RECAP: The Cinderella Foundation Presents...Fashion With A Purpose

Last Sunday, I got the chance to sit front row with some fabulous women to see Mrs. Diane Cole Stevens put on a great fashion/beauty show! The beautiful Terrace at 101 Constitution Avenue was the perfect venue for such a fabulous event like this and what made it even more beautiful was the spectacular view and weather. Check out my recap from Fashion With A Purpose below:

Gift bags were filled with beauty products that I can't wait to try!! Thank you Cole Stevens :)

Hello, from the other side of the capitol! It was a little windy but I had to finally debut this romper that I've been wanting to wear for about  two months now and I decided to rock my #furreal shoes I copped..I'm obsessed!! 

 selfies with my ladies before the show! 

It was almost show but I had to get another pic on this spectacular rooftop! What a view :)

Make-up check ; )

Host/Hostess of the night from Fox5 News Wisdom Martin and Allison Seymour started off the fashion show with some jokes, meanwhile helping everyone bid during the charity auction.


AMAZING! I was speechless!


Deidre Jefferies had some amazing pieces from her collection! Definitely a designer to watch!

Then there was live music between the charity auction and the Cinderella Girls had a front seat to all the amazing talent!

The beautiful and God-fearing, Mrs. Diane Cole Stevens! What an incredible woman, an inspiration to so many---did I mention I got the VIP treatment at her hair salon the weekend of the show? Absolutely loved my experience! If you are in the DMV area, make sure you ask for Jackie :) 

Korto Momolu from Project Runway showed off her skills with this very whimsical collection. I want everything!!

Deidre Jefferies auctioned off this one-of-a-kind gown! So beautiful :)

Kamaria, Myself, Naseya & Ashleigh = BLACK WOMEN WHO ROCK!

Selfie with the woman of the hour, Diane :)

And then there were more selfies!! Ahhhhh what an amazing night :)

HALLOWEEN 2015: Pink Power Ranger Edition!

Call me Kimberly!!! I morphed into my favorite super hero from the 90s, PINK POWER RANGER and of course I gave her a 2015 upgrade with my fuchsia Jimmy Choo heels. I mean, why not?! Halloween was a complete marathon of events (which is the constant theme in my life lol) and it was surely a night to remember! Check out a few pictures from my night and the amazing costumes my friends and I had on. It's Morphin' time.....

My bestie Terrin was Poison Ivy! She rocked it...this was my first stop of the night. Live music and great food made for an amazing start to a great night :)

Poison Ivy, Pink Ranger, Fire Woman & Spider Woman :)

We still talkin' teams? Love these girls! #superHERoes

Then there was the burlesque show at SAX! Oh what a night...nothing but laughs lol.

TRIFECTA! #POWERtothepeople

Couldn't ask for a better crew full of super heroes! Ended our night at The Park lounge, it's sort of like tradition. Oh whaaaat a night! 

Halloween was just a start to a great weekend, I also attended the Fashion With A Purpose fashion show Sunday so I'll be posting lots of pics/video from the show. I officially have the case of Mondays and it's back to business...talk to you guys later! xo-
