Too Much Talent on this Rock 2: Alexis Campbell Designs

Continuing with my photos from Bridgetown Alive Meets Saturday in the City which I began yesterday with Shakad Designs, today I focus on Alexis Campbell Designs

I love the balance between the cool crisp white and the edgier leather details.’

The one above is my favourite but the others are just as attention-grabbing.




Too Much Talent on This Rock 1: Shakad Designs

Over the weekend I attended Bridgetown Alive meets Saturday in the City – an event designed to draw more activity into our beautiful capital.

It included a fashion show entitled Celebrating Independence Through Fashion where models showcased the lovely work of some of our young local fashion designers including Brandi Estwick with Iman Estie, Orlando Williams’ LindaBelle Creations, Alexis Campbell Designs and Rotchelle Parris’ Pink Lemonade.

Today I highlight Shakad Designs by Shanika Burnett and I will do the others in the coming days.

The thing I love most about Shakad is that no two pieces are alike since they are all hand-dyed individually. And then the colours are so vibrant and effortlessly Caribbean, it’s hard not to love them.

Hope you enjoy and remember to leave a comment about which is your favourite.

Floral Print Fun

I don’t do fashion, I AM fashion.

Primark floral print

It was floral print and had a swingy skirt.

Classic but fun and oh so gorgeous.

On sale and in my size.

Perfect.

I must confess that I was like a kid in a candy store in Primark during last month’s trip to Scotland (which you can read about here, here, here and finally here). But I tried to be sensible and not just shop for the sake of shopping.

I fell in love with this dress right there and then and I have no regrets.

Last Thursday it worked perfectly beneath a cardigan during my super crazy workday and on its own for a cocktail event in the evening. Perfect right?

Not too grown up to play dress up!
