of my favourite looks. 






I first saw this statement necklace on Kela of Kela's Kloset when we met at the Style Bloggers of  Color Conference in Miami in 2013. I instantly fell in love with it and was on the hunt ever since. I just had to have it. Totally swooning!

MY STYLE: White Knot



I LOVE white. There are no two ways about it; I just do. Once again, I stepped a little outside my comfort zone and I'm not quite sure if it's comfort zone or modest zone. I'm a modest dresser. I haven't always been but I grew in to it. When I was much younger, I had a navel piercing so I would take any and every opportunity to show my piercing and tummy. Nowadays, I prefer to leave a lot to the imagination ;)


White was a huge hit on the catwalk this Summer and rightly so, it's the most practical shade for the scorching temperatures this season. 



Grecian braids are also trending heavily right now so I decided I'd try one on my locs and I love how it turned out. Do you?
