Midnight at the Oasis

HHH has found the perfect outfit for the unpredictable Houston weather. Designer Carla McMahon’s love of Morocco, and all things kasbah-esque, has lead her to create specialty tunics and caftans that are elegant, comfortable, and best of all figure flattering. No two caftans are alike, so no worries on seeing yourself at a party.

Carla’s kaftans have a slimming seam down each side that allows the wearer to look fitted in front, with the back loose and flowing. The prices begin at $125. Each one is a work of art whether it has beading or trim, silk or chiffon. You can wear a tunic version with leggings or jeans, and the longer ones for dinner, or a party. Contact Carla at carlitamac@gmail.com, to find your kaftan.

CHILDREN AT RISK hosted their Annual Accolades Luncheon “Burst the Human Trafficking Bubble,” Former First Lady Barbara Bush and CNN’s Amber Lyon were outstanding in their roles as guest speakers, at the event that included over 500 in attendance, and raised in excess of $360,000 for Texas children. Father-daughter duo Joseph Sutton and Megan Sutton-Reed co-chaired the luncheon. The setting was simply beautiful, with crystal chandeliers, fabulous window table seating, and lavishly set tables. As guests arrived, they were greeted with classical music performed by Project GRAD Chamber Orchestra, champagne, and balloons filled with raffle tickets. When guests purchased a balloon they got a chance to “Burst the Human Trafficking Bubble.” Inside the balloon was a prize ticket. Others participated in an exclusive Live Auction boasting 8.5 carat diamond earrings donated by Zadok Jewelers, a paradise getaway to Bora Bora, Tahiti, as well as a Sports Lover’s Dream Package with tickets to the Texans, Rockets, Astros and Dynamo! CHILDREN AT RISK honored Janet and Robert Zincke, and FOX-26 News for their commitment to driving change for children. Honorees received an award designed by college student Aaron Malone.

Accolades is an annual event that benefits CHILDREN AT RISK’s Center to End the Trafficking and Exploitation of Children, an action-based institute that works to generate solutions to the human trafficking crisis through policy, advocacy, education, and collaborate programs.
