With the ever rising prices of the Carnival experience, I keep joking that there may be a market for my degree in Trinidad after all. The amount of money I have spent in the past eight years on costumes alone could probably have bought me a lovely starter collection of high end accessories which I would still have today.
As everybody knows I’m not going to be in Trinidad for Carnival this year but in all my trolling of luxury items that I can’t afford I can’t help notice how carnival-esque they can get, while, ironically, being totally inappropriate for a Carnival experience. So here I present to you my suggestions for an heiress’ Carnival kit.
DISCLAIMER: I am in no way suggesting that these are appropriate items for the average person t play mas in.
Half lashes, half jewelry, half eyewear. Yes I know that’s one and a half but these dramatic beauty looks defy the laws of Math.
The Monday Wear
Who needs to spend time and effort bloodying and burning their fingers as they glue and stud Monday wear when a studded bodysuit is so easy to find?!
A metallic cross body is the only way to store the vex money in 2013.
Forget the played out slouchy suede boots (please!) What goes out must come back in and sneakers, both flat and with invisible wedges, are still having a moment in fashion. Because of that you can find a variety of fancy shiny glittery and fashion forward kicks to match your costume.
These baubles signal the end of rushing to Wonderful World to pile up your hands with cheap bracelets which stain your arms on Monday and Tuesday (guilty).
