This week leaves something to be desired in the warm and sunny department and I can't help but think back to Jamaica which feels like it was years ago (but really was just weeks). I bought this dress below at a small shack on the side of the road in Negril. I try my best to buy sustainable, organic, or recycled clothing whenever I can, but the next best option is undoubtedly buying from local artisans. Supporting local designers and artists (in your own neighborhood or beyond) helps promote regional trade and embrace local aesthetics.
I bought this dress from a dude named BeEasy. Yes, that was his name. And he absolutely was. Irie mon. He ran the shop and his sister hand made all the dresses. I can't wait until the weather warms up again and I can rock this on the streets of Park Slope!
