A BERMUDAFUL NIGHT: THE COACH BERMUDA FASHION FESTIVAL GALA
SO sorry for our brief posting hiatus! We just got back from a few Summer getaways with limited access to posting abilities but are excited to say that have lots and lots of new content to share with you in the weeks to come!!
Today’s post is dedicated to an amazing event we attended during said Summer "hiatus"- The Coach Bermuda Fashion Festival Black Tie Gala. We are honored and proud to say that we got the opportunity to attend this amazing event that served as the finale of 2016's week long Bermuda Fashion Festival honoring two influential Bermudians for their achievements in fashion.
We are even prouder to share who these two honorees were!
1. Our very own father, Ian Bickley: President of Coach International - who was surrounded by several of his fellow supportive Coach colleagues that evening *yes, he was born and raised in Bermuda, it's pretty cool*
2. The very beautiful and talented, Shinia Torini: Fashion Editor & Celebrity Stylist
Check out the looks we chose to wear and some of the spectacular moments captured from the night. Special thanks to BermyNet.com for helping capture some of these moments and the biggest congratulations to the two honorees!! :)
I've honeslty have never felt as amazing as I felt in my look for the Bermuda Fashion Festival Gala. FIrstly, tanks to Strands & Clarins Bermuda for my gorgeous high bun and perfect makeup. I paired this look with the most stunning piece of clothing I think I've ever worn, Philipp Plein's 'Ronin' floral printed jumpsuit and a beautiful pair of strappy black gladiator heeled sandals made by Nasty Gal. Topping off this busy look, I wore one of my fave simple black Twiglight's Fancy chokers and the mini black Coach 'Swagger' wristlet, which also serves as a long mini bag or a clutch. I cannot tell you how amazing the style of this jumpsuit made me feel, I a huge jumpsuit fan and this is probably my favorite jumpsuit that I've worn to date. The strappy low heeled shoes were easy to dance in and drew attention to the shorter side of my jumpsuit, giving it some serious spunk. I had such an amazing night and, as corny as this sounds, felt like the belle of the ball sporting this rockin' outfit!! Hehe :) P.S. If it weren't for the help of some good old fashion tape, my look would've been a complete disaster. I had to wear tons of it to hold up the deep plunge neck of my jumpsuit...gotta do what ya gotta do. Always remember...fashion tape is a MUST HAVE.
// Fashion Tape - A MUST HAVE!!!
For the Bermuda Fashion Gala I wanted to keep my look simple and not take away from the honoree (my Dad). I found this Jonathan Simkhai one shoulder jumpsuit on Intermix and immediately knew it was the perfect look. Shoutout to Jonathan Simkhai... he has absolutely become one of my favorite designers. His stuff is so effortless and chic and I'm fully OBSESSED. For shoes I went with my Stuart Weitzman wild thing sandals. These sandals gave me no pain the whole night plus they have embroidered flowers on the back on the heal but sadly they were covered by my jumpsuit. I pulled the whole look together with these chunky Rosantica fringed orange and gold earrings. They really gave my look that pop of color and attitude I needed to complete the look :)
BIGGEST CONGRATULATIONS TO DADDY & SHIONA ON THIS AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT!!
