*Bombshell Jame Jackson wrote a great recap/testimonial regarding Cocktails with Claire, D.C. for her site, The Blonde Misfit:
She wrote, “When you first arrived, a lovely foreground stood outside for you to get your ‘celebrity’ spotlight on. Once you walked in, you were greeted by lovely staff members, who helped with check-in, transitioning into the main rooms, and servers who strutted around with delicious hors d’oeuvres all evening for the festivities.”
“Anyone who reads Fashion Bomb Daily will know of Claire’s “Cool Online Finds” section, where she highlights and spotlights Black-owned businesses in an effort to contribute to and build our #BuyingBlack ongoing push into the community. For the first time, this year’s Cocktails With Claire featured lovely vendors who traveled far and near to sample their clothes and wears. Handmade fabrics, sewn and stitched purses, and sequin blazers immediately caught my eye, but the diversity continued to trend as wave after wave of vendor and stylist showed up and showed out with their sales.”
