As the temperature rises, the dress code on the Hill becomes more relaxed. Laura Donahoe, of Van Scoyoc Associates, was seen leaving the Russell Senate Office Building wearing a trendy printed Craig Taylor Inc. shirt dress. Kathy Marshall, interning with the Department of Justice, was found at 1600 Penn wearing hip white pants and a flirty ruffled top, creating a light and breezy feel.

Once upon a time, on a big hill where very important decisions are made, there was a tale of two girls. One girl was a very good dresser and one girl was very bad. The good dresser, Maggie Juliand, a Legislative Assistant for Congresswoman Louise M. Slaughter, was wearing a feminine black and white sun dress with an adorable matching black cardigan and neutral sandals. She was not only good for her sense of style, but for her ability for find a bargain. The dress was found at Marshall's for under $50.

The bad dresser on the other hand, who will remain nameless, had no style. Where to begin? Perhaps we will start from top to bottom- a plain black mock-turtleneck, tucked into a dull and drab tight charcoal skirt, finished off with a pair of tall black winter boots. We thought is was July, not the end of February???

The best accessory for men this summer is the tie. Vibrant colors add a pop to those dark suits. David Krone, Senator Reid's Chief of Staff, Jake Perry, also from Senator Reid's office, Michael Meadow, The Architect of the Capitol, and Ted Okon, of Community Oncology Alliance...each tie is better than the next.


  1. I think it is funny that a Justice intern has an LV bag. As a government lawyer, I wonder how may of the attorneys there have them (for work hours) or even at all.

  2. Aw I love dresses and the dresses that the girls wear in the photos are so amazing, it looks really classy, I could use it in a party night but in a fancy place! excellent pics!
