Summer Style & Beauty Bash at TOOTSIES

Susan Friedman, Dan Pritchett & Alison Volk
I didn't think I was going to make this event at TOOTSIES. I had been in Fort Worth earlier in the evening, overseeing a cocktail reception for a client at the Ft. Worth Museum of Science and History for a new exhibit they are showing called, Ascent: When Dreams Defy Gravity. If you have boys, you should check this out. Very interactive exhibit about the history of flight.  

But after a week of talking about nothing but reality TV, I decided to pop in and make an appearance, because I needed something else to talk about this week besides cat-fighting and tattoos!

The divine Alison Volk and Tootsies hosted the evening where they showcased vendors like Citizens of Humanity, Rebecca Minkoff and Mark & Etsel.   Facelogic was sampling their line of body products and a DJ spinning upstairs gave the whole scene a club-like atmosphere.

Matthew Gilley & Jarrod Fresquez
Daniel Winson Lewis of Green Peridot (who happens to be my personal hair stylist!) was on hand to showcase the latest hair trend of feather extensions. Even guys, like Jarrod Fresquez, were happy to add a few feathers to their coif for the cause.

15% of the evenings proceeds went to benefit Young Texans Against Cancer.  

TOOTSIES has been holding a huge sale to divest them sleves of Summer merchandise, but TODAY they are making another slash on those price tags and designer duds will be marked down up to 70% off! 

Oh So Cynthia with Tara Harper
And, of course,  no evening would be complete without a reality TV star sighting... So, who did I run into at TOOTSIES? 

The star of the new about-to-be-your-favorite-TV-show Bravo's Most Eligible Dallas, Miss Tara Harper. Who looked super-model stunning in a black Jackie O. dress from HALO 

You can't really tell in this photo because her hair is covering it, but it had the most interesting neckline and I would totally borrow it from her if I could fit in a size 2... Click the link above to check out other stars who love this dress!
