First Lady of Style

Republican, Democrat, Independent, Conservative, Liberal, Capitalist or Socialist... No matter what your views are on policy or the current affairs of state, there are only 2 things to remember on Tuesday, November 4th:

1)  VOTE
2)  Be PC
(Politically Chic)

Scoff if you will, feminists, but the suffragettes didn't... err...suffrage... for us not to step out in style on election day!  So FASHIONISTAS UNITE!  Its time to throw your hat in to the ring and VOW to WOW! Bring some VOGUE to the voting booth...  Put the ELLE in the election process... embed some BAZAAR into those ballots!

And now for our first look:

The NEW Red White and Blue
All my women who independent! (throw your hands up at me) Not a Republican or a Dem?  Show off your red, white, and blue with a wayward edge in this oh-so-warm long line cardigan, asymmetrical tee, and comfy boyfriend jeans.  The bootie, stud trimmed hat, and military-inspired dog tags let everyone know that you're a rebel with a cause.

Road to the White House

Who says you can't show up to the polls looking like a scandal waiting to happen?  Two things about my girl Olivia Pope: 1) She always looks GREAT, and 2) She always gets what she wants.  Take that attitude to the voting booth, and your candidate just might win!  And don't get it twisted, new fashion laws allow white after labor day! Tastefully, of course, but it is allowed.  If your mother's fashion advice from many moons ago is still ringing in your head, try a winter white, which has a little cream in the mix and doesn't appear so bright amid the rich colors of fall.

Wall Street Chic

Occupy the essence of Wall Street in these window pane trousers that resemble those crazy charts that indicate the rise and fall of our eminent doom, paired with a vibrant straight fit top-- a must have for this season, and a smart pair of derbies (the shoes).  The geek glasses, statement necklace, and leather tote bring added notes of excitement to a place that can be... well... A great depression.

Woman of Honor

Why not dress up the dark side of our country's victorious past with a soldierly spin on Military fashion.  Double-breasted blazers are a big hit for both men and women this fall, and these satin olive pants are to die for! ... Honorably, of course.  Add feminine flair with the perfect navy pumpcamouflaged timepiece, and a rouged lip.

Judge Cutie

Justice is the new black in this stylish ensemble that pays homage to one of the most important branches of our government.  Persecute those fashion felons in this amazing sweater that features a detachable collar, a modern swing 
skirt -- another key item for your closet this season, and leather and suede gavel banging booties!  Justice is blind in these D&G hater blockers, and  black opaque tights are always within the legal limits of Fall Fashion Law (yes, that is a thing).
