Mall Madness

Now I know this has nothing to do with Carnival really, but how could I resist a post about the mall at Christmas time!? I have been living at the mall this weekend, visiting both West Mall and Trincity Mall numerous times between today and yesterday. In between shopping for gifts for others (only managed to get a few) I was busy shopping for me with my Carnival wardrobe at the back of mind (guess that's where Carnival comes in!).

My quest scored me some excellent finds at Westport Body (accessories on the cheap!), Suite 16 (you do have to hunt for the good stuff) AND I just discovered Suite 16 has opened a accessory and shoe shop at Trincity.... imagine,cute sandals for $65.00!

Here are some photos of my shopping expedition at Trincity mall; for those in Trinidad check out Suite 16's new store and for those of you overseas I hope these scenes at least remind you a bit of the madness that grips Trinis, sending them into a shopping frenzy, come Christmas time:

Boots ! Boots! Boots!

Amid all the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, I made my way to Vamp yesterday as I knew someone had already collected their boots for Carnival, and when I called Natalie she was working on boots for Fireman so I went to take a look at their progress.

I met Natalie in the middle of decorating one of the "Fireman" boots, and I do like the fact that she is trying to make each one unique, but that means she has to come up with different ideas every time! On display was a pair of boots she made for "Jamette" that I found looked really good, I especially loved the tulle on the sides of the boots. Those were wedge boots and I thought they looked hot! Seeing as I did not try any wedge boots when I first placed my order, I decided to try a pair of undecorated wedge boots that just happened to be my size, and they were pretty comfortable so I changed my request to the wedge instead of flats! Luckily my boots were not in production as yet.

So in four weeks time I should be collecting my Carnival footwear, one headache out of the way, and I cannot wait to see what the final product looks like!

Here are some photos of other boots that Natalie has either finished or is working on at her shop (sorry they are so blurry, I did not realise the pics were not in focus until AFTER I downloaded them. Click on the photo for a larger view):

Two versions of boots for "Fireman", I met Natalie working on the one to the left.

"Jamette", note the Tulle on the sides, cute!
