Star Awards 2017

I had the amazing privilege to attend the 9th Annual Star Awards last Thursday. I was so excited! I had so much fun dressing up and doing my makeup. It was a really magical night for me especially seeing the beautiful dresses and tuxedos. The highlight was however the fashion portion of the night. I was invited to style the models for one of our local designer, Jeritt Williams, newest collection, Emerald Island. I was so honored to be a part of that. Actually this was my first time ever doing one. It was something I've always wanted the opportunity to work with an amazing and talented designer like Jeritt was a dream come true. Even though I was there to help, the designer was hosting the awards and couldn't really be there to see to everything. So after much guidance I and his protege was left to dress the models and make sure they got to the runway on time and in order. I was never so terrified and excited. I was fretting because I didn't want to mess up and make anyone look bad or one of the models fall on stage (yes that  was a real and valid fear). After the quick change, walk and change again and 8 minutes of elevated heart rates and cold sweats it was done. I had so much fun and would to do that again

Valentines Red Velvet



Valentines is right around the corner (ehhh, tomorrow)  and we islanders tend to go all out! The day is usually celebrated with various restaurants offering Valentines day breakfasts and lunches and dinners and with shows and festivals. What I love most about the day however, is the dressing up. I don't usually celebrate since I believe the day is mainly for couples (single) and lovers (not in love)  but I enjoy partaking in the inevitable explosion of reds and pinks the day bring. I bought a lovely 'Valentine' red velvet top from New Look to wear to my school's Valentines red and white extravaganza. It was a big hit and I received many compliments on it. I paired it with blue jeggings and burgundy flats and a gold and black zip belt all from New Look.

From Dusk Til'...

Hello lovelies! I'm back again with an overdue post. I wanted to show you guys this dress for a while  and now I finally have the chance. This is a beautiful, dusky pink dress from ASOS Curve. It is so flowy and goes well with my favorite sandals from New Look. This dress is perfect for all shapes and I love it so much! Its actually off-the-shoulder but I find the style to be very cumbersome at times so I wore it...on-the-shoulder...right.

OK.

It's in a size UK 24/US 20 and is so comfortable and the material is very soft. I could have sized down to my usual size 22 as the dress came bigger than I expected but I used a belt to give it some shape. At this size it's loose, flowy design skims over my body beautifully.

It's still very warm here in Turks so this dress is comfortable enough for day wear but is heavy enough for chilly nights if worn with leggings or tights. A true dusk til' dawn dress.

I should also note that this dress, albeit a heavyish jersey material, held up well for my days activities. I took my pics after leaving the beach. Usually I find certain brands clothing to fade a bit after being in the sun and salt for a while but this dress is still has its vibrant color.
