Kingston’s Style Diary


GIA Style Card // Diva on a Dime

Complete look: L$95. Thanks to the plethora of high quality designer freebies and cheapies out there, you don’t have to be the SL equivalent of Elizabeth Taylor to look good. Update group and in-store freebies, hunts, discerning newbie areas and store sales can hold all the style elements that a frugal fashionista may need to stock her wardrobe.

Movements like the hugely popular Fifty Linden Fridays coordinated by OMGWTF Barbecue, have further established support for affordable, quality products.

Thank you to all the designers who contribute to Fifty Linden Fridays, the Gnubie Store, hunts, sales and who offer regular update group gifts!

Hitting the Beach: Day 2 of 4 – California Sun

On day two of our beach bunny road trip, Strawberry and I wanted to hit the beach in all the vintage glory of 1960s Brigitte Bardot. Before heading to the beach, we visited our favourite shops offering vintage-style products.

All dolled up, we were ready to strut along the boardwalk, scoping out the surfers and bopping to the surf pop tunes in our heads.

Day 1: The Tide is High
Day 3: Weapon of Choice
Day 4: Montego Bay

GIA Style Card: Caribbean Cruise

@ GLANCE International Agency

With clothing and accessories that radiate with a colour vibrancy, a healthy and liberal slathering of SPF 30 sunblock is needed to walk through the doors of Emma Gilmour’s beachy clothing store, Sand Shack Surf Co. Filled with kitschy and charismatic clothing items that show off  those sunkissed limbs, Surf Co. as the product offerings definitely lend to casual, relaxed looks.

In addition to being the darling behind the splashy SC brand, Emma Gilmour designs chic products and accessories for Armidi as Hudsen Armidi – a telling display of her range of design ability.

Inspiring today’s Style Card, the Cabana dress conjures mental imagery that takes wearer’s mind away to summer scenes set against the sun-soaked backdrop of royal palms and full-bodied hibiscus bushes lining beachfront boardwalks, or along the deck of a pristine white and far-reaching cruise ship destined for an exotic port in the Tropic of Cancer.
