Coleen Panton Designs:: Frolic

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all doing well, can you believe it's Friday already? But that means it's time for the weekend! Yay! Today I'm  featuring a couple pieces from Coleen Panton's new collection. You guys may remember when I featured Coleen's designs here and here. As I've said before Coleen truly understands how to dress a woman's body and her finish is always on point. 

Shown above is a jersey fringed top and tribal influenced palazzo pants on this striking beauty Shadea- I'm sure the modeling agencies are going to be fighting over her soon. 

The Kris-Kross: 

Shown above in white, is a stretch cotton palazzo pants and wrap around midriff top- perfect for our tropical climate, as it is sexy and also freeing at the same time. 
I can see myself wearing it with some chunky wedges, but I can also see it being paired with flats and layered necklaces. It's always a great idea to have pieces in separates as it allows us to maximize our wardrobes! ha ha! Frugal fashionista always at it, mix and match is the key! right ladies?

You may remember this pants suit in another colour when blogger Chellan (R) wore it in our Gleaner feature The Classics, a couple weeks back- photographed next to PR Executive Tassia Stewart also wearing pants by Coleen Panton. 

Contact Coleen if you have a special event or if you would like to see more of her collection, visit and like her facebook page here.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Miranda has been a friend over the years as we have children the same ages and we live in the same town. Can I just say how much I love her work?! Love! Love! Love it! I find myself stalking her instagram gallery to see how she captures her beautiful children and finds beauty in every day life. Her photography is so gentle but oh so profound and evokes emotions that have actually brought me to tears of joy.

Hi Everybody!! 
Happy New Year!! What a great way to start off the blog this year, I'm getting phone calls and tweets that my photo from instagram just got featured on the Wendy Williams Show!! whoo hooo!!! Oh what a little hash tag can do!! 

Hope everyone is having a great day and a great year so far! I know I am. The one word that keeps coming to me this year is fruition: Realization of something desired or worked for; accomplishment.

This is the year I believe that all I have been laying foundation for the past two years will be coming to fruition. I thank all of you for supporting me in any way you have, a kind tweet, a comment on instagram and also on this blog.
May you seek the Lord first for all understanding and with all your decisions; as I do same.

 Here is the photo that made it \o/
