Night in White at Urban Artifact April 14!

Do you have your tickets for our annual Night in White event? This super chic event is April 14 at Urban Artifact and will feature shopping, sipping, silent auction, photo booth, runway fashion show, and fun fundraising activities. And, proceeds from the event benefit the Eight Days & 1 Hour Foundation’s Stephen Morsch Nursing Scholarship. Get your tickets at https://2018NIW.eventbrite.com

I have to tell you, I’m SO excited to hold it at this venue. For those of you who haven’t heard of Urban Artifact, it’s a beautifully “rustic chic” decommissioned cathedral. There’s a brewery and music performance venue in the lower level and huge, open event space upstairs. We’ll have an amazing runway fashion show featuring Slate + Vine — a recently rebranded locally owned online boutique and this will be their FIRST runway fashion show! I seriously want every single piece I see on her site (attaching a sneak peek album of pics of her newest arrivals here on the blog) so I can’t wait to see it all on the runway and in the pop-up shop she’ll have at the event. Hope to see you there!


2017 Night in White Details Announced!

I’m so excited! One of my favorite events of the year is almost here! I created the Night in White event with a friend of mine, Stephen Smith, several years ago after his first grandson passed away after only 8 days and 1 hour. The care his family received during this time from their nurses was out of this world, so they wanted to give back to them each year in the little boy’s honor so they created the 8 Days 1 Hour Foundation. It’s a scholarship through Good Sam that helps fund schooling for a nursing student in need. It’s through this event that the foundation can select a new recipient each year! Our presenting sponsor, Krombholz Jeweler always creates a special necklace with a custom medallion featuring the grandson’s footprints… it’s pretty special. I’m really looking forward to meeting this year’s scholarship recipient, and honoring her at the event! Plus, we always have the best silent auction and pop-up shops at this event! It’s going to take place at the Backstage Event Center, which is a fab new venue above Nicolson’s downtown, right across from the Aronoff! And the fashion show sponsor is GKM Designs which is a SUPER chic local designer known for her beautiful colors, luxurious fabrics and fabulous embellishments! It’s a definite DO NOT MISS EVENT! Hope to see you there! Details below!

Who said you can’t wear white before Memorial Day? Cincy Chic is not only making it fashionable, but also philanthropic as it hosts its fourth annual “Night in White” event on May 3, from 8-11pm, at the 21c Museum Hotel downtown.

At this event, guests will enjoy cocktails, desserts, gourmet coffee, photo booth, fundraising activities, silent auction, a viewing of the new 21c art gallery, and a spectacular fashion show sponsored by Krombholz Jewelers and styled by FashionCincy.com.  All proceeds will benefit the Eight Days & One Hour Foundation’s Stephen Jason Morsch Nursing Scholarship, which was founded by Stephen Smith and his Cincinnati-based family.

“We started the Stephen Jason Morsch, 8 Days and 1 Hour Nursing Scholarship as a memorial to our late grandson Stephen in 2006. We were so touched by the generosity, care and compassion provided by the nurses at Good Samaritan Hospital during his stay. They all were truly inspirational angels on earth,” says Smith.  “Following Stephen’s passing we wanted to give back to all of those whose vocation was to help others through the nursing profession. To date we have given seven scholarships to the wonderful student nurses at Good Samaritan Hospital Nursing College. Night In White has become our largest fundraiser over the last few years — helping us to fully fund the endowment that we created at the Good Samaritan Foundation. We thank all of the sponsors and staff that have made this yearly event possible.”

This year’s Night in White event will take place at the 21c Museum Hotel, located at 609 Walnut Street. Tickets are $35 dollars for general admission and VIP tickets can be purchased for $65. Donations are also welcome. Tickets may be purchased here online.  Dress for the evening will be “white cocktail chic” with statement jewelry.

Night in White Recap, Krombholz Survey

Me and Lori Tanzer, owner of Sara Benjamin's, at the 2012 Night in White event

This year’s Night in White event was AMAZING! The best one yet! There was even a downpour, but that didn’t dampen our fun! We had a huge crowd inside and out (where we had a big party tent, dance floor, and live band). The fashion show was inside, and it was incredible! I loved all the looks – so full of color!!

Model Sierra Hensley in a Coral One Shoulder dress by Halsto Heritage from Sara Benjamin's, and an emerald and diamond ring from the Krombholz Jewelers brand called Just Like You Designs.

We’ll have the official numbers in shortly, but it’s looking like we raised more than $4,000 for the Eight Days & One Hour Foundation’s Stephen Morsch Nursing Scholarship, which was our beneficiary of the evening! Woohoo!

The Enquirer snapped some awesome pics as they covered the event – click here to check out the album. And attendees created their own Kodak Moments in our photo booth (I loved all the props this year!) – click here to see those! We’ll have photos from our photographer up on our site by Monday, so stay tuned to cincychic.com for those!

We did a sneak peek of the event on Fox19 – featuring all the latest fashion trends for this Spring from Sara Benjamin’s (our fashion show sponsor this year) – so make sure you check out that video below. Also below is the interview I did on WLWT about the foundation, scholarship and why Cincy Chic does this event each year!

Oh, and before I sign off, I do want to mention that Krombholz Jewelers is doing a jewelry survey, and one participant will win an iPad 3! Click here to take the survey! Good luck – hope you win the iPad! If you do, you have to promise to check out Cincy Chic and my blog alllll the time, ok?! 🙂



Night in White 2012 Sneak Peek

I stopped into Sara Benjamin’s to do some shopping for our upcoming Night in White event on April 20. It’s an awesome event, which benefits a local nursing scholarship, that Cincy Chic has been hosting for the past three years. So, now in my mind, this night signifies the official start of Spring! It’s the first time I wear all white, and the fashion show at the event is full of fun new Spring trends! This year, Sara Benjamin’s (my fav go-to boutique for anything from casual everyday to cocktail attire) is our fashion show sponsor.

They didn’t disappoint during my visit, as I saw four things I wanted before I even walked in the door! I wanted the jeans, top and scarf on the one mannequin and the little red number on the other! I walked in and found MUCH more that I wanted! But I was on a mission to find a little white dress (funny thing is, I actually ended up purchasing a wallet and fashion tape – no dress – haha! random!).

But, in terms of little white dresses, I did find several. I found a fab crocheted off-white dress I adored (pictured above) so I might go back and get it. They also had a few others – one bright white with a eyelet fabric overlay, another more casual and boho, and another that was long-sleeved and fitted (yet tres short and sexy with a deep-cut open back).

Check out the pics and video below for a sneak peek of some of the fashions that’ll be included in the Night in White fashion show on April 20! Click here to get your tickets today (space is limited!)


Night in White April 20

Our third annual “Night in White” event is coming up! I can’t wait! This event always means it’s finally time for Spring, and it benefits a truly awesome cause. (click here to see pics from the first year’s event)

It all got started when my friend Stephen Smith told me about how his family lost their grandson after only eight days and one hour due to a rare condition. But the nurses were so great with their family, that each year they all pitch in to help a nurse through school. They eventually developed the “Eight Days & One Hour Foundation Stephen Morsch Nursing Scholarship” in honor of their grandson. And eventually, Stephen reached out to me to see if they could take the scholarship fund to the next level, and of course, I loved the idea!

I thought it would be neat for everyone to wear white to pay homage to nurses, but have fun with the look by styling it with your favorite jewelry. It’s always a swanky event with an amazing silent auction, a fun photo booth, yummy food and cocktails and even live music (my husband’s band is playing!!). I hope you can make it! Below are all the details!
