Hello. Thanks for caring enough to visit this page because let’s be honest, bios are boring. I kept it concise but also included a 3rd person version for “official usage.” Enjoy!
My name is Grasie Mercedes. (Yes, that’s my real name…well, almost) Like a true Latina, (I’m Dominican) I was born with 4 names: Grecia Maria Mercedes-Garcia. By the time I reached grade school, my family nickname, Grasie, was all I answered to. The Maria and Garcia were dropped (not sure how that happened) and I became simply Grasie Mercedes. I’m from NYC (Brooklyn & Manhattan to be exact) but currently reside in Los Angeles, which I love so much it hurts. I’m married (to a former MTV VJ – score!) and have 3 pets, who I want to eat because they are so cute, not because I’m a monster. I’m an actress (I live in LA, OF COURSE I’m an actress) and as you may have already guessed, a style blogger. YAY!
