Hey all! Thanks for stopping by Baie Rouge!
I created this blog as a way to express my obsession with fashion, style and design. I've always been particular about what I wear and how I express myself through clothing, and I wanted a way to share the things I love and define my aesthetic. If I had to describe my style, it would be a whole bunch of contradictions: minimalistic but bold; elegant but eclectic; classic, yet funky. I'm all about comfort, and I'm always trying to find new ways to dress up sweatpants and dress down a silk slip.
I hope this blog will reflect my tendencies towards non-consumerism, environmentalism, and body-positivity. I try to only buy things I need. I prefer spending more money on an item I love, rather than having a wardrobe full of "fast fashion" that's inexpensive, but takes a toll on workers and environments around the world. And in terms of the imagery on this site, I will strive to show images that reflect artistic choices and inclinations, and not just a conventionally beautiful model wearing nothing interesting.
The title of this blog comes from the name of a beach on the island of St. Martin. My second home. It's a place that inspires me and calms me. Just, like, FYI so you're not wondering.
