Shala On Washington Street

6 years ago by

Shala wasn’t the first person I would have thought to carry a backpack at fashion week, but her recent move to St. Lucia makes it all so perfect.

I’ve always loved the way she puts pieces together – a black shift, saucy heels, and rucksack are just another combination to add to the long queue of admirable looks. Here’s a few words from Shala about her outfit…

————————-

Since I moved back to St.Lucia I’ve found myself spending a lot of time in the bush and have found a backpack makes navigating it easier as I need free hands. I wanted one that was brand-free and utilitarian, but didn’t stand out. So I thought the army navy store would be my best bet. I got it on East Houston street. 

My anklets are from some part of a car. The boys wear it here in St. Lucia and I’ve adopted it as my own now. My brother’s friend who’s a mechanic, among other things, got them for me.
