Standing In Awe of God’s Beauty

St. Thomas beachAs the nights are getting colder in NYC, I can only stay sane by reflecting insurmountably about the blazing heat I experienced last weekend in St. Thomas.  The view of the ocean in this picture doesn’t even come close to the natural marvel itself in person.  I’m actually standing on the top of a cliff in a pool at the hotel where the wedding was held.  Just standing in awe of God’s beauty.  On a fashion note, normally I match my swimsuit pieces top and bottom, but on my last day of my mini vacation, I decide to swap my black bottoms for my purple ones which happens to my favorite color by the way.  And just to be funky, always add a print mix to a solid color; it’s more eye appealing.  Trust me. Stand out.  You won’t regret it. Be inspired:)

P.S.   Dear God, this pre-winter weather is cruel.  Have mercy on me.  Love your favorite child, Jerrica

A Detailed Back: Waldorf Astoria Edition

Hey darlings, last Thursday evening I attended the The Most Powerful Women in Banking event sponsored by American Banking held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. It was my first time coming to the Waldorf Astoria which was a marvel in itself! I had such a great time and I left so inspired as a woman. To be amongst such powerful women was an honor for me! I wasn’t even aware of these extraordinary women at this caliber in banking and finance. These women represent the change and leadership in this industry – many of these women are the CEOs and top executives of the banks we go to everyday and finance companies we invest in such as CitiMortgage, HSBC, and KeyCorp (these positions are all not held by men, contrary to beliefs!)!!! I commend these women for their drive and dedication to their work and I thank them for paving the way for other women to follow in their footsteps!

Now let’s get down to business.

Sooooo of course, you know it was a black tie event! Gowns. Tuxedos. Cocktails. The whole she-bang bang. I mean, it ISat the Waldorf Astoria, so of course everything has to be top notch which it was. The night before I freaked out prior because I didn’t have anything to wear, but then I remembered I had this little baby (the dress) in my wardrobe which was totally perfect for the occasion! Well, I wore this BEAUTIFUL black and gold dress by designer Byron Lars. I mean, this dress by itself is a beauty. I’m at a loss for words in describing this dress. It’s so detailed and pristine in beauty. Take a look for yourself.

For my hair, I decided to add some funk to it and wear it in a mild half up/down hairdo! I literally wrapped my hair in a bun all day and then I unwrapped it, held my head down, ran my fingers through the back of my hair while holding my head down and woolahhh! Effortless.

Oh and the attire would not be complete without my shoes! I decided to pair the dress with my velvet black 5in platform ankle strap heels! Honestly, the whole night I was getting more compliments on my attire than the actual women who were being nominated (literally – my dress just stood out!).

So for this season, I want to inspire you to not pick out a dress/gown/tuxedo that you would normally wear, try something with more details and more mystery. Don’t go for just a plain black dress or tuxedo. Go for something with multiple patterns, asymmetrical cuts, and illustrious details. Step outside of your comfort zone. You might surprise yourself.

Take a look at what I did, tell me what you think and be inspired 🙂

NYFW SS’15 Review: Taoray Wang

As requested and long overdue, here’s my review of designer Taoray Wang SS’15 presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week held at Lincoln Center. This was the first time showing at New York Fashion Week for the Chinese designer. A genius as a designer is the least of what’s to say about her. I had the opportunity to go backstage with her after the show and a kind woman was she. Her presence alone was meek but powerful. The collection she presented was one that consisted of distinct taste, class, pristine details, and brilliance. Her taste on the plunging neckline was exquisite. See below for pics of my favorite looks from the SS’15 Presentation. You can bet on it that I’ll be wearing her clothes. And she is definitely one to look out for! Taoray Wang. Taoray Wang. Taoray Wang. Just pure greatness.
