Embassy Luncheon in DC

Thursday, October 15th, 2015 – I was invited to a luncheon at the Belgium Residence in Washington DC on behalf of the Alliance Francais, and my dear friend Sarah Diligenti, this afternoon.  The event celebrated the supporters and sponsors of the “Beyond the Little Black Dress” fashion show two weeks ago (my company FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar sponsored the hair and make-up).  The home was beautiful, filled with magnificent statues and exquisite artwork. The Ambassador of Belgium and Mrs. Verbeke are lovely and gracious.  I loved meeting all of the accomplished and distinguished people, eating French food and getting to know different people seated at my table.  I wanted to add a little bit of my Afghan roots to my outfit, so I wore an Afghan lapis lazuli necklace, embroidered sweater and eyelet dress. This is my version of business attire : )

Jacket: Lucky Brand
Dress: Catherine Malandrino
