Your One Fashion Resolution for 2011

Your One Fashion Resolution for 2011

If you only have one fashion resolution for the New Year, let it be this: only buy things that make you feel fantastic. It may sound simplistic, but many times people purchase things that they are just "eh" about. Sometimes those purchases are made for very practical reasons - lack of time / money / energy, or it is just difficult to find clothing that fits correctly. But, one purchase that is just "okay" leads to more purchases that "will do"....and that leads to an entire closet of "meh" clothing. It's one of the reasons people can have an entire closet full of clothes, yet feel like they have nothing to wear.

You know you’re a Washingtonian If……

John Kelly, Washington Post Staff Writer, wrote an article a few weeks ago asking us to test our knowledge about the DC area.  Kelly asks questions ranging from how the northern snakeheads got in a Crofton pond to what outfit was the hatchet wielding man attacking motorists and others in Fairfax County was wearing.  As one who was born and raised in Washington, DC, I pretty much failed the test.

Attend the Red Carpet Premiere of Collide

Collide, the new motion picture from DMV filmmaker Master June Daguiso, will premiere this Sunday at the Burke Theater. Collide is the latest action film from the Virginia resident and martial arts expert, who also stars. The movie tells the story of three criminals from different cultures whose paths inexorably cross in the U.S. Although an indie film, Collide has been three years in the making and was partially shot on location in El Salvador.

Collide will have its red carpet premiere this Sunday December 19 with showings at 11AM and 2PM. As of this writing, the 11AM showing is nearly sold out. Tickets are $15, but contact me for info on how to get in for half price.

Heather Swann is crowned MISS DC USA

When  Miss DC USA pageant director, Althea Smith asked me to be the last female judge for the Miss DC competition, I was ecstatic and of course said "YES".  I hadn't ever done anything like this before and the experience was a ton of fun.  The most suprising part of the competition was how much love and support the girls gave each other. Even though it was a competition, the sisterhood they belong to makes it more like a family than a contest.
