Cayman Island Fashion Solstice: Day 1

I just got back from an amazing 5 day trip to the Cayman Islands!
I was there for the Cayman Fashion Solstice event which was a big fashion show event.
It was hosted by super model Selita Ebanks with a celebrity appearance by IYAZ.
They also flew in a bunch of models which included some of my girls from Major,




They also brought in 10 amazing talented designers.
There's a lot to cover from this trip, so I'm breaking it up by day.

Day 1 Thursday I got up at 3am to be on a 6am flight. It was the bumpiest flight of my life. There was so much turbulence. A woman sitting behind me was balling her eyes out because she was scared. Here's a few images of the Cayman from the plane.

We were picked up from the airport in a limo.

Then it was off to lunch. I had a pea soup and salmon. Normally I hate seafood, but all the seafood I had on this trip was delicious! Matter of fact, all the food I had was delicious!

After lunch we checked into the hotel. I roomed with Kacie. From there we went straight to the beach! We stayed at the Marriott which was RIGHT on the famous 7 mile beach. The weather was super warm and the water was even warmer. The ocean was crystal clear and bright blue.

The hotel rented out jet skis. But it was super ridiculous expensive, $75 for 30mins.
So we talked the rental guy into giving us a free 5 min "try out".


After the beach it was back to the room to get ready for the welcome party.
The first part of the party was at the pool patio at the Marriott.

After some food and drinks we went off to a club called Enigma.
Once we got there a few of us, myself, Kacie, Kelly, and Gorgie headed to a back room for some Karaoke!

After a long day it was back to the Marriott for sleep.
It was really great to sleep with the balcony door open and listen to the waves.

I have 4 more days to cover. And the trip only gets better from here!

Alyssa, it was so sweet that you documented the fun times that you and your model friends had leading up to the Solstice fashion show on Saturday night. I have a special interest since Kelly of Major Models is my daughter. Thanks for sharing the nice "pics".
