Leg of mutton dressed up as…

I well tired now and I ent even get to blog about Trinidad Carnival which is reaching its peak this weekend but I promise all you islandistas that I will get to it! Just now! Soon come! And all of that…

But I just got a quick ting to drop pun yuh from the Brit Awards night before last in London.

I… do not know what to make of this dress. I have been trying to work with Estelle and her crazy-angled dresses but …

I see what she trying to do and ting … be cutting edge and fashion forward (though since leg of mutton sleeves are actually circa the late 1800s – so can you be fashion forward if you going back over a century?) but… oh gosh man, she just looking fuh attention now.

And I think Nora here (compliments Wikipedia’s nice little entry on 1890s fashion) rocked the look much better back in 1896.

By Me

island ~ ista
From Latin -ista via Portuguese -ista
one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
