Dinnner En Blanc
As I was wrapping up my inspiration guide for what to wear to the Dinner en Blanc in DC, I realized I totally skipped out on also helping the fine DC gentlemen get outfit options. I put a list below of a few things I would love to see some men wear. I must say it was kind of difficult. I thought us ladies had a lot of thinking to do but we actually have it easy compared to the boys. So ladies and gentlemen, I hope you find my guide helpful and again if you've ever attended a Dinner en Blanc event, don't be shy and please leave us some tips!

I'm so excited to be able to attend the first ever Diner en Blanc in D.C! This incredibly chic event started 25 years ago in Paris and DC will now be one of the 50 cities to host it - yay. Naturally, I've been thinking non stop about the outfit possibilities. My number one priority is definitely to be comfortable since there will be a lot of walking and getting to the secret destination. But of course, being comfy does not mean I can't look Fab! Below are some options I'm considering -- feel free to comment with suggestions. Have you ever attended a Diner en Blanc party? I would love to hear about it!

Events: Amaluna Show + Giveaway

On August 10th, I had the opportunity to attend the latest Cirque du Soleil show, Amaluna at the National Harbor. I could not think of a better person to go with other than our wonderful food and travel contributor, Jessica of Adventures of the Repatriate. We both had a great experience under the iconic blue and yellow tent of the Cirque du Soliel. During the two hour length of the show, we saw over one hundred and thirty beautifully designed costumes. We were entranced by the peacock feathers, shimmery fabrics, water acrobatics and colorful characters swinging from the trapeze.
"Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to “mother” in many languages, and luna, which means “moon”; a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where this magical story unfolds". We had such a great time that we are now giving away 4 tickets to a lucky reader for the August 28th show, fill out the form below to enter. We will be announcing the winner August 23rd. GOOD LUCK!
