Happy New Year Everyone!
I hope you all brought in the new year in a fun and exciting way! I spent Christmas with my best friend Nedra in New York, then headed home afterwards. She bought me the most beautiful vintage Hermés scarf. We’ll get to that in a minute, but first, I spent New Year’s Eve with my family. After my mother’s health scare at the end of the year, there was no place I’d rather be. I had a blast with my family too. We played music and ate delicious Jamaican food that my brother made. I swear, he’s one of the best cooks! He’s second to my mom, of course, but definitely a close second. I also decided to take some much needed time away from the blog. As much as I love this venue, there are times when I feel the need to step away. It’s important for me to step back and remember why I started doing this in the first place. This year is going to be a LOT of fun. I plan on doing more culturally focused posts. I named this blog StushiGal Style primarily because I wanted to focus on style from my point of view. I also wanted to bring light to my culture and all of the things I love about it. I plan to do more of that this year. You can also expect to see more travel related posts. I have tons of travel planned for this year including a trip home to Jamaica that I can’t wait for!
As for today, the emphasis is on timeless luxury. When I think of some of my favorite luxury brands, Hermés is literally the first name that comes to mind. It’s one of those brands that needs no introduction. As a matter of fact, just like Tiffany, the orange Hermés box is all you need to see to know what it is. This scarf is so sophisticated that it would look good with anything. But for today I decided to go with an elegant wrap dress. I’ve had this dress for years and it remains one of my favorites. Wrap dresses are easy to wear and look absolutely gorgeous all by themselves. Adding my beautiful vintage Hermés scarf was a fantastic bonus!
