Kelly Rowland's Performance at CFW 2013

This is the final post on Caribbean Fashion week 2013, as I mentioned Kelly Rowland was the headlining act for the second night, and  as a Destiny's Child fan  I was extremely excited but a bit disappointed as I was expecting her to be ultra glamorous but as you can see from the pictures below she casually styled a leather overall and what appeared to be combat boots and although the 90's inspired overall is trendy right now I felt that she didn't give me the  "get yo life "glam factor I needed.In addition to this  the length of performance was just too short...maybe a bit over fifteen minutes, maybe I'm exaggerating, aside from this she gave us a medley of some the DC chart topping hits  we loved and  her hit songs as a solo artiste.....




Here is the footage that  I uploaded to my under construction Youtube channel

The CFW 2013 Catwalk

As I promised on  Facebook  here are a few snapshots that I captured from the runway on the second night of Caribbean Fashion Week 2013...


*Flowerchild 1999 by Kaysian Bourke


*Wild/ Free by Raecine 'Rae' Williams


*Yefkir by the Ethiopian  native  Fikirte Addis


 *Crown Atelier by Tigerlily Hill 


Overall FlowerChild 1999 by Kaysian Bourke was my favourite collection of the night as not alone were the   pieces immaculately crafted, they were  flirty ,feminine and wearable straight off the runway.I am currently obsessed with the blue and pink skirt.

Which piece above did you find interesting?

Stay tuned for a short video of Miss Kelly's performance and my thoughts in the next post.
Be Blessed and Be a Blessing

Floral Accents

Last night I attended the second installation of Caribbean Fashion week 2013, my outfit choice was a slight  adaptation of my prior Monochromatic inspiration post  and also includes  floral print which is one of the biggest trends of 2013.....



I decided to pair my floral panel skirt with my lace bodysuit which also has floral detailing upon close inspection, to make the look cohesive I picked the mustard colour from the skirt and wore a matching pair of pointed toe pumps, then I threw on the blazer as I knew that the venue would be cold, however the outfit could stand alone as seen below....

Blazer - Urban Behavior
Skirt- Forever 21
Belt- Asos
All other items purchased locally



I hope you enjoyed this fashion post stay tuned  for pictures from the actual showcase

Monochromatic Nature

Monochromatic


CFW 2013 is just days and if you do plan to attend the event but have no idea of what to wear then the above collage serves as great inspiration .An all  black outfit is the easiest way to go when one is clueless , the trick however is to play with different elements to add interest .The above outfit has an infusion of current trends such as peplum, leather and lace, although its very simple its classic and timeless and would be perfected with a bold red pout and a high bun or side swept hair.

Would you rock this look
