Dinner At Carluccio's

Thank the style gods for the little black dress! The ultimate staple and the most flattering garment in the business. Ladies you can never go wrong when wearing a black dress. NO matter the style, if you like it, it will look good on you. I've never felt so sexy before. It feels like an I-could-conquer-the-world kinda sexy. Before I had no idea where and when to wear this dress but when a close friend suggested a get together at a local restaurant called Carluccio's a little cartoon light bulb went on: Dinner at Carluccio's! My inspiration:

If I want to step out on a limb I'd say confidence levels went up a lot, especially when I decided to try a Hepburn-esque look. When I tried the dress on it all came together in my head: classic black and white photos with sultry poses, clip on earrings and a necklace and shoes 'borrowed' from my mother tied together with my best attempt at a pout/smirk/smile. The necklace is a set of faux pearls my mother wore to my high school graduation.  If she sees this post I can hear her screaming my name since I've been withholding their whereabouts for 2 years! Funny thing is I picked them out for her!

I had so much compliments on my look, One woman rushed up to me gasping 'Audrey Hepburn!'. Ha Ha! Thanks random woman, I sure felt very Hepburn-y. I don't think I've ever had so much fun going out for dinner before. The restaurant was really nice, not too cold, not too warm and the food was quite good as well.
Dress: similar| Shoes: similar| Hat: similar| Necklace: similar

I shot these pictures while waiting for my chronically late friend. I wanted to do the whole post in black in white but I couldn't decide so thought it would be best to mix it. Maybe some other time. The dress is from Boohoo in a UK22 and is made with a stretchy jersey fabric and it hits below the knee on me (midcalf on shorter girls) with an off the shoulder neckline. My shades are from Primark and they're my favorite to date and the only 'oversized' ones I found that I like. This hat is from ASOS but it was a long time ago that I got it so unfortunately its sold out.

Pretty huh?

Thinking back maybe lower shoes or flats would have been better to wear. I can't walk very long in heels before my feet starts to cramp. I'm also thinking I should add I might have been a tad bit overdressed.

I'm sorry if the pictures seem all over the place. I really couldn't decide on color or black and white. Which do you like?

Red Velvet...Cake

Do you ever feel like you need an excuse to wear something? Or do something? Yeah, me too. I hate and love it because sometimes you'll be thrilled to finally wear that dress, or pants, or shoes and it'll feel like heaven once you have it on. Now you finally have the opportunity to show the world that little extra piece of sexiness you had tuck away for a rainy day.

Before I never like how red looked next to my skin looked. I felt like it made me look drained (probably just me y'know...) so I shied away from it a while but then this outfit came along and I fell in love with red! I learn to break it up some with a lighter color piece and to try play around with different shades in accessories.

This skirt is made from a stretchy velvet-like material with a sheer panel just above the hem. Its from Boohoo and in a UK20. The shirt is from Primark and I wore the pink version in this post. My head scarf is one of many I've diligently thrifted over the years along with the clip on earrings and necklace and bag. I borrowed my shoes from my mother (and by borrowed I once again mean took. She still don't know)

Summer Wishlist: Memories Boutique Newbridge eShe Necklaces

Summer is almost here! I am looking for my summer jewelry from now since I want to be partying for most of summer and not have to think about my outfits. Memories Boutique have a lot of really cute necklaces in their Newbridge eShe Collection that I thought are so pretty and would look nice with a few maxi dresses. They are on the pricier side though if you are on a tight budget (like me!). I can't seem to stop looking at their website so I thought I would add some of my favorites here as a part of my summer wishlist.

Let me know which ones you like!

Brand To Watch: Konk Apparel

Oh TCI, I'll soon see your face...I can't wait to walk on the warm, white sand and swim in the cool blue ocean.

Speaking of home, I am over excited to see that we have an amazing local fashion brand called Konk! Konk Apparel is a Turks & Caicos clothing and accessories brand with designs inspired by the conch shell, a well-known symbol of the Caribbean. Each piece is also gathered from the Turks and Caicos culture, modern pop culture, and active lifestyle sports such as surfing, kiteboarding and skateboarding. They are a fresh approach to active wear with a nice Turks and Caicos twist, mixing fashion and sensibility with a modern edge. Every piece perfectly reflect the vibrant simplicity of the Turks and Caicos.

 I'm loving the blue top!

I am a serious hat girl so cute snap backs like this is definite yes! (They come in other colors as well!)

 Can't forget your sunglasses. How else are you gonna block out the sun AND look fly as well? Amazing aren't they? Which one is your favorite?

You can follow Konk on Instagram @Konkz | Facebook and Tumblr.
