Taking Hayden to this event for the first time was special for us. My dear friends at Marque Communications, Bill Horn and Scout Masterson, present this annual event benefiting LA Family Housing. It's the sixth year; I've attended almost every year. I came (way before I had my own family) with my godkids, aka Marisa Coughlan Wallack's kiddos. I would walk around the event wondering if I would ever get to bring my own child someday. I've known Bill and Scout for the majority of my adult life. I watched them get married (like many of you all did on the Tori Spelling's show) and start their family with Simone, then Boz.
Finally, last year, I attended with my own little family: Joel and Huck (and I was secretly pregnant with Hayden. I had just started taping General Hospital and we were keeping the baby quiet for the time being. So hard to believe that was a year ago). This year, I got to bring my son to the event! Of course, we wanted Huck with us, but he was with his mom and her family; part of the package with a blended family.
Thanks to all the amazing vendors that made this day so special!! I love seeing our friends from Ju Ju Be, Chatbooks, Ergo Baby, 4Moms, and Diono (amongst many others, too). And learning about new brands- like Foodstirs, Sarah Michelle Gellar's new monthly food baking delivery service. Oh, and Hayden met Santa for the first time!
I decided to go a bit dressier this year in red. And I can blame it on the baby. My solid red dress was inspired by Hayden's little outfit my mother sent him (I found a similar style HERE). But truly, wearing red made me feel more in the holiday spirit. This particular dress is genius for parties. First off, it has pockets! LOVE THAT. It's a great length for day or night, dressing up or down. I appreciate the A-line aspect that skims the body without being too terrible tight around the lower half. Oh, and it's on sale! Under $90. For a sizing reference, I'm in a 4. It's slightly snug on top. It comes in several colors, too! Take a look below--- plus, I added similar styles of Hayden's outfit, as well as a few other holiday red dresses that I am eyeing!
