Pompasette Popup Haul and Other Goodies

My love for a good shopping experience is well-documented along with my love for things Caribbean.  Local and regional designs in one location makes for easy, convenient shopping.

Unsurprisingly, this year’s Pompasette Popup Shop at the Barbados Museum once again had me in my happy place.

If I had no financial limitations, the damage would’ve been real but since I had to pace myself, I made four purchases.

1. A tee from SMWARNER artwithattitude. You may remember those gorgeous hand-painted pieces from the Pompasette Brunch Party.

2. Printed earrings from Peaces by Anya. I recently came across this brand and I’m definitely liking the options.

3. Necklaces from The Crop Pop Up Shop. The options were endless and gorgeous but I limited myself to just two.

4 . This wrap from Wrap Crush. Headwraps are often my weekend go-to and I can’t wait to play around with this one!

Now for all the things I left behind…

RORI wrap belts from Sew Lisa.

Choosing The Perfect Boots for Kadooment Day

Kadooment Day is fast approaching and if you’re jumping,  you’re probably trying to get all your accessories in order.

One of the key things for the road is shoes. They complement your costume so you can be The Baddest thing on the road AND they’ll keep your feet in relative comfort while you Tip and Ben Ova.

Boots have become a very popular alternative to sneakers in recent years. If you want to avoid hobbling in pain before you reach Station Hill, you’ll need a comfortable fit.

 

1. If you don’t want to go totally flat, choose a manageable wedge over a heel since you’re going to be on your feet all day. If you must have a heel, make sure it’s not a stiletto.

2.  Pointy toes will make your legs look longer but a round toe is likely to be more comfortable. Try different styles and walk around the store as much as possible.

3.  Make sure the boot is padded. Remember, the goal is to be as comfortable as possible.

4. Try the boots with socks in the store to ensure you have the correct size. You don’t want to find out your shoes are too tight while you’re rushing out the door on jump-up day.

 

5. Make sure the boot isn’t too heavy. You’re going to be wearing them for a long time and you don’t want to get too tired too early. Work is tomorrow!

If you’re wondering where to get your boots (and carnival stockings), check out The Shoe Palace in Collonade Mall (formerly Dacosta’s Mall). They have a wide range of styles and colours as shown above.

Happy shopping and happy jumping!
