Event: City Paper’s Best of DC Fete


I’m done… nothing more to be said…

Okay maybe there is a little more to be said but for this event I will let the pictures do most of the talking.  Before the photo reel though, let me give you a little background.  The Best of DC Fete is a celebration of Washington City Paper’s Best Of 2013 winners from both their editorial and reader votes in over 300 categories! For one night they brought together 50 Best of D.C. winners and finalist restaurants, local breweries & other artisans to wine and dine us.  To set the mood, they also had 5 live entertainment stages in addition to all the food and drink to make this one of the Best D.C. event of the year! A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to Food & Friends to help deliver hope, one meal at a time the Best of DC Volunteer winner.  Food & Friends is a local nonprofit that provides meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to children and adults in the Washington region living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-challenging illnesses.

It is super soft and comfortable and went perfectly with my new Stella & Dot Fiona Bib Necklace that I am OBSESSED with.  Of course I had to rock THE BAG I scored at Violet boutique (another obsession of mine which is why it’s THE BAG)
