This was supposed to be a carnival post but I don’t think anyone has the ability to ignore what’s going on in the Caribbean now with the inclement weather issues. I extend prayers for anyone affected by Hurricane Matthew and I am personally thanking God for covering my family and friends and myself.
Also, urging everyone who is able to help and can help to donate supplies, money to help all the islands and areas of the United States affected by Hurricane Matthew. For more information on how to support global reliefs click here: https://weather.com/news/news/hurricane-matthew-how-help
Packing for fetes can be a bit daunting. I think I’ve changed my mind about 10 times since I’ve started. I mean think about it you wait a whole year just for a week of a few parties, one to two days of galavanting on the road–I think it’s enough to send any one a bit mad.
Or I can just be a bit obsessive, maybe…
If you’re like me, the main thing is looking cute and wearing something that’s functional enough to fete in. There’s nothing
NOTHING!! like showing up to the event with everything in tact and then 5 seconds later, something broke or came undone or fell out…eliminating all probability of wardrobe malfunctions is stressful but necessary. My NUMBER ONE go-to is a good bathing suit or body suit. You know, the kind that’s multipurpose and supportive. The right suit can be paired with shorts, jeans, a cover up, flats, heels, a skirt and can pass as however you want it to look if styled correctly. Just be mindful of chafing, size and fit–but that goes for any garment. I love bathing suit tops, sets or monokinis especially for any fete involving some type of moisture aka sweat, foam, water etc. What’s your go-to piece for carnival fetes/parties?

With Miami carnival only a few weeks away, I thought it would be a great idea to post a wire bra look. This bra was a collaboration effort between myself and my sister Crystal of Evolve By Crys for Trinidad carnival 2016. When trying to figure out what exactly I wanted (which took a very very very long time), I knew that I didn’t want to wear a blinged out carnival bra or something too “costumey”. The end result was two trips to JoAnn’s fabric store where I found this beautiful rainbow batik fabric. Crystal built and shaped a crescent styled wire bra and I got to DIY-ing with my hot glue gun, stones and my sewing kit.
