It's no secret I love the designs of luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. I've shared a few of my inspired looks like this one (I rocked last January on vacation in Colombia) as well as many of their images to serve as inspiration.
Dolce & Gabbana's designs are reminiscent of vintage-styles and silhouettes while being modern and playful. Bold patterns, mixed prints, heavy embellishments and ostentatious flair pervade their work and I appreciate all those aspects in fashion. My #stylesister Beyonce has also been spotted rocking their pieces with one of the most recent being a sweet mommy and daughter moment on Mother's day when the two wore Dolce's Hydrangea print dresses.
Now with all that said, I cannot ignore the recent controversy around Melania Trump wearing their pieces.
So let's chat about it below the jump!Read More
A few weeks have passed since my Aruba trip and it's now starting to heat up in NYC! When we got back from Aruba, we were welcomed by hot summer-like weather which made me very happy. It felt as though I had brought the good weather back with me, however, a day later NYC reminded me of who she was. It got chilly again!
Yes folks, my space heater, furry bedroom slippers and coat were in full effect again and I was bummed. Now, a couple weeks later, we're starting to feel the heat and all I can do is think about the sun, sand and all the fun Mildred had getting ice-cream.Read More
Oh how I love the Summer! I never want to say goodbye to warm temperatures, tropical prints and frozen drinks but even when I cry into my cocktail glass, the seasons never listen to me!
We're now a month away from Fall and I'm trying to make peace (kinda, sorta) and simply embrace the transition because I really don't have many quarrels with Fall except it indicates #WinterIsComing and that's when my tantrums are amplified.
During the early days of Fall, I enjoy that you can get away with wearing some of your Summer pieces, especially pants and maxi dresses. Today I'm sharing a transitional look that can be worn on a cool Summer evening or early Fall day.

Hello darlings! How's your summer going? I've been taking some time to enjoy beach days, fresh summer fruits and lots of ice-cream. Summer is my favorite season in the US and that's not too surprising since I grew up in Guyana. Guyana is located in South America and is the only country in the region with English as it's first language. Our culture is very much Caribbean even though we're located in this region.
Today's Style & The Bar Cart post is dedicated to my home country! I decided to capture the tropical essence of Guyana and our love to entertain and have a good time. A good Guyanese party is filled with plenty delicious food, nuff rum and music to mek you wine to de ground.

Hello darlings, I hope you're having a wonderful day! Last week we observed Memorial day in the US and chose to spend the holiday relaxing. Stef and I drove to Hoboken and had lunch & drinks near the water. The area was very quiet and exactly what we needed for a relaxing afternoon.
I finally wore this asymmetric white lacey off the shoulder dress I've had for a year now and loved it!

Valentine's Day is this Sunday and 'A Sunday Kind Of Love' has been stuck in my head all week long. I love Etta James' music and think this song is perfect for our upcoming day celebrating love. Etta's music spanned several genres including blues, soul, rock and roll, jazz and gospel and she had a way of making it her own.
See how Etta's music inspires my Vintage Valentine look.Read More
I love a good matching top and bottom just as much as I like mixing prints! This combination gives the illusion of a jumpsuit when belted. Check out this floral print top and short combo as I stroll through the streets of Brooklyn.Read More
