Blog No Longer Active

Thanks to everyone who kept up with this itty bitty blog! I’m so blessed for all the opportunities I was afforded during my blogging stint and for all the relationships I built along the way! I’m now living in Washington DC working on my first self-titled collection.

Lots of hugs & kisses!

Green Inaugural Ball Style

The Fab and Frugal DC Fashion Style Blog Green Inaugural Ball 2013 Ralph Lauren Black Silk Dress Ciner Vintage BraceletI clean up nice. I got this classy Ralph Lauren Collection frock at Saks Off Fifth at Potomac Mills marked down to $400 from $2675 – quite the steal if I do say so myself. I added the beautiful vintage Ciner bracelet from the set my parents bought me for my wedding as a nod to the Green Inaugural Ball held at the beautiful Newseum of course. My hubs wore a Calvin Klein tuxedo.

Ball attendees included a surprise appearance by Vice President Joe Biden who said, “I also came to tell you what my green wish is: that we finally face up to climate change. I came to thank you.” Chills! Will.i.am and Sugar Ray performances were followed up by Bill Nye The Science Guy and SurvivorMan! Open bar and lustrous views of the nation’s capital didn’t hurt of course.
