Wedding Outfit: Pleated Maxi

 



Dress: Bisou Bisou | Shoes: Nine West (sold out) | Clutch: Ross Dress for Less (similar one here) |  Necklace: Style District | Earrings: Style District | Bracelets: Forever 21



Dear blog, oh how I missed you! It's been a month; one whole month since I last blogged. Truth is, I was away on vacation for two weeks where I visited North Carolina, and I've still been trying to get things in order since I got back a week ago. I didn't completely neglect writing, my true love, and so you can check out a blog post I wrote for It's Pixel Perfect on college fashion do's and don'ts on their blog.

Now let's get down to business, shall we? Looking at the pictures above, you would have realised that it isn't me. So, let me take this time out to introduce my mom!

Finding an outfit for a wedding can be a pain sometimes. Sure you don't want to outshine the bride, but you still want to look your best. That's exactly what I had in mind when I styled my mom for a wedding she attended on Saturday. To me, this whole look has an elegant feel. I thought this navy blue maxi pleated dress was perfect for a wedding. At first I wanted to switch up the gold belt for some colour, but I couldn't ignore the huge comeback gold accessories have been making this year. They are literally taking over every single store. She is also a bit on the short side, so I ensured she wore those gorgeous gold Nine West sandals to give her a lift so she wouldn't trip over the dress. I didn't want the accessories to be too fussy, so I kept it simple with these gold and clear drop earrings, two dainty layered necklaces, bracelets from Forever 21, and a nude gold studded clutch for some edge.
 
Have a lovely day!

Romp It Up!


Who said onesies are only for babies? For the past few years, the fashion world has seen full length jumpsuits, and their shorter versions which we know as rompers making their mark, especially as a summer must-have trend. They are extremely versatile, working perfectly for both night and day. Because it's only one item of clothing not requiring separates coordination, this versatile item is definitely a 'one-piece wonder'.

Music Festival Looks

Summer is all about fun, outdoor activities, including popular music festivals. In Jamaica, one of the biggest music festivals we have each summer is Reggae Sumfest which actually starts today (July 17) and ends this Saturday. If you read the Flair Magazine in the Jamaica Gleaner on Monday, you would have seen where fashion writer/stylist Natalia Oh chooses a few looks which can work for not just Reggae Sumfest, but for any other music festival around the world.
 
When choosing an outfit for such an event, it's best that you choose looks that are not just stylish, but also super comfortable, especially if you'll be standing throughout the entire day or night. With that said, ditch the stilettos and go for cute flat sandals or wedges. For more tips, check out the article from Natalia Oh!

My Basic Makeup Routine

Hey everyone!
 
Today I decided to share with you guys my basic makeup routine which is very quick and easy! How's 10-15 minutes?
 
Let me first start off by saying that I do not wear makeup everyday. It's not that I have anything against makeup, but I love being barefaced and allowing my skin to breathe as much as possible, especially since I have acne-prone skin. However, when I do, I like to keep it very fresh and natural looking.
 
When it comes on to makeup, whenever I find something I like, I tend to stick with it. For the past 3 years or so I used mostly Black Opal products, but I recently decided to switch things up a bit as it relates to concealer and foundation. So, of course, I went to Sephora to get some help with choosing another brand that I would actually enjoy using for a long period also.

Here goes:

Face


The first step is applying moisturizer. I switch up my moisturizers very regularly, but currently I use Clean & Clear's Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer. The next step is applying a small amount of my e.l.f. Mineral Face Primer. This primer provides me with a smooth canvas to work on, and it also helps my makeup to stay in place throughout the day.

Summer 2014 Trend : Black and White

 Yesterday marked the official start of summer, and what better way to start it off than with this post?

I recently had the opportunity to work with fashion blogger and stylist, Natalia Oh!, on a photoshoot for today's Outlook Magazine in the Jamaica Gleaner, where she is currently a contributing writer. She is really a Jill of all trades; makeup, styling, photography, and the whole works! I had such an amazing experience and I enjoyed working with her on this shoot.
