Style Insider

It was an honor to be featured in Northern Virginia Magazine’s May issue as a Style Insider!  Not only can you read about some of my fashion and beauty must-haves but find out more about the annual DC-based charity event so near and dear to my heart, which I am proud to serve as Co-Chair once again of, the St. Jude Heart of Fashion.   (Originally slated to happen May 19th, but because of the current times we decided to postpone until Spring 2021.)

But don’t worry we will get through this together and gather once again for an extraordinary event held on the gorgeous grounds of The Plaza at CityCenterDC followed by another fantastic after-party at The Conrad Washington DC and raise funds to support the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, because childhood cancer doesn’t stop and neither will I.

XOXO

Quick note about the skin care: I truly can’t say enough about Biologique Recherche having been a customer for almost a decade now – it’s simply the best.   The first few years I began using, I used to have to shop through their NY distributor but now I can purchase Biologique Recherche (BR) products through a trusted site Rescue Spa.  My advice – go to a trained spa that carries this brand and their aestheticians have been trained – to get a custom BR facial and from their your aestheticians will be able to recommend which products are best for your skin type.  Two of my favorite locals spas carry BR:  The Mandarin Oriental in DC is the only spa I know of that has this set-up and in VA, The Salamander in Middleburg just welcomed BR in to their line-up, good move!  SO excited to visit again once they reopen!

On-Air Great Day Washington & My LBD

HOF2019_GreatDayWash

Last week I had the pleasure of going on-air with the ladies of Great Day Washington at CBS Studios talking about the St. Jude Heart of Fashion alongside one of my fellow Co-Chairs, Stef Woods.  It was so wonderful to be able to share all things about my journey with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and share the exciting details for the 2019 Heart of Fashion taking place this Friday, May 17th, on the gorgeous, open-air Plaza of CityCenterDC.

Many of you have been asking so I’m telling – my black dress is the Leather Belt Pencil Dress by Karen Millen.  It’s completely SOLD OUT but you can request to be notified via email of when it’s back in stock and once it is – buy it!  It’s truly one of my all-time favorite black dresses.

XOXO
