I don’t have to toot my own horn in Houston. I’ve only met Pixie once, and here she is not only carrying my bag, but also demanding I make more for her friends. Feels good, but not gonna happen….right now

Festari begins at the Intercontinental Hotel in Houston. Local tycoons are strutting their stuff in suits that would make Tom Ford stare. On stage, Michael Brown in a cream cashmere Festari says, “ladies love the cashmere, they can’t keep their hands off me.” According to, well, everyone, this is one of the most fun events of the year.

It’s truly an honor to know Joanne King Herring.  She has such charisma and strength.  I hope one day to inspire people the way she does.

My first official write-up for a rather large publication.  Pretty exciting :)

Fairy Godmother Evenings

As much fun as it is to dress up like Cinderella, the goal of galas is not to show off your style.  Generosity, dedication, and good will are the main game.  And last weekend, everyone could play.

Take a one minute to see how Houston raised a million dollars for the city’s youth!

“The band is not going on until we raise $100,00.” — Michael Linn, the honoree of The Children’s Charity Ball.

Tonight we are raising money for children’s needs – shelter, rides to school, health care, family’s rent, and a good night of sleep.

They are asking you donate $100 for one bed.  There are at least 600 people here. As Michael pointed out, we spent hundreds (if not thousands) on our ensembles, so $100 should be an effortless contribution. Unfortunately, many Houstonians seem to attend these events on a weekly basis, so they have to spread the wealth.

Cinderella evening at the Opera ends. Many thanks to my fairy godmothers Gustavo Cadile, Erica Courtney, and Edward Sanchez. Drove home in my pumpkin rental and now it’s time to turn in. Another day of dress up tomorrow for the Children’s Charity Ball.

Tonight’s feast is catered by Tony’s, one of my faves! On the other side of the table is my hostess Donna Bruni, opera aficionado (sp??).
