Fashion for Paws 2013

Nearly $700,000 was raised at a night filled with furry friends dressed to the nines! It was Fashion for Paws 2013, an show stopping production that included many familiar faces of DC and their pooches. I had a great time walking the runway with little Inko. I would’ve brought Atticus again but these days he’s so strong and being me so pregnant I was afraid I’d have a tough time wrangling him on stage.
I was thrilled to be part of the Lilly Pulitzer part of the show. The evening featured fashions from shops you’d find at Tysons Galleria. E! News’ Ashlan Gorse and Pamela Sorensen did an outstanding job as the night’s emcee and Mistress of Ceremonies. Special thanks to Richard and his friends for coming out to show the support! We were really tired for the show this morning.. but the great cause was worth the no sleep! Photos by Rich Kessler Photography and Travis Vaughn

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.
