Now, to find the perfect sandals while stuck in a snow storm…

February and March has been a whirlwind adventure, filled with talent and opportunities, I am in awe and gratitude for all that has come our way. While preparing for my fiancés departure, being a full time mom and devoted fashion stylist, I received exciting news. Ariella Faith has been nominated for the Fashion Group International of Greater Washington, DC Rising Stars! Many emotions ran through my body: honored, humbled, grateful, shocked and nervous all at once.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 18 DC’s finest will walk the red carpet in honor and celebration of the Rising Star Nominees at James Beard award winning chef, Fabio Trabocchi Casa Luca hosted by Eun Yang, NBC 4 News Anchor. This inaugural event will honor the most promising and emerging talent in their industries. Drum roll please…
