A Shaving Success!

Union Station hosted more emotion than it could handle when 46 mothers of children with cancer united. The 46 Mommas took it all of the top at the 2nd annual Shave for the Brave benefiting the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Why 46? Because that’s how many kids are diagnosed each weekday with some form of cancer.

Arlington’s Danielle Leach who lost her son to brain cancer in 2007 help organize the event. Celebrity shavers Arch Campbell, Andrea Roane, John Kelly, Alison Starling, Natasha Barrett, Tommy McFly and Mary Amons came out to lend their helping hand too. Radio personalities Bob Madigan and Mike O’Meara did more than just clip the momma’s hair.. inspired by the night they shaved THEIR heads too.PR at Partners provided the stylists for the event. After they lost their locks the ladies got makeovers and bald and beautiful photos by Tim Coburn.

Fashion’s Night Out

Pounding Rain, 2 and half hours sitting in traffic.. nothing could keep me away from Fashion’s Night Out. I joined good girlfriends to toast FNO Georgetown at the VIP reception held at L2. 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!

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.

PHOTOS: Journalists party in style

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.

Princess Stacie? Also revealed at the party: Housewife Stacie Turner is a Princess now in Nigeria. Stacie’s husband Jason said it recently happened after Stacie reunited with her birth father. Stacie was adopted through the D.C. adoptive system and recently undertook a difficult, yet ultimately successful, search to find her birth father.
