Let the Accessories Speak

“I’m not content with just wearing a T-shirt and jeans everyday. I love fashion and I love playing with it.” – Vanessa Hudgens

jeggings, racer back, coconut necklace, braided belt

You know those days when you don’t know what to wear?

I had one of those Saturday before I went into town. But for once I decided to be rational instead of digging through my drawers like a crazy person.

I chose a simple base of jeggings and my go-to racerback tank then I let my accessories do the rest. The coconut shell necklace was one of my must-buys on my Antigua whirlwind trip and I paired it with a braided belt and those lace-up wedges which I really love for weekends (last seen here with the same jeggings).

In the end I thought it came out pretty well and I realized I really love pairing shades of brown with black these days.

A Little Gift for Myself

I feel I’ve been away from here for way too long but being sick is the absolute worst and then I had to catch up on my real job. (Priorities are so not fun and fashionable.)

Anyway, it’s that time of year when we shop, shop and shop some more for gifts, trees, decorations and especially for us Caribbean folks, curtains and household items that may or may not serve a real purpose.

If there was ever a shopping season, it’s this. You know how it is when you’re in a shopping mood. Anything that jumps out at you has to become yours or you’ll dream about it for nights on end. . . r maybe that’s just me.

In any case, when I noticed Becky’s Beauty Box had a 50 per cent off sale, the bargain hunter in me couldn’t help it; it was time to get new nail colours.

Along with some other stuff, I got these three babies who now bring my Avon Nailwear Pro collection to six.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you might’ve realized that I’ve been developing a nail polish addiction and I thought these would add to my growing stash.

If you notice the condensation on the older colours, that’s because I store them in the fridge. I don’t know where I picked up that tip from but I’ve been keeping my nail polishes in there for years and it really helps to prolong their life.

It’s the eve of Christmas Eve and there’s much to be done but if you find the time, let me know what are some of the fun things you’ve picked up this holiday season.

Trend I’m Feeling: Cap Toe Shoes

Trend I'm Feeling: Cap Toe Shoes

Cap toes have been the rage for the past few months and it’s easy to see why.

They add a little extra *umph* to a shoe which can make it more girly, edgy, fierce, classic, anything really.

What I also love about the trend is that it’s not restricted to neck-breaking heels so they’re plenty of flat options which allow you to be cute, comfortable and still on trend.

I’m yet to buy a pair but they’re a definite soon-must-have for me.

For those who want to transform a pair of shoes which they already own, here’s a simple DIY from Glamour.

Have you gotten a pair yet?
