Local stylist, April Yvonne, of brought out area fashion addicts, social media, and photographers on a (rare) perfect July summer night in DC for the second in the three-part “Women of Good Taste: Summer Style Series, ““Cocktail Attire 101.” 

The beautiful patio of J&G Steakhouse provided the perfect setting for guests (and the many mesmerized tourists passing by!), to enjoy the show featuring fashion from area boutiques,  Urban Chic, Annalee's, Zophia, and jewelry from Stella & Dot. April gave her expert style tips on how to work each runway look for that next soiree or cocktail party with different shoes and accessories. Guests also nibbled on J&G hors d'oeuvres while browsing Stella & Dot jewelry and digging through the fabulous Dandelion Patch gift bags with swag from Salon Daniel, Dandelion Patch, and Urban Chic!

If you missed “Cocktail Attire 101,” not to worry--Part 3 of the Summer Style Series: Fall Fashion Preview is coming up on August 24!  April is already busy helping DC get ready for those cooler days ahead (sigh) on her website, where she compiles the most chic fall looks to take you from day to night!  When not styling the nation's capital at her seminars or on her website, April provides style consultations and writes the weekly Georgetown Dish fashion column, "The A Line."
