Marie Claire Style Council

Several months ago I was invited to become a member of the Marie Claire Style Council- yeah that Marie Claire- well it was completely unexpected, but extremely flattering! I was wondering what on earth they wanted me to do with this prestigious title- jet set around the world and preview new collections, or perhaps pull a Stacy and Clinton and berate 'unstylish' outfits? My first task was way better than I could have ever imagined- to host a wildly fabulous party- booze included!

I've always been an avid fan of hosting parties, so this was perfect for me, minus the clean up after everyone part, or even worse taking care of an overflowing toilet in the midst of the elegant soiree--eek! Well no housekeeping duties here, just show up, wear something fabulous, and mingle like it's nobody's business all while sampling every last one of the festive cocktails!
