SUNDAY BEST




Caribbean Tales

Sunday Best

Be careful, do not wear all your clothes at once,
save it for special occasions.
 Save it for a Sunday,
Save for something good,
something worthy, something real.
You do not want to over do it.
 You don't want people saying you don't have nice clothes, no clothes or no money do you?
Save it,
It doesn't matter if you never wear it or always wear it on Sunday, 
 Just save it.Keep it clean,wash it , hang it, iron it . and
Save it.
You may grow out if it, but you will use it. I promise you.

Its new, you can't wear right away. You have to save it.
Wait, wait for the right time.
wait for a Sunday.

Everyone is out in the street after church and eat.
After drinks and spills,
After community games and grass stains.
 After house hoping and friend collecting,
Wear it, wear it then.

Show them that you have class and all that madras
A madame or monsieur of your castle of shack.
This day count, you will be as fresh as  a sugar cane and  two juicy mangoes,
With your creole blood, bone and hips.
Wear it , wear it then.

with Monday to Saturday being purely empty days feel work, trips to bush river or beach,
 why dress up ? why waste it?
unless you may go to town, Roseau ,
 You can't walk with banana stained shots and bleached washed tops for all to see.
So Sunday,
Sunday it will be.
Save It.

When this jumpsuit joined my clothes collection, I first thought, hmmmm. The material and print combo doesn't impress me much. It have gone two ways, give my grandma a jumpsuit for Christmas or turn it into cushions. My cape making class would have paid off there right? Honestly, these options were a little far fetched. I cannot imagine my little grandmother walking in a jumpsuit. 

Besides all of that, I gave it a chance, which was worth it. It worked perfectly, Who knew . I am even smiling while typing this. This outfit is great and can be worn during both winter and spring. Actually throughout  all seasons. 
I had such a crazy weekend. I seriously felt like I attend everyone birthday.I made it through though. This outfit was the last one worn this weekend.I chose it to reflect the occasion which was both christening and birthday.

 I choose to wear my pearls set, all bought separately. This set to gave the outfit a classy Sunday best, Church feel. The bold colour of the heels adds an element of  funk,which you all know I am always here for.

Overall  I love the jumpsuit  and I will definitely be using throughout all seasons.

CITRUS AND JEANS

I have been searching for a comfortable high waisted jeans for, hmmmm a couple months.Well since Asos sent me a coupon for five years of shopping with them, I treated myself .Asos really have a way of getting at me . Like honestly, why would I need to celebrate my five year anniversary with a clothing company? I might as well buy some shares now! Before you know it, my ten anniversary will be up. 
Without a doubt I would want to celebrate in style. 

ABOUT THE JEANS (Asos)
Should I say it? Errm, I will think about it. Ok, ok, I will tell you .Well well , I have to say this is the most comfortable Jeans I currently have . I bought to my true I size and they fitted perfectly . 
Positive points are that they stay up perfectly, I don't think I needed a belt  I was also surprised by the fit. 

THE CROP TOP ( Asos)
I bought a few crop tops recently to get a feel of what type would work for me. Even though I really like this orange print crop top, and it fits well I personally think my crop top from my  H&M post works best for my shape. 

THE SHOES (Primark)
  I snapped these babes up for just change £12. I bought them  because it can be used both through summer Fall/winter. You can find similar here 

THE EARRINGS
 These I bought in the Aldo sale. You all know how I feel about my sales.

THE AFRICAN MAXI SKIRT || THE ANKARA STORY

Ok, I put my hands put. I have hoarding tendencies with African print cloth, I am not sure if the same thing happens to you.With all the excitement exerted I purchase every fabric with all hopes that it will grow up to be a beautiful pencil skirt, dress or jacket.Now, I can't safely say, that rarely happened.

Until recently! It all changed , I collected all my 5 yards and took them to made the tailor . I used my five year Ankara print to get a feel of the tailor before taking the big step.

I was impressed, although it is a pretty simple skirt to make and wear. I have to say it is an essential piece for spring/summer. I felt like a royal bride in this skirt I would say, It is the ultimate maxi skirt. It is a bespoke piece making  the length just perfect.

The shirt I bought from George Asda but you can find a similar at H&M . The Contrasting colours of the orange skirt and the pink  H&M shoulder bag with my diy head tie worked perfectly.  Find similar shoulder bag here.

My shoes are from (Asos), I know it is apparent as you can't  see my shoes . If you ever get the chance to sit down or climb some stairs you should be show off this flats. Let’s be honest, you could wear uggs or crocs underneath this skirt and you will still be safe . That's why it is the ultimate maxi skirt.

H&M'S FLORAL SET || CROP TOP & MIDI SKIRT

As you know, H&M tries to fit us adults into kiddie sizes by running their clothes two sizes smaller than normal. That being said, I still order from them as they do some quality pieces.I don't have a problem ordering bigger sizes if necessary.Take this two piece floral set for example. I promise it's not a dress! It was love at first sight. I spied on it for awhile but it didn't move into the sale category as fast as I wanted. I then closed my eyes real real tight and got it .

It fitted perfectly. I am normally a size 16 skirt and the and 16 top.With H&M I had to size up and you all should too. I like my clothes fitted correctly and for my shape. Can you even imagine if this set was too big? You might just think I wrapped my curtains around me and call it a statement piece. 

Yes ladies and gents sizing is really important. Wearing the right size will not only make you feel comfortable but confident in what ever you choose to wear.I would never try to squeeze in to or buy something smaller hoping to fit into.

Although it's a floral print , all together the feel and the print screams Ankara (African wax print fabric)

This set fitted so perfectly , there was no need for any shapewear (control pants). This outfit would be appropriate for a garden party, wedding, evening dinner, lunch date. It all depends on how you want wear it. I will be doing a post to show how you could play with just the top and bottom as individual pieces.

Day to Night Featuring Asos Curve Tule Dress


My first day to night look. I do hope is the first of many to come.  I had been watching this ASOS dress from the beginning of summer.When I first saw it, I thought I had to have you. With my grandmother’s fugal ways forcefully instilled in me, I waited until it went on sale. I snatched this baby up as soon as the discount was reasonable enough. Word of advice, chose your sales, not every sale is for you. There may be bigger percentages round the corner.

Summer Day Look

This dress is versatile, the fact that it's a hybrid of  a bodycon dress and tule layer skirt. I thought I could play with it a little. I started off with the summer day look. I paired it up with a mix print converse and a bright pink belt to add a playful fresh colour to a rather plan canvas.
I used this dress as a blank canvas and set myself a challenge since I don’t usually wear grey. This is why the all accessories chosen are screams summer. I also paired this look with an ASOS time mix print clutch.When you have such a blank canvas like this dress, you can never over accessorize.

Summer Night Look

 I did a little more than just adding a pair of heels. Taah dahh ! It’s a new dress. Well no, not really, it’s the same dress. I would like to show you what a small change of accessories and how a one second alteration can transform this look from day to night.

I kept the bright pink belt, then took the Tule part of the dress and tuck one end underneath the belt. Make sure that the belt holds your chosen end securely. You would not want to be fixing you dress all night right?
Now that’s sorted, add a  gold or pink clutch  and finally your heels. Love these heels, not so much for comfort, because they are so dam pretty. It is the essence of summer itself. Flowers! Colour! Pop!
