Crunch time for Fashion for Paws Models

Start your countdown! We are just 3 weeks away from DC’s elite fashion event of the year: The Washington Humane Society’s annual Fashion for Paws show.

Fundraising models like April Jones Firoozabadi have to raise $3,000 to walk their dog down the catwalk during the event. April held a charity event at Salon Daniel in McLean and raised more than 2-thousand dollars, the most money made ever in the show’s history by a single model at one event! Last year the show raised nearly $350,000 for animals in need.

Fashion for Paws will be at the National Building Museum on April 9th and expected to attend are DC’s A-List media personalities,  athletes, politicians and business leaders.

General Admission is sold out but you can still get VIP tickets at fashionforpaws.org

Tickled Pink in Potomac

I cannot even begin to tell you how overwhelmed with emotion I am with all the support I’ve gotten from friends, family and co-workers over the last 8 months. My sisters Jenny and Tricia threw me a beautiful shower at good friend Dr. Alex’s Potomac home.

It was more than perfect– it was as I told the crowd– a room filled with so much love. Wish I could post the hundreds of pictures and special moments captured by REVAMP.com’s Daniel Swartz and Rita Lawrence with Bitsy Baby Photography. Please check out their galleries. Sweet thanks to Frosting: A Cupcakery for sending devilishly good dessert. No cupcake was left behind. Shout out to the gorgeous Lauren Von Der Pool and staff with green catering company Von Der Pool Gourmet.  I didn’t learn til after the party that the ‘beef wontons’ were vegan! I would’ve never known. They were delicious!

The best part of all? Seeing so many women from different phases of my life- high school, college, SC, DC, News, philanthropy and  mamas-to-be coming together to help me celebrate my first step into motherhood. Thank you everyone from me and baby “A”. Read more about the shower at REVAMP.com where Leigh Macdonald wrote a very kind recap of the party.
