The Magic WAS Real!



For this past weekend’s Hope for Annabel event, The Magic WAS Real and we raised over $800,000 for Annabel which will help her fight her battle against Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC) and find a treatment to cure this rare and severe neurological disease!

I opted for this beautiful Chiara Boni La Petite Robe gown in a gorgeous Barolo wine color – the perfect fall evening gown color and surprisingly coordinated perfectly with the backdrop.  :o)


Paired the gown with these beautiful Dolce & Gabana earrings from Net-a-Porter, Manolo Blahniks and Saint Laurent clutch.


It’s always refreshing to break away from pairing everything with the traditional black – go for something new and fresh like a nude or monochromatic to mix up your looks and get more wear out of your gowns!  :o)
