The Best Chefs of DC all in one room and “Hot Heel” of the Week!


The best local food, fine wines and and an evening of fun! The March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction event  will be held on October 26 held at the DC Ritz-Carlton on M street. Some come and join!

DC ON HEELS will be on the scene as Social Media Ambassadors, alongside fellow ambassador, traffic and news anchor, mama to be and SUPERWOMAN — Angie Goff of Oh My GOFF

But don’t worry there’s a handful of us social media ambassadors attending who will be tweeting, facebooking, blogging, and bringing you the best coverage of this incredible event! But we want you to get in on the action too! E-mail if you are interested in attending! 

Featuring 20 of the Washington Metro Area’s most celebrated chefs, this foodies paradise will feature the culinary delights of Oprah’s friend and former chef, Art Smith and his cooking compadre Chef Travis Timberlake of Art & Soul. Baby Love cookbook author Chef Geoff Tracy of Chef Geoffs  will also be on hand, along with reality TV competition winner, Chef Rock Harper of Hells Kitchen fame. Will be sure to ask Chef Rock what Gordan Ramsey is really like in person and what he’s been up to these days. 

The Signature Chefs Auctions are exciting events that pay tribute to the culinary distinction of 15 to 25 of the finest chefs, caterers and local celebrity chefs while raising money to support the March of Dimes mission of saving babies. Each chef is asked to present their signature dish in miniature form as well as donate a unique package to be sold during a live auction. Guest are invited to bid on a variety of packages related to entertainment, dining, leisure and travel in the lively live auction. Signature Chefs Auctions have been held in more than 20 cities across the country (Go Washington D.C.!) and these events have raised more than $132 million for the March of Dimes since 1989. The 2010 honorary chef is Ris Lacoste, Executive Chef and Owner of Ris. 

WJLA-TV news anchor Leon Harris will serve as master of ceremonies. Oh snap. See you there! 

Each week I am going to bring you the “Heel” of the week from http:// What’s Shoe Dazzle really all about you say? Well I’ll show you. It’s quick, simple, and fun! Watch this quick video to see  how it works:

So without further adieu I give my HOT Heel pick: The Veata 

I ja’dore this faux croc pump with an edge. My stylists clearly know what they are doing here! These  are the deets from ShoeDazzle:

How to Wear It:
Richly-hued faux crocodile lends a classic platform a note of luxury. Saturated color and faux croc-embossing make a classic pump new again. Veata pops when paired with silky blouses and a mini or some skinnys. Pile on the gold necklaces and jewel-toned earrings to dress her up!

About the Style:
Color: Purple
Heel Height: 4″ heel*
Platform:  0.75″ platform*
By: Imported
Fit: Runs 1/2 size small
Material: Faux croc pump

Ok time to go and step out with style. That’s all from DC ON HEELS “Giving you the local hookup to food, fashion and fun in our Nation’s Capital”
