So I just got back from the British Virgin Islands, and wow: I had a wonderful time!
I headed down there for their Summer Sizzle fashion show, an annual display of international and local design talent. I actually co-hosted the show alongside lifestyle specialist Kenny Burns; Taraji P. Henson along with celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff were in the building to lend their talents to the festivities.
I brought Fashion Bomb photographer Karl Pierre along with me, so we have *tons* of pix from the fashion show (the recap is coming soon!). Until then, just thought I’d share a few flix from our weekend trip.
We all stayed at Surf Song villas, a quiet resort on Beach Island’s Southern Shore. I was lucky enough to be placed in the pool house, so invited everyone over on day one for an afternoon of tanning, splashing, and good old fashioned fun.
For the day, I pulled out my ‘granny’ swimsuit: a skirted Calvin Klein creation I’ve had for at least 10 years. LOL.
On Day 2, Kenny and I headed to the venue for a run through for the show later that night.
I wore my 3.1 Phillip Lim I Love Nueva York tank with cut off Zara jeans and my Christian Louboutin Impera pumps.
After a quick trip to Cane Garden Bay with my college friends, we graced the stage at the U.P. Cineplex.
I wore a Beth Richards high waisted camo print bikini I scored at TheOutnet.com, along with stacks of gold bangles from Nasty Gal.
It was a great time with amazing people! And Taraji was such a gem!
Stay tuned for an interview with her regarding her fitness routine. You’ll want to check back in!
Oh and Summer Sizzle is 100% open to the public. If you want to come back next year, learn more about it here.
