Helping the innocent

In my job I have seen some pretty unbelievable things. Many of them involve children. Physical, mental and sexual abuse is happening in homes all around us. It’s hard to think about but for the innocent children it cannot be ignored. When I learned about Safe Spot and how it provides a safe haven for young victims in Fairfax County I knew it was a group I had to support. They are so passionate about helping these victims. In my eyes, they are real heroes. I was honored to emcee their annual Passion for Fashion charity fashion show at Bloomingdale’s at Tysons Corner. Safe Spot is always looking for people to join their mission. Get more information here at (Photos by Jan Miller)

Pecos is a service dog that helps children feel at ease at the center.




The Safe Spot crew– AMAZING women!



My awesome girlfriends Amy and Kristen! So great to see them there!

Join me Sept 12th: St. Jude’s Heart of Fashion

This is a really great event! If you can make .. would love to see you!


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%.

Tickled Pink: Mom & Daughter Fashion Show

Life, Lilly and the Pursuit of Happiness! You could feel the Palm Beach brand’s motto a million times over at Tickled Pink 8… an annual mother-daughter tea held at the Fairmont Hotel on M Street. Biscuits, scones, egg and salmon sandwiches and unlimited mimosas were on hand. We took part in the Lilly fashion show wearing prints provided by The Pink Palm.

Other news mommies who walked the colorful catwalk included 9NEWS’ Lesli Foster and daughter Jordan and NBC4’s Eun Yang and little Carys.  It was Adora’s first fashion show.. and she proved modeling is tough work. The poor baby passed out before our final walk to close the show. Great photos by Kipp Burgoyne, Alex Naini and Lesli Foster.

harth Opening: Hot Eats, Cool Show

The storms couldn’t put a damper on the red hot grand opening of harth, the new signature restaurant at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. We were greeted by fire breathers and dancers. The red carpet came out for the celebration that drew hundreds of hungry Washingtonians. Guests enjoyed a sampling of what harth has to offer- food that supports local farmers! LOVIN THAT! One of my faves: Cheddar and Chives Popovers made with poached eggs, sundried tomato hollandaise and bacon jam. Loved the contrast of wood fire burning ovens and dripping ice bars in the lobby. SAKS presented an eye-pleasing show with this summer’s most stylish bikinis and big hats. The cool finale– two ice carvers jammin’ out while creating a sculpture for the audience. Loved having my sister Tricia who is visiting from Texas join me. She was a great help with Adora while I shot video.

Lickin' Cancer

Survivors brought their pets and I brought my 2 legged baby to the 2nd Annual Critters for the Cure Fashion Show! It was an amazing night where cancer survivors showed their beauty and bravery as they took to the catwalk with their canine companions. The highlight of the evening was when several area doctors were honored by CFC founder Clancy Kress. Kress created Critters for the Cure after losing a dear friend to cancer.
