In representation of The Daughters of Christ Inc.’s support, I had the pleasure of attending the Saks Fifth Avenue Spring Fashion Show benefiting the Eric Trump Foundation and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Sunday afternoon. It was my first time visiting the beautiful grounds at Trump National Golf Club of DC located in my Northern Virginia community. The venue was perfectand the event was spectacular! I had a great time meeting wonderful people, partaking of a delicious three-course lunch meal, and viewing beautiful spring/summer fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria replete with men’s and women’s wear of leading designers for a great cause!
I was so honored to be seated at Table 1 along with some phenomenal ladies: Summer (I Am Modern Magazine), Meghan (Intern, Northern Virginia Magazine), Jean, and Lucy (both avid golfers who offered to help me along my golf learning journey that begins with my beginner’s golf courses at The Golf Club at Lansdowne on June 1). As it turns out, Jean and I share a mutual friend as well: It’s a small world.
As a writer myself, it was so exciting to see magazine journalism in action as Summer and Meghan attentively took plenty of notes during the fashion show. I’m looking forward to reading their respective write-ups on the event (which I’ll share once they are published).
The Saks Fifth Avenue fashion show, which was moderated by April Yvonne, Fashion Stylist and Founder of MyDCStyle, awesomely provided us with great fashion looks and styles for the season. All of the Saks representatives who were available to answer our interest or purchasing inquiries on clothing and/or beauty items were very amicable, professional and knowledgeable. The beauty reps even touched up my lips with the coral lip gloss by Sisley Cosmetics – an organic skincare and makeup line. I loved it and looked fabulous with it on (if I must say so myself)! In fact, a representative of Sisley Cosmetics is coming to Saks Tysons Galleria next month and I scheduled my make-over appointment at the event for June 6; Due to my having sensitive skin, I’m looking forward to trying out an organic skincare line.
At the end of the event, all attendees were blessed with two gift bags: One containing a Saks Fifth Avenue Wine Bottle Stopper and the other a delicious cupcake by Cakes By Carolyn, both of which I was truly grateful to receive.
This benefit event was a huge success; I hope that as a result, St. Jude benefited greatly. I pray for God’s continue healing and strength to the young patients as well as their parents who are being treated at St. Jude.

P.S. Now, I’m really “pumped out” about beginning my golf lessons in a couple of weeks. My “baby” brother Jermaine, who is a golfer, has been encouraging me for years to learn the game. Watch out Jermaine – you know how I am once I put my heart, time and talent into something: I go for it with a passion with the intent to succeed. As my latest saying goes with The Daughters of Christ Royal Soarors: I “Be Me, Do Me,” and suggest you “Be You, Do You as DaddyGod designed you! :)
