As we mentioned in our newsletter this month, we are OBSESSED with Sara Azani’s blog, Style MBA. Sara is both the creator and editor; her blog focuses on fabulous fashion, beauty, decor, and travel inspiration.

Sara was kind enough to take some time with us to discuss Valentine’s Day styling tips. With V-Day just around the corner her expert guidance is much appreciated! Here’s what she had to say…

Q: What is your go-to date look?

A: I love wearing neutral tones for date night whether it’s for dinner or the movies. Comfy heels are also number 1. If I plan on getting more dressed up, I’ll throw on a comfortable dress with some booties.

Q: What completes a date-night outfit for you?

A: The shoes and bag! Shoes and bags are investment worthy pieces that make an outfit. Make sure to invest in a nice handbag or pair of heels that you can wear repeatedly to make your return on investment.

Q: There are so many different types of date ideas, what would you wear to the following?…

Classic dinner and movie

A: I would wear a chunky sweater with sexy cut outs, leggings, and high boots.

Valentine’s brunch

A more neutral look — classic white silk top and great jeans, with high heels and a nice statement bag.

Home cooked meal and wine by the fire

A: A comfortable sweater dress and my favorite slippers 😉

Happy Tuesday everyone! Sure hope the weather turns around here in D.C., it’s looking a little gloomy out there. But here is something that we think will turn your day sunny! Our girl, Eden Raskin, is not only the amazing blogger behind, Garden of Glam, but she is also the Director of Operations for G.L.A.M. (Giving Labels a Meaning).


This Thursday evening, Eden and Meaghan Moynahan, the founder & CEO of G.L.A.M. ( she also owns and operates the fashion blog District Sparkle) will be hosting G.L.A.M’s BIG Fashion Event, benefitting Safe Shores DC and their incredible work and dedication to protecting children exposed to abuse, trauma, and violence. 100% of the profits from ticket sales, raffle sales, and vendor registration from this event will be donated to Safe Shores DC.

The event will take place on Thursday, June 20 from 6:30-9pm at 906 H St NE. The Event will  feature pop up shops from local designers and boutiques as well as a fashion presentation. 

I asked Eden to tell me why she is so passionate about this event and children advocacy, and here is what she said, “While fashion and youth advocacy are seemingly disparate causes, G.L.A.M. allows us to combine our love of fashion with our desire to help children in need. Through our past full-time and volunteer experiences we both became incredibly passionate about children’s advocacy and believe in the importance of supporting and nurturing local youth.”

Way to go Eden and Meaghan!
