Breakfast date turned photoshoot
Long time no see. Here’s a quick little outfit of the date from a breakfast date over the weekend. I can’t believe that summer came and went just like that, and I’ll be back in London in 3 weeks. Already can’t wait for Christmas!
The Grand Cafe in Green Park is definitely one of my favorite places for tea and scones..
The Grand Cafe in Green Park is definitely one of my favorite places for tea and scones (an macarons) in London! It’s one of the most affordable yet extravagant places so of course I had to take my friend here the day after she came to visit. If you ever come to London, it’s definitely a must!
I was recently invited to a fashion exhibition for two local fashion designers at the National Gallery art museum. The inspiration behind the fashion pieces were paintings, sculptures, and photography. Here are my favorite pieces designed by Jawara and Isy B.
The first 3 pieces represent slavery in the islands are made out of leather. The ensembles in the second and fourth photos are inspired by paintings painted by local artists on the island. The white dress in the second photo is inspired by a winding sculpture resembling a conch shell, sculpted by a local artist as well.
The last two dresses are inspired by Caymanian Culture. The brown dress is made out of a potato sack, embellished with pearls and cinched in with blue fabric. The last 2 dresses (in the last photo) are inspired by local thatch work made in the islands’ earlier days. I couldn’t get a photo of the back, but there is beautiful thatch detailing.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated you all, but here are some photos of one of my last days at home, on the beach (my all time favorite place if you haven’t caught on by now). I’ve recently just started a new chapter in my life which I can’t wait to update you guys on soon!
