Calypso St. Barth

Last week I was introduced to an amazing brand called Calypso St. Barth. How this fabulous style nugget was able to fly below my fashion radar, I have no idea, but now that it's penetrated my force field, it's not likely to disappear. Launching in early 90's, Calypso St. Barth boasts pieces from it's namesake collection as well as carefully selected gems from luxurious international designers. 

Everything about this brand exudes opulence, but it's tamed with an elegance of ease that makes it less ostentatious. Calypso St. Barth utilizes the most luxurious materials to create amazing clothing and accessories. Stepping into their boutique last Wednesday was like entering into a virtual wonderland of bauble bliss. I was greeted by hostess Trina Small of The Baby Shopaholic and fellow bloggers Laura Nay &Lexi Felder all styled in Calypso St. Barth. One thing that amazed me about the store was the range of clothing.

Although the boutique has a bohemian feel, the injection of ornately beaded tops, sequin dresses and glimmering jewels, makes it anything but casual. The eclectic mix of cashmere, fur, leather and many other luxurious materials was like stimulation overload. I was slightly to moderately disappointed they didn't carry plus sizes, but overall, my appreciation for the beauty & craftsmanship of all of their treasures hampered my reservations. 

In addition to offering amazing adornments for your body, you can also bedeck your home in the luxury that is Calypso St. Barth. Available in select stores and online, you can browse a sumptuous collection of bedding, furniture, tableware and art. Add some of their amazing candles into the mix and you can recreate the feel of your favorite island bungalow. 

If you are yearning to update your wardrobe with a little international, island flair, give Calypso St. Barth a try. Check them out online at or visit your local boutique. I am now a total fan and can't wait to add some items to my arsenal. Special thanks to Trina Small and the whole crew at Calypso St. Barth Atlanta for putting on a great event. 

See you on the front row!
