Ooh La La! The JCAs Go to Brunch Parisian Style...

Yesterday, a tres magnifique brunch was enjoyed by 7 lovely JCA ladies. Planned by the alluring Rosa -- who also organized last month's uber-elegant luncheon at the Occidental Grill following Cleo26's unforgettable White House tour -- yesterday's brunch was held at Le Chat Noir, a charming French bistro set in Washington, D.C.'s fashionable Friendship Heights neighborhood.

The ladies sipped mimosas while dining on such delicacies as escargots, mussels, soupe a l'oignon, and a savory selection of meat and dessert crepes. Everyone looked ultra chic in their ensembles. But most agreed that Cleo26 stole the show in her stunning rendition of the Veruschka dress from the February '08 collection.
And speaking of Cleo, she was also the well-deserving recipient of a J.Crew gift card -- a thank you for her stellar planning and efforts to make the White House tour a smashing success. Don't worry Cleo, we're sure you'll find some worthy items to spend it on!

Post-brunch shopping was a must (and even pre-brunch shopping for some lucky gals!), so we made haste to the Friendship Heights J.Crew to check out the latest fall offerings. Yours truly abstained from buying anything, however, in anticipation of the upcoming pre-holiday/winter rollout private shopping event (read: 20% off!) to be held in early November. Stay tuned for more details on that...

A big thanks for Rosa for another splendid lunch gathering and, as always, an excuse to shop en masse. Here we are left to right: HeidiG, 3PP, Drewablank, Slastena, Rosa, Cleo26, and Kat.



I look forward to more fabulous JCA outings with you girls!

Oh I am so sad! I hate being in NYC when there are fabulous DC JCA events I am missing. Chat Noir is my fav too!! Now I want to move home.

Everyone looks fabulous - just radiant. Love everyone's outfit!

Let me know when you plan the next shopping event. I'll see what I can do about coming home for it.

XOXO Miss Everyone!

You have done it again 3PP, it's a wonderful recap of our JCA event.
I agree with you, miss CleoP looked like a movie star! I almost did not recognize as she was walking towards the restaurant.

Summerilla, we missed you too. 3PP will post the information for the next event so maybe you can come and join us. That would be awesome!
