Even though this was 2 days ago, I am still in a state of denial and shock that I was chosen and honored as an influential woman of style in DC. Nicole Garder of Womanly Curve Magazine and Candice Nicole of Candice Nicole PR hosted an unbelievably lovely event to honor 5 of us in all aspects of blogging and life. I was the only fashion topic and I really have no words still to express my gratitude over this. This was hands down the most fun event that I have attended in DC in a very long time. Typically events like this are bland and consist of a bunch of well dressed people in various corners of the room speaking to those they know. This one was far from that and I am sure others felt the exact same way with all of the mixing and mingling that I saw. The highlight of the night for me was hearing my name called to accept my award and then hear the splendid cacophony (oxymoron right) of cheers and claps from my awesome support group of fellow bloggers and friends. It was sincerely surreal and I feel blessed and thankful and over over the moon by this. A million thank yous to Nicole and Candice for presenting me with such an honor and for everyone that attended!
