Last Friday I donned a floral dress and my (comfortable) J.Crew Mari sandals in shocking pink before descending downtown (and by downtown, I mean downtown Bethesda) for the annual Front Row Bethesda with this year’s celebrity guest, Jessica Alba.
I checked out of work early so I could get in line for Alba’s book signing (I immediately jumped to the chapter on honest beauty while waiting). My interaction with Alba was short, but sweet. Only short because I forgot what I wanted to say and all I could get out was, “I love your hair!” Which I really did. Her high ponytail almost made me wish I had long hair again. Almost.
Following the signing, I noshed on sliders and Georgetown Cupcakes while sipping on specialty cocktails at Redwood before the fashion show. I had the chance to meet Georgetown Cupcake founders, Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis (who are Greek, by the way… so obvs I had to introduce myself) and chatted with them the upcoming Greek Festival and how I should buy a Hermes bag (although, it was a very genuine recommendation, I don’t think I’ll be able to afford a bag like that in my lifetime).

The Front Row fashion show featured local retailers including my favorites, Ginger, Luna and Francesca’s Collection. I fell in love with this green lace Joie dress that was in the show.
