Artist Spotlight: Jessica Durrant

Jessica Durrant popped up on my Instagram. I am a huge fan of fashion illustrators and they always jump out at me. However, a different aspect of Jessica’s art caught my attention. She has a series of silhouettes that are all like double exposures except she’s painted them with nature.

I think that these would be especially beautiful on a gallery wall.

You can pop over to Jessica’s store here to snag these and see more of her work.

The Lost Tribe 2019 slayage

Carnival band launch season is here. I find that my news feed is almost always littered with carnival costumes. If it’s not band launch season then some island or country has carnival and you just couldn’t run away from it even if you wanted to.

Click here to take a step back and look at the slayage that The Lost Tribe gave us last year. Every year I find myself thinking that if I were to play mas then it would be with The Lost Tribe because their costumes are always so well designed and executed. I live for carnival design that is done well, and that creatively borrows references. This year, the Lost Tribe pays homage to a culture that is across the Caribbean and is a huge part of the West Indian history.

Take a look at these pictures, they exude carnival and never once use a feather. Wow, right? As this post goes live, a few sections have already sold out and it hasn’t even been 30 days since band launch. I cannot wait to see what a parade of this would look like!

Currently Coveting: Lucite and Transparencies

I found lots more pieces that I liked but it’s tough trying to make a collage of clear things.


Get these lucite hoops at Baublebar.

Crazy Rich Asians, the movie

from slate.com

I have been waiting on this movie to make it’s debut since I read the first novel a few years ago and liked it! I googled the novel right as I was done and found out that they would be making a movie and ever since then it’s just been one big waiting game for me.

The movie did not disappoint me. I am the type of person that reads books and then goes to see the movies like The Twilight series. Although, I do not like any of the Harry Potter movies as they leave out way too much detail. The reason why movies tend to leave out details is because it would make them a 12 hour ordeal but I enjoyed reading Crazy Rich Asians so much that I was prepared to sit for 12 hours to watch the movie. Yes, 12 hours is an exaggeration. Read More
