Where do you shop in St. Kitts?
I shop Laura’s Boutique, a chic shop located in the TDC Mall on Fort Street.
What are your classic ‘must have’ items of clothing in your closet?
My go-to style, whether I’m stepping out or simply going shopping for more outfits are rompers. Rompers hug me in all the right places. I also like wearing classic body con dresses, body con skirts and classy tops.
Is there a particular style of clothing or jewellery that you favour?
I love knob earrings, and the occasional hoop earrings.
What is your fashion obsession?
If I looked in your closet now, what would I see?
My closet is lined with tastefully short rompers, one or two long ones, body con dresses that accentuate my curves, skirts of different lengths and sandals.
How would you describe your evening/’heading out with the girls’ attire?
So, as you can probably already tell, my go to outfit for a night out with my girls is a romper. And occasionally a nice shirt and skirt or jean and a pair of my sandals will be night out outfit. I’m a “close to the ground” type of girl, which basically means I rock flats most of the time, but I do know when to switch it up.
What is your favourite lipstick? (Colour and brand)
I’ve recently switched my fav lippie colour: “Jasmin” is what I call her, she’s from the City Color – Be Matte line.
What perfume do you wear?
After a puff Rihanna’s Reb’l Fleur I’m ready to take on the night.
Let us in on a hair ‘secret’ tip or product that you would share with our readers?
Of course, you cannot forget about the hair, it’s the icing on the cake. I style my hair myself. My signature hair styles are Twist out or a Braid Out. And on some days my quick style, the Notorious Puff. I achieve my hair styles with three staple products, Cantu Leave In Conditioner and Coconut Styling Cream and some oils or shea butter.
