Before I speech, click the photo to see 10 alternative loafer slides I found… Back to the above: Knowing my gravitational pull to men’s styles (hello), I brooded over these Gucci Princetown leather slippers from afar. Months passed and I did not cave. Until spring started. I committed the cardinal sin of trying them on didn’t I (plus trying on the metallics – oh God are they good) “just to see.” That was my mistake. From then the search for a pair in my
The rest of the trip summed up in a few photos. They include places in St. Lucia like Gros Islet, Marigot Bay and Pigeon Island. We stayed at my parents home in Rodney Bay and borrowed Mum’s jeep to get around. More on Instagram. You can see 2013 photos from St. Lucia here and here.

So in January I was in St. Lucia and came back one month later. I know that looks odd and I will tell you why I am here again… Dress: Zara (old). Try Free People (on sale) Sandals: Mango. Reminds me of the Valentinos a little (see my brown ones on Instagram). Try Ancient Greek, Schutz or Steve Madden (love!). Shades: Ray-Ban. Bag: Madewell. Lipstick: MAC ‘So Chaud’ Apart from snapchat, most of you don’t know that I have a house over here that I rent long term to
I remember what it was like to buy a designer bag for the very first time… It was a Balenciaga black city bag (the one seen above). I had a replica at first (don’t judge) when I couldn’t deal with jumping straight to the real deal. It was lipstick red and much smaller. It got tons of compliments and I loved it to pieces even though it was a copy. About two years later, I took the plunge and upgraded to my first designer hand bag in buying the real Balenciaga. I remember
Outside of friends and family, nobody knows what I am about tell you: Michael and I met online by pure accident. Whenever we tell anyone our story, their jaw hits the floor in disbelief: “this should be a movie!!” Being it’s February 14th, I’m going to tell you too: Before moving to New York, I worked in London at an advertising agency where I received a random junk email. I call it junk because it was a mass invitation to the opening of a night club in New York. I
iPhone photo. Available: Gucci, Saks or Net-A-Porter in various colors. Unless you have been living under a rock, these mules have fast become the spring-before-spring-is-actually-here spring shoe. Despite their online popularity I am drawn to the whole lady like vibe. The heel is thick and the sexy arch is enough to imagine flip flopping around in them with denim or dresses. Plus I’m a shoe girl so could justify anything. Vince does a suede version that has a similar cut if you
I don’t talk a lot about make up because I use the same things over and over. Until last year when I got itchy feet to find “something better.” Here’s my really small but impressive (to me) round up of the ones that really work and actually deliver on their promise. Or as the Brits would say: it does what it says on the tin. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation I’ll do a separate post on foundations that I’ve reviewed last year but for now, this one tops
Lineisy Montero in Vogue Spain August 2015 . . . My thoughts on Martin Luther King Day . . . I showed SELMA to my Mum this time last week in St. Lucia. She was around when Dr Martin Luther King was alive and while watching the closing scenes showing real life footage of black and white people marching together in America I asked what it was like for her in England… Mum said that people would write ‘No Blacks’ on front doors. Michael and I looked at each other slowly shaking
Borderline wedding dress or table cloth? Dress: Thrift/Vintage. Reminds me of this Peter Pilot dress a little? Try Asos (on sale add a slip) or Flynn Skye (add flat sandals). Shoes: Converse. Bag: Mansur Gavriel (mini size). Also found at Bergdorf Goodman. Shades: Ray-Ban I HAD to bring this off the shoulder dress with me to St. Lucia. It’s basically a giant doily so the Chuck Taylors is to balance out the frill overload. MDS Stripes, Tiare Hawaii (hello) and MLM Label (love!!) do
Seeing in the first week of the New Year by passing through an old neighborhood…! Shirt dress: H&M. Similar from Asos or Net-A-Porter (on sale). Sandals: All Saints Men. Bucket bag: Mansur Gavriel. More colors. Similar from Mark and Graham. Shades: Ray-Ban. Belt: Vintage I spent a few months of my child hood with my grand mother in Castries (the capital of St. Lucia) where these pics were taken. Walking the streets reminds me of that time, especially when I pass close to
The first outfit post for 2016 in a dress from the best place… Dress: Mum. Try Asos’ maxi dresses or try a shorter version (on sale). Gladiator sandals: Mango. Try Ancient Greek (comes in darker colors). Bag: Madewell. Shades: Ray-Ban. Pendant: DIY So I’m in a dress that Mum gave to me. “Do you like this?” she said, holding it up. I almost couldn’t speak when I saw the eye popping orange and bell sleeves. It’s hard to find a similar one to it

Clashing colors, prints and badass styling. Seeing this editorial while in St. Lucia is the definition of perfect timing. Elle US March 2015. Model: Melodie Monrose Usually Caribbean fashion editorials are a checklist of rolling on beaches or laying in hammocks in cropped boob grazing t-shirts. Boy does this makes a change for.
