Laura Narayansingh is an architect and Monday Wear designer who has not disappointed since her first Monday Wear collection debut. HER – the LNMW19 debuted two nights ago and some of the pieces have already sold out. Can you believe that? I would definitely consider that a sign of a successful designer!
I started in with a series of shifts earlier on this year. With each shift, I kept the silhouette very basic and changed the details of the dress. Shift dresses are actually defined by their very simple silhouettes and if you want to know more about their characteristics you can check out a previous outfit post here.
For today’s shift, the simple detail I added was a trim of frill. I thought it made the silhouette a little more playful while adding length for ladies who want a little more coverage. I paired the dress with statement earrings in a style called soutache. Krystle DeSantos, a fellow Guyanese blogger who is into accessories and vintage style introduced me to them. Read More
I worked on a series of a few dresses falling into a shift dress line and I will slowly be sharing each one with you. In case you didn’t know, the shift dress has a pretty basic shape and a distinct set of characteristics. Shift dresses are characterized by a classic silhouette usually being sleeveless, having no defined waist, and stopping about the knee. They definitely make for the perfect mini and are very feminine.
KTReed has long been one of my biggest sources of inspiration. From her feminine, fun and flirty designs to her sewing studio, I just take it all in.
I was super excited to get my hands on one of her pieces and my favorite thing about this skirt is definitely the button details. I get to control exactly how much or how little leg I want to share.
In case you didn’t know, Suriname is to the east of Guyana. A little history – Suriname, Guyana, and French Guiana were all called Guiana a very long time ago but then the different European monarchies came to an agreement and split the country up into three – Dutch, British, and French Guianas. Eventually, British Guiana acquired their independence becoming Guyana and Dutch Guyana became Suriname after their independence. Each speaks their language of their last reigning crown.
