On Oct. 10, DC fashionistas and fashion bloggers gathered at the Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel for the HotMommaHaute Experience. The fun started at 6pm with the opening of the HotMommaHaute Marketplace. Before the main event, attendees were given the chance to mingle and explore shops from multiple vendors–including Whose Shoes Book, Jolish Hair, and The Fashionista Boutique.
Later into the evening, the panel discussion began with special guest HGTV and Extra TV Host/Pop Culture Specialist Tanika Ray. The rest of the panel consisted of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle bloggers–Malonda Richard-Sia, Maria Jose Ovalle, Jessica McFadden, Erin Martin, Krystin Hargrove, and Aracely Collins.
The panel mainly discussed how they juggle being fashionistas and mothers at the same time. Erin Martin pointed out that your sense of style does not disappear when you become a mother, it evolves. This is how she describes the changes in her style:
Style evolves. I’m a rule breaker, I wear sweatpants with heels.
HotMommaHaute taught us that when you look good you feel good. So, remember to stay fabulous no matter how hectic your life is!
