Venus Step Up & Out ! Miami Tour Stop June 11, 2013

I attended my first free glam event with my daughter Ava ( , #outandaboutAva) and it was so much fun!

The event was held at the 1111 Lincoln Rd building on the 7th floor, which offers panoramic views of South Beach. Upon arrival, we were greeted and offered a chance to Step Up and take the spotlight!

The best part? For every woman who took part, a donation was made to Step Up Women’s Network,a national, nonprofit membership organization dedicated to connecting and advancing women and girls. (

First, I was shown a rack of gorgeous dresses from Rent the Runway (, a membership-based website that rents high-end designer apparel and accessories on a 4- or 8-day basis.  I selected a flirty Shoshanna white eyelet dress ( because it complimented my daughter’s white eyelet/blue floral dress!

Next, we got glammed up with shoes and accessories. My daughter loved the necklace that was chosen for her and I was happy that there was an assortment of clip on earring options as I do not have pierced ears. A beauty bar was available to touch up hair & makeup before walking the Venus Blue Carpet for the paparazzi.

Finally, it was time to Step Up and Step Out! We were briefly interviewed before a fashion photographer captured our Mommy and Me Goddess moment. Ava said “Hola” to everyone (very apropo for Miami )  then proceeded to walk, then run on the blue carpet ! She heard “runway” and thought she was supposed to run away! LOL. All attendees received a swag bag with a choice of  three different Gillette Venus razors.

We both enjoyed strutting our stuff for charity and encourage you to #StepUp to the conversation. Tweet with the #StepUp hashtag even if you did not attend the event, and Gillette will donate $1 to the Step Up Women’s Network. Follow @GilletteVenus or check them out

Hope you enjoy these pictures from the event !
