Hey people! Just a quick outfit post. This is what I wore to last night’s relaunch of Jolie Lipsticks, a Barbadian line of lipsticks and lipglosses. I’ll have more about this brand another time but for now, here’s a link to the Facebook page where you can feast your eyes on all the pretty colours.
Dress from Funky Fresh, necklace from Vibrant,earrings from a set of 10 where none match, shoes from The Shoe Palace, bag Bijoux Terner.

Vince Camuto, I love you!
I love these shoes! They make me all of five inches taller, they’re actually pretty comfortable and they just generally make me happy when I look at them. In fact, even the box makes me happy. Plus they were on sale. And after discovering that Bridgetown stores apparently don’t have many shoes with spikes, I figured why not just go for shiny and sky-high.
PS.They can pass for black but they’re actually a really dark burgundy which you can pretty much only tell in the sunlight.
Right, so this was the dress I wore last weekend to the Barbados Music Awards. It came from local online store Funky Fresh and it was simply me. Black and white, peplum, classy.
The clutch is Bijoux Terner like so many others I have and I really like how it adds that pop of colour I’m such a fan of. It was last seen here on my birthday.
These are the super long earrings that save me when none of my necklaces seem to work and this multi-chain bracelet is probably about six or seven years old since I remember buying it for a Harrison College pageant. Some things really do stand the test of time (and my changing tastes).
Drop me a line and let me know which of your accessories have been with you for the long haul. And remember to like my Facebook page, follow me on twitter and look out for a new feature coming soon. 🙂

I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.

It was my birthday last Saturday and as has become tradition, dinner and cake were on the agenda. This year I opted for cupcakes and since even my baked goods must be fashionable, I bypassed the traditional flavours and opted for apple pie, pink lemonade, strawberry daiquiri and s’mores from Ultimate Cupcakes by Intimate Catering. I’ve since decided that cupcakes should be a food group.
Dinner took place at the Beach House Bar and Restaurant on the island’s West Coast and that’s where all the photos were taken except the last four which were shot at Limegrove Lifestyle Centre.
Now on to the outfit!
You know how sometimes you’re in a store just browsing and something just calls your name? That’s what happened with this dress. It was on sale (45 per cent off) and it was the only one on the rack. It totally looked like me even on the hanger and when I tried it on, it fit like a dream so I had no choice but to get it. I knew immediately that it would be my “birthday dress”.
The shoes (last seen here) are my favourite and most worn pair of heels since they are actually quite comfortable. And their simplicity was ideal for this dress. The clutch is Bijoux Terner.
And the ear cuff? Well I finally have ear cuffs lol. I’ve always liked their innate edginess so I got two when I was in Scotland and now I’m as happy as can be. I also picked up the rings on that trip.
I passed a series of panels like this just as I was about to leave Limegrove so I snapped a photo of the one I identified with most.
It feels like just the other day that I was excited about the end of September but already, there’s just a week left in October. Off I go to make the most of it!
