HOF_Logo_Final2

We are less than 1 month away from the St. Jude Heart of Fashion (HOF)!

Saturday, September 12 || 11:30AM – 2:00PM

Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie

Join me and a fabulous crowd of attendees as we unite together for a day of fashion and philanthropy to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

St. Jude leads the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.  Located in Memphis, Tennessee, the center is at the cutting-edge of the latest medicine and research in life-threatening pediatric diseases, such as cancer, all while freeing families from the biggest burden in getting life-saving healthcare: the cost.

Events like the HOF are so important to the continued success of St. Jude because the center receives the majority of it’s funding from generous donors.   With a $2 million a day hof1operating cost, every dollar counts and the results are evident today as St. Jude has increased the survival rates for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) from 4% (in 1962) to 94%.

Summer Fashion Series Continues

It’s here… the next show in April Yvonne’s Signature Style Series, partnered with the Capella Georgetown, D.C., featuring Calypso St. Barth will occur on May 14th from 12pm – 2pm on the Rooftop Lounge of the hotel.

MORE: Get Tickets

On the heels of a sold-out show in March with Elie Tahari, April has brought in one of her favorite luxury resort wear brands right in time for the warmer weather! “Calypso St. Barth is a must-go for me personally and for my clients because they have perfect pieces to pack for warm weather getaways and I always find beautifully unique items,” said April.

So what is it you ask? Well, it all started when April wanted to bring a portion of what she experiences during Fashion Week in New York here to DC, so she created the Style Series, where by partnering with designers and luxury brands, April conducts sold-out fashion events allowing her following to experience first-hand her inherent passion and devotion to fashion. In addition to being one of DC’s top fashion stylists, April is also the Resident Stylist at the Capella DC, so this partnership was a match made in heaven for her series.

The Calypso St. Barth show will take place on the exclusive Rooftop of the Capella DC, which offers stunning views of our beautiful city…the perfect backdrop for the informal presentation April will conduct showcasing some of her favorite looks from Calypso St. Barth’s latest collection as guests enjoy a delicious lunch and cocktail from the hotel’s restaurant, The Grill Room.

Following, guests will be able to shop on-site all the looks April presents during the show and receive on-hand fashion advice from April and representatives from Calypso St. Barth.

Plus, each ticket purchase qualifies you in for a chance to win some AMAZING raffle prizes, like: a Calypso St. Barth dress, valued at $495; a Beauty Class for you and 5 friends at Blue Mercury Georgetown; brunch for two at The Grill Room; or a 1-hour personal shopping trip with April Yvonne.

Finally, a portion of the ticket proceeds will benefit a charity that is very near and dear to April – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, whose mission is to find a cure for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases through research and treatment and where no family every pays St. Jude for anything.

Here’s a peek at some of the looks you will see and shop at the show:

From their we made our rounds to Dean & Deluca, Nectar Skin Bar, Intermix  and more. We enjoyed Citronelle’s fashion show and great wining and dining at Peacock Cafe’ after hours.  Check out more pictures from DC’s most fashionable night!

Where the beef… meets broadcast

Shawn, Me and Elaine with Chef Philippe Reininger

The weather was perfect for an afternoon lunch with the news gals here in DC. This time we gathered at the new J&G Steakhouse on 15th and Pennsylvania. As we enjoyed appetizing fried calamari and rice cracker crusted tuna we laughed about being moms and the new “Go the ___ to Sleep” book that’s all the rave these days amongst parents. When it was entree’ time we were impressed to find out that the steakhouse is vegan friendly! A couple of the gals had no problem ordering. Halibut in a scallion-spicy chili sauce was a popular pick this day. I was also happy to see they have Sips & Bites from 5-7pm on weekdays where you can get smaller portions of their dishes paired with wine at the wine bar.

It was also great to chit chat with cityshopgirl turned radio host Kelly Collis who recently helped launch the new morning show on 94.7 FRESH FM. Shout out to Eun Yang for arranging the get together… really enjoyed catching up with all the girls at the table.. Anita Brikman, Lesli Foster, Elaine Reyes and Shawn Yancy!
