Happy Wednesday Fashion Femme Fatales and Gents! As promised, here are pics from my surprise bridal brunch last Sunday at the delicious Coco Sala in Washington, DC. The day began with a visit from makeup artist DymonJane. Previously, I’d emailed her pics of “doll-like”makeup, I’d seen on the runway all last season. I knew my sisters had planned a special brunch, but wasn’t exactly sure of the details like who would be there, etc. I was beyond thrilled to see close family and friends traveled from near and far to celebrate this moment with me! What an honor! Everyone looked fab! What made the shower the best (for me) is that everyone enjoyed themselves! That was a priority. Later that evening, I opened gifts at home with mom, my aunt, Karima and Carlita (who sweetly stayed latest to help record who gave what – picking a proper thank you card will be fun).

Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I’d sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, “I think you need a blog!” LOL! I’ve been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
