“It was an amazing night thanks to all of you!! Best to your ways!!” said Jana Sedlakova, model and fashion icon in DC for more than 15 years.

With a sea of seated VIPs, sport, fashion and political celebrities, an excellent weather, sunglasses, a thumping soundtrack, and, naturally, wave upon wave of sartorial splendor, the 2012 Walk This Way, by the non-profit organization Becky’s Fund and menswear designer Eric Finn Custom Clothiers, rocked more than the stage at this runway show that embraced its new home at the Kastles Stadium, with energy and panache.

A recap of 2012 Walk This Way from The Fab Empire:

Without question, the “Fourth Annual Walk This Way Fashion Show” was the place to be last night. From pro-athletes to media notables, Kastles Stadium was definitely filled with the who’s who of the District.

Mayor Vincent Gray (along with his son Vincent Jr.) was on hand, along with ABC 7’s Cynne Simpson and Jummy Olabanji; WPGC’s Sunni and Guy Lambert, NBC 4’s Danella Sealock, and blogger Kate Michael just to name a few.

Don’t FALL Back Into Your Old Habits

Just as the weather changes from summer to fall, we need also to look carefully at who and what should transition into the next season. The old saying that some people are here for a reason, some for a season and some for a lifetime is very true. The people who hurt us typically are not the ones we need to stick around.

Research shows that healthy and supportive relationships can reduce stress and improve your overall health and sense of well-being. However, all relationships are not equally supportive. Building a network of supportive friends, or even just one supportive relationship, can be vital to your well being. So as the seasons change, here are some tools that can help you soul search on which of your relationships are healthy and supportive, and which ones are not.

Love Yourself: This task of “loving yourself” can definitely be challenging…but you are a powerful individual if you let yourself be.

Communicate: Sometimes the hardest thing with change is confirming it and being honest with yourself as well as the people around you. Try to communicate your feelings to the people in your life so that they can better understand your needs and you can better understand theirs.

Get rid of the trash: Although it is hard to let go of someone you love and care about, if your safety and well being are being challenged, get help and take out the trash. It will be hard but in order to get what we need we have to let go of the things we don’t.

Have fun: Laughter is the best medicine for pretty much… anything. Try to keep the positive people in your life.

The safety and well-being of our clients and staff is our first priority.
