Hello Savvy, Sexy, & Social Ladies,
Hi ladies, I am sure you missed the newsletter last week. No worries, we will have everything caught up.
Here's a recap from our fun:
Sip, Shop & Socialize + Photoshoot and
Women Who Dance
Highlight of my Week! Want to share yours too?!?
I attended this amazing event, The Fillmore Silver Spring Fall Open House, even though I spent 2 1/2 hours to get there driving because of the rain, it was well worth it, and I give thanks to my friend Melanie Soley Lacher (The Fillmore event coordinator) for inviting me. I got to see and catch up with some peeps from my catering industry, but the most exciting part was it felt like a Savvy, Sexy & Social event. I got to hang out with 3 of our ladies, you know how much fun it is when we get together! One of our ladies, Janet Flowers, sponsored the event; I’m sure some of you know she is one of the top florist and event designers in the DMV. She made these beautiful custom masks during the event. She invited other ladies from the club and it was exciting to see them. Denise Lynn was there helping Janet. How awesome! That is what our club is about, we meet, have fun, help/support, and do business with each other. Dana Lutz was there with her beautiful daughter, who’s getting married early next year, how exciting! Dana is looking to have Janet help with her daughter’s wedding. Congratulations Dana! I am sure everything is going to be fabulous! See pics from the event below.
Before I forget! I finally launched our Keula Binelly Couture Website. Janina and I have been working so hard to upload some of the photoshoot pics of you beautiful ladies and it looks awesome. We are very proud, make sure to check it out, and happy shopping!!
Don’t be shy ladies!!…
…I am still wondering if you have anything exciting you want to share that’s happening in your life, something so BIG that you can’t keep it to yourself. Please send it to us and we will be happy to put it here in the newsletter next week! It can be ANYTHING. I would like to encourage you and keep this space available for you let us know things you love and what makes you happy!
BTW… I am not sure who else has a birthday this month, if you do please let us know!
Vladlena celebrated her birthday on Monday, October 1st. She shared a video on FB (Click here to see it), one of her dreams she always wanted to race cars, so she celebrated in style!!! We’ll get to celebrate with her later this month. What a great idea, ladies - let’s keep that in mind, maybe we’ll all race cars together. Thank you Vladlena for sharing your birthday and we will plan to celebrate with you soon.
Janina’s birthday is just around the corner on Tuesday October 9th and she’s so looking forward to celebrating with all of us.
Belinda’s birthday is on Sunday October 21st and we are so excited to celebrate with her in our KBC Fashion Show. She just gave herself a big gift - her dream trip to Europe.
Reminder… please send us your Birthday info (Day and Month) so we can celebrate!
Keula Binelly Couture/ Sip, Shop & Socialize update/ Photoshoot #5 Pics
Last Wednesday, The Sip, Shop, & Socialize + photoshoot was another hit! Ladies, we just keep having more and more fun, it was a smaller group with some new faces and the usual beautiful faces! One of our newest members Lourine came and Kipp was the photographer for the evening. These have been so successful, the feedback has been great. I have been very busy, please forgive me for not releasing all of the photos, but trust me, they are well worth the wait!!! I will be going to Brazil Saturday, to bring my Mom and my Step-Father back, I have the opportunity to bring new clothes for the Fall/Winter Collection. Keep a look out for the sexy new styles!!! BTW… We are having a Fashion Show!!!
"It brings me so much joy to see women coming out of their shell and realizing how beautiful they are."
~ Keula Binelly
Since I am returning from Brazil and my Mom will be here, I am stilling deciding if we are having one next Wednesday. Stay tuned for another evening of fun, friends, fashion, and foolishness while listening to music, nibbling on hors d'oeuvres and sipping Prosecco.
Here are some amazing pics from photoshoot #5! BIG thank you to the amazing photographer of the night Keri Gaudreau!
Women Who Dance:
Girls, we had a BLAST!
You have no idea how much I needed to go out dancing with you ladies. It started out to be about 7 and then it was 13 of us. Reggie Bell showed up (one of the best photographers)! That night was worth more than a $1,000 in therapy. The Burlesque show was amazing, and there was an aerialist performer. Don’t forget to check the Calendar on the website we will be back there for Sir Sunday…
Women Who Love God: BIBLE STUDY
We had to reschedule our Bible Study this week.
We are looking forward to the next one! Please if you’d like to volunteer to host Bible Study in your home, let us know!
Let’s Keep it Real.
Topic: The importance of Validation: I’ve spoken about a similar topic before. The most important validation should come from ourselves, but it feels nice when people acknowledge us and appreciate our efforts, and the same works the other way. Recently, my husband sent me 10 reasons why he loves me, he helped me remember when life gets busy, we sometimes forget to validate others. When we think about our kids, friends, co-workers, sometimes sending them appreciation will lift them up — you never know what kind of day they are having. It can always be about the small things that we appreciate. That day, he really put a smile on my face and he really lifted my spirit up. Do you want to know the 10 reasons?! Please check it out.
Last Week’s Topic: Watch What Happens When I Get “Mad,” what I mean by that is being uncomfortable and getting out of my comfort zone sometimes inspires my best work. I like to think the best gifts are not wrapped in beautiful tissue paper, but sometimes they come in sand paper. When I have to roll up my sleeves and work hard at something, these are the times I learn the most and it ends up being the most rewarding. If you want to see what got me mad this time… check out the video!
I’VE BEEN GOING NUTS PUTTING EVENTS ON THE CALENDAR PLEASE DON’T MISS OUT!!!
BTW… The Hat Decorating event is not happening on the 10th and just another reminder I won’t be hosting the Gold Cup this Fall, so reach out to each other and have some fun without me :( !!!

I know what you’re thinking! Are there two Yulia’s?? That’s her twin-sister Jane who’s visiting from Russia.
I am Marci Hunter the Owner of Styled For You a personal styling/wardrobe consultant boutique servicing the VA/DC area. I was introduced to Keula through a mutual client-to-friend, who thought we would have shared interests, and she was right! I have known Keula a little over 2 and a 1/2 years now. She has become a colleague and a friend. It is great to find a group that doesn't find my over zealous fashion nature to be over the top. This is a group of fun, supportive, and fancy women that only Keula Binelly could cultivate.
Not enough thank you to Janina, for being my assistant, a good friend and helping me get my Port-English out on the newsletter :)
