TEA Tunic



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.

Painted Lady


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

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


Outfit details:

Kaftan: Diane Von Furstenburg

Bracelets: David Yurman

Sandals: Zara- available in black also (seen in previous post)

Earrings: Shelly (sp) new store in Redcliffe Quay

Cup of T.E.A.


Hello luvs,

... first look at what is coming next from my line. "Ethnici-TEA" will be: organic cotton, artisian embroidery, and lots and lots of volume.

It's way more work - logistically... than I anticipated; but I'm excited to have new pieces to share with you guys come March. I will shoot a full lookbook and post a link to it here for my overseas readers. For the local ladies, the entire line will be available at Upscale in Redcliffe Quay.

This look is modelled by Xiea. She is carrying a Chocolate handbag which is available at Upscale. (photo credit : the awesome Brass Angel ) Check out her blog.

... until next time...




Maxi Dress


Hello luvs

This dress is one of the pieces I did for the Afro funky Pop-Up in December. They were available at The Little Starfish but are all sold out now. There will be a new line available in September.
