My Darling Baby Jeff “J Enriquez” of One80 Salon served me a royal beat for the DC Lottery Red Carpet Experience.  He did such a fabulous job that I found myself staring in the mirror pouting because I didn’t want to wash my face before bed.  It wasn’t until I looked back at the pictures […]

I got LOTS of questions regarding the outfit I wore for the DC Lottery’s Red Carpet Experience.  I knew there would be burlesque at Sax Restaurant and Lounge so I decided to play on that theme and allow for much more cleavage than I’d usually show.  Since we were partying and doing the night club […]

Congrats to the winners of DC Lottery’s Twitter Tunes Trivia.  We rolled out the red carpet and showed them a night out on the town.  The CW 50’s Arsenio Hall Party Bus picked them up at the DC Lottery Headquarters.  We ROCKED THE BUS around town until we arrived at Sax Restaurant and Lounge.  We […]

Brahmin’s new ‘Arden’ satchel from their La Scala collection has everything I love in a bag: structure, quality leather, feet, and unique shape.  The price point is sweet at $375.00; a steal considering the quality and durability of Brahmin handbags.  The uniqueness of the bag makes it timesless.  Emerald green is a hot color this […]

With DC Wine Week underway (October 12th – October 19th), it’s only fitting to dedicate at least one blog to what’s probably the most loved and misunderstood alcoholic beverage-vino.    We love the taste.  We love the scent.  We love the feel.  We also love what wine symbolizes–the “upper crust” of society. There are so many different […]

This look is for the cosmopolitan man with an urban edge.  This fall it’s all about layers and texture.  The top half of this outfit says sophistication while the jeans and boots give a nice urban edge.  I created this look for Avichayil to have a night on the town in NYC.  He has been […]
