Join us for the DC Trans Ladies’ Spring Soiree in Arlington, VA on April 23!

Join us for the DC Trans Ladies’ Spring Soiree in Arlington, VA on April 23!

Greeting ladies! Join the DC Trans Ladies Meetup group once again at Samuel Beckett’s, an Irish gastropub in Shirlington, Virginia for our spring Soiree event. Dress up to impress with your favorite flirty, spring dress or a similar chic ensemble, perhaps complimented with a new purse or other accent accessory to lend sparkle to the night. And you can savor Irish-themed food and drink offered by the establishment while socializing with friends.

The Sam Beckett’s management is excited to host our 4th event. We’ve had about 50 guests at our first two affairs with a smaller crowd at the holiday party. Beckett’s has an intimate atmosphere yet they can accommodate up to 70 of us!

As was the case last time, we will be getting separate checks and ordering off their standard dinner menu. Price range is moderate. Check out a typical dinner menu here: https://samuelbecketts.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Food-Menu-November-Draft-2.pdf

To attend the Spring Soiree, please join the DC Trans Ladies Meetup and RSVP to the spring soiree there. The soiree is from 7-11:30 p.m. Although the event states an end time of 11:30PM this is not a hard limit since Beckett’s is usually open to as late as 1 a.m. Everyone is free to mingle and chat after 11:30 — and we definitely hope you do!

Guests
Significant others are welcome! Please be sure to include them as your +1 when you RSVP. Please RSVP soonest as we need to update the venue with our numbers one week prior to the event.

Attire
We want to reinforce the goodwill produced at our first three events so we expect everyone to wear attire appropriate for a mainstream space. No fetish wear, please.

Parking
Shirlington has extensive, free, garage parking on weekends and evenings. Our preferred parking facility is the Quincy St. Garage at 2901 S Randolph St, Arlington, VA 22206. There’s a staircase to Randolph Street on the NW corner of the garage. This garage is just a two minute walk to the pub and has ample parking on all levels.

Drop-off Location & Entrance
The entrance to Sam Beckett’s is located on Campbell Street across from the Peet’s Coffee even though the address is 2800 S Randolph St. If you are getting dropped off, please use 4150 Campbell Avenue for closer access to the front door.

Feeling nervous?
If you’d like someone to meet you at your car and walk in with you, no problem! Just text Beth, and she (or another guest) will come out to walk you in and introduce you to the other ladies.

Lodging
The Hilton Garden Inn in Shirlington has rooms available from $140 and up. We don’t have any special rate negotiated so be sure to check out your discount options online when you book, e.g. use hotel chain points, AAA membership discounts, etc. It’s just a two minute walk from the hotel to the pub! Hotel website: https://www.hilton.com/en/hotels/dcaasgi-hilton-garden-inn-arlington-shirlington/

COVID-19 Guidance
It would be prudent to bring a face mask for use outside or inside the restaurant as needed. Stay home if you’re feeling ill. Michelle and Beth have been fully vaccinated and anticipate that most of our guests will be too.

Makeup Artist
Elizabeth Taylor has one makeup makeover slot available on April 23 at 2 p.m. at her studio in Takoma Park, MD. You can book online at her makeover menu.

Missy: Off to Never Never Land

Missy: Off to Never Never Land

Melissa arrived decked out in daytime makeup and leather after spending the day strolling around Crystal City. We readily agreed to rock out to a Metallica playlist, kicking off with “Enter Sandman.” We updated her makeup to a dramatic smokey eye and MAC’s “Sin” colored lipstick for a nighttime vibe for heading to Freddie’s Beach Bar. In addition to standard studio shots with a gray background, Missy wanted some rocker chick pics against the brick wall. We looked up ideas online and one with blue side-lighting caught her eye. After some lighting experimentation, we captured the backstage look she was going for.

Jasmine decided to play to her punk rock side today during our makeover. We listened to 2000s hard rock music and took “backstage” photos in my studio.

Watch my makeup tutorial videos on facebook

Watch my makeup tutorial videos on facebook

Hi everyone! I’ve done several makeup tutorials throughout the years on my facebook page. With the links below to the individual videos, you can watch even if you don’t join facebook. Pretty cool!

Just as a heads up, I’m currently working primarily with MAC makeup and my only studio is in Takoma Park, MD just one mile from Washington, DC. You will hear many references my previous studio locations of Alexandria, Baltimore, and Cabin John in my older videos. However, my only studio is in Takoma Park, MD. You’ll also hear me talking a lot about Younique makeup, but I don’t sell Younique online anymore. I have a few Younique products still available in inventory if there’s something you’re craving.

Enjoy!

Allison Relaxes at Takoma Park Studio

Allison Relaxes at Takoma Park Studio

Allison loves relaxing with a total makeover and an all-day photography session. She visited my new Takoma Park studio this summer, and we had a blast shooting in the yard, on the deck, and in the “girl cave.”

As a Navy veteran, Allison wanted some photos in tribute to her service as shown by her service dress blue jumper. After her patriotic photos, we went for a casual purple and blue dress that hit at the mid-thigh topped with a blue sweater. Then we did a few ballerina photos on the back deck followed by a glamorous look in a blue velvet dress on the deck and in our “girl cave.”
