Hey StyleLeeders! Happy Happy Friday & cheers to the first days of December! I’m officially ready to take on this month and leave 2016 with a BANG! How bout’ you?
Over the weekend I attended the ninth staging of the Ocean Style Fashion Showcase right here in my home town MONTEGO BAY (aka Jamaica’s 2nd city)! Major fashion based events almost always take place in Kingston. So year after year I look forward to the Ocean Style Weekend because for the past 9 years, founder Douglas Gordon has kept it’s home right here in Montego Bay.
For my gals & gents who may be a little lost, the Ocean Style weekend is an annual event of parties, fun, fashion and celebs! Ocean Style has built a notable reputation for hosting an array of local and international celebrities and this year was no different! We were among stars like, ‘Blackish’ actor, Anthony Anderson, ‘Victoria Secret Model’ Selita Ebanks, George Lopez, Vivica Fox, Beenie Man, Christopher Martin, Frankie Muniz, ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Don Benjamin and Liane V.
Unfortunately, I forgot to charge my camera so I was unable to capture what went down at the show. Silly Me! Luckily I did manage to take photos of my outfit before the fashion show (& before the sun went in, whew!).
The weather in Jamaica has finally started to drop (well mostly during the nights). So now I can finally pull out all my duster coats and get them ready to be put on heavy rotation! That was my little hint to let you know you may be seeing me in dusters, cardigans and lightweight coats more often. It’s hot all year round in Jamaica so when a cold front sends ‘relatively’ chilly weather our way I seize the moment and layer!
I spotted this bronze duster combo on Missguided a few months ago and knew I had to get my hands on it. It was the perfect summer to fall transitional piece and the bronze hues made me want it even more. Since the night of the fashion showcase was forecasted to be chilly I slipped into this slinky duster and styled it with the matching pants and strappy nude heels. Underneath, I wore a nude lace bralet to add a sexy punch to my look. Plus if I got hot at the event I could also easily slip the duster off with no worries.
