Life is Short;Buy the Shoes

For women, shoes are the most important. Good shoes take you good places.

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).
