TEA Tunic

DSC_1154__ed

 

Hey Loves

A great opportunity has come up that I hope I will be able to share with you soon. I know I've been absent a whole lot, but the business of blogging really requires dedication- and I just haven't had the time- or the help- that I've had in the past.

I considered letting the blog go, but as fate would have it, this blog has a wider audience than even I had originally anticipated. I'm gonna try to rise to the challenge again- this time I beg your indulgence. For those of you who tell your friends about Island Style, or recommend my page to other bloggers, or even meet me and say, hey, I saw you on Black Girls Killing It (LOL) - thank you so much!!!! We sometimes underestimate how far our work can reach, and the good we can do if we focus on the positive.

Much love, blog-fam.

Hi Loves

What's your style? Are you trendy, bohemian, classic, sophisticated, or some combination of them?

Whatever you wear, make sure it's a representation of who you are- not just what's available in stores.

My maxi is from J-crew, and I'm wearing a pair of white havainas. One of the best things about wearing a maxi is that you can wear comfy shoes with no guilt.

Birthday Dress

Hi Loves,

I celebrated my birthday this past Tuesday, and I gotta admit that this was the quietest year on record. I did manage to get a home cooked breakfast out of it this year- so I think that's a major accomplishment.

Now, for the important stuff:

This year's birthday dress is this ombre Helmut Lang dress I got from Net-A-Porter.

Not much else to say about it- it's black, white, grey, draped and very forgiving around the mid-section (lol). As the years go by, I find my girlish figure is not always as forgiving after dessert.

Ah well, we can't have it all- at least not at once.

As usual, thanks for stopping by

How great is this maxi?

In the spirit of supporting Caribbean talent, I reached out to an old friend from UWI St. Augustine who has a fabulous line of dresses and kaftans. His was one of the first lines I carried in my store when I first opened. If you would like the opportunity to have your designs sold in Antigua, or if you're interested in getting your own piece from this designer, leave me a message in the comments or email me at island.styleantigua@gmail.com

DVF Kaftan

Hello loves!

Is anybody else having a rough time with the weather? They say a steady drizzle is worse than torrential rains- and it's drizzling again today. This post is another one from my birthday weekend when I had a lazy Saturday at Sheer Rocks. I also wore a black monokini underneath.

The best thing about kaftans is how easy they are to style.

One of my newest additions is this Diane Von Furstenburg dress that I am already over-wearing. LOL

For a foundation garment, I've used a Benetton dress liner- another find from the spring cleaning a few weeks ago. It almost ended up in the junk pile, but I figured it would make a good petticoat (don't judge me)

... too late?...Ah well

Thakoon Maxi

Hello Loves

Hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend. I spent mine in full wedding mode as a bridesmaid for one of my best girlfriends. It was a beautiful, classy and fun event and every turn was a new photo opportunity. Truly a well thought out event. I wouldn't be surprised to see it in a magazine- it was that good.

We all flew out for the wedding and unlike Antigua, St. Kitts was not too rainy- but I think I had a bit of a bug so now I am suffering from laryngitis- no fun. Nonetheless it was a wonderfully romantic weekend for both the couple and their guests- and we will not soon forget it. It was also great to reconnect with old University friends, and finally meet/ introduce them to all the new additions in our families - UWI for life!

On to the outfit: 

Dress: Thakoon

Sandals: Zara

Bracelets: David Yurman

.... by now you know I love a maxi
