Fashion sketches have no size chart, and that’s ok

Ladies, we need to have a serious conversation about fashion, clothing, and models, and real women. Because, as you might suspect, it’s hard to use all four of those words in one sentences and expect an apples-to-apples comparison any which way. Maybe I’m preaching to the choir, but it seems that some Beyonce fans aren’t […]

Catch you tomorrow, fashionistas!

    I’m off today as we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. To those of you who are participating in a day of service today (or already did over the weekend), I salute you! I’ll be back tomorrow with a new Goodwill Good Buy of the Week. If you’re tuning in to inauguration festivities […]

Find your inaugural style at Goodwill

Unless my DC readers have been hiding under a rock, you all know that Barack Obama will be sworn in for a second time at Monday’s inauguration ceremony. And with that swearing in comes the parade! The dancing! The potential for frostbite! (Wait…that’s just me remembering 2009.) Let’s focus on the dancing. I’ve thought about […]

Who will design Michelle Obama’s second inaugural ball gown?

President Obama’s second inauguration this month won’t be quite as glitzy and glamorous as his first round of parties in 2009. After all, the economy is not so great, and it would look bad to get all-out lavish around Washington. But that doesn’t mean we’re not getting dressed up! Well, I probably won’t be—but Mrs. […]

Powder blue power sweater

Hello ladies, are you ready for another marathon 3-cups-of-coffee-before-noon busy day? I know, being swamped at work, school, or home isn’t exactly fun. But I found a sweater that can help you look good while you’re on the go. Maybe it’ll make you feel good goo! Today’s Good Buy is a sweater by designer Tracy […]

Divided attention: From shoulder to sole

Dear reader, I usually keep my posts to one topic so we don’t get overwhelmed by all the fashion-y goodness in the world. But it’s Monday, so let’s ease into this summer day, okay? We can dabble. A little fashion news dabbler. First, ladies, and gents, can we please take a look at Michelle Obama? […]

Whether you lean to the right or the left, it’s easy for fashionistas from all political corners to agree on one thing: Our First Lady sure does have some style. After this week’s State of the Union Address, I thought it might be a good time to look back at First Lady Michelle Obama’s looks […]

Drooling over Jason Wu (for Target)

I’ve been drooling over these new Jason Wu for Target looks for days now. Hands down, this is going to be my favorite Target-designer collaboration (so far), and I might actually hang out online until midnight on February 5 to to try to claim some of these budget-friendly frocks. While Missoni had shoppers knocking down […]

Fashion Controversy- Michelle Obama

I’m just catching up with last week’s major fashion controversy, which revolved around everyone’s favorite current First Lady (what competition!), Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama has been getting A+++ reviews for her sense of fashion since the campaign trail, and she’s often spotted wearing famous designer duds for official and unofficial state business (better known as […]

Issey Breaks His Silence

I came across a moving editorial in the New York Times recently by Issey Miyake. Of course, my eyes perked up at the mention of a fashion designer. But I am also a big fan of Issey Miyake and was curious to see what he had to say. Interestingly enough, his editorial was about Obama. […]
