Bronze Gown | The Orchid Foundation

This hair really makes me want to wear any color thats in the gold family such as bronzes as well as browns so I had to throw on a bronze evening gown. I recently had the pleasure of attending a silent auction and I was so excited about it because all the proceeds go to The Orchid Foundation which is deeply rooted in empowering young women age 14-18 in underprivileged neighborhoods through mentorship. The foundation caters to skilled and driven young ladies and I was so excited to be surrounded by their positivity and love.

I’ve had this gown for a year and this hair made me excited to whip it out for the evening.

It was a pleasantly warm fall day that ended with rain but it was still very perfect to wear this dress.

The dress was tight at the top but looser towards the bottom making my size 6 body squeeze into this Nicole Miller size 4 dress.


I accessorized with bronze and brown necklaces, gold earrings and shoes and placing Fenty Beauty’s Trophy Wife at the high points of my face kept me glowing.

I’m so proud of my friend, Mary Dyánn for being on the board of the Orchid Foundation! Her great effort and contribution led to this silent auction being a success. Ron Contarsy portraits, autographed items by some of the Django Unchained cast and crew, and Quentin Tarantino’s signed Oscar-winning script from Inglorious Basterds were just a few of the items that were auctioned off leading to an amazing $12,000 being raised that night! There are other items being auctioned off at their eBay store until further notice.

It was also great catching up with my dear friend Sourabh Sharma.
