LLS Woman of the Year Candidate Hosts Fashion for a Cause

 

Sanam Toossi continued her campaign for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Woman of the Year last night through an evening filled with fashion, fun and charity. Toossi hosted a fashion show called “Fashion for a Cause” at Josephine’s in Washington D.C.

The event was sponsored by NOVA Fashion Week and featured lots of spring dresses and other spring looks by DC fashion designer House Rossil and up and coming student designer Samuel Ugglee.

All of the proceeds of the event went to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Toossi’s goal is to raise $100,000 for the cause and last night’s fashion show was one of several fundraising events to reach her goal.

Celebrating The Royals!

Celebrating The Royals!

Tiaras, Cupcakes, Champagne & Jewelry 

No British weather for this party. The sun shone as more than 40 princesses flocked to the Old Town Alexandria jewelry boutique Mystique last Thursday evening for Mystique's first-ever Princess Party and to toast Will and Kate on the eve of their nuptials. The tiaraed guests sipped champagne and tried on rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings adorned with diamonds, sapphires, and more, all befitting royalty.

Mystique owner Elizabeth Mandros, who is celebrating 20 years in business this year (and her birthday as well), was the belle of the ball. "We had such fun," Elizabeth exclaimed, "It was a perfect night." And her guests agreed. Iris Perry, of Montgomery Village, Maryland, "felt like a princess."

Gift Ideas For Mother's Day

Just as the temperature begins to show signs of heating up, and my flower beds begin to show signs of life beyond winter, I found the most gorgeous collection of silk photo albums that are simply too elegant to forget. And in fact, I was invited to a fabulous black tie event last weekend at my friend, Lynda's home (yes, her home!) and I so wish that I had come across these works of art before I settled on something lovely as a hostess gift-- but not nearly as special.
