#FashionRule: #OfficeWear should have just 3 to 4 colors

DC blurs all sorts of lines.  Your obsession becomes your career (politics, PR, fashion etc.)  Your career becomes your social life.  And your private and public image become interchangeable.  That’s why you must always dress to impress.  In this town, going from day-to-night means, means seeing the sunset with your work phone in tow.
