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.
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!
I was honored to be featured in this editorial piece in the May issue of Modern Luxury DC Magazine walking through my day-of rituals as I prepared to host the 2019 St. Jude Heart of Fashion at CityCenterDC! Thank you so much DC Magazine – shout out to Kristen Schott for doing the piece so beautifully and bringing awareness to a cause so near and dear to my heart, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! And to Greg Powers – you’re an amazing photographer!
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.
I would like to cordially to invite you to join me this Thursday, December 22nd at Intermix Georgetown for a Holiday Shopping Soiree benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Come out and shop for some fabulous frocks for your holidays party and/or pick up something gorgeous for your friends and family and 10% of every purchase will go directly to St. Jude! Fashion and philanthropy going hand-in-hand, what better way to shop!
Oh, and I will be there to provide styling tips to all who attend!
If you can’t make it in to the event, no worries, we’ve got you covered! Simply head in to the store anytime between Dec. 15th and the eve of the event to pick out your pieces and they won’t ring you until the 22nd which means your purchase will go towards the overall grand fundraising total! :o)
St. Jude has a mind-blowing $2.2 million per day operating cost which is why events like this play such an important role in ensuring they can continue to lead the way in the way the world understand, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other pediatric diseases. And since the majority of funding comes from generous public donors, every dollar counts, which means your purchase – no matter how big or small – matters!
