When we first thought of the idea for this blog, a common response was, "there is no fashion in politics." However, we beg to differ. Just take a look at Michelle Obama who has proven them all wrong. Even before Barack Obama was elected president, every newspaper and magazine was consumed with what Michelle was wearing. Since Barack Obama was elected president, Michelle Obama has not put on a pair of socks without someone covering what brand they are. Now, it's time for the rest of the politicians to follow her lead. Gentlemen, tuck in your shirts and straighten your ties. Ladies, it's time to update your St. John's or try something a little more chic.

So, follow our blog. We will not only be providing commentary on what our politicians are wearing, we will be offering expert advice. While we know a new suit will not alter the current economic state of our country, it can reflect the current changes in Washington that mark a new era in politics. It is a proven fact that the better one looks, the more confidence he/she bestows. If there is one thing our country needs right now, it is confidence in our leadership. So, we will take this opportunity to encourage our politicians to dress the part and throw some color on to bring life to these dark times. We know good fashion can be affordable.

So, to all you politicians or politician "hopefuls," fashion help is only a phone call or email away. We are here to put you on the right fashion path to lead- whichever direction your political future may take you- always looking your best.

How hot is he!! The always handsome and well-dressed Mark Kennedy Shriver dining at Cafe du Parc, at the Willard Hotel.

With the start of Summer, in comes the interns with the sleekest, chicest summer accessories. Sara Gould and Stephanie Rice, both interning with the Treasury Department, are sporting cool shades, the trendy long gold chain necklace, the always-in scarf and a colorful orange handbag.

We are a full-service wardrobe consultation and personal shopping company in the Washington, DC area. We can take the guess work out of what to wear, how to wear it, and when to wear it.

A lot of change has come to DC, BUT, the most exciting and fun change has been in fashion. The whole world is now watching and reporting on the political and fashion trends of our own DC. We love being a part of this new scene and want you to be part of it, too. Join us in following the fashion leaders and followers during their travels around the Nation’s Capital.

Which one of these is not like the other? The politician uniform is a dark suit and a conservative tie. While we are always looking for something new and different, all of these politicians have carried off a first-rate uniform.
Starting from left to right, Senator Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, Congressman Steny Hoyer, House Majority Leader, and Congressman Chris Van Hollen.

The T.V.- appointed District Attorney of New York, Jack McCoy, also known as Sam Waterson, looked ever so dapper at the International Refugee 30th Anniversary Dinner. We could only hope that all District Attorneys could dress as sharp.


Fashion finds its way to the Hill’s local watering holes. Well-suited, Andy Jazwick, was seen at The Monocle in a charcoal pinstripe suit with a single pop of color, his teal polka dot tie. It’s classic, with a twist. Beth Bresee glammed it up at Tortilla Coast in a modern double-breasted jacket.

We look forward to bringing you the fashion trends of the Hill and around DC. Make sure you look your best as you leave the house because we might feature you in one of our upcoming blog entries. Don’t be caught off guard.
