Before we go into the Great DC Find get talk about the SALE!

Orig price: $ 90; 30% off Sale: $ 60

From now on I am going to try to post Great DC finds on a weekly basis to be included in information about Diva Bugs. To start with, I consider every find a Bug - accessory or not!

Diva Dictionary:

Bug [buhg]
1. that which makes a Diva happy. She can't live without it and oftentimes wants to hide its whereabouts from her friends. Sometimes its a unique dress and other times its just the best darn cheesecake that set her party off! Either way a Diva must have it. It makes her unique and who she is. Currently, Heidi's Kimono shirt is her favorite bug.

Love it....;)

Well anyway... at Diva Bugs we are all about the Diva and we believe that DC has a lot to offer. Like you I am always game for finding new, fun and chic places to go and things to buy. It does not matter if that thing or bug is a great dress or the best falafel sandwich ever! (that will be my next post) So I have decided that I am going to share my there will be no "shush girl, don't you dare tell your friends about this new find." Share the love Divas and Gents!

Great DC Find....

This weeks Great DC Find is Indigo Landing Restaurant.

What an amazing view of DC! Everything about this spot buzzed romantic! Its located at the Washington Sailing Marina right on the Potomac River and only less than 10 minutes away from DC. I am a bread person so I have to give the bread/cornbread basket an A+. The crabcake appetizer was all real crabmeat and scrumptious. The entrees are all country-themed ... I was surprised that they were so good but I have to admit that the trout dish could’ve been better. In the end its all about the view! Not your typical DC hangout. Definitely a great DC find!

Year in recap

Hi Everyone,

A whole year has gone by since my last post and so much has happened since then!! WOW! Let me just take a moment to update you on what we've been up to.

Fall 2005 -

Henri Bendel: Diva Bugs was offered the opportunity to show our wares to the folks at Henri Bendel in NYC. Although our purses were not selected for a trunk show we were really excited about the opportunity. The trip to NY was amazing. We had the opportunity to network with other designers some of whom have become amazing inspirations and friends.

During that trip we attended the Annual International Fabric Show in NY with some of the designers we met at the HB show. It was great seeing the different colors, textures and fabric designs available for large and small design houses.

Fall Fashion Show (charity - Dress for Success):

So as a way to introduce Diva Bugs to the community - I planned a fashion show at Busboys and Poets last Fall. The show was a great hit and we were able to raise a few hundred dollars for my favorite charity - Dress for Success. ( The show went off without a hitch.

Kudos to my co-producer Babatunde, all our models and all the local stores and designers that participated in the show. We want to again thank - Busboys and Poets, Lynelle Boutique, Brian Evans, Nana, Trade Secrets and Habitat.

Before the show....

After the show... ok we goofed on the pics of the show. But here are some pics of me, the models and some friends. We are all celebrating the show. And if you look at the group photo - Laura on the right is wearing a cream Diva Shawl and Nakia on the left is holding a black ostrich feather Racquel purse.

Craft Shows:

See pics...

March 2006 - Hotel Monaco Show:

Okay... so the earlier part of this year was spent preparing for the Hotel Monaco event to benefit Dress for Success. It was a great show! We had lots of visitors to our table and our new collection debuted that night as well.
