Chicsters craving a respite from New York’s so-called spring temps found themselves at Miss Lily’s 7A in Alphabet City last night. The reason? Celebrating Nicole Miller‘s Spring 2015 ad campaign, staring Christina Caradona, the blogger behind Trop Rogue. The images and video to accompany the collection were totally tropical, this was quite a fitting setting for a celebratory dinner. Despite grumblings about the restaurant’s far-east location, revelers still got down with the eve’s Jamaican vibes. (Those pineapple-accented margaritas definitely helped out…)
The crowd included Jackie Cruz from Orange Is The New Black, stylist Zerina Akers, model Gabriella Lopez, and WeWoreWhat blogger Danielle Bernstein, all of whom were decked out in Miller’s vibrant threads. In between Instagram shots Caradona introduced her campaign reel, which was followed by similar ones from bloggers Sonya Esman of Class is Internal and Kimberly Pesch of Eat Sleep Wear. But once the crowd sat down, the party really began: They noshed on grilled corn with jerk mayo and coconut, jerk chicken and pork, plus plenty of spicy jerk sauce to smother grilled shrimp skewers. All washed down with more of those margaritas (and interrupted with even more Instagram shots hashtagged with #NMOuttaHere) it was truly an evening of delicious escape.
