When I lived in Jamaica, time minus 4 years ago, I so badly wanted a pair of Bridget Sandals. Fresh out of college in 2003, I saved enough money to buy a pair and was discouraged by a friend not to. ....it wasn't worth it she said! Should have never listened to her.
Meet Bridget Sandals. Jamaican fashion staple for the uber fabulous and 'buy jamaican aficionado'. Hand crafted leather that pre-dates the current gladiator trend. The original Rastaman and root girls wear.
In Jamaica a couple days ago, I missed the opportunity to stop in to her store because of the conference. Royally pissed, I counted by loss and was moving on when I saw that they were sold in the airport. Nothing like sandals shopping at 6am!!
Look at her featured here for sneak peek of the production and interview and full review and a buffet of pictures here.
A pair will set you back $75 ( Jamaican $6,000) I consider it an investment Jamaica small business industries and myself!!
I bought the iconic rose pair in orange...I plan to open them on my birthday in 12 days and act all surprised.
Check out the tutorial on how to wear.
be good. do better. look your best.
