Red and black and white polka dots

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.~Coco Chanel

I think I’m the happiest girl in the world this month with birthdays and travel plans and West Indies winning. I really hope everyone is enjoying October as much as I am.

This is what I wore to a friend’s birthday luncheon on Sunday. I really didn’t know what to wear and I kinda refused to do anything until West Indies had won the T20 World Cup so time got away from me and I went for the item that needed the least effort.

It doesn’t get much more classic than black, white and red. This is one of my favourite colour combinations and polka dots are just so much fun.

As it was a Sunday afternoon and none of my wedges go with this dress, flats it had to be since I could find no real reason to wear heels. Plus we were right by the beach so sandals made sense anyway.

For my Bajan readers, this bag is Bijoux Terner just like the black one here that’s in danger of me working it to death and the others that will probably appear on here sometime in the future. Yes, I love my Bijoux Terner.

And I love my blue nail polish as well. There’s just something about looking down and seeing a burst of colour. It’s like all is well with the world….or something like that anyway.

I wonder where the rest of this month will take me…

Accessories are my drug… Featured Store: Vibrant

Yesterday I promised I would be featuring one of my favourite places to shop in celebration of InMyWardrobe’s first month-iversary.

Well I deliver on my promises! Except the place isn’t really a place. (I’ll explain in a bit.)

As you may have figured out by now, I love accessories. What you may not know is that some of those I’ve worn in previous posts come from… *drumroll* ….Vibrant!

For example: the necklace I wore here and the bracelet here.

This online store is based in Barbados and is forever tempting me with its affordable range of unique earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces.

From the first day I saw that ad on the side of my Facebook I was hooked. And I swear each set of new stock is more tempting than the last. Customers have the option of picking up their goodies or having them delivered. I choose delivery because I like getting colourful packages brought to me in the middle of the day lol.

A friendly piece of advice: If you see anything you like, order right away because these girls are fast!

So, without further chatter, here’s some of the Vibrant stuff I’ve welcomed to my wardrobe over the months. I really didn’t realise I had so much until I went looking for them to photograph …. *shame*, well *shame-ish* because I really do love and wear them all.

Hope you enjoy!

I honestly never realized I really like pink beaded stuff until now!

This bracelet goes with everything in my world. Maybe it’s because I kinda wear turquoise like it is black…

 

Sayonara September!

 

This month has finally come to an end and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m looking forward to October. Not only is it my birth month but I also happen to share it with some pretty awesome friends. As usual it’s gonna be an expensive month with all these celebrations (and the outfits they require) but I plan to fully enjoy it.

It so happens that I’m going on vacation at the end of this week so I’ll be putting my work clothes to rest and having fun with the other stuff in my wardrobe for two weeks.

Also, tomorrow will be InMyWardrobe’s first month-iversary. I love any reason to celebrate so in honour of this small milestone I’ll be letting you in on one of my wardrobe secrets.

Well it won’t be a secret after tomorrow but some things are just too good to keep to myself.

Hint: I’ll be highlighting one of favourite places to shop in Barbados.

You would’ve seen a few items from there in some earlier posts but I’ll also give you a peek at some that I haven’t featured as yet.

See you tomorrow!

Not too grown up to play dress up!
