WHCD Weekend: Rented the dresses and all!

Michelle Obama donned a long Halston dress at the White House Correspondents Dinner the same designer I chose to wear too! Hers was probably a gazillion dollars where mine cost only$75bucks. HOW you ask? I RENTED it.

Yep-   It’s my new favorite thing. Renting dresses and jewelry from Rent-the-Runway.com. There’s designers fit for the First Lady you can rent for a fraction of the cost. I mean- some are only $25!  Not only did I rent the Jet Black Halston for the party night.. I got a Lela Rose dress for brunch the next day.

This is how it works. You choose the 4 day span to rent your dress for time to get it, wear it and mail it back. They give you all you need. Oh and here’s a perk- you can choose a second size for free! The Halston halter was $455 but I rented it for $75. I also rented the this $545 Dannijo cuff.. for $45.

Busy baby GAGA

Adora is such a trooper. She made the rounds with a day that started with an early brunch with my AOII sisters at Clyde’s in Ashburn. The place was really neat. My friend Jen told me the entire restaurant was made out of old barnes. Then it was off to DC to The Heights for an afternoon brunch with some of my former TV co-workers. That’s where we ran into WUSA producer Jessica Glasser who just had a baby too.. little Maya! We weren’t done yet. When I arrived for my hair appointment with the fabulous James Cornwell.. he exclaimed “OMG it’s baby Gaga” – referring to my baby tucked inside her stroller. It was hilarious.

Together again!

Fit for a legacy!

Then we were off to DC to meet up with some former co-workers from news stations elsewhere!

Oh Snap! Sorority Girls Go WILDFIRE

Like the rose in the summertime a simple email invite to brunch blossomed into a beautiful thing: An AOII reunion. It’s been (cough cough) years since I graduated from George Mason and said farewell to some of my best friends from some of the best years of my life.

How nice it was to see the baby pandas (now with real babies of their own-or on the way) again. What better way to re-light the loyal spark than at WILDFIRE.

The gathering at Tysons Galleria restaurant was perfect for us A-O-Piggies. On the Club Brunch menu… eggs benedict, baked maple french toast, applewood smoked bacon, potatoes and fresh fruit! Executive Chef and frequent 9NEWS guest Steven Lukis got ’major snaps’ from the sisters. Shout out to my dad (a former IIOA- our sorority’s sweetheart) for playing photographer for all of us again!
