The first Tacky Tuesday Post. Pretty tame compared to future outfits.
When I quit drinking almost 2 years ago (October 7, 2013), I needed to find ways to entertain myself. Living on a tiny island in the Caribbean definitely has its perks, but having an endless list of activities is not one of them. I have panic attacks when I'm snorkeling, so any kind of diving or water activities are usually out. I've tried the whole Stand Up Paddle Boarding thing and it's fun, but it hasn't stuck yet. Plus, SHARKS. And shattering my wrist in February left me with a little bit of pain (slight minimization of the excruciating pain I'm still in on some days), so I'm unable to do much of anything at the moment. I'll just stick to Yoga Nidra.
My only day off from work used to be on Tuesday, so in order to keep myself entertained and sober, I started going to the clothing shops here on Grand Cayman and modeling their latest fashions on my Instagram page, @travelingwildwoman!
Let me explain fashion on a tiny Caribbean Island. EVERYTHING is shipped in on containers. Things take weeks to get here, sometimes months, and sometimes they just don't even make it. Five months later I'm still waiting on some books to be delivered. They're basically lost at sea. I'm not sure who does the buying or how they find the clothes that they bring on the island, but it's like they found a storage unit from 1990 and thought they'd hit a fucking gold mine!!
What started off as a way for me to not drink or go to the beach bars has turned into a one-woman fashion show. And stay tuned, because there is a meetup planned!! Tacky Tuesday is coming to life!!
Well that escalated quickly. My second Tacky Tuesday.
This is one of my favorites! I've often thought of going back to actually buy it. I wish you could see the gold accents in real life. Breathtaking.
It was like an ice locker in there!!
Why did we ever stop wearing shoulder pads? They're so...flattering.
Tacky Tuesday on the Road: Seattle Edition.
Now be a TIGER!!! Trying out my modeling moves.
I think someone misunderstood the American slang term for 'fly' as in, "I want a fly dress."
Mesh armpits!! Genius!
Ok. If this was in a solid color I actually would have bought this. The neon blue and animal print was a bit much for me.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Shit got weird that day.
Shopping for a dress to wear to a friends beach wedding. Too much or nah?
This is filed under 'Hideous Pantsuit'.
It's hot here, so I really appreciate all the opportunities to wear the least amount of clothing as possible, but still look classy.
