The Mykonos Dress

Local designers are winning right now! And this dress is certainly proof of that. While browsing Instagram page I saw the Mykonos dress and fell in love instantly. I knew it would be perfect for my honeymoon in Greece and let me tell you, the dress was a show stopper. It was definitely the outfit that made the trip. The African print fabric and the design is simply perfection!

I knew I wanted to pair the dress with a straw bag, but it was such a challenge for me to find the ‘perfect’ starw bag. But I kept seeing the ‘Cult Gaia’ bag popping up on many of the favourite fashion bloggers Instafeed. I loved the bag, but hated the price. I didn’t think it was worth the price considering that I would only get a few wears out of it. Its definitely not your everyday bag. With that, I went on the hunt to find at least something similar. Let me tell you! I hit the jackpot on Amazon.

When the bag arrived, I got a call from my mother , “Shannon, the postman just delivered your bird cage, where yuh going with that birdcage?”. I laughed so hard! I can always depend on my mother to burst my fashion bubble. Anywho, when I finally got the bag I was shocked by the quality. It is such good quality! The bamboo was sturdy, smooth and it had a slight sheen to it. It was exactly what I needed to go with my Mykonos dress. I was so surprised at how spot on the bag was to the Cult Gaia version. I don’t think you can tell the difference. It also held up so well in my suitcase. I am in love with it.
